A video has been obtained by Brazilian Federal Police of a UFO that was seen by an Amazonian Tribe back in 2014. The video was recorded by an anthropology student who was visiting them at the time.

My hypothesis:

The object in the video looks very much like one would expect the ISS to look - a white point of light that increases in brightness as it rises above the horizon, through overhead, and then reduces in brightness as it descends. I checked http://www.isstracker.com/historical to see if any ISS passes match the time of the sighting, and although there isnt one at exactly 7pm, there is one at 6.35pm on the date of the sighting. Could it be that the witness Paula Colares was slightly inaccurate in her reporting of the time?

ISS Pass at 18.35 local on 30 July 2014

The federal police reports are available here (https://uapbrazil.com/acre-case/) and most describe a white light moving across the sky. I wonder how many of them match the time and date of ISS passes?

Would be interesting to plot ISS for the other dates/times the "thing" was reported by these indigenous people.

And what of the injuries claimed caused by light "beams" emanating from the object? Since at least one villager claims to have been hospitalized as a result, I'd like to see a medical report detailing the actual injuries. Were they burns, injuries caused by someone tripping/falling by running from something not understood, or even anxiety brought on by a panic attack?

Or possibly made up. Additional evidence would help answer that.

The first thing I notice right off the bat is that some of the subtitles are wrong in a rather tendentious way. In the beginning, someone says "tá aqui o bicho" (here's the animal/critter), which gets translated as "here's the thing". The next thing out of the same person's mouth is "a onça!" (the jaguar), which gets translated as "caution!". There's clearly several conversations taking place about several different things, but the video, by coincidentally mistranslating anything that might provide some crucial context, tries to pass it off as if everyone was transfixed by this light in the sky and very concerned, shooting guns at it, describing "abnormal motions", etc.

Yeah, there is always the issue of a proper translation of such things. So are the inaccurate translations you pointed out Portuguese to English or the native language/dialect of the indigenous people to English?

Portuguese to English. I have no idea what is being said in the native language.
