Research work is underway on another project exploring the Shag Harbour UFO incident of Oct. 4 1967, with a dive on the crash site on July 20 by retired IT professional David Cvet.

Two years in the works but delayed for weather related reasons numerous times, Cvet, who lives in Toronto and summers in the Digby area, said the purpose of the dive was two-fold and was successful on both counts.

First, Cvet wanted to gather intelligence on the water, the seabed and diving conditions in the waters known as the Shag Harbour Rip. He also wanted to try and locate the anomalous sonar readings obtained by the BIO research ship Navicula during a bottom survey of the area in 1988.

The expedition team, comprised of Cvet, diver and underwater photographer Lauren McGowan, local diver Freeland Reynolds and videographer Rick Davis were taken to the dive site aboard the fishing boat, The Receiver General, captained by Vincent Goreham.

With Reynolds and Davis remaining on board, Cvet and McGowan dove on the site on the low tide for minimal tidal movement, and to reduce the depth of the dive thereby maximizing the time spent exploring the bottom.

Cvet likened the water conditions to “pea soup,” with visibility limited to about two meters. During the 25 minutes spent exploring the bottom Cvet located two slight depressions on the ocean floor that were “inconsistent with the surrounding seabed.

“The lack of flora on the depression bottom was observed and thought unusual given the surrounding area was populated with flora and fauna,” writes Cvet in his notes chronicling the expedition.

“The dive was considered a success, as much data was garnered during the dive in terms of water, bottom and dive conditions, useful for planning future dive expeditions,” says Cvet.

“The discovery of the depressions, which may or may not play the part of the original sonar anomalies was a bonus, but, given only two were observed, the outcome remains inconclusive.”

Cvet hopes to do a second dive with additional equipment and instrumentation, sometime within the next year. Eventually Cvet is hoping his research will turn into a documentary.

“I think the Shag Harbour incident is one of those rare instances where it has not been commercialized,” said Cvet, adding himself as well as other researchers and writers on the subject have been trying to “do everything in a very creditable way. I think it’s good for the people of Shag Harbour that it’s being done very carefully with conservative methodology. Then the yahoos can’t say it’s all fake.”

Cvet, who teaches martial arts when he’s not exploring in the paranormal, will be one of the presenters at the 2009 UFO Festival and Symposium on Aug. 14 and 15.

Hosted by the Shag Harbour UFO Incident Society activities for the two day event will be held at the UFO Centre in Shag Harbour and the Barrington Area Lions Club.

UFO Algonquin Park

UFO Sighting Report - Canada
July 19th 2008 : Madawaska, Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario


Madawaska, Algonquin Provincial Park Ontario Large Sphere $0 Feet Away

Date: July 19, 2008
Time: 1:00 a.m.

Location of Sighting: Madawaska, Algonquin Provincial Park.
Number of witnesses: unknown
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Large Sphere, Red with pulses of orange and green.

Full Description of event/sighting: My boyfriend and I were in Madawaska for the World Electronic Music Festival. There were several thousand people attending this event. I am speaking of my personal account witnessing this object, however there were many other people who witnessed the event. There is a link to Youtube with a video of the event at the end of my personal account.

My boyfriend and I were returning from dropping a friend off at his hotel about 45 minutes down route 60. We were about 2 minutes from the turnoff to go through security check and back into the group camping area. It was just above the trees crossing the highway. Moving from the left to the right side of the highway. It was about 15 feet away from us, moving towards the area where the festival was. We then turned down the dirt path which lead to the security check area. As we approached the security to have the car searched we could see it coming over the trees towards the event. We pointed it out to the girl who searched our car and she mentioned that it had been seen several times the first night and that night as well. Apparently the police had seen it too and the girl who was performing the search was frighten of the object.

It passed over the car about 40 to 50 feet in the air above us. It was a very large glowing red sphere which pulsed orange and green and had a quality of light was very unusual and reminded me of a mirage. By that I mean that it seemed to be extremely hot. It was so close and so clear there is absolutely nothing that could explain it away as something mundane. It was clearly a sphere. Some people wait there whole lives to see something like this- Phenomenal.

