in the light
Case One: Late one Saturday night in January, 1980, a
Brazilian electronics businessman and nine other people saw a disc-shaped object shine
a light down on the water near the eastern shore of the Tapajos river
in the Amazon. The man, his family and some relatives, were camping at a
beach thirty miles south of Santarem,
and appeared around eleven o'clock.
teenagers were still awake, lying in hammocks and talking, when they saw the
UFO come toward them from across the river. It stopped about thirty yards from the beach and shined a
light down on the water twenty yards below. The kids awakened the
others. The UFO hovered briefly and then began moving north, or to the
campers’ right, parallel to the shore. It traveled more than half a mile,
with the spotlight still shining straight down, before it disappeared.
The curious thing about all this was that as the beam
of light moved along the river, it left behind a trail of luminescence on the
surface for several hundred yards. The trail gradually faded out,
south to north, at about the same speed as the light
itself had moved.
