Another Brazilian Military Officer Reveals UFO Investigation,

Observation And Physical Evidence

The commander of an Army installation in the Brazilian Pantanal

area established the official investigation of spherical

nocturnal objects reported to have burned vegetation and

terrorized people. Military personnel sighted the UFO and

obtained photos and physical evidences.

Report by A. J. Gevaerd, editor of the Brazilian UFO Magazine


This is the report of a new investigation and interview I just

conducted with the Retired Brazilian Army Lieutenant-Coronel Leo

T=E9rcio Sperb resident in Rio dos Cedros, a small town in the

state of Santa Catarina, south of Brazil. The interview was

obtained thanks to information given by former commander Jos=E9

Am=E9rico Medeiros, UFO Magazine consultant and NARCAP

investigator, and performed with UFO investigator and volunteer

translator of the Brazilian UFO Magazine Luis Medeiros.

The full interview is being transcribed for complete publication

at the Brazilian UFO Magazine, and what can be now advanced is

that the former Army military was involved in a major UFO

incident in 1977, the very same year when Operation Saucer

occurred in the Amazon, a hot year for Brazilian Ufology.

Lieutenant-Coronel Leo T=E9rcio Sperb revealed that this new found

incident took place when he held the highly important position

as commander for the 2nd Frontier Battalion, in the city

Caceres, state of Mato Grosso, West of Brazil.

The former military commander reported that in mid 1977 he was

informed by his men that a small settlement located somewhere in

the middle of the Cuiaba-Caceres Road was highly excited about

sightings of a strange and recurring luminous object that

appeared predominantly at night. Having always been opened to

UFO issues, and seeing the reports were significant, he sent a

first man to do the preliminary investigations.

Captain Abrao (full name unknown) was commissioned to go to the

site, talk to witnesses and collect as much data as possible and

also physical evidence of whatever was happening in the

mentioned location. One piece of evidence found and retrieved

was a sandal with burning marks similar to the burns caused by a

welder's torch, found in the center of a vast circular area of

burnt vegetation left by the object, according to the astonished

witnesses. They also reported that the UFO was regular on those


Back to the 2nd Frontier Battalion, Captain Abrao reported the

facts to Lieutenant-Coronel Sperb and handed over his report as

well as the collected evidence, which leaded Sperb to conclude

that something serious was happening in the area. The commander

then gathered a troop of four men to be sent immediately to the

spot: one corporal and three soldiers. They received expressed

orders to keep a stake-out in specific places in the woods close

to the village, according to the witnesses' guidance, so they

could have a full view of the unidentified flying object and

photograph it as it moved.

At the end a week, the troop was successful in documenting the

observation of spherical UFOs, brightly lit and exactly like

described by the villagers. Several black-and-white pictures

were taken and handed over to the commander, who concluded the

troop's mission was done. The photos would show lights similar

to those in pictures obtained by the Operation Saucer. The

Lieutenant-Coronel Leo T=E9rcio Sperb wrote up a report, attached

the photos and collected evidence, and forwarded them all to the

Army Corps in Corumba, state of Mato Grosso do Sul, to which his

Corps was subordinate.

The former military commander reported that after the troop

withdrew, the UFOs apparently did not trouble the villagers

again. He added that he never got any reply to his report to the

headquarters in Corumba.

With this incident, collected by the Brazilian UFO Magazine -

that goes after witnesses and evidence wherever they may be -

the Brazilian UFO community now have one more UFO incident

definitely involving military forces in the country, in the

course of which Army men on an official mission and using

official resources of that force not only witnessed but also

registered the occurrence of a phenomena considered of

extraordinary origin. Other important military to give full

statements to the Brazilian UFO Magazine are brigadier Jos=E9

Carlos Pereira and former Aeronautics minister brigadier

Socrates Monteiro.

When asked about his personal view of the alien presence on

Earth, Lieutenant-Colonel Leo T=E9rcio Sperb demonstrated that he

belongs to a lineage of Brazilian military that is quite open

and prepared to face the reality of the UFO Phenomenon. He

asserted that he thinks "there's no question about the existence

of other intelligences in contact with Earth's humankind", and

that "contact between them and us is inevitable and will

definitely happen in the future".

As for the campaign UFOs: Freedom of Information Now, in

progress since 2004 and led by Brazilian UFO Magazine through

the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (Comissao Brasileira

de Ufologos, CBU), Sperb said that civilian ufologists have

every right and reason to request the secret documents kept by

the Armed forces, and that the government should not only

acknowledge the UFO Phenomenon's reality but also disclose its

files. "The truth must come out in the open", said the reformed
