I had to add the skeptical side of this case. The original author presented it (in broken English) as if the case was a slam dunk mysterious UFO case. In fact many, even in the UFO community, consider it a hoax. There are many inexplicable UFO cases. This is not one of them. Point 2 - I feel that if you don't speak or write English well, you shouldn't try to write a Wikipedia article in English.Rodney420 (talk) 16:17, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Being in accordance with the policies is more important than writing in a native level of English. See WP:NPA to see if you are or not in accordance with the policies here. "Comment on the content, not on the contributor". Victao lopes (talk) 22:17, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

"Skeptical side"[edit]

The "skeptical side" of the history has been removed from the article because it is copyright violation from this site. Copyrighted material should not be just copied and pasted here, it should be rather rewritten, summarized and referenced with the original source. Thank you, Victao lopes (talk) 18:42, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi Victao; you were right about my edit and the copyright, my mistake. Therefore I rewrote and summarized the information and cited the source. Note that the source is actually one that you provided in your original article! I hope this meets with your approval.Rodney420 (talk) 18:09, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm afraid It wasn't me who provided this source. It was Nima Baghaei. Anyway, thanks for changing the paragraph. Victor Lopes (talk) 03:03, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Confessed Hoax[edit]

Barauna admitted he faked the photos. http://forgetomori.com/2010/ufos/trindade-island-case-photographer-admits-hoax/ ZoneSeek 22:16, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

I consider myself to be an "open-minded skeptic" concerning UFOs; in this case the evidence is becoming clear that the photos were hoaxed. One of Brazil's largest UFO magazines has released an article stating that one of Barauna's relatives has testified that Barauna told him that he had faked the photos. It looks like this is one famous UFO case that may have been solved, so to speak. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.145.229.162 (talk) 06:06, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
