An air traffic controller reported the sighting of a UFO in Vitória-ES [1984]

March 28, 1984. Time: 9:59 pm.

Report by the Head of APP / TWR of Vitória-ES. [Control of Approach to the Control Tower at the Airport of Vitória, State of Espírito Santo].

Translation below:

At approximately 21:59 (local time), I spotted a flying object in the South / North direction, flying across the continent. The body was slightly flattened and rectangular, almost oval and surrounded by strong green lighting. The light was strong around the body and left a small but considerable luminous tail. It was all green.

The speed with which it was moving in the South / North direction from the radial 260, when I saw it, approximately, was amazing. It disappeared on the horizon in less than 10 (ten) seconds. The altitude I suppose it flew would be in the range of 1,500 meters to 2,000 meters, if not higher. Several people also spotted in the City when the object passed over the TV Tower / Airport and later called this Control Tower.

At the moment I contacted the ACC Brasília, which was hard to answer my call for an interception by Radar. When the ACC BS looked at the area he said that there was nothing to report. It was a lightning shift and the object had its own means of propulsion, moving along a straight path and at a constant altitude. It was a real spectacle. Great lighting around the body and visible tail. No sound of turbines or vibration was observed, although the body moved at a relatively low altitude. The body was all light. I transcribe the fact for the necessary measures. That was the picture. (Below is a sketch of the object) in TWR’s LRO. [see document link].
