Funny, but it happened at one of the most crowded beach in Rio during a Sunday sunny afternoon. The "Barra de Tijuca Beach" I was with those 3 friends I met at the Youth International Hostel. The brazil-japanese girl, ((name deleted)), from Americana, SP, was the one who first noticed the craft in the sky.

Hundreds of thousand of people were at the beach that day and only ((name deleted)) noticed the light on that sunny day, and she said "look ((name deleted)), what's that thing up there in the sky...?" It took some seconds for me to descry and when I did she said, "no, there's two of them...". The other two friends of hers did not pay much attention in the event, ((name deleted)) and ((name deleted)) are those kind of people that even seeing don't believe, "it might be a baloon, or some other thing made up by men" they said.

About 8 to 10 minutes after, one of the crafts descended at a very observable position and there it stood still for about 3 to 5 m. and then it went towards the see, distancing from the shore.

The other one(the first one we saw) went the same way but so much higher in the sky.
