Located at 5615 Hwy # 3 Shag Harbour along the beautiful lighthouse route. On October 4th, 1967 local residents Laurie Wickens, Norman Smith and David Kendrick sighted an object in the sky,which later crashed into the Shag Harbour "sound." Laurie contacted the R.C.M.P. who quickly joined a group at the moss plant(today known as Ocean's Alive Seafood). The group watched as the object hit the water. The Canadian Coast Guard and local fishermen searched for wreckage to only find a yellow foam. This story has gone down in history as a UFO mystery. It has been used in several tv documentaries. The book "Dark Object" by Don Ledger and Chris Styles tells the story. Our friendly attendants will be more than happy to show you the memorabilia and retell you the story.
Maybe you have a story for us. Come and share the mystery this summer.
