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.
