Hello ATS, here is another interesting case which has little information in here. I will be translating it all from a Spanish source that will be
at the end as always.
The Sagrada Familia Case
This case occurred on August 28, 1963, in the neighborhood Sagrada Familia, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, the case was investigated by the
Brazilian UFO group CICOANI.
The three boys, Fernando, Ronaldo and José Marcos went to their backyard after dinner to clean the coffee strainer in a water tank (it was previously
a metal barrel of gasoline), next to the tank, José, the youngest of them, seven years old at the time, went quickly to the water tank, lowered his
head and arms inside the barrel to collect the water with a bottle in his hand.
- The three boys.
Then Ronaldo came and suddenly noticed a strange glow in their backyard. Looking up to see what might be causing this unusual clarity, he saw a
spherical UFO. The UFO was lit internally and its walls were transparent. The UFO was stationary and floating on an avocado tree. The distance to the
boys was about 8 meters. Its size was estimated at around 3 meters in diameter. At the top of the UFO was a sort of an antenna with two branches bent
in the form of a V. Each being had a ball at the top of their heads. In the middle of the UFO there was other smaller vertical antenna.
Because of its transparency, the four beings were visible, four beings that were absolutely like us, except for a curious detail, instead of having
two eyes, they had one eye in the middle of the forehead, like a cyclop. At least one of them was a woman, because unlike the other three who had no
hair, this being had long blond hair. All the beings were sitting on stools. In front of the front seat there was a console that appeared to be the
control panel of the UFO.
- The four beings and the UFO.
A few seconds later, the UFO shot down two beams of light, forming two columns of light. Between these two light beams a being descended from the UFO,
slowly floating down. The being started walking toward the water tank where José stood his head inside the barrel to get water. Apparently, José was
not aware of what was happening. When the being was at a distance of about two meters from José, he extended his arm making it clear that his
intentions were at least to touch him. But Fernando thought the being wanted to kidnap or hurt José.
- The being descending from the UFO.
- The being.
Without hesitation, Fernando ran and jumped on José, knocking him to the ground and placing José behind him, the strange being instantly retired and
made a series of gestures to Fernando with his hands, which were accompanied by movements of his head. The being began to speak several completely
unintelligible words. Then the being sat on the edge of a pit that was in front of the UFO, which remained hovering low to the ground.
When this being turned his back, Fernando grabbed a brick from the floor and raised his arm to throw it to the being, but, immediately, the being got
up and shot out a yellow ray from a small rectangle that was in the chest area of ??his clothes and went to the hand that was holding the brick. The
brick fell to the ground and inexplicably the three boys were quiet and totally calm instead of running and screaming for help.
- Fernando holding a brick to throw it against the being.
- The yellow ray that stopped Fernando.
The being remained there in front of the three boys, talking endlessly in a totally incomprehensible language. And it was at this time that the boys
could see well the creature. It was more than two meters in height and had one big eye in the middle of the forehead. His eye was dark, without sclera
and placed on the base of the nose. On the eye there was a stain that looked like his eyebrow. His face was completely red. It was possible to see
some teeth when the being opened his mouth to speak.
- Description of the being.
He wore a transparent helmet where his face was clearly visible. The clothes that the being was using were brown to the waist, white to the knees and
the boots were black. His clothes appeared to be made of leather or something similar and had several wrinkles. The boys said the being had some kind
of box of a color similar to copper placed on his back.
A little later, the being nodded slowly raising his hand and pointed to the moon, as if indicating that he was about to take a trip to our natural
satellite. Shortly after the being walked toward the UFO. When José saw that he walked away, he asked, "Will you come back?"
the being turned around and gestured shaking his head up and down, as if responding to what the boy had asked. Then right away, he turned around again
and continued walking toward the UFO. But before he got to the UFO, the being bent down and picked a plant from the ground with his left hand.
When the being finally reached the exact spot to where he descended from the UFO, he waved his hand and then the yellow light beams columns appeared
again and then he started floating slowly up toward the UFO. Once inside the UFO, the being sat down with the others. Finally the UFO issued a glow
and flew silently toward the east, fading and then disappearing.
- The UFO disappearing from the boys sight.
Only after the UFO disappeared the boys ran into their house screaming and calling their mother. Maria José was scared by the appearance of their
terrified children and sent her daughter to a nearby bar to get her husband, Alcides Gualberto. He came immediately to see what had happened, Alcides
Gualberto found that there were small triangle-shaped markings on the floor of the backyard just like their children told them. The children were very
frightened and refused to return to their backyard for several days.
- Fernando points at the proximate height of the being.
