Over 50 years in the past, on the evening of 4 October, unusual lights appeared over the sky of a small Canadian fishing village.
Witnesses watched because the lights flashed after which dived in the direction of the dark waters off the coast of Nova Scotia.
Now, what some imagine to have been a UFO sighting has been commemorated by the Royal Canadian Mint.
The mint has launched a collector’s coin that tells the story of a “unique and mysterious event”.
The scene on the glow-in-the-dark coin depicts a particular second described by numerous eyewitnesses.
After seeing 4 unusual flashing lights within the offshore evening sky, they noticed an object 60-feet in size flying low, which dropped down at a 45 diploma angle.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), which had obtained quite a few calls reporting a aircraft crash within the harbour, together with native fishermen, tried to achieve the thing earlier than it sank.
Canada’s defence division later carried out an underwater search of the realm the place the thing was seen coming into the water, however didn’t find any proof of an object.
