Should we take UFO sightings more seriously?
A government decree said all pilots as well as air traffic controllers should register any UFO sightings with the national aerospace defence command. There have been several reports of UFOs in Brazil in recent decades.
But the air force said it would limit itself to collecting information, and would not be chasing UFOs.
The move in Brazil comes days after newly-released files revealed that past governments in the UK ordered UFO sightings be kept secret to prevent "mass panic" and that British lawmakers took it so seriously in the 1950s that UK intelligence chiefs met to discuss the matter.
Do you think UFO sightings should be taken more seriously? Do you agree with the move by the Brazilian government? Have there been reported UFO sightings in your area?
