Go Back Report # 1297

12-06-1978

1978 - A security guard at the local hydroelectric plant in Marimbonda [sic – Marimbondo] near Fronteira, Brazil was at his guardhouse on top of the dam at 10:30 p.m. when he noticed some lights shining down on the water surface. He went out to investigate and noticed a luminous, circular object approach from across the river. The object came closer and began to hover close to the ground near the power station. The guard could see a door and a small window on the UFO. The window opened and a human face looked out at the witness. The craft's door then opened and three tall men came out. These men wore shiny metallic blue coveralls and all had very long, smooth black hair. The beings approached the guard and spoke to him in an unintelligible language. He panicked and tried to fire a warning shot into the air with his revolver, but it jammed. One of the men then went inside the UFO and came back out holding a black box and handed it to one of the others. After that the witness was able to understand the beings and was told they were here on a "research and study mission." At one point one of the men started collecting stones from the ground and the witness protested. The men then put away the box and calmly walked back into their craft, which left silently and at high speed.
