JAN 13th, 1998. Time: 00h29 am. Duration: 50 minutes. Under good visibility conditions with a sky with few clouds, four people in Curitiba, State of Paraná, spotted a round orange UFO at “very slow speed”. The unidentified flying object was very bright and flew in a straight line heading towards the Serra do Mar. According to the observations made by the COMDABRA’s [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command] representative:
“The informant, at a certain point in the completion of the questionnaire, said that she needed to hang up because people were calling her to see the object’s shape change, around 03h52z. She returned the call to conclude the data at 04h01z. It is important to note that the referred informant called COPM II asking about the detection of the object, gave the necessary information and again, at the end of the information, said that “she is curious to know if the radars caught anything”. No information has been released on this fact. She was told that any communication about the event will be passed to her by Brasília at the address mentioned. “
