Residents open up about Shag Harbour UFO sighting
Video and photographic evidence of a daytime UFO sighting over Cape Sable Island on Sept. 15 was showcased at the Shag Harbour Incident Society UFO Museum on Saturday, Oct. 6.
UFO researcher Chris Styles — who was one of the witnesses to the Sept. 15 unidentified flying object sighting — was on hand, as was the UFO researchers Graham Simms and David Cvet.
Laurie Wickens was also a witness to the Sept. 15 sighting, and said the sighting lasted about an hour.
Wickens was also an eyewitness to the Oct. 4, 1967, Shag Harbour UFO incident, in which a sequence of lights was observed travelling along the horizon for some time before the unidentified flying object plunged into the water, leaving a yellow foam behind and unanswered questions that still linger to this day.
Wickens and other local eyewitnesses were present to share their story at the museum, which opened for the day at 10 a.m. The special feature presentation started at 2 p.m. Admission was by donation.
This year marks the 51st anniversary of the Shag Harbour UFO Incident, which has been called the best documented
UFO case in Canada.
The Shag Harbour UFO Centre was also in the news recently for another reason, but not a pleasant one. In early September the centre was broken into and vandalized.
