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.

Lights Observed / Tracked On Radar
Aug. 23, 1967
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Fran Ridge:
Aug. 23, 1967; Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
9:45 p.m. EDT (8:45 p.m. EDT). A commercial pilot saw a series of white lights that flashed on and off at 1-2 second intervals. Ground radar showed a target at the approximate location of the lights, and said that the object was in the sky and lower than 50,000 feet. The pilot lost sight of the lights after about a minute, but Halifax radar tracked the objects as they moved from 36 to 16 miles from the aircraft and the blips were still on radar after the aircraft continued on its way. The object also was reported by a separate ground witness. (Letter from witness, 8/31/67, NICAP files; U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 2, Oct. 1967, p. 1; Weinstein, 1999, p. 36, from Flammonde, 1976.)
