    Unidentified objects have been reported (and blamed for power failures) on power plants all over the world: the majority of cases come from the US, Brasil and Britain, though there is also an unsubstantiated report about an object, variously described as a UFO or an enormous bird, flying over the Chernobyl power plant a few days before that tragic accident (note: the accident happened because of a series of colossal human errors so it cannot be blamed on the "supernatural" factor).
    While the witness is absolutely right in not ruling out a superheated steam release as cause, the phenomenon is well known and steam cannot account for all of them.
    This reminds me of a case in Italy in 1973, when a large object was seen floating over the military base of Treviso-Istrana. An helicopter was scrambled and the crew identified the object as a very large inflatable balloon. The pictures they took are sometimes reprinted in dubious publications as "proof". These balloons were commercially available in the ’70s, with sizes up to 100ft and were usually shaped like a rugby ball and black colored. They were banned at the end of the ’70s because they were deemed an hazard to low flying aircrafts and they played tricks on military radars.
