JAN 14th, 1996. Time: 18h45. Duration: 2 hours. When they were close to their homes in Taguatinga Norte, in the Federal District, five people observed two unidentified flying objects at an altitude of about 3,000 meters. According to the report informed to COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command], the witnesses “were out and saw a huge motionless star; then they saw another object that moved with great speed”. One of the UFOs, according to the description made, was shaped like a white “three-pointed star”, resembling a ‘searchlight in the sky’ and remained stationary during the sighting. The five people saw the UFOs with the naked eye in a clear night sky. The call to inform the sighting to COMDABRA was made while the event was still taking place, around 21h25. The witness who reported the case to the Air Force, “called later to inform that the object was even closer.”
