OCTOBER 4th, 2015. Five minutes after taking off with a plane from Rio de Janeiro Tom Jobim International Airport, a pilot resident in the city of Jundiaí, São Paulo reported seeing three agglutinated blinking lights. Their colors were red, blue and ambar and they were apparently stationary at an altitude of approximately 23.000 ft. The sight, according to the pilot’s report, occurried over Santa Cruz district, in the west zone of Rio de Janeiro city.
The pilot also reported to COMDABRA’s representative [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command], his own impressions about the event: “It is strange the fact that they were between two layers, and [the fact that] the three lights were together, what unabled them to be characterized as normal a aircraft. The pilot also suspected they were a drone or some kind of balloon.
