HOLISTIC APPROACH: This site is dedicated to promoting a holistic view of the Earth and the cosmos. This includes not only all life forms and systems on Earth, but
also the non-teresstrial life that exists throughout the cosmos. Developing a holistic view takes into account that the parts of any whole cannot exist and cannot be
understood except in their relation to the whole. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, as reflected in holistic medicine that attempts to treat both the mind
and the body, or holistic ecology that views humans and the environment a single system. As we move forward, the coming decades will bring unparalleled
challenges with regard to the continuing existence of the human race and all of life on Earth.  We hope you enjoy your visit!

Don Ledger is the author of three books, "Maritime UFO Files" which catalogues some 135 UFO sightings
in eastern Canada, "Swissair Nova Scotia and more recently Dark Object which chronicles the Shag
Harbour Incident of October 4, 1967. Don has been investigating the UFO phenomenon for 20 years and
presently concentrates on UFO sightings.

The Shag Harbour UFO Incident:

An extraordinary event in 1967 would practically put the small fishing village of Shag Harbor on the map.
Located at the southern tip of Nova Scotia, this rural community would be host to one of the best
documented UFO events of the past 40 years.
Named after the "shag," a bird of the cormorant family, the harbor was literally left off most maps of the
time, but that would be changed once and for all.

The tiny fishing community has always had its stories... stories of giant sea serpents, man-eating squid,
and ghost ships. The list of local color would see one more addition to its list: a story of a visit of a
mysterious flying craft of unknown origin. This craft would visit the waters of Shag Harbor, permanently
stamping the village's name in the public eye.

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. Coincidently, RCMP Constable
Ron Pound had already witnessed the strange lights himself as he drove down Highway 3 in route to Shag
Harbor. 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, Contable 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 AM.

The RCMP ran a traffic check with the Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifac, and NORAD radar at
Baccaro, Nova Scotia. They were told that there were no missing aircraft reported that evening, either
civilian, or military.

Shag Harbor MapThe following day, the Rescue Coordination Center filed a report with Canadian Forces
Headquarters in Ottawa. This report stated that something had hit the water in Shag Harbor, but the object
was of "unknown origin."

The HMCS Granby was ordered to the location, where divers searched the bottom of the ocean for several
days, but without positive results.

Soon, the story of the mysterious crash at Shag Harbor died as quickly as it had begun. That is, until 1993.
As the original story faded from papers and newscasts, several theories were put forward. One explanation
was that a Russian spacecraft had crashed, which would explain the presence of a Russian submarine in
the area. There was also the rumor of American involvement in the follow-up investigation, but there was
no official statement from the United States.

The Shag Harbor incident would have new life breathed into it through the efforts of MUFON investigator
Chris Styles. The case intrigued him so much that he decided to search for more details. Styles found the
names of many of the original witnesses through newspaper clippings, and was able to interview many of
them.

Styles was assisted by MUFON investigator Doug Ledger. These two men would uncover some extremely
compelling evidence through their interviews. They discovered that when the divers of the Granby finished
their work, the case was not over, after all.

The divers, along with other witnesses related these events: The object that dove into the waters of the
harbor had soon left the Shag area, traveling underwater for about 25 miles to a place called Government
Point, which was near a submarine detection base. The object was spotted on sonar there, and Naval
vessels were positioned over it. After a couple of days, the military was planning a salvage operation, when
a second UFO joined the first. Common belief at the time was that the second craft had arrived to render
aid to the first.

At this time, the Navy decided to wait and watch. After about a week of monitoring the two UFOs, some of
the vessels were called to investigate a Russian submarine which had entered Canadian waters. At this
point, the two underwater craft made their move. They made their way to the Gulf of Maine, and putting
distance between themselves and the chasing Navy boats, they broke the surface, and shot away into the
skies.

These extraordinary events were corroborated by many witnesses, both civilian and military. Unfortunately,
the reports were given "off the record." Ex-military personnel feared the loss of their pensions, and civilian
witnesses feared ridicule, and their privacy being invaded. The unusual events of Shag Harbor command
an important place in the study of UFOs. There is little doubt that something "unknown" crashed into the
waters of Shag Harbor on October 4, 1967.
