Brazilian 1977 UFO Case.

39 posts in this topic

A quite credible incident reported by the Brazilian Air Force in which over 80 people reported seing UFOs hovering over their village-some people being hit and paralysed by beams of light emanating from the objects :o .

Quote:

""During the months of September through December 1977, the Brazillian Air-Force under the command of a Captain Uyrangê Hollanda, was sent to the island of Colares to investigate a series of incidents in which over 80 people reported being attacked by beams of light from UFO's, paralyzing two of them and leaving puncture and burn marks on their skin. The investigation was codenamed "Operation Saucer". This operation collated over 15 hours of film, 500 photos, and hundreds of documents with detailed drawings and interviews with over 3000 witness'. The files were to remain classified by the Brazillian Government until 1997, when UFO investigator's A J Gevaerd and Marco Petite of UFO Magazine were allowed partial access. They were also contacted by the then retired Cpt Hollanda who gave them a vivid recollection of the whole series of events.""

Hey Karl 12. :st Thanks for posting, I saw that episode about two months ago. I believe they were seeing something, but what, I do not know. Even the nurse who would treat these people did not believe they were UFO caused rashes, but then she swears she encountered one of these strange lights one night. Pretty weird. :alien:

Check out the work of Bob Pratt, UFO Danger Zone in Brazil. He does excellent work in his case study of Brazillian UFO activity. Very disturbing stuff

Testimony of submerging UFOS in Colares:

Sometimes the UFOs go into the water. I've seen blue lights moving around under the water, and I've seen them come out. It just goes up and away in a northern direction, up and down in a wavy motion toward the ocean.

We saw Rósio again in 1999 and he said: “It began with lights all over Colares… sometimes in the shape of a hat, round, discs, like an umbrella… They seemed to come from way high up from many places, one from the sky, one from the bay…. They put out a strong light, too bright to see a shape. The light was blinding. One time we saw three or four objects come together into one big one.. They seemed to come from different directions and then joined together. Many times we could see them going across the island toward Belém. They didn’t make any noise. Very silent.

“One time we saw many UFOs coming out of the water at the same time, one, two, three, four… Many lights came out of the water. Huge objects went into the water, came down and went into the water.

Symptoms

By November 1977 doctor Wellaide Cecim Carvalho,the physician in charge of the health unit on Colares Island, took care of to some 35 people claiming to have been touched by the strange light. She took blood samples, and concluded that the victims suffered from generalized hypertermia, superficial chronic headache, burnings, intense heat, nauseas, tremors in the body, giddiness, asthenia and presented very small orifices in the skin where they were hit by the rays.

She wrote: "All of them had suffered lesions to the face or the thoracic area." The lesions, looking like radiation injuries, "began with intense reddening of the skin in the affected area. Later the hair would fall out and the skin would turn black. There was no pain, only a slight warmth. One also noticed small puncture marks in the skin. The victims were men and women of varying ages, without any pattern."

I do recall the extremely freaky UFO files episode on this; the people claiming they felt their blood being sucked by the beams of light. One man if I recall claimed to see grays in his room. Some woman had a heart attack or something, well some crippling medical incident, I don't recall. She was in a coma I think

Theory for the blood-sucking lights was terrorists/guerrilla rebels in the jungle shooting guns/darts with flashlights coupled with mass hysteria...yeah, don't buy it.

Further testimony from Colares involving UFOs and USOs.

Fishermen:

A Colares fishermen also saw UFOs coming in and out from the waters of the Marajó bay. Sometimes, they could see their bluish light moving under the water. “Once, I was sleeping when the sergeants - members of the operation - told me they took a photograph of a flying saucer diving into the water close to a boat. I went to the beach and waited for the fisherman. When he came back he told me what happened. He was terrified. Several weeks later I saw a light close to a fishing-boat. It was blue and surrounded the boat once or twice, by 300 meters, then it dived into the water. There wasn't any sound. It was like a blade passing through the water”, said the captain.

Priest witnessed object appearing:

The priest Alfredo de La Ó, responsible for the Colares church at that time and already dead, was also heard by the military. One of his stories: one night when he was driving he saw a bright object cone-shaped far away. It was at 100 meters of altitude more or less and coming down. it seemed it was landing. “I stopped and came out of the car to see it better. It's lights were green, red and yellow and turned on and off clockwise. It was swaying but, suddenly, the lights became stronger and it went up. It disappeared and did not land”, said the priest.

At two o'clock in the morning of November 27th, 1977, the Air Force agents were paying attention to three bright objects, with different sizes, on a place called Ponta do Machadinho. Apparently they were landed at a distance of 3.000 meters from them. Suddenly, the smaller object came closer to the bigger one. Few seconds later, it flew northeast, towards Belém. The other two stayed for some seconds more and then rised up fast, disappearing while taking different ways.

Another five bright objects could be seen in November 28th at 5000 meters, over the city of Colares. After some time, they came closer to a bigger one. They had yellow, red and green lights. One object left the others and started to emit a strong blue light against a place called Ponta do Bacuri. Later, they came together again and left towards Baía do Sol, Mosqueiro, at high speed. A fisherman, terrified, reported to the military the sighting of a dark UFO reflecting a bluish light. He was then interviewed by a crew of the Brazilian UFO Magazine [www.ufo.com.br].

Karl, you are a great asset!! thumbsup.gif

I find that South and Central America are historical hotspots. The area off Puerto Rico and up to the Bermuda area, are intriquing areas as well.

SkyEagle, thanks for the kind words and I completely agree about Central and South America having a long history of unexplained UFO incidents - they take a while to go through but if you've not seen them before some of Brazil's MOD UFO reports can be found at the link below:

BRAZIL UFO DISCLOSURE REPORTS AND PHOTOS ARE NOW AVAILABLE TO VIEW

Contents of 12 folders disclosed by the Brazilian Ministry of Defense confirm activities of unidentified flying objects in Brazilian territory. Moreover, it shows that Brazilian military authorities have always monitored such activities of other species in the country's environment.

Cheers.

In 1977 the Brazilian island of Colares and the area of the Amazon delta were visited by flying objects of an unknown nature. Nearly all kinds of UFOs were seen, some big, some small, saucer-shaped, cigar-shaped, barrel-shaped, luminous or not. They arrived generally from the North every day, from the sky and also sometimes from underwater, and it lasted for months.

Regularly, some Island inhabitants were targeted by the objects beaming strange lights at them and many were badly hurt. The Air Force came, investigated, saw, reported. The weird rays hurt 35 people, and civilians fled from entire villages.

Very interesting case Karl, I wonder how I had never heard of it. I think those people weren't lying, as there's too much detail and everyone tells the similar stories, not to mention that people were sent to the hospital because of light beams hitting them. Could it be some sort of natural phenomenon?

Hey Lcvec, thanks for the reply - you make some very good points and although I'm at a complete loss to explain what kind of natural phenomenon could have caused all the reported aspects of the case, here's a very interesting interview with Colonel Hollanda who was the main man in charge of 'Operation Saucer':

Fascinating documentary Karl!...And it would be perfect if Colonel Hollander could have provided evidence in the form of copies of the photographs and films that he claims were sent to Brazilia.

Of course, I could well be wrong , but as it is,...Though I am very intrigued by the whole story and the mans interview...

The Colonel did'nt convince me of his sincerity quite enough for me to accept his claims without further proof.

Cheers Buddy.
