JAN 13th, 1998. Time: 10h30 pm. Duration: 20 minutes. In the Cabral neighborhood, Curitiba, State of Paraná, two people observed an unidentified and large flying object, shaped like a “big ball with a tail”. The UFO sighting took place on a clear night and the witnesses reported that the object was flying at “considerable speed”, but it was “as if it were sliding” when moving. The unknown object was, according to one of the witnesses, at an altitude about “5 times higher” than the “airplanes that take off from Bacacheri Airport in Curitiba” and from the North they went towards the Coast.
