Rumors are circulating online of a UFO crash near Magė, Brazil, but we have no concrete evidence of anything. That doesn’t mean the country is lacking in detailed, documented UFO cases though.
Rarely-seen declassified documents disclose significant encounters in the country, including encounters with humanoids by educated observers, photo evidence of a flying disc deemed “legitimate” by the Brazilian Air Force, sightings of spheres that mirror those seen as recently as 2014 California, and the famous “Operation Plate.”
