Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In 1966 a ufology magazine reports on a story that was recorded by the Brazilian ufology groupe SBDEV.

It is that near Minduri, Brazil, just after dawn some unspecified day in August 1958, two "giants" estimated to be six meters tall and clad in brilliant red garb, were seen by three witnesses. The "giants" were walking up the side of a hill and only their backs were seen.

The author indicates that near Minduri, Brazil, just after dawn an unspecified day in August 1958, two "giants" estimated to be six meters tall and clad in brilliant red garb, were seen by three witnesses.

These entities were walking up the side of a hill and only their backs were seen.

Gordon Creighton indicates as source the S.B.E.D.V. Bulletin, which provides a sketch of the entities.

Points to consider:

With the meager information provided in one second hand source 8 years after the alleged event, credibility is lacking. All that can be noted is that no UFO is involved, that the witnesses are unnamed and unspecified, that the distance at which they estimated the entities to be 6 meters tall is not mentioned at all, and that overall, the information is totally insufficient to risk any sensible evaluation.
