AUG 27th, 1996. Time: 10:30 pm. Duration: not determined. In Aracaju, State of Sergipe, a military observed with the naked eye from the balcony of his house “a ball of fire crossing the sky”. According to the witness’s report, the unidentified flying object was round in shape, incandescent, traveling at a “very fast” speed and made a sound only after it passed, “as if it were exploding in the fall”. From the observer’s perspective, the UFO made a “straight path towards the ground”. The report by COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command] also informs that: “Another observer who was at a party, in another neighborhood, noticed the object, but with one more detail: when it was close to disappearing on the horizon, it was divided in two and exploded “.
