DEC 28th, 1996. Time: 18h05. Duration: 10 minutes. In the Sobradinho region, Distrito Federal, a person, with the naked eye and under a cloudy sky, “in the backyard of his house, observed a strong light moving vertically”. The unidentified flying object, according to the witness, was about 15 km away from the observer, but at an altitude he was unable to estimate. The UFO was round in shape and white in color, but its size was “smaller than that of an airplane” and it had a vertical trajectory when it was sighted. There was no record of condensation trails, nor was there any video recording or photographs taken.
