Brazil Releases New UFO Documents

I am very glad to inform to the international UFO community that
this week Brazilian government, through the Brazilian Air Force
commander, lieutenant-brigadier Juniti Saito, has released a new
pile of previously secret UFO documents, now covering the first
decade of the new millennia, from 2000 to 2009. The country was
the first in the world to publicly and officially admit the
importance of the UFO Phenomena.

As I informed here last August, Juniti Saito also gave a major
step to openly recognize the UFO Phenomena as serious and worthy
of immediate actions in Brazil by issuing a public statement,
published in Brazil's official journal, called 'Diario Oficial
da Uniao', regulating how UFO reports should be handled in the
country, by whom and what destination should they have. The
document was published August 10 and is oficial.

The official act, named Portaria 551/GC3, of August 09, 2010,
also indicated the Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command
(COMDABRA) as responsible for receiving and cataloging the
occurrences of UFOs. The records reported by personnel from the
air traffic control system should be forwarded to the
Aeronautics History Documentation Center (CENDOC), as determined
by ordinance. The CENDOC, in turn, is indicated as responsible
for filing copies of records sent and send the originals to the
National Archives.

I have also informed here previously that since Brazilian UFO
disclosure started, a few years ago, a direct result of the
campaign 'UFOs: Freedom of Information Now', the government has
been releasing the files by decade. We had the documents for the
50s, 60s and 70s released last year. Early this year we had the
documents for the 80s. On August 13th we had the files of the
90s and now the documents for the years 2000 to 2009. That
campaign was initiated in 2004 by the Brazilian Committee of UFO
Researchers (CBU), under my command, and through the Brazilian
UFO Magazine.

It is not known the amount of pages released this time, as the
members of CBU haven't had access to the material, which will
happen next week. So far near 5,000 pages have been disclosed,
which is believed to be only a small tip of a big iceberg, still
being kept secret. Because of that, CBU members intend to start
new actions to open more files.

The documents for the decades 50 to 90 can be found here, as a

Of special significance in the set of documents of the years
2000 to 2009 there are several cases involving UFOs pursuing
civilian and military aircraft, as well as being detected by
radar. A very interesting episode happened to a commercial jet
of the Varig Airlines cargo department, followed by a UFO. The
documents will soon be posted at the Brazilian UFO Magazine
website for everyone to see. Details will follow.

Of all, the over 5,000 pages already released by the Brazilian
government, special attention goes to the documents of the 80s,
in which pile there was a very interesting report of the
'Official UFO Night in Brazil', when 21 spherical objects,
estimated 100 meters in diameter - according to military sources
- literally jammed air traffic over the major Brazilian
Airports, when 7 Mirage and F5 jets were scrambled to pursue

The document 'Occurrence Report' in PDF file in Portuguese and
in English are here:



In its Final Considerations section, the 'Occurrence Report'
reads: "As a conclusion of the observed facts in almost all
presentations, it is the opinion of this Command that the
phenomenon is solid and reflects intelligence by its capacity to
follow and sustain distance from the observers, as well as to
fly in formation, and are not necessarily manned craft". Again,
"the phenomenon is solid and reflects intelligence".

The campaign UFOs: Freedom Of Information Now has clearly shown
that civilian UFO researchers can make the difference. Unlike
countries like England and France, for instance, where the
disclosure happened as a result of administrative decisions, in
Brazil it happened as a direct result of a civilian movement,
promoted since 2004 by the Brazilian Committee of UFO
Researchers (CBU), which I founded and of which I was the
coordinator till last January. Now it is Under command of the
geographer federal public servant Fernando Ramalho.

The fact that Brazilian Air Force now recognizes the materiality
of the UFO Phenomena has happened in great deal thanks to the
pressure put over the military by the Brazilian UFO Magazine,
through CBU. As the magazine editor, I have been successful in
locating, convincing and interviewing some top military in
Brazil, who went public about the subject and helped the making
if the decisions, such as lieutenant-brigadier S=F3crates
Monteiro, former minister of Brazilian Air Force S=F3crates
Monteiro and others.

Some of the astounding declarations made by these and other men
can be read here:

"All UFO Secrets Must Be Disclosed", says Brazilian Top Military:


Brazil's former Air Force Minister makes statements about UFOs:


Another Brazilian military officer reveals UFO investigation,
observation and physical evidence:


Retired lieutenant-colonel discloses new revelations on
Operation Saucer In The Amazon, 1977:


The Brazilian UFO Magazine website - www.ufo.com.br - already
has thousands of pages for download, such as over 1,200 pages of
documents of the extinct System for the Investigation of
Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (SIOANI), an official
organization created in 1969 inside the Brazilian Air Force to
deal with the UFO Phenomena in the 60s and 70s. Yeah, the first
publicly known in the world.

Also, or website has over 500 pages and 200 photos of the
Operation Saucer activities, a military mission carried out in
the Amazonian region in 1977 which resulted very successful in
documenting - with over 500 photos and 16 hours of 8mm and 16mm
films - UFOs over the area. Along with other documents received
by the Committee from other military sources.

All the mentioned documents and others can be found here, as a

Please note: Download, print, publicize and otherwise share
these documents, but please do not fail to mention the source,
Brazilian UFO Magazine, and emphasize that this material is now
publicly known thanks to the efforts of the Brazilian Committee
of UFO Researchers (CBU).

These have been very good days for Brazilian Ufology!