Time: 1 for the green ball 2 for hovering objects

Number of witnesses: 3

Number of objects: 4

Shape of objects: Round

Weather Conditions: Clear

Description: So, I was watching televison around 11 on the sofa facing the bay window from the corner of my eye I cought a glimpse of a farly large green opject heading north to the earth. It wasnt travaling as fast as a shooting star it was a lot slower then that, also very bright green. So many thoughts went threw my head wondering what it could have been, a meteor came across my mind, but I had never seen something of that bright glowing green. So I jumped right out of my chair to grap my parents who were sitting with me at the time to catch a look, but of course I was to late to grap them. 10/15 mins later I was continued to watch the tv and watch outside as well around this time I was looking outside I noticed this very bright light in the north direction where I had seen the green ball. I just looked away thinking it was an airplane, but a couple mintues after I looked again to see that light was in the same spot almost hovering so this time I grap my mom to see this, while we were looking we noticed this object had vanished and appreared higher in the sky with a flashing red/orange light we had never seen anything like this, I was starting to ask myself questions like could this acually be what I was thinking, soon other lights appreared in the sky beside this flashing light hovering as well. So this point I grab my father to ask for his opion oh what he thought this could be his first responce was there helicopters, then they vanished and reapeared, his second responce was nothing. I observed these lights for another 30 mintutes by this time there was no further sightings. So days go by and Sunday March 9th around 10:30 I was watching some more telvision and looked out the window just to observe, the days before that I had seen no other lights, an then the lights appeared more north/west I have never seen anything so bizzare in my life, and every day since I have been observing the skys more often....well I found a video on you tube for everyone to check out ...the green ball that I saw on march 5th was a meteor so check it out it was pretty neat.

January 24th 2009 : Grimsby, Ontario

Grimsby, Ontario Four Witnesses Observe UFOs (Pictures)

Date: January 24, 2009
Time: Between 9:20 p.m. to 9:40 p.m.

Dear Brian, In the email body below is a little account of the anomaly myself and 3 other witnesses seen. It happened roughly between 9:20 PM to 9:40 PM. I don't have the exact time because wrist watches don't work on me, so I gave up on them and nobody else had the exact time, but when we walked back to the car it was 10:05pm and it was about a 10 minute walk we also stayed there for about 5 minutes after seeing it. The date was Saturday January 24th 2009. Location was in Grimsby, Ontario right bye the shores of Lake Ontario. It's in the Northwestern corner of the Lake and Between Hamilton and St.Catherine's, Ontario.The two other witnesses wish to remain unknown but can be contacted through telephone. The third witness was my young son.

In the pictures it is the same object but in two different colours. All I did was blown them up 3 separate times for each of the 2 pictures. I took a few more pictures but nothing came up, just the pictures I'm sending you.

Through the binoculars it had the 4 colours in pattern of green, white, yellow and red. But when we took the pictures it came out as solid white and solid red? The object moved a lot slower than a plane. To put it in perspective when the plane flew in when we first started to notice the object the plane was seen and gone in about 2 minutes if that. The movement of the object seemed to be coming in a capital L direction reversed from the St. Catherine's area toward Grimsby, then out toward the United States part of the Lake.

If you need to call or get in touch with the other witnesses, they said they will talk via telephone. After all this we joked with each other and went to believe it or not the Flying Saucer Restaurant for a bite to eat and warm up with coffee in Niagara Falls at 6768 Lundy's Lane. It was a cold typical Canadian night.

So that's all of it.

Parksville/Qualicum Vancouver Island B. C. Canada UFOs Missing Time And Marks On Witnesses Back


Date: Numerous (2009)
Time: Dust to evening.

Location of Sighting: Parksville/Qualicum.
Number of witnesses: 5
Number of Objects: Best night was over 30.
Shape of Objects: Ovular.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: Myself and two daughters aged 19 and 15 have seen several sighting together as well as individually. One of their friends was also over at out house during one of these episodes. We lived close to a mountain and on several occasions we have witnessed two smaller lights shoot out of a bigger light that was amber in color. The two descended to the top of the mountain and hovered briefly before dislodging something from below. Then one could very briefly see a flash from behind the ridge. They would do this 2 or 3 times before shooting straight up very quickly and disappearing into thin air! Another night at the same house there was suddenly 25 or more really bright lights that were about 10 times the brightness of any star and they would flash and twirl around. This went on for about 40 minutes before they all stopped at once.

We moved to a new house and I would occasionally see a couple of really fast moving objects in the sky. Then one night we grabbed a couple blankets and lay in the yard watching the sky. That night we saw 35-40 very fast moving objects that would vary their activities from shifting from really high rates of speed to hovering to quick descent and ascent patterns and just plain disappearing. This took less than 2 hours. Most recently we (my 19yr old and I) experienced a simultaneous loss of time when we both awoke abruptly at 1:30 in the afternoon! We are both early risers so to be in bed until the afternoon was very shocking to us.

My daughter said her back felt funny and when I looked at it there were at least 50 poke marks in her skin. These healed and were not detectable the same night. I had 2 punctures beneath each of my eyebrows that were red in the center and swollen around the edges. The next day my scalp seemed itchy and when I scratched i felt many small scabs scattered all over my scalp. However we both felt refreshed and full of positive energy and a definite feeling of well being followed us for days. I don't know for a fact if we were 'taken' as there is no memory of anything. I do know that the circumstances were highly unusual.

Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
