On November 26, 2006, a seemingly ordinary day in the periphery of the city of Natal, in the state of Rio Grande no Norte, Brazil, something extraordinary was captured on camera. Roberto Di Sena, a former military personnel, inadvertently photographed a disc-shaped object in a location known as Alagamar. What makes this case truly intriguing is that Di Sena did not observe anything unusual in the sky at the time and only discovered the mysterious object after reviewing his photographs.

The day unfolded like any other for Di Sena. Between 08h30 and 10h00 a.m. local time, he was snapping pictures at random, not seeking anything specific or unusual. The weather was typical for the region, and there were no apparent anomalies or disturbances. It was only later, when reviewing the images, that the anomalous disc-shaped object became apparent, floating serenely in the clear blue sky.

Upon discovery of the object in the photograph, the case caught the attention of Brazilian UFO researchers, including A.J. Gevaerd of the Brazilian Center for Flying Saucer Research (CBPDV). Brazilian UFO expert engineer Claudeir Covo conducted an initial analysis of the photograph and concluded that the object was indeed something in the air, though not as small as a hubcap.

The analysis ruled out simple explanations like copy & paste procedures from other legitimate UFO photos. The complexity of the object, combined with its apparent size and positioning, left researchers puzzled. The investigation was rigorous but remained inconclusive, adding to the enigmatic nature of the photograph.

Brazil has a rich history of UFO sightings, and the Alagamar case fits within this broader pattern. While the incident itself was unique, it echoes previous unexplained sightings in the country. Brazil’s stance in the international UFO community has always been prominent, and cases like this continue to solidify its reputation as a hotspot for unidentified aerial phenomena.

As with many UFO sightings, the Alagamar case was not without controversy. While some saw the photograph as genuine evidence of extraterrestrial activity, others were more skeptical. Debates raged over the possibility of photographic tampering or natural explanations for the sighting.


Despite the diligent investigation, the case remains unresolved, fueling ongoing debates between skeptics and believers. The ambiguities surrounding the incident leave it open to interpretation and contribute to its enduring fascination.

More than just a fleeting curiosity, the Alagamar sighting has left a lasting impact on UFO research in Brazil. It serves as a testament to the complex and often baffling nature of unexplained aerial phenomena. Whether seen as genuine evidence of extraterrestrial life or a still-unresolved puzzle, the case continues to intrigue researchers and enthusiasts alike.

The disc-shaped object photographed in Alagamar remains an enigma. It stands as a symbol of the profound mysteries that our world still holds, even in an age of technological advancement and scientific discovery. The case invites us to reflect on the unknown, to question our understanding, and to remain open to the extraordinary.
