- On December 18, 2004 at 15:45 hrs, a rural contractor
managed to photograph a strange flying object in a field near Santa Rosa.
- Roberto Maggio was taking snapshots of the various machines
working on tasks related to harvesting without ever being aware of the
UFOs presence. The object was not seen by other persons working in the
- At night, upon downloading the digital photos from his
camera to the PC, he was startled to detect an object tha showed a blurry
outline. On top and bottom, however, the object was somehow sharper, presenting
a darker central area. Maggio was also able to detect a small, blurry dot
in an earlier photo which was supposedly the same object, but appearing
with a better perspective in the next shot.
- The witness claims not having noticed insects or any
other objects which could have led to misinterpretation moving in front
of his lens, prior to taking the photographs.
