A sighting that ended the UFO skepticism of a witness in Curitiba-PR [1994]

MARCH 17th, 1994. Time: 22:00. Duration: 2 hours. When riding in her car on Avenida Erasto Gaertner, in Curitiba, State of Paraná, and then at her home, a woman spotted two unidentified flying objects hovering above the two airports in Curitiba. The UFOs observed with a spyglass seemed to have three points, and seen with the naked eye they looked like stars.

According to the witness who reported the sightings, there were 7 more people watching the 2 unknown objects in the sky. According to her, the size of the UFOs were “a little bigger than an airplane”, and their colors were “silver with red lights around”. The objects were to the east of the observer, many kilometers away, at an estimated altitude of 30,000 feet. The witness further stated that the two UFOs positioned themselves “one on top of Afonso Pena Airport and the other on top of Bacacheri Airport, near Cindacta”, moving “up and down quickly.”

In an additional report, the witness also stated that one of the UFOs “made rapid movements, up and down. A large plane that was passing by higher tried to approach the object and then climbed onto its route again”

In the additional observations of the report made by COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command], it is stated that: “The observer affirms from personal experiences that it is not a meteorological balloon and she claims to be a UFO insisting that this phrase should be registered and that, from that moment on, she was no longer a skeptical person”.
