(ORDO NEWS) — “My name is Antonio Villas-Boas, I am 23 years old, I am a farmer and I live on a farm with my family. It is located near the city of Sao Francisco de Salis in the state of Minas Gerais, near the border of the state of Sao Paulo in Brazil. We plow the land with a tractor, and if I have to work at night, I usually drive myself.”
Thus begins the fantastic story told by the Brazilian Antonio Villas-Boas about his incredible encounter with aliens in a conversation with doctor Olavo Fontes and journalist Joao Martins. The interview took place in Rio de Janeiro on February 22, 1958, six months after the incident.
“It all started on the night of October 5, 1957. That evening we had guests, and therefore we went to bed only at 11 pm, much later than usual. My brother Joao was with me in the room.
Due to the heat, I opened the shutters and at that moment I saw a blinding light in the center of the courtyard, illuminating everything around. It was much brighter than moonlight, and I could not explain to myself its origin. The light came from somewhere above, as if from downlights. But there was nothing in the sky.
I called my brother and showed him all this, but nothing could move him, and he said that it was better to go to bed.
Then I closed the shutters and we both lay down. However, I could not calm down in any way and, overcome by curiosity, soon got up again and opened the shutters. Everything was still. As I continued to watch, I suddenly noticed that a spot of light was approaching my window.
Out of fear, I slammed the shutters and woke my brother. We watched through a gap in the shutters as a spot of light moved towards the roof. Finally, the light went out and did not appear again.
On October 14, the second incident occurred. It was probably between 21:30 and 22 hours. I don’t know for sure since I didn’t have a watch.
I worked on a tractor with another brother. Suddenly we saw a source of light so bright that it hurt our eyes. The light came from a huge and round object that looked like a car wheel. The color of the UFO was bright red, it illuminated a large area.
I invited my brother to go and see what it was, but he didn’t want to. Then I went alone. As I approached the UFO, it suddenly began to move and rolled at incredible speed towards the south side of the field, where it froze again.
I ran after him, but the same thing happened again. Now he has returned to his original place. I made at least twenty attempts to approach him, but without success. I was offended, and I returned to my brother.
For several minutes the luminous wheel in the distance remained motionless. From time to time it seemed to emit rays in different directions.
Then suddenly everything disappeared, as if the lights had been turned off. I’m not entirely sure if this was the case because I don’t remember ever looking at a light source. Maybe I turned my head away for a moment, and then he quickly got up and flew away.
“On October 15, I plowed the same field alone. It was a cold night, the sky was clear and full of stars. Exactly at one in the morning I saw a red star that looked the same as the big bright stars. But I immediately noticed that it was not a star at all, as it was growing in size and seemed to be approaching.
In a matter of moments, it turned into a glowing UFO – an egg-shaped object that rushed at me so fast that it was over the tractor before I had a chance to think what to do.
Suddenly the UFO stopped about 50 meters above my head. The tractor and the field were lit as brightly as on a sunny afternoon.
The headlights of the tractor were completely engulfed in a bright light red glow. I was terribly scared because I had no idea what it could be. First, I started the tractor and wanted to get out of there, but its speed was too low compared to the speed of the luminous object.
Jumping off a tractor and running across a plowed field is, at best, breaking a leg. While I hesitated in making a decision, the UFO moved slightly and again stopped about 10-15 meters from the tractor.
Then he slowly sank to the ground. The UFO moved closer and closer. Finally, I was able to make out that it was an unusual, almost round apparatus with small red holes. A huge red spotlight shone in my face, blinding me as the object descended.”
“Now I could see the shape of the car very well. The UFO looked like an elongated egg with three spikes in front. Their color could not be determined as they were sunk in red light. At the top, something that was also glowing red was spinning very fast.
This color changed as the number of revolutions of the rotating part decreased – at least that’s how it seemed to me.
The rotating part gave the impression of a saucer or a flat dome. Whether it really looked like that, or just the rotation gave that impression, I don’t know. After all, after the object landed, its movement did not stop.
Of course, I noticed the main details later, because at first I was too excited. I lost my last vestiges of self-control when three tripod-like metal tubes emerged from the bottom of the object a few meters from the ground.
These were metal legs, on which, of course, the entire weight of the car fell upon landing. I didn’t want to wait any longer.
The tractor was standing with the engine running all this time. I gave gas, turned in the opposite direction from the object and made an attempt to escape. But after a couple of meters, the engine stalled, and the headlights went out.
