Hello Ken:

Here's a page in English, with just one damning indictment of
Barra di Tijuca 1952:

http://www.project1947.com/shg/condon/case48.html

It seems that the disk was obviously illuminated from the left
as shown... but the hillside below it was illuminated from the
right. If the photo was genuine, then the Sun was in two
opposite places in the sky at the same time.

That alone is enough for me, I put the case right up on my list
of Discredited Sightings:

You might find some other 'favorites' there.
