Operation Prato was conduted by the Brazilian Millitary from Aug. 1977-Dec. 1977 to investigate the strange occurances near Colares,Brazil.
Colares is located near the mouth of the Amazon. In 1977 some strange things were happening all over the area, not only in Colares. The local
population was in a state of near panic, and the Millitary began to investigate. By the time the flap was finally over, the aftermath of the events
would become a very well documented and strange case in UFology.
The descriptions of the sightings and the details of the bizzare burns and blood taking are truly strange!(Pics in links)
Stange events terrify locals near the mouth of the Amazon.

controlled by two elements of human appearance, the "homme" occupying the left side and the woman being with the right-hand side of the
"appareil", both bearing of the glasses (of different format) and an intercom equipment; the element with the right-hand side raised them but to the

He goes on to state that the UFO's were aware of their presence(Operation Prato) and they were at times followed by the UFO's.
Wellaide Cecim, a physician working in the 70s at a health care unit in Village of Colares, Pará, Brazil, admits she was forced by military to lie
about how serious the "suck-suck phenomena" was.
Question — Under all this pressure from the military, what did you do?
Wellaide — I refused to do this. I always told them I wouldn't obey. I disagree to them when they say I was afraid of being considered a
fool. I really don't mind. I gave interviews to several TVs from Brazil, EUA and Europe, even under the risk of being fired. Besides being a skeptic,
I'm totally sure of what I saw. I don't know what it is, but I know its real.
Question — Did you, as did the captain Uyrangê Hollanda, the investigation commander, see beings from space?
Wellaide — Yes I did. It was 5 pm in the afternoon at Colares. There was a ship at 50 meters of altitude, above the city’s main street.
Inside of this ship there was a being, 1.20 or 1.30 meter high. This happened when I was driving to help a child with broken clavicle, I was going to
immobilize her. They were flying so low that I was completely unable to react. I could see the UFOs bright metal and it wasn't a dish-like object,
but much more like a cone or a cylinder. Its course was elliptical. 5 o'clock in the afternoon your eyes can't play tricks on you. You may have
visions, hallucinate, but, like me, many others would have to.
This case is also of interest as the Brazilian Millitary is releasing newly de-classified documents and info as of 5/20/05.
