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.

See info and videos about Operation Saucer here:




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
