UFOs Stop Football Match in Italy
A football match between Italian sides Fiorentina and Pistoiese in Florence, Italy was interrupted on October 27, 1954 by a most unusual occurrence: the sighting (by over 10,000 fans in attendance) of UFOs hovering over the field. Several large, metallic, cigar shape craft were spotted hovering over the field and over other major sites in the city. According to Gigi Boni, who was eyewitness to the event: "I remember clearly seeing this incredible sight...they were moving very fast and then they just stopped. It all lasted a couple of minutes. I would like to describe them as being like Cuban cigars. They just reminded me of Cuban cigars, in the way they looked."
The event has been ascribed to naturally occurring phenomenon, including the migration of large spider colonies, although chemical analysis of the remnants of organic material that occurred during the event does not support this.
