RADCAT is a revitalized special project now being conducted jointly by NICAP & Project 1947 with the help and cooperation of the original compiler of RADCAT, Martin Shough, to create a comprehensive listing of radar cases with detailed documentation from all previous catalogues, including UFOCAT and original RADCAT.

Navy Men Report Radar Contact
June 30/July 1, 1950
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia


Don Ledger:
June 30/July 1, 1950; Royal Canadian Naval Air Station, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
11:15 p.m. On that night, two navy men were pulling duty on radar watch from dusk until dawn. The two reported a radar contact bearing 160 degrees at 5 miles [8.3 kilometers]. There was nothing unusual about the initial sighting except that the target remained in the same position for approximately 4 minutes before moving slowly out to sea to a range of 10 miles [16.6 kilometers]. At this point the target was observed to move quickly back inland whereupon radar contact was lost at 23:27 hours. But that wasn't the end of it.
