Лукка
Italy

On February 18, 2024, an unidentified object was filmed over the Italian city of Lucca in the Tuscany region (see video below), which looked like a large white stick in the sky.

In ufology, such UFOs are most often called cigar-shaped and it is believed that these ships are bases, that is, large flying bases with a crew.

This video, posted on the UFO Facebook group, has aroused great interest among both UFO lovers and skeptics.

Firstly, because such a large UFO was photographed during the day (a very rare phenomenon), and secondly, it is not just a standard "cigar", but with some unusual black rings on both edges.

The object seemed to just hover motionless in the sky, but it is unknown how long it stayed there.

It does not look like an airship, drone, or any other type of known aircraft. Unfortunately, it is still unclear whether this video is real or fake.

_______________________

On February 18, 2024, an intriguing video surfaced on the “Latest UFO Sightings” Facebook group, capturing the attention of UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike. The footage, recorded during daylight hours, showcases a remarkable sighting above the historic city of Lucca, located in the heart of Tuscany, Italy. This video has ignited a flurry of discussions and analyses within the community, offering a fresh glimpse into the ever-evolving mystery of unidentified flying objects.

The object in question is described as a thin, long cylindrical UFO, distinguished by an unusual feature: a ring on either side of its body. This distinctive characteristic sets it apart from the more commonly reported shapes of UFOs, sparking curiosity and speculation about its origin and purpose. The clarity of the footage, combined with the object’s unique attributes, has made this sighting a significant point of interest.

Lucca, the backdrop of this extraordinary event, is a city revered for its rich history and cultural heritage. Nestled on the Serchio River in a fertile plain near the Ligurian Sea, Lucca boasts a population of about 89,000 residents. This “Città d’arte” (City of Art) is encircled by intact Renaissance-era city walls, a testament to its historical significance and enduring beauty. The city’s well-preserved historic center is home to architectural marvels such as the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, the Guinigi Tower, and the Cathedral of San Martino, making it a treasure trove of Italian art and history.

Moreover, Lucca has been the birthplace of several world-renowned composers, including Giacomo Puccini, Alfredo Catalani, and Luigi Boccherini, further enriching its cultural landscape. The sighting of a UFO above such a historically and artistically significant city adds an intriguing layer to its already fascinating narrative.

Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Balloons and balls

Balloon — aircraft (balloon), which is used for the flight gas, which is lighter than air.

Balloons - different sizes and shapes size toy, often made of latex. Is inflated with air or other gas. If the gas is lighter than air, the ball gains the ability to fly. The photo looks like a small dot. The colors and the opacity depends on the texture and color of the ball.

Marker wire

Used to make the wire visible, and prevent Christiania wires. Installed at the intersections of waterways, roads, places of migratory birds near airports, etc. the color of the marker balls is chosen so that the balloons are distinguishable from the surrounding area.

Mounting

Photo editing began to be used almost immediately after the advent of photography techniques. They were divided into methods of photomontage without manipulation of the image after receiving the photo and retouching of the photo itself or its negative (plate, film, etc.)

Items on the branches of trees, wires strung and grids

Create the effect of "UFO" or "Silhouette" for the trees by positioning between the branches of the tree (at high altitude for UFOs) or, for example, Bush (for silhouette of a Ghost) of various objects.

For night-time object may be luminous (the Orb with an led, a Bank of candles, etc.), for light - supplementary illumination is not required. The form can be varied, and in the presence of the light source, the illumination can have a wide range of characteristics that can be combined in different ways: the dynamics of light, brightness, color.

Investigation

Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

Since the object is permanently located between the house and the tree, it can be assumed that it is something fixed to a wire or fishing line (for example, a protective casing for the wire. To confirm or refute this version, it is necessary either to find this place (which has not yet been possible, since the only clues are facade elements, but there are quite a lot of similar houses in the city); or a similar object in another place of known destination; or to find mounting elements on the video (they may not be noticeable due to the quality of the video, therefore, it is necessary to find and study the original).
