New UFO Crash In Brazil Forest? - Explosion, Devastation... But
No Wreckage

A huge UFO was seen by hundreds of witnesses - some of them
Kaiapoh Indians - when it crossed over the skies of Sao Felix do
Xinguh on October 9th up in Parah State. This UFO fell down in
the middle of the forest about 40 kms away from town.

It took some time for this information to reach the press
because that region is slihgtly out of the day-to-day Brazilian
media observation range. But on last Monday, October 25th , the
Brazilian Network "Bandeirantes" presented a special report on
this occurence.

"Destruction, fire, fear" - these were the words used by
Bandeirante's correspondent for Parah State, Ronaldo Vilhena, to
describe the fall of such a strange object that flew low over
Sao Felix city, where the population works mostly with cattle
and wood extraction.

Although the Bandeirante special report has not dealt
specifically with the possibility of this occurrence to be of
extra terrestrial nature, the implications were quite clear.

It was Saturday, October 9th, around 4 pm. It was a normal,
beautiful day when the population of Sao Felix city heard a
enormous thundering and right after that, they spotted a bright
object flying over the city, leaving this smoke trail behind it
- it looked pretty much like a rocket smoke trail.

This smoke track clearly indicated the direction followed by
this weird flying object, after passing over the city,
disappearing among the mountains about 30 kms away.

Some seconds later on, the population of Sao Felix [and Kaiapoh
indians from 4 different tribes] heard a gigantic explosion - as
described by one of the witnesses Gildemar de Souza: "It was
more like a big explosion, like a bomb, that trembled the
ground". The impact and the explosion of this object became the
main subject of talk in town.

Bandeirantes Network going beyond its competitors, sent a
exploration team to that area to find out what really happened
near Xingu river. The hypotheses of a big meteorite was a real
possibility among this team - once again, nobody mentioned an
alien vehicle. There had been some speculation [inside
Bandeirantes] also about the possibility of a spy airplane from
somewhere that had suffered an accident, since no red alert was
started, in search of any Brazilian aircraft.

Two geologists participated in this expedition. No ufologist or
airplane crash specialist were informed about the event at that

Flying in this small mono-engine airplane, this team left Sao
Felix, heading towards Maria Preta indian tribe, about 50 kms
away. Then, as they approached the impact zone, they used a
small boat to go up Xingu river, getting close the border
between Parah state and Mato Grosso state.

There, they found another Kaiapoh tribe, who was nearer the
impact place. "That thing was very...very big,...the ground
shook up" said this Kaiapoh indian named Kruakruque. With the
help of two other Kaiapoh indians, this exploration team finally
got to the crash site, where the some parts of woods were still
on fire - "16 days after the incident". What they found out
there was impressive: hundreds of trees torn off the ground
completely destroyed and still burning/smoking but, no evidence
or residue of any aircraft, meteorite - plus no marks on the
soil. Something had obviously impacted the ground and left no
clues, of what it could have been. Simply "nothing". Very

"It's very frustrating, coming all this way up here to see all
this devastation and no evidence of what could have caused this
disorder" - said one of the geologists: Romulo Angelica. His
colleague, geologist Nelio Rezende also said: "we found this
very strange because, we should see at least a crater here; but
there is no crater around here. We honestly don't know what has

No radioactivity was detected at the supposed crash site. The
only things that really caught the team's attention besides the
destruction of the trees and the fire, was this very "weird and
unrecognizable smell in the air". "It was not burned wood smell,
not gunpowder smell, not even burned fuel smell" - confirmed the
Bandeirante's reporter.

No other information is available at the present time. We'll
keep an eye on this story and any developments will be certainly
