Sighting Description: In tutta la penisola italiana si susseguirono avvistamenti ed osservazioni di una grande palla di colore verde-azzurro, che ha attraversato il cielo a grande velocità e con una luminosità molto intensa. Addirittura quattro piloti hanno avuto modo di osservare il fenomeno. Alcuni testimoni avevano addirittura creduto di aver visto quest’oggetto precipitare nelle acque antistanti il Lazio, tant’è che una motovedetta della Capitaneria di Porto avevano effettuato perlustrazioni per alcune ore. Il mistero è stato poi risolto essendo l’oggetto osservato solo una parte dei frammenti lasciati dalla cometa Thatcher.        

Sighting Description: Over the entire Italian peninsula, reports of sightings and observations followed one after the other of a large green-blue ball crossing the sky at high speed and with a very intense brightness. Even four pilots were able to observe the phenomenon. Some witnesses absolutely believed that they saw this object fall into the waters opposite Lazio so much so that a motor patrol vessel from the Harbor Master's Office carried out reconnaissance for a few hours. The mystery was solved with the observed object being part of the fragments left by the comet Thatcher.
