When flying over the region of Goiânia, State of Goiás, during flight VASP 374 from Confins Airport [Belo Horizonte-MG] to the Airport of Goiânia-GO, the aircraft crew spotted an unidentified flying object with a round shape, which ” gave the impression of solidity. Twice the size of a full moon. A compact block of light “. The UFO had a solid white color, and its speed gave an “impression” of being close to the speed of the aircraft, and perhaps “higher than it.” According to the reporting witness, the UFO was about 3,000 feet high, making a West-to-Northwest trajectory. The object “at first [kept] the bow opposite to that of the aircraft. Then it moved to [the position] ‘1-hour’ of the aircraft at bow 330°, having been observed until it disappeared from the side of the aircraft. The aircraft was Confins-Goiânia bow”. The reporting witness noted in the report that he “never saw anything like it”.
