JUNE, 26th 1991. Time: 13:53. Duration: 10 minutes. Four military men of the Brazilian Air Force, when flying over the region of Maricá, in the State of Rio de Janeiro, observed an unidentified flying object with the shape of a “very large, pointed star, 8 to 10 times brighter than the VARIG [an airliner]”. Also according to the reporting witness, the UFO emitted intense white lights, but after the Campos [RJ] region until it reached the Vitória [ES] region it turned red. The UFO moved at the same speed as the military aircraft, about 3NM [nautical miles] away, at an altitude of 1,000 meters above the aircraft, and always in the same “11 o’clock” position in relation to the right wing (Northwest) “of the military aircraft”. Also according to the report, the UFO “when its color changed, the intensity of its brightness decreased”. The sighting was done in good visibility conditions, with “clear sky above and a very clear moon” and “it was photographed by CTA TEN […] with objective lens”. These photo files have not been shared with this file case. Complementary data from COMDABRA [Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command]: “There was also observation by VARIG 320 in FL 310 [31.000ft] UA 314 (P-95) in contact with ACC-BRASILIA at 127.3 VARIG 124.2 Constant lights – only monochromatic light.”
