A.J.!

The visual evidence suggests to me that Senhor Anonymous is less
than honest and is amusing himself at our expense.

How did Senhor Anonymous know in advance that this sonda or UFO
would rise from the ground and move to the right as we see in
the first few seconds of the 12 second video clip that was taken
with his cell phone camera. If this video clip is of a real UFO,
why did Senhor Anonymous not center his cell phone camera on it
but started recording with the sonda to the extreme left of the
field of view?

I would have been very excited should I have seen a UFO on the
ground and once I started recording with my video camera, the
nervous shaking of my hands would be evident. As for our
witness, Senhor Anonymous seems to have had time to set up a
tripod for his cell phone camera which is rock-steady during
this brief video clip.

As for those handheld glowing fragments allegedly recovered from
one of the sondas or UFOs that exploded, I was able to duplicate
these still pictures (see URL blow) with just a piece of white
printer paper and a bright flashlight with a narrow beam of
light in a darkened room.

There are additional details that convinced to me that this is a
hoax which I will keep to myself so as not to encourage copycats
or other mischievous persons whose activities serve to discredit
ufology.

At this stage of the investigation, I do not think the unchecked
story and unverified images provided by Senhor Anonymous
warrants so much coverage in any reputable journal, including
'Brazilian UFO Magazine'.
