MAY 19,1986……..SAO PAULO BRAZIL
Fighter jets chased mysterious bright objects – some of them 300 ft wide and traveling at 11,500 mph – in Brazil’s epic ‘Night of the UFOs’.
Five bewildered pilots testified to seeing 21 objects appear and disappear, while hundreds of troops on the ground also witnessed them – and air force chiefs admitted: “there is no explanation.”
What happened is set to form a part of a hearing taking place in the Brazilian Senate into UFOs this week.
The event comes after Congress held a hearing response to footage taken from US Navy fighter planes showing mysterious, unexplained objects darting in the sky – the now famous ‘Tic-Tac’ video.
But the story of what unfolded on a night in Brazil a decade before those videos were taken is every bit as mind boggling.
Over several hours, hundreds of witnesses, including the elite of the country’s military, saw strange objects that seemed to move at a terrifying speed.
Pilots found themselves looking at objects in front of them that didn’t appear on their aircraft radars – and sometimes the other way around – as the objects played “cat and mouse” with them.
The first signs of anything unusual were reported by Brazilian air force air traffic controller, Sergeant Sergio Mota da Silva, on the evening of May 19, 1986.
He spotted a light in the sky from the control tower of an airport near the city of Sao Paulo.
“It doesn’t go up or down, it doesn’t go to the left or to the right, it’s just standing there”, he said
Mota asked controllers at Sao Paulo’s international airport if any planes were heading to his airfield, to which they replied there weren’t.
At one point he said he dimmed the lights on the airport’s runway, making the objects come towards the control tower and then, when he turned up the brightness, they moved away.

“Whether they were trying to interact with me, I don’t know. What I do know is that they behaved intelligently,” he told the BBC.
Around 8 pm around 2000 cadets and officers from an air force training school in the same area, reported spotting the lights.
Then an hour later, a plane piloted by the president of aircraft maker Embraer reported several objects in the sky as it landed at the same airport.
The lights in the sky were also seen from two passenger planes, including one traveling in the interior of Brazil. NOTE: The above image real but from another case file.