I could not understand the reason for this, since the ignition was on and the headlights were working properly. The engine did not start. Then I jumped out of the tractor and started running. But it was already too late, because after a few steps someone grabbed my arm.
It was a small, strangely dressed creature that reached out to my shoulder. In utter desperation, I turned to him and delivered a blow that knocked him off balance. The stranger released me and fell on his face. I tried to run again, but was immediately grabbed by three equally incomprehensible creatures.
They picked me up from the ground, holding my arms and legs tightly. I tried to push myself away, but in vain. Then I loudly called for help, cursing them and demanding that they let me go.
My scream aroused some surprise or curiosity in them, because on the way to the car they stopped every time I opened my mouth and stared at my face, but did not loosen their grip. They dragged me to the UFO, which was about ten meters above the ground on the already described metal legs.
At the back of the car was a door that descended from the top and became like a platform. At the end of it was a metal staircase. It was made of the same silvery material as the walls of the car, and reached to the ground.
“It was very difficult for these creatures to drag me there, as there were only two people on the stairs. In addition, this ladder was movable, resilient and swayed back and forth from my jerks. There were twisted railings on either side of the stairs, and I clung to them with all my might to keep me from being dragged further up.
So they had to constantly stop and take my hands off the railing. The railing was also resilient, and later, when I was released, I got the impression that they consisted of separate links inserted into each other.
Finally they managed to get me into a small square room. The shimmering light from the metal ceiling reflected off the polished metal walls. It came from several four-sided light bulbs located near the ceiling. They put me on the floor. The front door, along with the stairs, rose and slammed shut, completely merging with the wall.
One of the five beings gestured for me to follow him. I obeyed because I had no choice. Together we entered another semi-oval room, which was larger than the previous one.
The walls are just as shiny. I believe that this was the central part of the UFO, because in the middle of the room towered what seemed to be a massive column, tapering in its middle segment. It’s hard to imagine that she was there just for decoration. I think she supported the ceiling.
There were many swivel chairs in the room, similar to the ones we have in bars. Thus, everyone sitting on a chair had the opportunity to turn in different directions.
The aliens held me tight all the time and seemed to be talking about me. When I say “spoke” it does not mean even in the slightest degree that I heard anything like human sounds. I cannot repeat them. Suddenly it seemed that they had made a decision. All five began to undress me. I defended myself, shouted and cursed.
They stopped for a moment, looked at me, as if letting me know that they are polite people. But that didn’t stop them from stripping me naked. However, they did not hurt me and did not tear my clothes. As a result, I was naked and scared to death, because I did not know what they were going to do with me next.
One of them approached me, holding what looked like a wet washcloth in his hand, and began to rub the liquid on my body.
The liquid was clear and odorless. At first I thought it was some kind of oil, but the skin did not become greasy or oily. I was cold and shivering all over as the night was quite chilly and the liquid made the cold even worse. However, the liquid dried up very quickly.”
“Then three of these beings led me to a door opposite the one through which I had entered. One of them touched something in the middle of the door, and then both halves of it opened. There was an incomprehensible inscription of red luminous signs. They had nothing to do with any written characters known to me.
Accompanied by two newcomers, I entered a small room that was lit in the same way as the others. As soon as we got there, the door closed behind us. When I turned around, it was impossible to see any opening. Only the wall was visible, no different from the others.
“Suddenly, this wall opened again, and two more aliens entered through the door. In their hands were rather thick red rubber hoses, each one more than a meter long. One of these hoses was attached to a goblet-shaped glass vessel, and at the other end was a nozzle that looked like a glass tube.
They applied it to the skin on my chin, right here, where the dark spot from the scar is still visible. At first I didn’t feel any pain or itching. Then this place began to burn and itch. I saw that the mug was slowly filling halfway with my blood.
Then they stopped their work, removed one nozzle, replaced it with another and took blood from the other side of the chin. There, too, was the same dark spot. This time the mug was filled to the brim.
Then they left, the door closed behind them, and I was left alone. A lot of time passed, probably at least half an hour, but no one remembered me. There was nothing in the room but a large cot in the middle. The couch was quite soft, like styrofoam, and covered with a thick, soft gray cloth.
Since I was very tired after all the excitement, I sat down on this couch. At that moment, I smelled an unusual smell, which made me feel bad. I felt like I was breathing in heavy smoke that threatened to suffocate me.”
