midnight one moonlit night in May, 1974, Manoel
Pacheco Juca, forty-seven, and a friend, Pedro, had
been fishing along the Atlantic coast two miles from his farm near Paraipaba, Ceará. They were
walking to another location when Manoel looked back
over his shoulder and saw something that hadn't been there minutes earlier.
yards away were three men standing near what looked like a jeep near the
water. Manoel and Pedro were frightened. They
ducked down and watched. The strangers were dressed in dark clothing and
apparently did not see them.
the three strangers hurried side by side into the ocean and just as quickly
returned to the jeep. They were wet and seemed to be measuring something with
a rope. They said nothing, and no sounds were heard. After about three
minutes, the three
climbed into the jeep and disappeared into the ocean, jeep and all.
