      PORTUGAL FIRED A MISSILE AT THE CIGAR-SHAPED UFO

      The Portuguese military fired a ground-to-air missile
      at the luminous UFO that passed over their country during
      the early morning hours of Monday, June 7, 2004.
      (For the original report, see UFO Roundup, volume 9,
      number 23 for June 9, 2004, "Luminous UFO seen by hundreds
      in Portugal," page 5.)
      Portuguese ufologist Gregorio Sao Xavier reported
      that "the cigar-shaped UFO was tracked on radar. It moved
      in a south-to-north direction. It was reported in the
      Portuguese newspapers that 'a target on radar' was found
      at three separate military bases."
      These included "Beja, south of Evora and north of the
      Algarve region; Montijo, near Lisboa (the capital of
      Portugal--J.T.); and Oporto, the second largest city in
      Portugal. The news was released by a colonel in the
      Portuguese Army."
      "That same day, only one report came from a civilian
      identifying the trajectory of the unknown object as coming
      from north to south, and a cigar form was described."
      "Some days later, it was reported on Spanish and
      German TV that an official of the Portuguese Army
      confirmed that a missile had been launched. What most
      people saw trailing smoke" was the missile launched at the
      UFO.
      "Visual contact with the object was made at the base
      in Beja," Gregorio added, "A week later, the photo of a
      cigar-shaped object appeared in a popular (Portuguese)
      magazine. And a few days later, the military officials
      charged with the investigation of the incident closed the
      case, calling it an 'unknown object.'"
      One of the most curious aspects of this case was the
      multiple sightings of a radar-domed AWACS plane, provided
      by NATO, which was seen flying offshore, just west of Cabo
      de Sines, 120 kilometers (72 miles) south of Lisboa.
      (Muito obrigado a Gregorio Sao Xavier por esas
      informacoes.)
