Go Back Report # 274


Lake Searched for Object

Three Coast Guard boats scoured Lake Erie waters near Dunkirk, New York, on the 3rd of December 1963, in search of what several observers reported was a glowing object which passed through the sky and then plunged into the lake on the night of 2 December. Some observers felt the object looked like an airplane explosion; others thought it looked like a meteor. There were no reports of missing planes or distress calls from same, and the Coast Guard, after completing their search, announced that they had not sighted any plane or unusual object in the water.
