DEC 12th, 1998. Time: 09h00 pm. Duration: 30 minutes. In Curitiba, State of Paraná, six (6) people spotted four (4) unidentified flying objects in the Boqueirão neighborhood. According to the witnesses, there were 4 round UFOs: 3 were white and 1 was red. The four objects had the appearance of stars being observed in the firmament and flew slowly. At the beginning of the sighting, the UFOs were 1 km close to the observers, then they moved further away. At first, the objects remained stationary, then they began to perform circular movements and, in the end, they all moved like “shooting stars”, going from North to West.
Other observations in the COMDABRA’s [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command] report detail the sighting made by the seven witnesses:
“First the red light appeared. It stood still for 5 to 10 minutes, and then it was slowly moving away. Meanwhile, a white light appeared circling the red light for 10 to 15 minutes. The white light moved away to the West. The red light then continued and the other two white lights appeared, like a falling star, moving in a straight line, passing close to the red light. The white lights went up and then disappeared. The red light continued for some time and gradually disappeared. “
