Go to the limits of human experience… and beyond. From the fringes of the galaxy to our own backyards, the UFO FILES searches for evidence of life beyond our world.
Tracing the long, convoluted history of UFO encounters and research, this unique series opens new windows into the controversial field.
In September 1977, a luminous object hovering about 15 feet over the water appeared in the night sky over the Brazilian island of Colares in the Amazon delta. For nearly two months, strange flying objects visited the island--big, small, saucer-shaped, cigar-shaped, luminous and dark.
Witnesses report feeling as if blood had been sucked from them by strange rays emitted from the craft. The Brazilian Air Force sent a task force to the island for three months and it returned with 300 night photos and several motion picture reels. Though a 500-page report was compiled, it was long kept from the public. Then, in May 2005, a few details were released, but many questions remain unanswered.
