In 1967, an amateur geologist and Manitoba resident, Stan Michalak, was exploring the woods of Falcon Lake when he noticed two large cigar-shaped craft flying toward his direction. One landed and turned into more of a disc shape. Michalak approached the mystery craft and reached out to touch it with his gloves, which then started to melt. The craft then took off, pushing Michalak backward and burning him. He then retreated, but preceded to experience "nausea, weight loss, diarrhea, and blackouts." He also smelt of "sulphur and burnt motor" for awhile after the UFO sighting.
Fortunately, Michalak immediately drew a picture of the UFO and shared his story with the world, speaking openly and consistently to reporters and other media about the encounter.
The 1967 Falcon Lake incident is making headlines again in 2018 because the unforgettable case is now being commemorated in a new 1 oz., glow-in-the-dark silver $20 Canadian coin. Although the incredible $20 coin costs an incredible $129.95 CAD, it has already sold out. Of course it is still available online elsewhere for those willing to pay a lot more for the stylish and historic coin.
Michalak and many who have investigated the case presume the Falcon Lake UFO to be top secret military craft and not necessarily extraterrestrial, but as always, you be the judge!
What is interesting is this case is similar to the 1980 Cash-Landrum UFO incident of Texas, where witnesses approached a diamond-shaped craft that emitted flames. They experienced burns and symptoms of radiation poisoning similar to what Michalak experienced after his encounter...
What do you think of the amazing Falcon Lake incident and the coin that was made to commemorate it? Would you buy it?
