OCTOBER 30, 1978, CARMO DA CACHOEIRA, MINAS GERAIS, BRAZIL, SEBASTIANA FRANCELINA DE JESUS, A BROTHER, AND A COUSIN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

It seems ufologist Ubirajara Franco Rodrigues reported that in Carmo Da Cachoeira, Minas Gerais, Brazil, on October 30, 1978, at 09:30p.m., Sebastiana Francelina de Jesus, an older brother, and a younger cousin were traveling by Jeep on their way to a local farm under a torrential rain, when suddenly an unknown force seemed to halt the vehicle in its tracks, pulling it backwards, and into the mud on the side of the road, where it stuck.

As the three people attempted to dislodge the Jeep, a very large object emitting an intense rotating light suddenly appeared. It flew over them at very low altitude and then descended to hover a few meters away from the witnesses. The light from the object was so bright that it temporarily blinded the three young people, and the older witness almost fainted of fright.

Two bright rotating beams of light constantly illuminated the area around them and the interior of the Jeep. They could also hear a steady droning noise coming from the object.

After a while the witnesses began hearing what seemed to be human voices coming from the object, speaking in an unknown language.

The terrified witnesses began yelling for help as they began to feel a bizarre effect apparently as a result to the proximity of the object: all three felt as if they were "floating" like if there was a loss of gravity. They also described it as feeling like "they were growing in size."

Finally the object began to move away, throwing up into the air numerous rocks and debris. As it disappeared from view, a small spherical orange-yellow light seemed to follow the craft as it left the area at high speed. The witnesses then returned to normal.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Carmo Da Cachoeira, Minas Gerais, Brazil, on October 30, 1978, at 2130, Sebastiana Francelina de Jesus an older brother and a younger cousin were traveling by Jeep on their way to a local farm when suddenly an unknown force seemed to halt the vehicle in its tracks pulling it backwards and into the mud on the side of the road. All this while a torrential rain was falling. The Jeep was hopelessly stuck in the mud on the side of the road. As the three witnesses attempted to dislodge it a very large object emitting an intense rotating light suddenly appeared. The object flew over them at very low altitude and then descended to hover a few meters away from the witnesses. The light from the object was so bright that it temporarily blinded the three young people. The older witness almost fainted of fright. Two bright rotating beams of light constantly illuminated the area around the witnesses and the interior of the Jeep. They could also hear a steady droning noise coming from the object. After a while the witnesses began hearing what seemed to be human voices coming from the object, the voices spoke in an unknown language. The terrified witnesses began yelling for help as they began to feel a bizarre effect apparently as a result to the proximity of the object. All three felt as if they were "floating" apparently related to the loss of gravity. They also described it as feeling like "they were growing in size." Finally the object began to move away throwing up into the air numerous rocks and debris, as it disappeared from view, a small spherical orange-yellow light seemed to follow the craft as it left the area at high speed.

Oct. 30, 1978; Carmo Da Cachoeira, Minas Gerais, Brazil

9:30 PM. Sebastiana Francelina de Jesus, his older brother, and a younger cousin were traveling by Jeep on their way to a local farm in Carmo Da Cachoeira, Minas Gerais, Brazil when suddenly an unknown force halted the vehicle in its tracks, then pulled it backwards into the mud on the side of the road. All this occurred while a torrential rain was falling. The Jeep was hopelessly mired in the mud. As the three witnesses attempted to dislodge it a very large object emitting an intense rotating light suddenly appeared. The UFO flew over them at very low altitude and then descended to hover a few meters away from the witnesses. The light from the object was so bright that it temporarily blinded the three young people. The older man nearly fainted from fright. Two bright rotating beams of light illuminated the area around them and the interior of the Jeep. They could also hear a steady droning noise coming from the object. After a while they began to hear what seemed to be human voices coming from the object, but the voices spoke in an unknown language. The terrified witnesses began screaming for help because they began to feel a bizarre effect: all three felt as if they were "floating." They also described the feeling like "they were growing in size." Finally the UFO began to move away throwing numerous rocks and debris up into the air. As it sped away from view a small spherical orange-yellow light followed the craft. The witnesses then felt their environment return to normal. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, citing Ubirajara Franco Rodrigues).

The source indication is a broken link.

Points to consider:

A rapid search enabled me to find that in 2012 Sebastiana Francelina de Jesus is at the head of a trading company, bearing her name, 367 B street of deputy Manoel Costa, in the center of Carmo Da Cachoeira, MG, Brazil. This seems to show, in the absence of better confirmation, than one of the witnesses seems to be a real person.

Dr. Ubirajara Franco Rodrigues, Brazilian ufologist, is better known as one of the principal investigator of the famous 1996 Varginha case, also in Minas Gerais.

It should be noted that according to the ones or the others in ufology, a case in which only of the voices of occupants of a UFO are heard is or is not a "CE3".

Though the case seems interesting, with 3 witnesses, the noise of the craft, the debris thrown away when it went, the human voices, may indicate it was some sort of police helicopter. However, this is far from certain, as an helicopter noise would have likely covered the voices of its occupants. An investigation report with more detailed information would have been welcome, if any investigation was indeed conducted.
