Go Back Report # 591


by Joe and Doris Graziano

BRAZIL, November (?), 1980-Macapa...Seventy or more people, awaiting the re-establishment of ferry service across the Aragari River, watched a strange object rise up from the river, hover at 5 to 6 meters above it and 100 meters from the river bank, rise slowly to a height of 200 meters and stop there for 4 minutes. It then turned left and proceeded at a moderate speed towards the ocean.

Witnesses said the object appeared solid, about 5 meters in diameter, was shaped like a cloud and showed no sign of luminosity.

On the opposite bank of the river at Amapa, Francisco Silveira said the object came within 30 meters of him. It stayed there for a long while "as if it was watching me."

On the preceding day in Amapa, a car with 3 passengers was followed by a plate-shaped object with its borders lit up. It then-stopped still above a sports module facing a local hotel.
