Three fishermen look up at the night sky, where black light technology adds a glow to the mysterious craft and its flashing lights as the object crashes into the Gulf of Maine. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. 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 kilometre from the shore. Officials contacted the Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifax to find out if an aircraft had gone missingall 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? 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. Commercial pilots were the first to spot mysterious lights in the evening sky on October 4, 1967, as they approached Yarmouth, N. Sightings were also reported in Halifax. Seven witnesses (including Laurie Wickens) notified the RCMP about strange flashing lights or a possible plane crash. In fact, it was the authorities not the witnesses who first referred to the case as a UFO incident. Established in 2006, the Shag Harbour Incident Society is dedicated to chronicling the 1967 encounter. Visitors to the interpretive centre in Shag Harbour, N.
