Correspondence on the possible occurrence of a UFO in Mogi das Cruzes-SP [1991]

MARCH 18th, 1991. 

“Correspondence on the possible occurrence of an unidentified flying object on February 4, 1982, in Mogi das Cruzes, state of São Paulo.”

Dear Mr . Brigadier […]

[…] On 2/2/82, more precisely at 8:05 pm, I was in a local neighborhood, where I lived, observing the weather conditions when I noticed a strange violet light flying at 10° above the horizon in the East-West direction. At first I thought it was an airplane, yet I kept watching it. Suddenly this light  u-turned and started to come towards me (South-North). It was a 90° curve “made in a fraction of a second. As it approached, some colored lights started to light up, apparently, at the bottom.

After crossing the whole neighborhood, the object stopped above the railway nearby; after about 30 seconds, it followed its initial East-West course, again in violet color and always at medium speed. Certainly the Armed Forces and the Brazilian Government itself would compare to some known object, but some points cannot be ignored: its movements prevent it from being a satellite because, as we know, their trajectory is straight. The same movements prevent it from being a balloon because it was visibly controlled. The curve and the strange stop that were made do not allow it to be an airplane. It is also not a heliopter because the object passed over my house and no sound was heard.

Or we were invaded by another nation, which would be ridiculous to think about it, it’s time to publicly admit the existence of these controversial Flying Saucers. This was not the only one sighted in my city. In 1982 alone, two other similar cases occurred, not mentioning the events before and after this year; including photos.
