A description of the experience
As quoted in Wonders In The Sky - Unexplained Aerial Objects From Antiquity To Modern Times - and Their Impact on Human Culture, History, and Beliefs - Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck
The facts date back to when the inhabitants of two neighboring villages, Albisola and Stella, decided to fight over territorial issues. A bloody attack took place. The sky was totally clear of clouds, when, an hour after midday, a small white cloud came from the east, so bright it seemed to collect all the rays of the sun. Dazzled by the light, the fighters heard a sweet clear voice repeating three times the word "peace," and then everything disappeared. All were astonished, their eyes looking up at the sky, and they abandoned their weapons.
