Full Description & Details

"It was 1976 - 1978 (sorry for my english) I was ten or eleven years at that time. I was born in 1967. We, my cousin and I (he was five at that time, and of course he can't remember anything) were playing in one (of three) yards in our grandparents' house. It was a big colonial house. Suddenly, my little cousin point his finger towards the roof, he was the first to see the object. That object was an inverted triangle of an aproximate size of two meters in the base. It was hovering silently at one meter or less of the top of the roof (the object couldn't be more than eight or nine metres from us). My aunt (the mother of my cousin) was ironing some clothes directly underneath the roof and pay little attention at our callings, thinking it was nothing important, just child games.

Being childs, we were not scared; just amazed. Then I decided to go for my grand parent to show him "our discovery." He was having a shaving and reluctantly follow me (while I pulled his arm). I was at that time just a child. Now, I am lawyer, but my grandfather was an astronomer, historian, a very educated person indeed. Well, the thing that I will never forget was his face expression when he saw the object. His face went pale, like he was going to faint. All what he can do was to call my aunt (of course, she noted the urge of his father's voice and promtly came. (She was just under the roof at four or five meters from us). But all of a sudden, the object practicaly "disappears" in the sky, such was the speed of his movement. The clouds were very high; it was a sunny day. It was aproximatly 11:00 a.m.

It was a closed subject in our house, (not for my granfather) and I remember vividly telling to other members of our family what we saw just to be ignored (just a child) or giving all sort of stupid explanations at the phenomenon (maybe it was helicopter, some say) even being a child, I recall thinking if that was an helicopter, it was a very little one; made no noise and move at such speed. I've never heard of that things before. Being treated like an imaginative child, in a lunch, I remember my grandfather shut everybody (he was the most respected member of our family, and he was absolutely lucid at that time) and declared that it was true what I was saying; that what we saw that morning, was a very unusual thing.

My grandfather died in 1980, but he died knowing that our word hides things that our "scientific" community stiil don't know or at least doesn't want to know. I keep in silence, of course, being this fact known by my family and other closest ones. Still amaze me to know the kind of treatment giving at the phenomena by the scientific community."
