The Falcon Lake Incident occurred on May 20, 1967.
Stephen Michalak of Winnipeg, was prospecting near Falcon Lake, Manitoba, (Canada) when he encountered two UFOs, one of which landed on a large, flat rock about 160 feet away from him. After having approached the object and looked inside, the object moved, and something like an exhaust vent was now in front of him. A blast of hot gas shot from these holes onto his chest, setting his shirt and undershirt on fire and causing him severe pain, and leaving burn marks in the shape of a grid.
Michalak of Winnipeg had taken a short vacation in the Whiteshell Provincial Park.He had been told that there were veins of quartz to be found near Falcon Lake. He was up early on May 19 and around 9:00 am he had found a vein of the precious material.Shortly after 12:00 p.m. he heard a noise similar to geese’s grunts. When he looked up, he spotted two cigar-shaped objects, which were red and brilliant as fire.
He noticed that the more they approached the more oval they became. One of the objects stopped on the air, while the other landed on a big rock 160 feet away from Michalak.
After some moments, the object floating above changed its color to grey and flew away disappearing through the clouds. The landed object also changed to grey and then to incandescent stainless steel.
Half an hour passed, and Michalak still was observing the spaceship.Suddenly, a door opened and he could see that the interior of the UFO was very illuminated. Michalak approached some meters and heard some voices coming from inside the ship. Believing that the object was an experimental American flying object, he tried to make a contact in English. As no answers were given, he tried other languages in vain. Nervous, he walked to the open door, and saw a panel and some lights inside the ship. He did not see anybody, so he waited.
Suddenly, the door closed. Despite the surprise, he discovered a colorful glass around the UFO. It was very well-conserved, with no cracks. He attempted to touch it, but his glove simply melted, the heat hurting his hand through the glove’s protection.
Quietly, a metallic box full of holes got off the UFO, what seemed to be a grid-like exhaust vent. A steamy explosion occurred, and some kind of gas was expelled in his direction.Immediately, his clothes started to burn. As the UFO flew after the other one, Michalak was left behind desperately trying to extinguish the fire.
By late June of 1967, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) had taken an interest in Michalek’s claims.
By June 26th, Michalek had located the site and recovered personal belongings he had left there. The RCMP obtained soil samples from the location, which they tested for radioactivity. The tests were positive. The Department of National Defence identifies the Falcon Lake case as ‘unsolved’.
