2005 - Brazil: Three Photographs Taken of Unknown Object
Published: 10:50 AM 2/27/2012

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - 07-22-05

I was observing the sky with my sister and my father on the roof of my grandmother's house in Vargem Grande, and we saw a red-orange light in the sky.

We thought it was a common paper balloon at first. My sister placed the camera on a small wall, took pictures and a strange- shape appeared in the screen.

The object was slightly bigger than a star and it was slowly ascending. We felt excited about it; we thought we caught a picture of a UFO.

I can't remember exactly when it disappeared, and why we stopped taking pictures.

Earlier on that day I was going to the house by car and I saw for 2 seconds a "different" object in the sky moving forward with a cloud of smoke behind it.

Trees entered in my sight and for 5 seconds I couldn't see the object, and the when I could see the sky again, the object and the smoke was gone.

I thought possibly these 2 facts are related.

It's common to see paper balloons in the area. There's a story about abduction in a lake nearby and my grandfather told me stories about a fireball over the near mountains a long time ago.
