JULY 13th, 1999. Time: 11:50 pm. Duration: 15 minutes. In the vicinity of Ribeirão Preto Airport, State of São Paulo, four people from the same family spotted a yellow light UFO moving in circles and sometimes remaining stationary, before heading west. Below is the description of a family member detailing the UFO sighting to COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command]:
“The light was close to the airport. It came from East to West. It stopped and then rotated 360°, too fast to be any aircraft. The light stopped, started to blink and then disappeared, reappearing at the same point; blinked. An airplane that was coming soon passed by it. The yellow light disappeared and never came back. “
