In the region of São José dos Macacos, in Armazém, State of Santa Catarina, a group of about 40 people spotted an unidentified, small, round flying object emitting yellow light. The UFO, according to witnesses, flies at low speed but at high altitude, going north and back, as if it were looking for something on the ground.

“An hour after the UFO was seen, 2 aircraft appeared practically following it from a distance. These two aircraft were seen and heard by all present. After the UFO left the viewers’ view towards the north, the aircraft were still heard almost during all morning.
