When they reappeared, there were only 4 and seemed to be at a 35 degree angle. The lights began to descend toward the horizon, changing in color from red to yellow and then to orange. The lights moved in the direction of Tusket Island to the NW and then vanished. The whole sighting lasted maybe 15 minutes.
Cameron said he spotted the lights again an hour later. This time they appeared to be a string of yellow lights moving “faster than any plane,” moving from the SW to the NE. (However, in Dark Object, it was stated that Cameron saw two objects speeding rapidly over the Gulf of Maine toward the United States.) Total time of the two sightings was maybe 25 minutes.
Lockland Cameron thought the RCMP might be interested because the lights at first appeared so close to the water, and he thought they might have emerged from it. He immediately called the RCMP, who came to the house and took statements from the family. The RCMP report added that the Mounties had called the RCAF at the nearby Baccaro radar station. They were told that radar was negative and there were no known operations in the area. The RCMP recommended that government personnel further interview witnesses to both the Oct. 4 and Oct. 11 sightings in the area. (D.O., pp. 157-158, Appendix, p. 166,)
Ledger and Styles speculate that maybe the UFO or UFOs spotted by the Cameron family was/were the same one/ones that entered the water barely half a mile away a week earlier. After the naval recovery flotilla departed, it/they were able to slip away and departed the same way they came.
Here is another report of another object witnessed by civilians and apparently backed by military chatter and salvage diver pictures:
She related a story told to her by her father, Wayne Nickerson, when she was 10. At that time, the Nickersons lived in Pubnico, about 20 miles NW of Shag Harbour. After he had read the Halifax Chronicle-Herald Oct. 7 story on the Shag Harbour crash, Nickerson told his daughter about seeing 2 moon-like lights on the night of Oct. 4. He had been traveling west from Shag Harbour to Woods Harbour when he spotted the 2 lights. He stopped the car to observe. They remained fixed in place for a few seconds, then one "moon" dropped downward, landed gently on the sound, and drifted silently. Ms. Fountain said her father was not one to make up stories. He spoke of the incident only one more time, shortly before his death in 1991. (DO, pp. 159-160)
The authors noted that on the night of Oct. 4, there was only a new moon. They speculated that perhaps the second object Nickerson saw in the sky after the first plunged into the sound was the same object seen by Norm Smith and his father a number of minutes after Laurie Wickens had seen an object go down behind the trees. Smith had seen the lights descending toward Shag Harbour for the second time after being dropped off at home by Dave Kendricks. Smith ran to get his father. They hurried to their car to investigate and narrowly avoided crashing into one of the RCMP police cruisers as it came racing by. At the time, Laurie Wickens was already keeping an eye on the object he had seen out in the sound. This begs the question how Wickens could already have seen a light floating on the water while the Smith's saw one still in the air. (DO, pp. 160-161)
Acting on a tip from UFO investigator Steve MacLean, the authors also called a military officer. "Leo" was one of the Royal Canadian Air Force radio officers that night. Leo said there was much excitement on the military channels. He added there were two objects that went into the water that night. The divers took all sorts of pictures. Leo refused to comment beyond this, saying he was abiding by a security oath. (DO, pp. 161-162)

The Search Intensifies
About an hour after the crash a Navy Coast Guard vessel designated “101” arrived at the scene. At around 4:00 AM on October 5th the search, still only consisting of the RCMP and a Coast Guard Cutter, was called off until light. On October 8th seven Navy divers from the HMCS Granby searched until sundown apparently not finding anything, although some witness reports state that the divers wee seen to be bringing up some type of “aluminum colored material”, this has not been confirmed however. On October 9th the search was called off and nothing was officially found, not a trace reportedly. So officially in the search we have multiple personal fishing boats in the search, a Coast Guard Cutter, and a dive team. Apparently this does not end here however, as mentioned above a decent sized fleet of US and Canadian Naval ships were scouring a nearby harbor for a week.
New information came to light after this whole ordeal was officially over. The new information suggested that a massive search at Shelburne Harbor (30 miles NE of Shag), near Government Point was conducted by a joint US/Canada search team. According to reported inside information NORAD had tracked the object since it entered Earths atmosphere and made half an orbit around Siberia and then to the Shag Harbor area. Apparently the military was aware that the object had went into the water, then proceeded NE to around Cape Sable Island. The object finally came to rest around Shelburne Harbor. It is reported it came to rest over a magnetic detection anomaly grid used to detect subs.

The picture above is the actual photo of an atomic barge that was “rerouted to the bay for emergency repairs” in Shelburne on October 6th, insider witnesses claim that this was a cover for the search effort. Here is some more information on the many other major ships called in and reported in the area:
It is further reported that about 6 or 7 Canadian and American ships were anchored over the object and that another object apparently had been observed to come to the aid of the first object. Reportedly Hydrophones were used to study the objects and many pictures were taken. Of course none of these have ever been seen, at least in the public domain. Further information was given in the spring of 1994 by yet another claimed insider. This ‘whistleblower’ claimed to have been part of the Canadian Air Force Aircraft Identification Team. He was told that they were anchored over an intruding Russian sub. Apparently all recovered material was kept on the lower levels and all the divers were constantly being told to keep quiet about what they were recovering. One diver did talk reportedly and plainly stated that whatever they were bringing up and investigating was “not Russian and not from Moscow”. It has also been stated that the divers in Shag Harbor knew that the object had already gone and they were doing nothing more than a cover-op. Here is another interesting excerpt:
Styles was already well-aware of the diver "Harry," having spoken to him before in 1993. In fact, Harry was the first witness to tip off Styles to the Shelburne Harbour search. Harry had been tracked down through the assistance of an acquaintance of his father's, an instructor with the Fleet Diving Unit, Guy Fenn. Fenn was able to get the names of the divers involved. One was dying, two refused to talk, but "Harry" was initially much more cooperative. Before he stopped talking, Harry, in a personal interview, told Styles and friend Bob MacDonald, assisting Styles, that the ships were there for over a week. They had located the object using sonar and soundings. The divers had gone down in pairs and brought up debris, including big chunks of some kind of solid, foam-like material. Some of it was decomposing while they were bringing it up. Harry also reluctantly told them that there was no doubt that the object wasn't anything from here.
In a last phone conversation, Harry refused to talk further and told Styles he would never get the full Shelburne story. When Styles suggested that maybe what he saw was wrongly identified as a UFO, Harry angrily responded, "I don't know what it was down there and I don't know where it came from. But it didn't come from this planet." (DO, pp. 67-71)
