Brazil’s Government Orders UFO Sightings be Documented

Brazil’s government has recently ordered that it’s air force is to record any UFO sightings. The order also extends to civilian pilots and air traffic controllers, all of which will have to register with the National Aerospace Defense Command. All of the records, which will be maintained at the Brazil national archives in Rio de Janeiro, will be available to those researching UFO phenomena. These records will contain testimonials and even picture and video data if it is available.

The Brazilian Air Force has gone on record as stating they would limit themselves in the reporting process. They want to make it known that they are not UFO chasers. “Air Force Command does not have a specialized structure to carry out scientific experiments on these phenomena and will limit itself to recording any events,” the Air Force said in a released statement.

I must admit, I feel like this is a semi-waste of time. There are so many questions running through my head right now. Are they making the assumption that since people are pilots and air traffic controllers that their reports are in some way more reliable than a pedestrian? Who is going to be in charge of “validating” these claims? How are they going to prevent hoaxers? If they are not going out to chase the UFO sighting how will we determine whether or not it’s an “authentic” UFO and not a sky lantern caught in an air current? This seriously seems like a huge waste of time in my opinion. I stand on the side of those who say if the aliens are coming to Earth, they will make themselves known. And no, I don’t consider UFO sightings proof they are making themselves known.

About Bobby the Paranormal Skeptic
Bobby Nelson is a skeptic, writer, and co-host of Strange Frequencies Radio. His personal blog can be found online at www.porkrhine.com At one time, Bobby was what could be called a "true believer" in paranormal phenomenon. Having been an active investigator of the paranormal for 12 years with several different Toledo based teams, he has examined countless claims of activity. But years worth of research and investigation proved to him that the evidence for these claims are generally lacking and, furthermore, the vast majority of so-called scientific paranormal investigators were using improper methodologies which caused them to draw both false and misleading conclusions.
