Last August 26, 2012, four teenage girls from the city of Tres Pontas, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, captured the UFO video above. We can hear them gasping at the sight of what may look like a flying saucer. “We can see it clearly! It’s a spaceship, I’m sure!”, they yell.
[...] it was a bunch of nice enthusiasts on a social network, part of the group Brazilian Center of Ufology (CUB) who correctly pointed the UFO was a laminated helium balloon.
And it was a simple remote-controlled, helium filled shark balloon. Upon some scouring the web I found it’s from the Air Swimmer brand, 60 inches (1,3m) long and being sold in Brazil for around a USD100.
This has happened before.
MANY balloons and man-made objects grab attention and are thought to be UFOs. If they are REALLY clear and impressive videos, they turn out to be YouTube hoaxes. But, we’re here to point out that UFOs are becoming more frequently, IFOs.
Here is the video that made the rounds in Brazil.
