In an area known as the ‘Roswell of South America,’ Varginha, Brazil, UFO sightings are plentiful, and there are even rumours of alien life forms hiding in the jungles outside the city. One particular alien sighting from 1996 has the Chasing UFOs in hot pursuit of the truth. Their hunt for answers leads the team through some of the wildest terrains on earth, where they brave the rapids of South America’s waterways, explore a poorly ventilated cave in the depths of the jungle and literally walk into a giant spider’s nest. But the most compelling evidence they find comes from a series of eyewitness in the city, including the former commander of the Brazilian airspace defence command, who offers some inspiring insight into the UFO activity. The evidence may be strong enough to transform Ryder into a full-on believer. She says, ‘For the first time in my life I’m caught believing that the possibility of UFOs is all too real.’
