From the gate of a house in Curitiba, in the State of Paraná, three people followed the movements of an unidentified flying object near the direction of the Moon, towards the East. According to the witness, the object was “very distant”, but with the use of binoculars under a clear night sky of the sighting, he managed to realize that the color of the UFO was red and its shape was round. Still according to the report, the object made vertical movements, “up and down”. No condensation trails were recorded. There was also no photography or filming of the sighting.
