Dear Santiago,

That's what I want to know. As I wrote on my first e-mail:
"Looking at the film I'm not able to say what it is...."

I have a ufology website here in Brazil and more than 250.000
different people visit the site. I received 452 e-mails with a
simple question. What is this in your opinion? UFOS or Balloon?
And I'm telling everybody that I don't know.

I tell the people about the films I saw, and that some people
believe that they are UFOS and some people tell they are
balloons, but I tell also the people that I don't know because I
didn't see the phenomena.

So now people is asking me to try to get information about this
phenomena from people all over the world, and that's why I
decided to post this question here. I want to learn more about
it before give an answer to the people that read my site.

In Peru I saw an Air Force expert talking about this phenomena,
but people still have doubts about it.

So that's why I want to know every little thing about this
research. I want to have this material to translate it to
Portuguese, so the people can read and they can form their own

I'll never say a word about a phenomena that I didn't search.

So if you can help me to answer those people, please send me the
conclusions about those cases. I'll be very glad to translate it
to Portuguese for all the people to read.

I'll be waiting for the conclusions about it.

Best regards,

Milton Frank
