The Flying Humanoids; The Macerata Connection

Spanish UFO researcher Jose Antonio Caravaca found a UFO encounter with similarities to one he presented here earlier and at his American site (http://caravaca-files.blogspot.com):

On December 7, 1978, at about 23:45 hours, Alfonso Marinelli was traveling near Navelli (Abruzzi. Italy), when suddenly his car inexplicably stopped.

Leaving the vehicle, he observed two lights flying together, very slowly, toward him, about 10 or 15 meters above the ground.

As the lights approached, he saw two "little men" wearing highly fluorescent suits, similar to astronauts, with flattened silver helmets on their heads.

The beings flew upright. Mr. Marinelli did not hear any sound of engines or propellers.

The two humanoids had bright lights on their chests, which seemed to be fastened by straps over their shoulders and waist.


Their height was approximately 80 to 90 centimeters.

They flew passed his car, then changed direction and returned to where they came from.

The witness said that the little men did not appear to react to his presence on the road.

Mr. Marineli returned to his journey as his car started up again.

The appearance of the small humanoid reminds us of the 1954 Macerata incident, also in Italy.
