Residents of the town of Campo Maior in the Alentejo region of Portugal have reported seeing a low flying UFO that at one stage hovered just above a resident’s garden. At 7.30pm on February the 17th an elderly woman was in her backyard when she saw a glowing object illuminate the entire area. The woman was alone but her daughter who lived nearby also saw the otherworldly object.

In Brazil they speak portuguese, so it's natural that some regions have the same name, or are named after regions in Portugal.
Campo Maior is a region in Alentejo (who, at my knowledge, the name isn't used in any other luso country). Alentejo is in the south of Portugal.
But again, this things usually come up in other news agencies, which in this case, didn't happen.
I also searched in APNO (portuguese association of ufology), and they also don't have any record of this sighting.
I find it a little weird that our own social communication doesn't know something that a foreign news agency knows. But, I don't know...maybe I'm missing something.
Still searching for info... If I find it, I'll translate it and post it here.

Campo Maior is an ancient Roman site: continuing the trend of UFO sightings in areas of some historical significance.
