March 23 1978
67-year old Joao Inacio
Ribeiro was walking along the oceanfront when he saw a circular object about
10 meters in diameter approach from the sea. It had brilliant blue, yellow, green,
and lilac colored lights. On its upper section it had a sort of cabin or
cupola with 3 circular windows. The craft approached, stopped, and hovered above the waters,
causing the area directly below the object to become agitated and choppy.
Ribeiro then saw two short humanoids appear on top of the craft. The figures
were about 1 meter in height, and wore gray colored tight fitting outfits.
The beings were baldheaded, with small noses and mouths and huge black eyes.
One carried something resembling a walking cane; the other had what appeared
to be a vacuum cleaner like object. Both beings then began operating the
vacuum like object seemingly
extracting water from the ocean. After 10 minutes they re-entered the
object. Moments later
the object descended to 10 meters above the waters causing them to become
even more turbulent, creating large waves and foam. Afraid Ribeiro ran home.
