Summary: Writer Ella Young said that while sitting outside the Madrona Hotel she saw ‘a cigar shaped craft shoot out of a cloud beyond the bay, and across the sky toward Tamalpais.’ It was not shaped like any airship she knew. ‘It was long and slender, of yellow color, and traveling at great speed… it seemed to progress by alternately contracting and elongating its body.’

Summary: In 1988, Italian ufologist Paolo Fiorino managed to hear the testimony of Francesca C. on what she saw nearly 60 years before, in 1927, whereas she was 11 or 12 years old. She lived in Corbola in the district of Rovigo, and one morning when she was going to get drinking water close to the river Po, whereas she was on the bank, she saw a round and luminous object coming from above; which dove in the water at approximately to 7 or 8 meters of her. Perplexed and partly frightened, she initially thought of the possibility of a plane which would have fallen, but after what seemed to her to be three to five minutes, the object came out of the water which seemed to bubble, with many bubbles, and left in the sky. She said she managed to observe, inside the object, without Fiorino being able to determine if it were through a porthole or a window or otherwise, a “small man” visible only from the neck up, so that he gave the impression to be sitting. His head was not covered and his features were similar to those of the humans. Francesca C. indicated to Fiorino on his request, that she had heard a noise like that produced by planes, similar to a whistling sound, without her being sure of that detail. She also remembered to have been dazzled by an intense luminosity coming from the object, even saying that she “almost lost” visual capacity due to the dazzling. This luminosity was present both at the time of the descent and the departure of the object. She evaluated the diameter of the object as approximately of 2 or 3 meters, but it was difficult to evaluate how approximate this was. Not knowing how to explain what she had seen, she remained staggering and rather perplexed. Returned home with the two water buckets, she did not tell anything to her mother nor to others for fear not to be believed. It is only after approximately 30 years that she told about it to her son and her husband. Fiorino notes that the witness used the word UFO only once during the interview.
