MAY 26th, 1996. Time: 18h20. Duration: 60 minutes. In the Santa Cândida neighborhood in Curitiba, State of Paraná, about 30 people followed the erratic movements of two unidentified flying objects in the “sunset direction” at about 5km of altitude. According to one of the witnesses who reported to COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command], the UFOs were shaped like “lights that turn on and off”, with silver and orange colors. The unknown objects were flying at high speed, positioning themselves one above the other, when making vertical and horizontal movements. The witness also reported seeing the UFOs with the naked eye, under a clear sky, and claimed to have taken photographs, but the photos were not made available with this file.
