On This Day in Weird, December 22...
1919: New Zealand's Ashburton Guardian newspaper reports that sentries assigned to the arsenal at Godego, near Castelfranco Veneto, Italy, have claimed repeated sightings of a luminous humanoid "apparition" with flames shooting from its head. According to a correspondent in Milan, one guard sounded an alarm and others rushed to his aid, all firing their rifles at the eerie figure, whereupon it "instantly dissolved into a great ball of fire." Thereafter, alls sentries fled their posts and some subsequently "lost their minds."
