People on a plane spotted a UFO between Varginha and São Tomé das Letras-MG [1998]

JUNE 15th, 1998. Time: 07h21 am. Duration: 1 hour. During a flight from Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, to Rio de Janeiro, RJ, as their plane flew over the region between the cities of Varginha and São Tomé das Letras, both in Minas Gerais, the pilot and fourteen people on board spotted an unidentified flying object, with a round and flat (discoidal) shape. The unknown object, according to the report, was 30NM [nautical miles] away and at an altitude below 2,000ft. The UFO, which seemed to be “bigger than a star” when observed in the firmament, went towards the East, without leaving trails of condensation. One of the passengers filmed the sighting, but the video was not made available in this case file.
