MAY 5th, 1980. In the region between Vila Amazônia and Parintins, in the State of Amazonas, when the Corveta of the Brazilian Navy CV Mearim “sailed the Amazon River, in the region of Parintins-AM, between 4:00 am and 4:15 am, some objects, that were not identified by the staff in the service room, were seen; they had a yellowish focus and despite being within range of the radar, they were not captured, being only seen visually by the service personnel at the time.
These objects were standing on the water’s surface, initially three images appeared, and as the Corvette approached, they moved, with the center one rising and the side ones disappearing in opposite directions. In the second appearance, only two objects were seen, both moving towards the city of PARINTINS at great speed. There were assumptions by the Corveta service personnel that it was an airplane or a helicopter, however the time was not right and, in addition, the devices did not make any noise. The figures [see file ARX.0.0.212] show exactly how it happened. Complementary Data: “The figures [see file ARX.0.0.212] indicate the unidentified luminous objects seen by the Corveta “Mearim”. Such objects had shapes of yellow headlights that were on the water surface, between Vila Amazônia and Parintins”
