The Canadian Shag Harbor UFO Incident - July 10, 2013

We will explore two of Canada's UFO reporting agencies: Project Magnet and Second Story, both established in the early 1950's.

Also we will examine some details of the infamous Shag Harbor UFO incident. This case is one of the very few where a government agency formally acknowledges an unidentified flying object.

It was determined that no known aircraft was involved in the incident.


The Shag Harbor UFO incident was the reported impact of an unknown large object into waters near Shag Harbor, a tiny fishing village in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia on October 4, 1967.

The impact was investigated by various civilian (Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Canadian Coast Guard) and military (Royal Canadian Navy and Royal Canadian Air Force) agencies of the Government of Canada.

The RCN conducted at least one underwater search to attempt to locate the remains of any associated objects.

The Government of Canada declared that no known aircraft was involved and the source of the impact remains unknown to this day.

It is one of very few cases where government agency documents have formally declared an unidentified flying object was involved. Several military witnesses that were interviewed, including a RCN diver involved in the search, have claimed an alien spacecraft was responsible.

It was also claimed by several of the witnesses that units of the United States armed forces were involved in the search.

The case was also briefly investigated by the U.S. Condon Committee UFO study, which offered no explanation.
