Here's a video in a portuguese news show about some lights that appeared saturday in the sky of Abrantes City.

The young man filmed it in his veranda. It's said the lights appeared for several hours , disappearing and reappearing several times.
The man thought at first it could be a star, but as you can see the bottom of the lights is straight, cut.
The footage is going to be send to Portuguese Air Force for analysis.

PS: Sorry for bad English, I hope you can understand.

Interesting video, didnt really get a good shot of it unfocused to get a perspective on it. Which leads me me to this.. if you look at exactly 41 seconds into the video, there are plenty of flat rooftops to "cut" the light.

Like I said though, hard to tell without more perspective.

Would be interested in the translation of the video.

It's a sighting of 2004, don't know if already discussed here
(i searched for Abrantes, but i haven't found it).


On the third day of October, 2004 about 3:00 hours, an unknown object was filmed in Abrantes, Portugal, by brothers, Ricardo (19 years old) and Nuno Machado, (23 years old) along with Nuno's wife Sonia. The UFO, which appeared similar to a shining star that changes color, was filmed for ten minutes. An amateur camera was used with a 320X zoom.
Ironically, a friend of theirs in Spain saw the same thing, and he telephoned the brothers about his sighting. Also, additional witnesses from Abrantes, Montargil, and Zamora witnesses the unknown object, and reported their sightings to SIC television, and to the Correio da Manhã Journal. Sonia and Ricardo sent the video footage to the Portugese Air Force for analysis, and have hopes to send a copy to NASA.

A few days after examination of the details of the sighting, including film, the Air Force was not able to offer an explanation for the unknown object. Colonel Carlos Barbosa stated that nothing was picked up on radar, although the sighting had numerous eyewitnesses. Could the UFO had been invisible to Air Force radar?

Also, the internet site www.correiomanha.pt listed a number of other witnesses to the sighting.

Pedro in the A23 road in the Covilhã- Lisbon way, October 5, at 18:45 PM saw one strange object in the sky.

Sofia, in Manteigadas, saw the same phenomena, for several seconds in the sky.

Sergio Silva saw the same object in the Mountain range of the Lousã, in Campelo, 22:00 PM; a shining sphere that expanded in blue color, several seconds and then disappeared.

André observed the same object in the city of Barreiro; a strong light went down at great speed on the area of Estoril- Cascais- Sintra.

A big thanks to Sílvio Guerrinha, from Portugal, who put this whole thing together, and translated for me.

Oh wow, another blurry video of some fuzzy light moving against a night time background. Could be anything, and not even worth discussing.

This wasn't last saturday.

As you can see on the news-ticker on the bottom of the image, this was in the same year of the 1st Indie Lisbon Festival. That was in 2004.

Searching for "OVNI em Abrantes" on Google gave me, among others, this page, from the APOVNI, where they talk about the case.

It was October 3, 2004.


PS: are you Portuguese, casu10?

My translation:

News guy - They guarantee that they saw a unidentified flying object and that they filmed what they saw.

Witness - I looked at the sky and saw something shining in a very strange way. Then I looked at it , I stopped and seemed to be a star and I did not gave it much attention. Then I picked up the camera and I started to make zoom and I noticed that it really wasn't a star, at least it did not looked to be a star, and I started to record. After recording it made me confused to that to be there.

Voice over - The images were collected of this veranda during the Saturday dawn. It was close to 3 AM and one unidentified object was shining in the skies of Abrantes.

Witness - There is the object that it is stopped in the sky, it shines with the red, green, blue colours, has a very strange behaviour to be a star and I think that it has to be properly analyzed to know what it.

Witness' sister - It is a strange very strange object, without explanation, is as my brother says, it can be a star or not, satellite, planet, who knows a UFO, I don't know. Some strange thing.

Voice over - The light was hanging in air during some hours, appeared and disappeared some times, in an explosion that formed a strange ball of colours.

Witness' sister - On the bottom, as we can see, it is cut, one notices there that he is strange, a circumference to be perfect has to be perfect all around, and the bottom is completely cut.

Voice over - In the area there are no other strange occurrences reported , the images are to be deliver to the Air Force to try to determine if the phenomenon is really a UFO.
