ITALIAN UFO NEWSFLASH
ISSUE NO. 342 - 31 JANUARY 2002
by the Italian Center for UFO Studies
(Centro Italiano Studi Ufologici, CISU)
- New "Flap": It Was Jupiter!
Dozens alarming reports were received across North and Central Italy during
the late afternoon of Saturday 26 January, concerning the presence of a
luminous object near the Moon.
From 6 p.m. on, numerous residents of Piedmont, Lombardy, Veneto, Emilia
and Tuscany, bombarded the telephone lines of newspapers and UFO
associations to report the strange light, which in reality was only the
planet Jupiter, already shining brilliantly in the southeastern sky for
some weeks running.
It isn't the first time that a particularly prominent planet has touched
off a "flap" of presumed UFO sightings; the last sensational instance was,
on 23 February 1999, the pairing of Venus and Jupiter.
