Brazilian Fighter jets chased a fleet of mysterious UFOs, including some that were described by pilots as being 300-ft wide and traveling at 11,500 mph.
The extraordinary event occurred on May 19, 1986, near the city of  Sao Paulo.  and has gone on to become known to many Brazilians as the ‘Night of the UFOs’.
Five bewildered pilots testified to seeing 21 objects appear and disappear, while hundreds of troops on the ground also witnessed them – and air force chiefs admitted “there is no explanation.
Brazilian Senate Looks Into UFO Encounters With Military

This is just one of the strange events that were revealed during a hearing that took place in the Brazilian Senate this week on the subject of unexplained encounters with  UFOs.
According to the Sun:
“The event comes after Congress held a hearing in response to footage taken from US Navy fighter planes showing mysterious, unexplained objects darting in the sky – the now famous ‘Tic-Tac’ video.
But the story of what unfolded on a night in Brazil a decade before those videos were taken is every bit as mind-boggling.
Over several hours, hundreds of witnesses, including the elite of the country’s military, saw strange objects that seemed to move at a terrifying speed.
A Familiar Story
Initially, three planes were sent up, including a Mirage F-103, which took off at just before 11 pm with Captain Armindo Sousa Viriato at the helm
Soon his high-performance warplane hit 1,000 mph but as he closed in on the UFO, it accelerated to a speed he calculated as 15 times the speed of sound — or 11,500 mph.
“If there is a plane that can develop that speed, I don’t know of it,” he said in an interview a few years later.

Earlier, the first plane that had taken off, at around 10.30 p.m., was an F-5E piloted by Lieutenant Kleber Caldas Marinho.
“He described closing in on the target “which stopped moving towards me and started to climb”.
“I kept following the contact until about 30,000 feet when I lost radar contact and was left with just visual contact,” he said.
Intelligence Behind Phenomena
According to a 2009 air force report into the ‘Night of the UFOs’ Brazil’s top defense experts  “think that the phenomena are solid and reflect, in a certain way, intelligence”.
This was due “to the ability to follow and maintain a distance from observers, as well as to fly in formation”.
