A solid, "Yo-Yo" shaped craft with lights seen in São Paulo, Brazil in 1983. Followed by weather phenomenon.

My friends and I were vacationing in a farm in the state of São Paulo Brazil. The farm was located in a valley between two hills that were approximately 3 miles apart. The hills were covered with tall grass, shrubbery and a few scattered trees.

the closest town was 15 miles away and the closest large city about 100 miles away.

It was a clear, moonless night with very bright stars. We had a small pit fire burning and the a light in the living room inside the house. Otherwise there was no other light pollution. I was appreciating the clear sky and the quantity and clearness of the stars when I noticed a "yo-yo" shaped object appear from behind the hill to my right.

I say "yo-yo" becuse it was disk shaped and I could see an indentation (as where the string in a yo-yo would go) mid-ship. The edge of the indentation and the edges of the disk were smooth (no right angles). I do not know how deep the indentation went because of the darkeness. The starlight accentuated the edges and flat surfaces of the craft. The bottom side of the craft had a depression (seen as a darker area from the rest of the craft, about 80% of the total size of the circumference). In this depression there were 3 red half-globes. These globes emitted a soft red glow (not like an incandescent lamp, but more like a soft phosphorescent luminesence). They light half-globes were not spinning or blinking. The top of the craft (I cannot say if it was placed in a similar depression as the red half-globes) had a single, larger milky white luminescent dome (it flattened, not a half-globe). This dome was evenly lit just like the red half-globes. There were no other markings or characteristics to be seen. The whole craft was about 30 feet across and about 10 high (not considering the white dome on top. The red lights did not sem to extend past the depression where they were placed). The craft was smooth and the best explanation as to its texture would be that of brushed aluminum, but without the bright shine. It was dark grey (if it was colored).

The craft came from behind the hill on my right. That was about 100 to 200 feet high. It traversed the Valley in about 5 minutes and, at the closest point, it was about 2 football fields away from our position. There was no wind and it flew a straight path at an even pace. There was no noise or any other type of disturbance. Had we not seen it, it could have flown by wihtout any of us noticing it. Unlike in the movies, we did not loose any power in the house or experienced any kind of strange sensations.

The only extraordinary phenomena (besides the sighting) was the fog that followed the craft after its passage. The craft took about 5 minutes to travel the distance between the two hills. About 2 minutes after it had disappeared a "wave" of fog came from the hill were the craft had originally come from. The fog covered the valley within 10 minutes. Although the conditions seem to be right for that kind of weather (cool, clear nights after sunny warm days), that was the only time in our 4-day stay when we had fog.
