The Falcon Lake Incident

One of the most famous UFO encounters in Canada occurred at Falcon Lake in Manitoba.

In 1967, Stefan Michalak was out prospecting when he said he saw two objects in the night sky.

He claimed that he was able to get close to one of these ships that had landed before it took off again, leaving him with burn marks and a condition similar to radiation poisoning.

Shag Harbour Sighting

The very same year of the Falcon Lake incident, Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia had its own run-in with an unidentified object.

Five witnesses said they saw several bright lights flash and move in the sky before seeming to dive into the water, leaving behind nothing but a bright yellow foam.

Close Call Near Gander

In 1951, a United States aircraft was heading to Gander for refuelling when it reportedly had a close encounter with something unexplainable.

As was claimed by members of the crew, they spotted an object at least 300 feet in diameter that at one point was on a trajectory straight toward them, and was moving at unfathomable speeds. Whatever it may have been, it eventually disappeared over the horizon.

The Prince George Lights

In 1969, the same year that humankind would first set foot on the moon, the residents of Prince George, British Columbia had an out-of-this-world experience of their own.

Several people reported seeing a sphere floating in the sky and radiating an orange and yellow light. The object then appeared to ascend from 2,000 to 10,000 feet in the air.

Sighting Over Montreal

A woman was swimming in the rooftop pool of a Montreal hotel in November 1990. When she looked into the sky, she saw a massive floating object, which was also seen by several other witnesses.

What makes this particular sighting so special is just how many people reported seeing the UFO, which made its appearance above a major Canadian city.

Charlie Red Star

This particular UFO was spotted by so many different people in 1975, that it was actually given a nickname.

The first sighting of Charlie Red Star was by Bob and Elaine Diemert, who saw an object in the sky emitting a bright red light.

It continued to appear every night for several more months, prompting more people to take part in UFO-watching parties.

Triangular object

Imagine if you were enjoying a nice, peaceful camping trip, only to have it interrupted by a UFO.

That's what apparently happened to 10 witnesses just outside of Montreal, who reported in 2017 that they witnessed a triangle-shaped object floating in the sky right above their heads. It apparently flashed a red light before eventually moving on.
