ALIEN hunters have been sent into a frenzy after a mysterious craft supposedly crashed in a UFO sighting hotspot

The residents in Peruibe, South Brazil apparently witnessed a bright light earlier this month and found vegetation smashed to the ground.

Also reported was a bizarre mark was left on the ground – measuring 13 by 2 metres – .

This was cordoned off immediately by local officials.

Brazilian media did not bring the incident to light for a full week. Which has been attributed to a cover up.

UFO investigator Saga Susseliton Souza said: “We looked at it in the last few days and we already noticed that it was not made by a human.

“It was a UFO, really, that landed there in circular movements so the vegetation was just crumpled.There was a power cut in the area at the time of the sighting and residents reported “nausea and malaise”.

The city is a hotbed for UFO activity, with 79 sightings reported since 1998.

ET hunter Scott C.Waring has posted the finding on his website UFO Daily Sightings.

He claims they are just 6.6km south of New Providence Island in the Bahamas.

The structures are 100m wide and 60m high.

And incredible photos seem to suggest he could be on to something.
