Old Mystery Ripples Through UFO Circles

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (Canadian Press)--A strange object that crashed
into waters off Nova Scotia 31 years ago is making a splash in UFO
circles.

The story has been featured in segments on two TV shows--an Arts and
Entertainment special on UFOs, and *Sightings*, a now-cancelled American
series about the paranormal--and generated a book making the rounds at
New York publishing houses.

"Whatever it was, I don't know if we're ever going to be able to say with
absolute certainty," says researcher Chris Styles, who co-wrote the book.

"If nothing else it's a great mystery."

Styles, of Dartmouth, N.S., has spent the last five years trying to find
out what really happened on Oct. 4, 1967--the night several people from
Halifax to Shag Harbour, N.S., a town more than 150 kilometres west,
claim they saw an alien spaceship.

According to their stories, an 18-metre craft hovered over Shag Harbour,
tilted on a 45-degree angle and plowed into the water with a bright
flash and explosive roar, says Styles.

Three RCMP officers arrived at the site to find a glowing, pale yellow
object floating on the surface a kilometre from shore, he says.

By the time fishing boats and a coast guard vessel arrived, the object
had sunk, says Styles, adding his grandfather is among the witness
accounts.

Styles, who was 12 at the time, says as the strange object was spotted at
Shag Harbour, he saw an orange sphere hover over shipyards in Dartmouth.

The two sightings made headlines, then faded from the news after divers
failed to find any trace of the fallen object.

But Styles says he has uncovered government documents that reveal a
search effort in which authorities refer to the craft as an unidentified
flying object.

Styles says government insiders reveal an even stranger tale in which
two submerged objects were seen days later.

They suspect the Shag Harbour object travelled underwater up the coast
and met another craft that carried out underwater repairs, says Styles.
