After this post to the List, people may have a wrong impression
about Claudeir Covo. He was my very close and good friend for
more than 30 years, and not only the co-editor of my magazine
since its beginning, in 1985. So I know very well what he
thought of the UFO Phenomena.

Actually, Claudeir was a strong defender of the extraterrestrial
hypothesis, of which he had absolutely no doubt. He was,
however, a very cautious man with his words when speaking in
public or to the media, and especially cautious when exchanging
with skeptics, because he was aware of what some of them could
do by twisting his words or using them in an improper way.

Those who were close friends of Claudeir know pretty well that
he defended the extraterrestrial origin of UFOs. And it is so
that he was the only researcher present in the investigations of
the Varginha Case defending that more than 2 aliens were
captured. Among friends, and always away from skeptics, he
openly admitted that he concluded, through his investigations,
that as many as 7 aliens could have been captured. And he used
very openly the word "alien" among us.

As for the mentioned Capao Redondo case, he also firmly believed
that it was one of the strongest cases of alien probes in the
history of Brazilian Ufology.
