ROME - Italy indulged in a bout of UFO fever on Tuesday (Jan 7) after witnesses reported seeing a strange green light flash through the evening sky near Rome's main airport.
Air traffic controllers said the sighting on Monday was probably the result of an optical effect caused by the light.
Three pilots at Fiumicino airport and air traffic controllers said they saw a luminous green sphere speed through the sky from east to west for a few seconds along the coastline near Rome.
The light, which died out above a pine grove, failed to register on radar screens. Police investigated but found nothing on the ground.
