DECEMBER 23, 1978, SAN VITO CHIETINO, CHIETI, ITALY, BUCCO FAMILY:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

The ufology group SUF reportedly said that in San Vito Chietino, Italy, on December 23, 1978, at 08:30 p.m., the Bucco family was returning from visiting relatives when a dazzling light began following their vehicle.

The light overtook the vehicle and the vehicle suddenly stopped without the driver applying the brakes.

At the same time, a strange little man crossed road in front of the vehicle in strange bounding jumps. Mr. Bucco thought he had struck the figure with the car. The figure then quickly bounded away and disappeared into a nearby pine grove.

Francesco and Fiorentina Bucco reported seeing one humanoid, but the other two passengers in the vehicle reported seeing two. The figure or figures wore brown "astronaut"-like suits, large helmets with black square visors, and 5 digit white gloves. The beings were about 1 meter in height, and moved over the road in a strange unison-robot like manner, floating 20-35 cm above the road as if bouncing on an invisible cushion.

Mr. Bucco noticed a green flashlight like object wrapped over the humanoid's shoulder.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in San Vito Chietino, Italy, on December 23, 1978, at 2030, the Bucco family was returning from visiting relatives when a dazzling light began following their vehicle. The light overtook the vehicle and the vehicle suddenly stopped without the driver applying the brakes. Then at the same time a strange little man crossed road in front of the vehicle in strange bounding jumps. Mr. Bucco thought he had struck the figure with the car. The figure then quickly bounded away and disappeared into a nearby pine grove. Francesco and Fiorentina Bucco reported seeing one humanoid, but the other two passengers in the vehicle reported seeing two. The figure or figures wore brown "astronaut" like suits, large helmets with black square visors, and 5-digit white gloves. The beings were about 1 meter in height, and moved over the road in a strange unison-robot like manner, floating 20-35 cm above the road as if bouncing on an invisible cushion. Mr. Bucco noticed a green flashlight like object wrapped over the humanoid's shoulder.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Archivio S.U.F."

[Ref. pm1:] PINO MORELLI:

Lastly, on December 23. in the presence of the family Bucco from S.Vito Chietino (CH) a CE3 occurred while tehy were in a car, with a UFO spotted following the car and next the appearance of beings tall like children, who slipped while hopping at average height.

Points to consider:

It is regrettable that I could find only little information on a case that apparently had multiple witnesses and is of an apparent high strangeness.
