Greetings to the Members:

While dubbing the Hynek interview of Almiro Barauna from tape to CD, I was stunned to hear that the Trindade Island disc:

1. Undulated (wobbled) and tipped twice.
2. The object was picked up on the Almirante Saldanha's radar 15 minutes before it came into view.
3. All power aboard the ship failed at the time the object came into view and power returned suddenly as the object departed.
4. That all sea gulls, etc. disappeared just before the object came into view.

Note: The interview was done by Hynek on April 19, 1982. Barauna states that the object was seen on the ships radar prior to it's visual appearance, but once the object came into view the ships power went out and restored after the object left the area.
