APRIL 4th, 1997. Time: 00h38 am. Duration: more than 30 minutes. In the Paranaguá region, Paraná State, four people spotted an unidentified flying object “the size of a Boeing” with other small objects circling around it. According to the witnesses, the UFOs varied in color, from white to red, flew at a low altitude, “quite low, about 1,000m” and very close to each other. The unknown objects were moving at a “slow speed until they came to a complete stop”. They were sighted at a distance of approximately 30km from the observers, continuously for half an hour, under a clear sky of good visibility, and then moved from East to West.
