October 4 1967 - Shag Harbor, Nova Scotia
A short summary, click the link below for the full story:
A UFO, or orange lights in the sky, was witnessed by numerous people the night of Oct 4th 1967. They say these lights crashed into Shag Harbor. A light could be seen on the water shortly after the crash. By the time some local fisherman got to the area of the crash, the light was gone. Local officials & the Royal Canadian Mounted Police sent down divers thinking this could have been an airplane accident. Nothing was found.
Fast forward to 1993. The story gets picked up by Chris Styles a MUFON researcher. Styles was joined by Doug Ledger who also is with MUFON. What they uncover is truly amazing. Apparently the craft navigated about 30 miles south underwater to a place called 'Governors Point' close to a US sub tracking base.
This USO was picked up on sonar and navy vessels were sent to investigate. The ships were positioned directly over it. A couple of days went by and navy were thinking of starting a salvage operation to recover the craft. This is when a 2nd USO comes to the aid of 1st one and appears to repair it.
After about a week some of the monitoring vessels were dispatched to intercept an approaching Russian sub. At this time the 2 USO's made there way to the gulf of Maine. They were able to get away from the trailing navy vessels break the surface and fly away. Truly amazing.

"Dark Object" by Don Ledger and Chris Styles, Dell Publishing, ISBN: 0-440-23647-9
1952 UFO Events- 1952 was a good year for UFO/USO events and sitings
USO - Unidentified Submerged Objects These are the same as UFO's but can operate underwater as well as in the atmosphere or sky. There has been recent activity near Puerto Rico and the Bermuda Triangle. Some believe there are underwater bases in that area. The History Channel had a great program on these USO's.
The USS Franklin Delanore Roosevelt aircraft carrier was the first naval ship to carry nuclear weapons . For this reason, many say the USS FDR was also a magnet for USO sitings. With multiple sitings with multiple reliable eye witnesses, these cases become hard to debunk.
Sept 20 1952 Operation Mainbrace
A multinational force made up of US & British naval ships. USO approach the FDR and are witnessed by many people. Apparently a British ship had a close encounter as well.
Sept 20 1952 7:30pm
3 Danish officers participating in the multinational exercises observe a USO approach their ship. It hovers awhile then disappears. 24hrs later 6 British officers see them emerge from the water and head towards their ship
Oct 2 1963 - Radar Operator on the FDR Off the coast of Sardinia, radar operator Jordan noticed a blip on his radar screen. It moved across his screen at altitudes and faster then anything he had seen before. It approached the FDR slowed, then just disappeared. He was never able to tell if the craft went into the water or not.
Rumor has it that Dwight Eisenhower may have even been present on the FDR during at least one of these USO events.
Santa Catalina Channel, Ca
A large object was observed by several witnesses. This
object was also picked up on sonar. It was floating on the surface of
the Pacific ocean. Several smaller ufo's were released from this mother-ship
prior to its submerging. Sonar tracking had it heading south towards the
Santa Catalina Channel before disappearing.
|June 14th 1992
Santa Catalina Channel, Ca.
Over 200 craft were seen emerging from the Ocean. They
hovered for several seconds then flew off. Many witnesses filed reports.
Golfo Nuevo, 650 miles south of Buenos Aires.
Argentinean Navy tracked 2 USOs thinking they were United
States submarines. Eventually, the two items broke apart and flew out
to the water.
100 off the coast of Puerto Rico
Naval ships and submarines were conducting exercises
when one US sub began chasing a USO that they identified as traveling
above 150 knots, deepth was 20000 feet. Most submarines have a crush limit
of 7000 feet. This object was tracked for 4 days, at times reaching tremendous
November 11th 1972
The Norwegian Navy tracked an unidentified undersea object
in the Songefjord waters. Helicopters, ships and sub hunters were dispatched
to locate the object. On Nov 20th the USO exited the water and was described
as 'huge' and 'cigar shaped'. One of the navy ships fired on it and it
sank back down into the water. The navy's depth charges did nothing. They
planned to block the fjord but the uso disappeared.
