[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Mossoro, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, in 1959, at dawn, a man encountered an oval shaped craft resting on the ground on three metallic legs. He was able to see three undescribed "little men" in it. The craft suddenly exploded in a brilliant flash of light and disappeared. Albert Rosales notes that a similar incident reported in 1988 in the same area.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Bob Pratt, UFO Danger Zone.

Points to consider:

The data is obviously insufficient to allow a reasonable evaluation.
