AUG 23rd, 1996. Time: 03:00pm. Duration: 20 minutes. In the city of Carpina, State of Pernambuco, three people saw “through the bedroom window a very strong light moving in the sky”. According to the report, the UFO sighted was “just a light, with no definition of shape” and its size resembled that of “an aircraft headlight seen. Its color was clear, “as if it were a car headlight” and its speed was high when moving around, but it varied.
The unidentified flying object was seen performing “several evolutions, managing to stand still in the air, alternating fast and slow trajectories.” According to the witnesses, the “last trajectory seen by the UFO, [was] towards the coast of PE.” The weather was cloudy, yet the witnesses said they observed the UFO “as if it were an aircraft landing at the airport, seen from the TWR [Control Tower] or the lobby [of an airport].” As for the altitude, at the beginning the UFO was “low almost on the ground, after [that] it went up”.
