      ISSUE NO. 391 - 17 APRIL 2003

      by the Italian Center for UFO Studies
      (Centro Italiano Studi Ufologici, CISU)


      - First-Quarter 2003 Sightings in Italy
      - New Issue of European Journal


      The number of reports of sightings of UFO phenomena, occurring in Italy
      during the month of March and collected to date by the Internet working
      group for the caselog of the Italian Center for UFO Studies (CISU), has
      totaled 27.

      As a result, last month saw the number of gathered reports cut in half,
      with respect to the previous month, bringing in the month of March at its
      usual average and the first quarter at the same levels of preceding years
      (with the exception of 2002, which was "richer" by 50%): i.e. 177 cases.

      The quarter's reports were concentrated more than usual in the northern
      regions, which alone account for two-thirds of the total, with a further
      concentration in Lombardy, Veneto and Emilia, as opposed to Piedmont and

      On the contrary, there was nothing anomalous about the type distribution:
      70% were nocturnal lights and 8% daytime objects. As of special
      characteristics, there occurred three cases involving effects on the
      surrounding environment; three featuring photographs; thirteen involving
      filmed sequences; and a good six objects observed as falling to Earth.

      The complete list of cases along with the update of tables for the last
      three years, the related statistical re-downloads and graphs are already
      available, as always, on the CISU Website.

      [Reports by Giorgio Abraini]


      The eighth issue (and the first of its fourth year-in-print) has come out
      of the "European Journal of UFO and Abduction Studies" (EJUFOAS), published
      in Great Britain by Totton College, having as its mission statement to
      offer the European Continent of a shared tool for scientific ufology.

      The overview of this issue features six articles, penned by English,
      Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian and United States authors, who passed the
      filter of a referee board, rendering this publication unique: a critique on
      and a response to the investigation of a "close encounter of the third
      kind" in Romania; an analysis of the differences in aggressiveness between
      the drawings of aliens made by boys and girls; the worldwide project of the
      UFO photos cataloguing; the real official dossier on Roswell; and the
      presentation of the "academic, international network of multicultural
      research on apparitions" promoted by a Portuguese university.

      Each issue costs 5 Pounds Sterling, the subscription to two issues running
      at 10 Pounds Sterling. Discounts are available for members of the CISU and
      others affiliated associations.
