Hi ya'll, I thought I'd share some of the pics our local newspaper is publishing in these last few days.
All the commotion around the ufo subject began by a pretty nifty sighting about 10 days ago of a "big fireball object" moving at mid-to high speeds on
the sky above some hill formation near the city, called Montalbano if I'm not mistaken.
It was-the newspaper reports-around dusk.
Several people (well, at least 2 or 3 indipendent reports) witnessed this and they thought it was an airplane who caught fire.
After the news got published of course a lot of pics were sent to the newspaper.
There are no pictures of the first and imho more genuine sighting tho, the only interesting one in my opinion
Here they are:
This has already been debunked as a bird by Rome's ufological centre.
Orb like object (dust on lenses?) next to the town's Duomo
Two strong lights above the city, photos taken from a nearby hill. The sequence gives an illusion of slight movement towards the south-east.
The newspaper says they checked from that position in daylight and there are no terrestrial light sources in that spot.
Those 2 orb-like objects remind me of this 2007 video made approximately on the same position of the orbs in the last 3 pics:
The people in the video (possibly elder people) talk about the possibility of it being an airplane, dismissed many times due to the lack of engine
sound for being so low near ground.
I can't really tell if the object/s was/were moving, due to the shortness of the vid and the fact the house is only visible for a short amount of
time. I would think they wouldn't even have considered the possibility of a low flying plane if the object were indeed unmoving.
I asked the newspaper for the original sized pictures twice already, without much luck. As of tonight.
They're all useless, they're just getting published due to the first and important sighting. I'm just reporting them as they publish
them, I'm not at all suggesting they're even notewhorty.
And of course, because in 1954 this and the nearby towns of Prato and Florence were spectators of one of the biggest ufo case in history,
The 1954 Florence Mass Sighting
Here is one of the ATS threads about it:
Once, an entire football stadium witnessed the objects directly above them.
The referee had to suspend the match for a while.
Interesting also, the weird rain of white like “cotton-like” substance during the same period.
