A flight controller in service at the Teresina Airport Control Tower, State of Piauí, along with 6 other witnesses, had visual contact with a small round silver and red unidentified flying object, moving fast vertically to reach an altitude of approximately 5,000ft. The UFO moved in a zigzag manner without leaving traces of condensation. Additional information from the COMDABRA’s [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command] report describes that:
“The observer was in SVC [service] at TWR-TE [Air Control Tower] and was alerted by observers in the maneuvering area and started to observe the phenomenon with the help of binoculars, with his service partner as a witness. He contacted the ACC-RE [Recife Approach Control] to ask him about the knowledge of any plots on the radar or plane in the area and after hearing a negative answer the ACC-RE passed the information to COPM while still seeing the object “
