In the Recanto das Emas region, Distrito Federal, eight people observed a round white UFO at a high altitude, performing “slow and sporadic” movements for more than half an hour. According to the witnesses, the sighting of the unidentified flying object was carried out with the naked eye and in good weather. The observers did not know how to estimate the distance between them and the sighted UFO, nor did they know how to inform the direction in which it went. Also according to the report by COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command], it was observed that: “TWR BR [Brasília Airport Control Tower] and COPM 1 found nothing abnormal”.
