Date: May 13, 1960
Location: six-state area of Brazil
Time: 7 p.m.
Summary: UFO sightings in a six-states area of Brazil on May 13, 1960, one of which in the state of Ceara, when at 7 p.m., more than one hundred witnesses are said to have observed a dark gray and circular craft, 20 meters in diameter, with a powerful light, maneuvering and hovering in the sky. The next day, around 4 a.m., a farmer named Raimondo Sulino, or Raimundo dos Santos or maybe Raimundo Sulino dos Santos, reportedly saw two craft, not described, posed on the beach, or, depending on the versions, landing on the hill close to a farm called Capin Acu in Paracuru, in this same state of Brazil.
He approached until some unspecified distance, and saw several small “entities”, of human appearance, of pale skins, who were in blue uniforms with white helmets. These “entities” made friendly gestures at him, but he was frightened and run away. He came back later with other men, and traces, not described, allotted to these craft were reportedly found. The majority of the summaries published afterwards in the ufological literature do not mention anymore that these “entities” were in blue uniforms with white helmets and apparently nobody considered the possibility that the witness might have failed to recognize two military helicopters posed in the night at a certain distance.
