Sighting Description: Intorno alle ore 20:00 un testimone, osservando da casa sua la sponda opposta del Lago Maggiore, più o meno all’altezza di Lesa, vide proprio sul pelo dell'acqua una serie di luci, simili a flash che, accendendosi e spegnendosi, coprivano circa una striscia apparente di 200 metri. Immediatamente il testimone prese un paio di binocoli ma non vide assolutamente nulla, a parte queste luci che sembravano comparire proprio sul pelo dell'acqua. Non poteva trattarsi di riflessi del sole, perché in quel momento era già tramontato dietro il Mottarone e la zona era in ombra. Dopo circa 2 minuti di osservazione il fenomeno cessò improvvisamente.       

Sighting Description: At around 8.00pm from his house on the shore opposite Lake Maggiore, more or less at the same time as Lesa, a witness saw a series of lights on the surface of the water. The lights resembled a camera flash that kept going on and off, and covered a strip of water around 200m long. The witness immediately fetched a pair of binoculars but saw nothing except the lights that seemed to appear right on the surface of the water. He considered that it may have been reflections from the sun, but the sun had already set over Mottarone Mountain and the area was in shade. After he had been watching for around 2 minutes, the phenomenon suddenly stopped.
