Go Back Report # 152


       The quantity of UFO and USO sightings off the Argentine coast suggests that the idea of a submarine UFO base in the South Atlantic may not be too crazy after all. There has also been some activity off the Brazilian coast further north. On 10 January 1958 an army captain was sitting in the porch of a house near Curitiba and examining an unfamiliar “island” through binoculars. The “island” turned out to be a strange object in two sections joined by vertical shafts or tubes. The whole thing sank as he and others watched; then fifteen minutes later, after a ship had passed by, it rose again, finally disappearing after a few more minutes.
