On October 7, 1993, the camera crew of Julio Trazzi Martins, after a day of shooting, was returning to the city of Sao Thome das letras, south of the Minas Gerais state, Brazil. After going through the city of Cruzilia, at around 7:30PM, they noticed some lights in the sky.
They stopped the vehicle and started to record everything. In his testimony, Trazzi confirmed that he heard the sound of distant and muffed explosions.
After several analyses, it was confirmed that the lights filmed were military flares, shot by cannons of the ESA — Sergeant’s Arms School — from the Brazilian Army, that was in the Traning Base of Gaviao Peak, 45 km away from the cameraman. At the time, it was thought the lights were UFOs.
On March 13, 1997, on Phoenix, Arizona, USA, several witnesses saw something strange in the sky which to this day remains unidentified. That same night, after this sighting, several lights appeared in the sky, which were witnessed by hundreds, perhaps thousands of people. Many of them recorded the event.
Physicist Bruce Maccabee analyzed three videos of the same event, taken from different points. By triangulation, Dr. Maccabee came to the conclusion that these lights were at a distance of approximately 120km, on a military training range, and concluded that the lights were military flares, launched by an airplane.
TV INFA was not in Phoenix examining the facts. We just included the Phoenix lights footage because they have a similar behavior to the Sao Thome das Letras military flares, though they do have a longer duration, which suggests another model was used, with greater light intensity and longer time of burning.
It’s up to the rest of the researchers to conclude if Dr. Maccabee conclusions are correct or not.
