(ORDO NEWS) — The 1986 UFO incident over Brazil will be presented at a UFO hearing in the Brazilian Senate.
A series of UFO sightings dubbed “UFO Night” was made public this week ahead of a Brazilian Senate hearing on the UFO phenomenon.
It all started on the evening of May 19, 1986, when Brazilian Air Force air traffic controller Sergeant Sergio Mota da Silva saw a light in the sky from the control tower of an airport near São Paulo.
“It didn’t go up and down, it didn’t move left or right, it just stood there,” he said.
He added that it was not a plane and the UFO seemed to be behaving “intelligently”.
Then that same night, around 8 p.m., about 2,000 cadets and officers of the Air Force Training School witnessed mysterious lights in the sky in the same area.
An hour later, the plane’s pilot reported multiple lights while landing at the same airport. Two passenger planes in the area also reported seeing the same phenomenon.
These reports of a potential intrusion into Brazilian airspace were taken so seriously that planes were scrambled to intercept the objects, but the pilots had trouble detecting them.
“Sometimes the pilots had visual contact with objects, but the radars did not register anything. In other cases, the radars even recorded the presence of objects, but the pilots could not see them.”
When one of the jet pilots tried to approach the target, the object suddenly accelerated and began to move away from it at a speed exceeding the speed of sound by about 15 times.
As a result, the pilot lost contact with the object at an altitude of about 9 km.
Until now, no explanation has been found for the objects observed that night.
