Italy1960Date: September 26, 1960   PROBABLY HOAX

Location: Italy
Time:
Summary: A trio of UFOs photographed in Italy in 1960. The skeptic’s doubts are immediately raised by the extraordinary blackness of the images compared to the bleached-out background, which suggests the images are pasted onto a window or a print before re-photographing. UFO believers counter this objection by saying the contrast may be caused by magnetic, gravitational or microwave emissions from the alien craft.
