August 24, 1978, Prata di Principato Ultra, Avellino, Italy, a man:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

UFO catalogue website UFOdna indicates around 2010 that on August 24, 1978, around 07:00 a.m., in Prato Principato Ultra, Italy, there was a "close encounter with a an unidentified craft and its occupants. One box-shaped object was observed by one male 57-year-old witness on a river. No sound was heard."

The website says it comes form the UNICAT catalogue compiled by Willy Smith. It seems no other source is aware of this.

Narratives:

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on August 24, 1978, around 0700, in Prato Principato Ultra, Italy, there was a "close encounter with a an unidentified craft and its occupants. One box-shaped object was observed by one male 57-year-old witness on a river. No sound was heard."

The source is indicated as Smith, Willy, UNICAT computer database.

Points to consider:

Only "UFOdna" seems to report on this case. Given the lack of checking and care that is usual with this source - here the location is mispelled - it is not impossible that this actually refers to a case on October 9, 1984.

The information is totally insufficient anyway.
