On the night of October 4, 1967, residents of Shag Harbour, N.S., reported seeing four bright lights flashing in the sky. The strange object was flying low over the fishing village when it suddenly tilted to a 45-degree angle and dropped towards the water — as shown on this coin! Black light-activated features set the mood for our re-telling of this unsolved mystery that prompted a government investigation. The vertical image conveys a feeling of awe at the sight of the strange object crashing down off the coast of Nova Scotia, before disappearing and leaving only a trail of sulphurous-smelling yellow foam.

At first, no one referred to it as a UFO. Laurie Wickens, then 18, noticed the lights while driving with friends and estimated the craft to measure some 60 feet in diameter. But when it came crashing down into the sea, a flash of light and a roar led some witnesses to believe a plane crash had just occurred.

Three RCMP officers, including one who had also seen the lights, arrived at the impact site to find the strange object glowing in the water less than a kilometer from the shore. Officials contacted the Rescue Coordination Center in Halifax to find out if an aircraft had gone missing - all were accounted for. Coast Guard and military vessels also arrived on the scene but they were already too late: the lights had already vanished and only the sparkling yellow foam remained on the surface.

The search for a downed craft continued into the early morning hours but there was never any evidence of debris. A diving detachment of the Royal Canadian Navy also combed the seabed until the investigation was called off on October 9.

What crashed in the water? Was it top-secret aircraft? An alien ship? Government documents show authorities could not offer a conventional explanation. Even today, the Shag Harbour Incident remains a mystery and one of the best-documented encounters with an unidentified flying object.
