NOV 18th, 1999. Time: 04h30 am. Duration: 40 minutes. Using binoculars, three people in Pelotas observed a gigantic round white and yellow UFO that appeared suddenly coming at a very high speed and then stopped and hovered for 40 minutes until it moved from South to North at an altitude of 4,000m and about 2 km away from the observers. Additional observations regarding the UFO sighting by the witness to the COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command] detail the features of the sighted object:
“The object was huge (the size of a small football stadium) and moved at a very high speed, while emitting a white light with yellow tones.
It came from the south quadrant (in relation to the observer) and immediately stopped at a point northeast of the observer. There it stayed for approximately 40 minutes and, from time to time, two smaller lights (white or yellow) came out and went to the ground.
With the sunlight, according to the rapporteur, the huge object became invisible and disappeared.
The rapporteur informed that he filmed the object for a long time and that his son was afraid.
He also said that during the time the object was hovering, an aircraft came from the northwest direction, went southeast passing under the object. “
