ISSUE NO. 369 -  4 OCTOBER 2002

(Centro Italiano Studi Ufologici, CISU)



A clamor was raised all over Italy because of the mysterious
object sighted by a night watchman in Orbassano (Turin), in the
early hours of Saturday, 28 September.

According to the deposition given to Carabinieri policemen by
the witness who called them, the appearance of the UFO
phenomenon was preceded by control monitors in the surveillance
cabin failing, at the same time that the electronic-controlled
gate opened by itself in the truck rest-area.

The time was 4:27 a.m., and the young man went outside to
investigate what was going on. As he returned to his cabin, he
felt something akin to a slight breeze, which was accompanied by
a whistling noise. He then found himself enshrouded in a beam of
light emanating from above. Also, above a streetlamp he saw a
luminous disc approximately 3 meters in diameter rotating on
itself, which streaked out of sight after a few seconds, as if
swallowed up by the sky.

The witness awakened a truck driver who was asleep in his truck
in the rest area, but this man hadn't noticed a thing. In the
cabin, the monitor came back on. The frightened watchman then
telephoned the Carabinieri and, still shaken when the patrol
squad on duty arrived, recounted everything that had transpired.
He proceeded to repeat everything in a further deposition, which
took place that Sunday at their barracks.
