Report by A. J. Gevaerd, editor of the Brazilian UFO Magazine (www.ufo.com.br)
This is the report of a new investigation and interview I just conducted with the Retired Brazilian Army Lieutenant-Coronel Leo Tércio Sperb resident in Rio dos Cedros, a small town in the state of Santa Catarina. The interview was obtained thanks to information given by former VASP Airlines commander, José Américo Medeiros, UFO Magazine contributor, and performed with UFO investigator and volunteer translator of the Brazilian UFO Magazine Luis Medeiros.
The full interview is being transcribed for complete publication on Brazilian UFO Magazine, and what can be now advanced is that the former Army military was involved in a major UFO incident in 1977, the very same year when Operation Prato occurred in the Amazon, a hot year for Brazilian Ufology. Lieutenant-Coronel Leo Tércio Sperb revealed that this new found incident took place when he held the highly important position as commander for the 2nd Frontier Battalion, in the city Cáceres, state of Mato Grosso, West of Brazil.
The former military commander reported that in mid 1977 (he was unable to remember the date precisely) he was informed by his men that a small settlement located somewhere in the middle of the Cuiabá-Cáceres Road was highly excited about sightings of a strange and recurring luminous object that appeared predominantly at night. Having always been opened to UFO issues, and seeing the reports were significant, he sent a first man to do the preliminary investigations.
