Protesters in Brazil film UFO while drone films protesters (Video)

A UFO video from Sao Paulo, Brazil, filmed on June 17 during a protest shows a white light flying around above the crowd. However, video from a drone shows the protesters from high above, making it likely the UFO and the drone are one in the same.

Brazilians took to the streets in a nationwide protest on Monday. It was estimated that nearly a quarter of a million people participated in the protests. The next day, a mysterious video surfaced on YouTube showing a brightly lit object hovering above the crowd. The video resolution is low, making it difficult to make out the structure of the craft. The video is making a buzz on the internet, and some are calling it “ground breaking.”

However, another video was posted that day of aerial video taken of the crowds in Sao Paulo by TV Folha. This video is taken by a drone that is hovering and zooming around above the crowds at various heights, very much like what is seen in the “UFO” video.

This would not be the first time a drone filming protesters was mistaken to be otherworldly. In a similar UFO story we reported on, a drone was filmed over a protest in Moscow, Russia, in December of 2011, and was posted on the internet as a UFO. Russian news agency, Ridus, an independent community of civilian journalist, claimed that drone and posted video of it in action on their website.

  1. The shots of the crowd show them waving to something that they could clearly see was filming them. Shouldn’t there be close up shots of whatever that was? It must have been a clearly man-made drone with a camera on it, (and with either a propeller like a helicopter, or wings like a plane). The object filmed here looks featureless and spherical (though that could be because of the low resolution camera. That said, what are the protestors that are filming this craft saying? Surely they could have seen man made aspects such as propellers and wings with their eyes? I do not believe man made drones are spherical.
