The Shag Harbour incident is very important because there are very few cases where we have some good indication that something came down. Stanton Friedman
In 1967 a dramatic UFO incident upended Shag Harbour’s quiet ways … Suddenly the luminous object turned on its side and plummeted into the harbour waters … A small gathering of spectators: the witnesses stood and stared mesmerised by the strange light on the water. Then just as suddenly as it had appeared it vanished … A thick layer of an unknown substance: ‘a great bubbly foam and it was yellow’ … This left the small town of Shag Harbour to become big news … ‘The UFOs start moving again while still submerged under the water and move down the coast to Nova Scotia and over the Gulf of Maine: once in the Gulf of Maine they surface and fly away. This was a genuine UFO event.’ UFO Files s1e9: UFOs: Then and Now? Cause for Alarm, History 2004
According to government records, the object travelled from south to north along the Nova Scotia coastline. At one point it stops and hovers, then at approximately 11.20 p.m. it enters the water at a forty-five-degree angle three hundred yards offshore. UFO Files s3e2: Deep Sea UFOs
There are dozens of eye-witnesses but few explanations. UFO Files s3e5: Canada’s Roswell
But an investigation twenty-five years later produced declassified government documents and some startling revelations. ibid.
4th October 1967: Something unusual was happening in the skies over Nova Scotia, Canada ... The night of the UFOs. ibid.
The object drifted across the harbour. ibid.
Other calls started pouring in: the calls came from nearby Bear Point, Cape Sable Island and Maggie Garon’s Point all reporting the same thing. ibid.
The fishermen realised the strange foam was connected to whatever had crashed in the harbour. ibid.
Even more puzzling than the foam was the lack of any debris at the site. ibid.
The Shag Harbour Incident had become a military matter. ibid.
The diver informed Styles that a flotilla of US Navy and Canadian ships had anchored over the two objects at Shelburne. ibid.
September 1st 1974 Saskatchewan, Canada: ‘Metallic-looking, flat on the bottom, it was domed on top, was hovering just a foot or so above the ground’ … It’s not just one UFO but an entire fleet … Shortly after, the objects disappear … ‘Five rings, all swirled compressed.’ UFO Files s4e1: UFOs of the 70s
Shag Harbour: The first indication of this mysterious occurrence would come from local residents who noticed strange orange lights in the sky on the night of October 4, 1967. Most witnesses agreed that there were four orange lights that evening. Five teenagers watched these lights flash in sequence, and then suddenly dive in a 45 degree angle toward the water’s surface. The witnesses were surprised that the lights did not dive into the water, but seemed to float on the water, approximately one-half mile from the shore.
Witnesses at first thought they were watching a tragic airplane crash, and quickly reported as much to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which was located at Barrington Passage. Coincidentally, RCMP Constable Ron Pound had already witnessed the strange lights himself as he drove down Highway 3 en route to Shag Harbour. Pound felt that he was seeing 4 lights, all attached to one flying craft. He estimated the craft to be about 60 feet long.
Constable Pound made his way to the shore to get a closer look at the phenomenal sight. He was accompanied by Police Corporal Victor Werbieki, Constable Ron O’Brien, and other local residents. Pound clearly saw a yellow light slowly moving on the water, leaving a yellowish foam in its wake. All eyes were glued on the light, as it slowly either moved too distant to be seen, or dipped into the icy waters.
Coast Guard Cutter #101 and other local boats rushed to the spot of the sighting, but by the time they arrived, the light itself was gone. However, the crewmen could still see the yellow foam, indicating that something had possibly submerged. Nothing else could be found that night, and the search was called off at 3:00 a.m. UFO Casebook online article

The more you investigate the Shag Harbour story the more detail you get. It never seems to dry up. There’s always another detail that comes up. There’s always another witness that comes forward. Doug Ledger
The classification was, from the outset, above Top Secret, so the vast majority of US officials and politicians, let alone a mere allied minister of defence, were never in the loop ... The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy and let the truth emerge so there can be a real and informed debate about the one of the most important problems facing our planet today. Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of Defence, 2005
