That's really a shame, specially knowing that the Brazilian Armed Forces have been involved in the conversion of their archives to digital versions that can be searched by anyone with Internet access.

I know this because I know that the Portuguese Army archives were doing the same thing at the same time (some 10 years ago) and they were talking to each other about the way of doing it.

PS: I know that the Portuguese Army was doing that because I work in the company that made the software they were using at the time.

Great thread OP


Just like with humanity - I believe that good and evil exists amongst ET's as well , thats why I cant accept Dr steven greer as anything other than a dis info merchant - all et's are our friends and here to help ? yeah sure they are , he comes across as taking himself far too seriously and his cathedral sized ego wont allow any room for niavety so he must be pushing someones agenda because like this case and many others around the world show - ET's are capable of inflicting great harm physically and psychologically .

Interesting about all those people hit by a beam. There's a story in Above Top Secret (or one of it's sequels) that Tomothy Good investigated. A young woman from England was hit by a beam from a ufo just as she was opening her front door after a night out. Wasn't that also 1977?


(I left my copy out in the rain to dissolve so can't check that myself.)

Interview with Colonel Ariel Sanchez from CRIDOVNI, the official Uruguay Air Force office for UFO research who mentions the Colares case:






I would like to know about your knowledge and the knowledge of your team on Brazilian cases, such
as Operação Prato, the Brazilian Official UFO Night and others.


Thanks to UFO Magazine we know a lot about those cases. The one I’m mostly interested is Operação
Prato, in 1977. This seems to me as a very shocking situation. Among all those intriguing cases such as the
Brazilian Official UFO Night, Varginha and others, I believe Operação Prato was the most important one in
its developments. It was significant because of the way the UFOs affected the population, the attacks and
even deaths caused by the “chupa-chupa”, four people dead if I’m not mistaken. I would like to have participated
in that investigation. I believe it would have been a pleasure to Coronel Uyrange Hollanda, commander
of Operação Prato, to have you participating in the investigations.


It would have been an honor and a pleasure to me because his work was really important. Was there
anything similar to Operação Prato in Uruguay? Was there any registered wave of UFOs attacking people?


No. There was never anything like the “chupa-chupa” or Operação Prato in my country. Actually, if we
check the 3% of cases we investigate, that means the 40 cases which we could not explain, we can conclude
that the phenomenon is not aggressive in Uruguay.
Isn’t there any case of UFO attacks against Uruguayan people?
Except for a couple of cases, we don’t have it. I remember one case in which a big ball appeared in
front of someone who was walking. The person described it as a little sun. The witness was very much
burned, as if he had stayed under the Sun for hours, as if he had slept at the beach. The skin was really
burned, darkened. This is one of the very few cases in which someone got hurt here..

sometimes i wonder if there is just one race that pretends to be lots of different ones, like the similarities between bob lazars the sports model and billy meire's beamships. unlikely but must be considered.

Just to add a note to this thread, the Brazilian UFO community has been pushing the government on the disclosure of a number of videos and documents and thus far, they have been successful. They are currently at phase 3 and are still pushing for the release of the videos of this incident (and others).

Yah, Colares. Too bad about Capt. Hollanda who was found dead/murdered. This one of those cases that has a lot of credibility in my opinion. Are aliens benign? Are lab rats victims? How about vegetables in a garden?

I think for the most part we are preconditioned by Hollywood to think that Ghosts and aliens are evil monsters. The big big cases of contact with unknowns like Colares, Rendleshem, Belgium, Shag Harbor, etc., don't live up to Hollywood's interpretation.

Brazilian Lieutenant Colonel Leo Tércio Sperb discusses another major UFO incident in 1977 on the Cuiabá-Cáceres road:




The full interview is being transcribed for complete publication on Brazilian UFO Magazine, and what can be now advanced is that the former Army military was involved in a major UFO incident in 1977, the very same year when Operation Prato occurred in the Amazon, a hot year for Brazilian Ufology. Lieutenant-Coronel Leo Tércio Sperb revealed that this new found incident took place when he held the highly important position as commander for the 2nd Frontier Battalion, in the city Cáceres, state of Mato Grosso, West of Brazil.

The former military commander reported that in mid 1977 (he was unable to remember the date precisely) he was informed by his men that a small settlement located somewhere in the middle of the Cuiabá-Cáceres Road was highly excited about sightings of a strange and recurring luminous object that appeared predominantly at night. Having always been opened to UFO issues, and seeing the reports were significant, he sent a first man to do the preliminary investigations.

great work, thanks for sharing.

Kandinsky, perhaps you already mentioned this, but after a FOIA request, Brazilian Air Defense Command (Comdabra)released more documentation related to OPERAÇÃO PRATO

(Roughly translated, hopefully ArMaP will take a look and correct possible mistakes)

OPERAÇÃO PRATO 1 – PART 1 –

Well Hooray for the Wayback machine!

