Subject: NASA Booster In Rain Of Fire Off Nova Scotia

Something happened over Nova Scotia or the eastern seaboard the
evening of Dec. 10-07. First reports were that a spy
satellite/booster launched by NASA failed and burnt up upon re-
entry into the atmosphere. The fact that it launched into a
northerly direction supports the spy-satellite scenario.

The Rescue Co-Ordination Center [RCC] in Halifax first confirmed
this report then recinded it. I learned that they first thought
the rocket had completely failed but then changed that to just
the booster burning up as it came back in. They received many
calls about glowing stuff in the sky, flares and burning type
debris as far west as Ontario with a photo of the thing.

I was first made aware of this by the Coast Guard earlier this
morning. I contacted the tower at Stanfield Halifax
International Airport and was told by a tower controller that -
quote - "I'm not allowed to talk about it." exact words
[confirmed twice] and was referred to Nav Canada's Media
Relations Center in Montreal. I contacted same and got a
recorded message. I'm guessing that since there is a spy
satellite involved that Nav Canada has been advised to keep the
hype down.

I left my cell phone number and my home number but then had to
do a CBC interview in Bridgewater on the event - the UFO slant,
including Shag Harbour - which should air on the 6 PM news
locally and might get picked up on the National. I was
interviewed outside for about twenty minutes and as it turned
out I got some 30 seconds about the Shag Harbour Incident.

When I arrived back home and there was a message from Nav
Canada. Recalled same and I am now waiting for reply but since
they close there at 4PM I doubt if I'll hear back. It's 4:02PM
their time. The normal NASA news releases are not saying
anything about it.

UPDATE: Coast guard contact and radio reports has NASA
contacting authorities here in Canada [RCC Halifax]but not the
RCMP, to advise that indeed a booster failed and broke up and
pieces of that it hit the water off Yarmouth and in a line in a
northeasterly track up the Bay of fundy. No reports of impact on
the mainland. Rescue units, fire departments and Emergencey
Response Units were on standby. It was first thought that an
airplane might have crashed. The RCMP were flodded with calls
from both New Brunswick and Soutwestern Nova Scotia. Close call.

The witnesses were not reporting UFOs but were a bit frightened
by the closeness of the event to their shoreline in South West
Nova Scotia. The incoming reports were about either a meteor
breaking up or perhaps an airplane exploding and crashing-hence
the Shag Harbour angle.

Cudos to the witnesses who are so often maligned. Even a 16 year
old male who saw the thing coming down reported on the CBC that
he thought it was a meteor or worse perhaps an airplane
