FEB 26th, 1997. Time: 19h:30. Duration: 4 minutes. In the region of Gravataí, State of Rio Grande do Sul, two people observed a UFO “that split into two”. The witnesses reported that the unidentified flying objects were round, red and flew at a slow speed. Observers did not know how to estimate the size of UFOs, but guaranteed that they were 500m away from them. The UFOs flew together, one over the other in a straight path with the top one oscillating vertically. There was no video recording or photograph taken. The sighting took place under a partially cloudy sky and was done with the naked eye, with no observations regarding electrical or electronic interference, or condensation trails.