There's some interesting speculation in the full article below about the light beams that emanated from the Colares objects and 'immobilised' the witnesses - don't know how right he is but Jacques Vallee suggests they contain several different types of electromagnetic radiation:



Brazil in South America seems to have an unusual number of UFO cases involving beams of light, some of which injure or even kill people. In a dramatic article in the British Flying Saucer Review entitled 'Extraterrestrial Vampires in the Amazon Region of Brazil: Part II', the magazine editor, Gordon Creighton, provides readers with a précis translation from the Portuguese of Chapter IV from the book of that name by Dr Daniel Rebisso Giese (1996). These events occurred on Colares Island, which is in the delta of the Amazon river on the north-eastern coast of Brazil. So many people reported being attacked by beams of light from small UFOs in this area that only a sample of them are reported here.


In describing their experiences with these light beams, most victims claimed that "They were immediately immobilised, as if a heavy weight pushed against their chest. The beam was about [seven or eight centimetres] in diameter and white in colour. It never hunted for them but hit them suddenly. When they tried to scream no sound would come out, but their eyes remained open. The beam felt hot, 'almost as hot as a cigarette burn', barely tolerable. After a few minutes the column of light would slowly retract and disappear." (Vallee, 1990, p.200) Apart from those who had been killed by these beams, most people's symptoms usually disappeared after seven days.

After asking various forensic pathologists to review his findings, Vallee claims that "what UFO witnesses describe as 'light' may, in fact, be a complex combination of ionising and non-ionising radiation. Many of the injuries described in Brazil, however, are consistent with the effects of high-power pulsed microwaves."

The descriptions in bold seem to resemble what some people describe during the beginning stages of the abduction experience. Could it be a similar technology?

I only just recently learned of this series of events in Brazil back in 1977 a couple weeks ago while watching some old UFO documentary on television. It's fascinating because something was obviously taking place in that village to prompt the mayor to call in the military to try and help study the situation and to try and help protect the people in the small fishing village. It's quite disturbing if one begins to tie in these events with the occurrence of human abduction and mutilation cases such as the Todd Sees case that took place back in 2002 in Northumberland, PA. There was also a human mutilation case that took place in Brazil as well.

While searching YouTube for further information on the 1977 Colares case, I came across a video that was apparently taken in 1991 in Colares Brazil of what appears to be people being hit with these "lights". I have no clue what it could be, however, it is definitely from a VHS copy, and that's what makes it more interesting than the usual YouTube garbage we see quite regularly around here that are often hoaxes. It's no wonder the human mutilation cases are "suppressed" and not as well known as other UFO cases that have taken place; Just the thought that such incidents might be taking place is enough to make any sane person mentally unstable...

To add, if there are any Portuguese speaking ATS members that could translate what is being said in the video I embedded in my previous post it would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers.

BTW, great thread Kandinsky, lots of excellent information about this event.

The voice closest to the camera (I suppose that's the man with the camera) doesn't say anything interesting, only some exclamations that should not be translated, if you know what I mean.

(Or at least it was what it sounded like to me, I may be wrong)

As for the video itself, it doesn't look like VHS, it looks only fuzzy, so it may have been made with a digital camera and changed to make it look older.

Edit:For some reason I hadn't seen the beginning of the video, that makes it look more like an old video but it's also easy to fake.

As for the good and bad aliens would the "space warden" project be the first defence.

Yeah, I was thinking it would be quite easy to hoax a "VHS tape simulation" as well but something just looks "right" about it (the fact that it appears to be a legit copy from a VHS source, not what the light is exactly or what they were saying or doing there) The legitimacy of modern UFO video's for myself has been destroyed as far as I am concerned. I can no longer trust anything that is made public and posted on the likes of YouTube as there's far to many asinine idiotic nerds with to much time on their hands creating video hoaxes these days. The sad part about it is that the hoaxing will only get worse the more simple video editing becomes and the faster computers get in the future.

Thanks for listening to the swearing though...

Here we go mate - apparently there's recently been some progress in Brazil and Fernando Aragon described last Thursday as 'a date that will go down in history of Ufology'.



Ministry of Defence receives ufologists to handle documents on UFOs






Brasilia, 04/18/2013 - Members of the Brazilian Committee of UFO researchers (CBU) and representatives of the Armed Forces met on the afternoon of Thursday, the Ministry of Defence (MD), to address the access to military documents dealing with accounts involving unidentified flying objects (UFOs). The meeting was the unfolding of a meeting held in early February, when the ministry discussed administrative procedures for responding to requests for information from more than 30 speakers from Brazil in the IV World Forum of Ufology . At the time, it was determined that all documents under the responsibility of the Navy, Army and Air Force related to the subject were made ​​public, as established by the Law on Access to Information (LAI)..

"This is a date that will go down in history of ufology," said Fernando Aragon, UFO Magazine. "It is the first time that the Ministry of Defense of a country calls ufologists to talk formally about flying saucers," celebrated. "We are optimistic about the door was open and we hope to advance the discussions," said Aragon.

Cheers for that mate, I'm quite sure that when I first heard about this, I think it was AJ Gevard who said that the military has hundreds of hours worth of UFO footage (from possibly this case, or another well-known Brazilian case), that is yet to be released so it'll be interesting to see if they get it
