JAN 1st, 2015. At 03h04am, in Guaratiba, Rio de Janeiro-RJ, in the vicinity of the Michelin factory, eleven (11) people reported seeing an unidentified flying object with a round shape and white and blue lights. According to the report given by one of the witnesses to the representative of COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command], a student pilot, the object’s shape was of “an inaccurate point”, moving “faster than an approaching aircraft”. The same student pilot described that the object’s approximate altitude was 3,000 feet and that it performed sudden movements. The same witness claimed to have observed the object with binoculars, and also to have tried to film the object, but without success. The entire sighting by the 11 witnesses lasted about one minute under good weather conditions.
