Cousteau Family Members to Investigate Nova Scotia’s Shag Harbour UFO Incident

• Fifty years ago, around 11 pm on a clear and moonless night of October 4, 1967, residents of Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia saw the string of flashing lights fall from the sky and crash into the nearby waters. Witnesses included three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers, scores of fishermen, and airline pilots flying along the province’s southwest coast. But a series of searches turned up nothing. No wreckage. No bodies. No clues. Thus the Shag Harbour incident became Canada’s best-documented and most intriguing UFO sighting.
• Now, Celine Cousteau and Fabian Cousteau, grandchildren of the famed undersea explorer, Jacques Cousteau, have announced their intention to investigate the infamous UFO Incident this summer, and will attend this year’s Shag Harbour UFO Conference to be filmed as part of the Cousteau’s documentary series.
A nearly 51-year-old mystery will be getting a fresh set of eyes in August, and they’ll belong to one of the world’s most famous families in ocean exploration.
Celine Cousteau and Fabian Cousteau, grandchildren of Jacques Cousteau, are set to visit Shag Harbour, N.S., to investigate the infamous Shag Harbour UFO Incident next month.
The organization that promotes and celebrates the mystery made the announcement on their Facebook page.
The Shag Harbour Incident
It was around 11 p.m. on the night of Oct. 4, 1967, when the first accounts of an unusual, lit-up object crashing into the water off of Shag Harbour, N.S., first began filtering through the community.
Among those who saw the string of flashing lights on that clear, moonless night were three RCMP officers, scores of fishermen and airline pilots flying along the province’s southwest coast.
But a series of searches turned up nothing. No wreckage. No bodies. No clues as to what really happened that night nearly 51 years ago.
A Halifax-area man later uncovered a trove of government and police records that would make the Shag Harbour incident Canada’s best-documented and most intriguing UFO sighting.
