Narratives:

[Ref. af1:] ANTONIO FALEIRO:

9-Arembepe, December-11-1978 - night

In the field a high man with black hair, beard grates and dressing a clothes silver and putting on boots was seen leaving an ufo, similar to a capsized basin, with 12 meter of diameter, that it was there landed. (Alberto Romero)

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Arembepe, Brazil, on December 11, 1978, at night, in a field, a tall human like figure with dark hair, light skin and wearing a tight fitting silvery suit and boots was seen coming out of a metallic basin shaped object about 12 meters in diameter that had landed on a field. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Antonio Faleiro, Brazil."

[Ref. dj1:] DONALD JOHNSON:

Encounters with Aliens on this Day

December 11

1978 - On this night in Arembepe, Brazil a tall human-like figure with light colored skin, dark hair, and wearing a tight fitting silvery suit and boots was seen coming out of a metallic basin-shaped object about 12 meters in diameter that had landed in a field. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, citing Antonio Faleiro, Brazil).

[Ref. ni1:] "THE NICAP WEBSITE":

Dec.11, 1978; Arembepe, Brazil

On this night a tall human-like figure with light colored skin, dark hair, and wearing a tight fitting silvery suit and boots was seen coming out of a metallic basin-shaped object about 12 meters in diameter that had landed in a field. (Source: Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1978, citing Antonio Faleiro, Brazil).

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 11 December 1978 at 21:00 in Arembepe, Brazil, "In a field, a tall human like figure with dark hair, light skin and wearing a tight fitting silvery suit and boots was seen coming out of a metallic basin shaped object about 12 meters in diameter that had landed on a field. No other information."

And: "On this night in Arembepe, Brazil a tall human-like figure with light colored skin, dark hair, and wearing a tight fitting silvery suit and boots was seen coming out of a metallic basin-shaped object about 12 meters in diameter that had landed in a field."

The source indication is a broken link.

Points to consider:

Alberto Romero is a ufologist from Argentina who was a correspondent of the UFO magazine Cuarta Dimension.

I cannot say much about this case of unknown origin and nature, without any information on witnesses, with a more than concise description, without basic ufological data such as duration, distance etc.

At most it seems that the "UFO occupant" is a man, and the UFO thus perhaps a helicopter.
