MAY 13th, 1996. Time: 16h00 pm. Duration: 5 hours and 30 minutes. In Caxambu, State of Minas Gerais, several people observed a UFO sighting for more than five hours, which was even reported on local TV. According to the witness who reported the sighting to COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command], the unidentified flying object was round like a “luminous ball”, varied in size and it was yellow-orange in color. The object moved circularly with variable speeds at an altitude of approximately 3km and left a trail “in the shape of a 1/4 circumference”. Although the witness followed the event with clear skies and with the naked eye together with “trusted people”, she said that the sighting was also filmed by her and that she would send the copies of the video to COMDABRA. This video was not made available with this declassified file.
