Transcription of UFO occurrence at TWR-FL [Airport Control Tower of Florianópolis-SC] on DEC 16th,1981.
“At 00:35Z I received a call from a friend asking for information if there was a helicopter over the city, [and] I informed him that negative, since the last plane had taken off for SBPA [Porto Alegre Airport- RS] more than an hour ago. The same told me he was seeing an unidentified flying object, a UFO, which was moving from the vicinity of Clube Penhasco to the south, towards Morro do Cambirela.
At the time of the information, I asked the 3S D. who was on duty to turn off the internal lights of the TWR and the civilian P. of Infraero to turn off the lights of the Patio lighting poles to have a good visibility and we confirmed that there really was a UFO “parked” at about 800 mts of altitude; the light was of a high-intensity silvery yellow color; using the binocular I found that it really was of high intensity and could not be confused with “stars” as it moved slowly in the SW direction, without any noise from conventional engines.
I called the Day Officer Ten B. who was at the Base on duty in his office to have a look and he confirmed that he was seeing was not a “star”. The UFO remained there for about 7 minutes and then disappeared behind the Cambirela hill. We were in expectation but it didn’t show up anymore./ M.A. -1S Q AT CTA / Service Operator. “
