JAN 6th, 2001. Time: 10am. Duration: 30 minutes. In the city of Foz do Iguaçu, (State of Paraná) bordering Paraguay and Argentina, a sighting of several unidentified flying objects was reported. The UFOs were moving in groups, keeping a 2m distance from each other. The objects were red and “similar to balloons” in shape, but moved at a very low altitude, [100 meters], and also very close to where the witness was.
The report to COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command] concludes informing that:
“Mr. […] reported seeing UFOs for 60 years. Five days ago, some extraterrestrials gave him the message that they were going to dominate the Earth. In yesterday’s sighting, a balloon-shaped mothership appeared with thousands of other square and shiny objects; these followed a Varig aircraft until it disappeared into the clouds; the objects returned and formed a Southern Cross. The rapporteur called the airport and the operators said they had no radar view. “
