Falcon Lake Incident
Something there or just hot air?

Flora is back with a deep dive into the fascinating events of the Falcon Lake incident! An amazing Canadian UFO case, the Falcon Lake incident is often regarded as one of the most investigated and strongest UFO cases in history. Stefan Michalak was out on a prospecting trip near Falcon Lake, Manitoba, when he witnesses 2 UFOs in the sky. When one landed not far from him, his curiosity led him to a close encounter that would forever change his life. David tackles the incident and asks tough questions in the search for the truth. What did Michalak see that day? What caused him to become so ill afterward? And what can be made of the evidence and investigations? Flora also invites Dr. Chris Cogswell from the Mad Scientist Podcast to help suss out some science. Join a fun ride into an incredible account and fascinating investigation on this episode of Blurry Photos!
