JAN 8th, 1998. In the city of Diamantino, a witness who declined to be identified, reported to COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command] the fall of an unidentified flying object that happened 40 days before he reported the fact. According to the witness, the UFO was big, blue and made a big noise when it crashed around 8:30pm. The object flew in a South/North direction before falling. The complementary data from COMDABRA brings the observations made by the military who was contacted regarding the sighting: “The observer declined to identify himself or provide further details. He informed that the object is close to the city of Diamantino-MT on BR-364.”
