One September evening in 1845 near Cornwall, Ontario, a farmer notices brilliant dancing lights surrounding Marsh Point Farm. Soon more and more people witness the spectacular lights accompanied by strange sounds of clanging and explosion. Befuddled neighbours decide to keep an overnight watch but fail to solve the mystery. After a year, the bizarre manifestations slowly disappear without a trace. Despite interviewing numerous witnesses and scientists, no credible explanation is ever offered for the strange activities at Marsh Point Farm.
Could this possibly be a UFO landing?
First covered by the CBC's Rex Lambert in a radio broadcast on Aug. 24, 1962
