"I saw a bright light. Suddenly that thing descended on the mountain", said Maciel.
He say that the object had a red color and made a "buzz" noise.

The man assured that he informed the Pesqueiro's owner, Mr. Rubens Vital de Paula, several times about the incident.
He even called to Ruben's house at that night to tell him about the incident. Vital admitted he didn't give much attention to Maciel. "He said that he saw, but I didn't give attention. I don't believe or discredit", said Vital.

He said that one of the times he picked up the phone and sad joking: "If the alien want to fish at night charge him only R$ 25 (twenty five reais)".

"One day I shot him, but nothing happened" sad Maciel.
Several times he didn't go to the work because he was afraid.
"When I see it I get scared. At this point my legs shake", sad Maciel, that almost cry when talking about it.

"The light stopped at the Mountain for 5 minutes, then flew away".
"The place is very dark and that thing illuminated the lake".

The ufologist Claudeir Covo ordered to isolate the area and to take samples of soil, and a mould of plaster of the "feet".