“On examining the walls, I noticed several small metal tubes, closed at the bottom, protruding at the height of my head and having, like a shower, many small holes. Gray smoke oozed from these holes, which dissolved into the air and emitted an unpleasant odor. I felt unbearably ill, I rushed to the corner of the room and vomited.
After that, my breath became free, but the smell of smoke still bothered me. I was extremely depressed. What else has fate prepared for me? Until now, I had no idea what these creatures actually look like. They were all equally dressed in white skin-tight “metal scale” suits.
Each of them also wore a wide belt with a reddish glowing circle in front. On their heads were large, opaque helmets with small cutouts at eye level, which were covered with goggle-like glasses.
The five-fingered hands were enclosed in thick monochrome gloves, which, of course, interfered with movements, but this did not prevent them from holding me tightly and skillfully manipulating the rubber hose, drawing blood from me.
At the back, from a small bulge on the back, two straight metal tubes came out, which stretched upwards, connecting with the helmet on both sides.
“After a while, a rustling outside the door distracted me from my thoughts. I looked around the room and saw a woman slowly approaching me. She was completely naked, as was I. I was speechless, and the woman seemed to be amused by my expression.
She was very beautiful, but not at all as beautiful as the women I have met. Her hair, soft and blond, even very blond, as if bleached, was parted down the middle.
She had large, almond-shaped blue eyes. The nose was straight. Unusually high cheekbones gave the face a peculiar shape. It was much wider than that of the Indian women of South America. A sharp chin gave the face a triangular shape.
She had thin, slightly protruding lips, and her ears, which I saw only later, were exactly the same as those of our women. The woman’s body was amazingly beautiful: wide hips, long legs, small feet, narrow wrists and normal nails.
She was much smaller than me. The woman silently approached me and looked at me. Suddenly she hugged me and began to rub her face against mine. Alone with this woman, I was very excited. It may sound far-fetched, but I believe the reason for this was the liquid they rubbed on me.
Perhaps they did it on purpose. At the same time, I would not trade any of our women for her, as I prefer women who I can talk to and who understand me. She made only grunting sounds, which completely discouraged me. I was terribly angry.”
As far as can be inferred from the clinical examination and medical examination, young Boas, after the exciting event that happened to him, returned home completely exhausted and slept most of the day after that. When he woke up at 4:30 pm, he felt good and ate a good meal.
But in the next and subsequent nights, insomnia began to torment him. He was nervous and very agitated, and when he managed to fall asleep, he was immediately overwhelmed by dreams related to the events of that night. Then he woke up in a fright, screamed, and again it seemed to him that he was captured by aliens and held captive.
Having experienced this sensation several times, he abandoned his futile attempts to calm down and decided to spend the night reading, but he could not concentrate on what he had read and kept mentally returning to the experience.
Day after day, he felt completely out of his mind, running back and forth and smoking cigarette after cigarette. When he was hungry, he could only drink a cup of coffee, after which he became ill, and the state of nausea, as well as headache, continued all day.
Dr. Fontes did not draw any conclusions regarding the numerous abrasions and other injuries on the chin, palms, legs and armpits.
On the other hand, he confirmed the complete absence of direct or indirect signs of mental illness in the patient.
Antonio Vilas Boas was not prone to psychopathy, as well as superstition and mysticism. He took the members of the UFO team not for angels or demons, but for people from another planet.
When the journalist Martins explained to the young man that many, having heard his story, would consider him either crazy or a fraud, Antonio Villas-Boas objected:
“Let those who consider me such, come to my house and examine me. This would help them immediately determine whether I can be considered normal or not.
Maybe the young man suffered from an inferiority complex, or was he generally an inferior person?
Dr. Fontes completely denies this in his expertise.
Are the fantastic adventures of Antonio Villas-Boas a figment of the imagination?
As Johannes von Butlar writes in The UFO Phenomenon, surgeon Walter C. Buhler, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, said in a telephone conversation on May 24, 1978:
“I don’t have the slightest doubt that this actually happened.”
He referred to the then-unpublished fact of “a very thorough examination of Boas by Dr. Fontes using a special device – a Geiger counter, in which “radioactive contamination was found on his body and clothes.”
Dr. Buhler, along with other doctors, also came to the conclusion that only radiation could have caused the painful symptoms described above in Antonio Villas Boas.
