In a few words, here are the main arguments of the skeptics on

- The  round trace on the ground was made by a truck. The
witness Renato Nicolai admited it could have been, although he
confirmed at the same time that it was the exact place where he
had seen the UFO land in his garden. Nice old man!

- About the strange effects on the surrounding plants, measured
by professor Bounias : he goofed in his tests, and CNES engineer
Velasco doctored the plants in his micro wave oven (a brillant
suspicion of Robert Alessandri);

- Finally, the obvious conclusion: Nicolai made a joke.

Case solved!
