On August 26, 1976, four men, Charlie Foltz, Chuck Rak, and twin brothers Jim and Jack Weiner, all friends who met at the Massachusetts College of Art, decided to go on a camping and fishing trip up in the Allagash Wilderness in northern Maine, where Chuck had canoed the waterway on a previous trip in the summer of 1975.
The evening started out with the men building a large bonfire on the shore. They expected to be out fishing for several hours and built the fire to last so they could easily find their campsite in the dark. The four loaded a single canoe with their fishing equipment, and headed out onto the lake. They were out about a quarter-mile and had been fishing for 15 to 20 minutes, but weren't having much luck. Then suddenly, Chuck saw something coming up over the trees, and draw everyone else's attention. The men had seen a UFO on a previous night and were even more excited to see a bright pulsating light about 150 to 200 yards away. Jim Weiner has described the object as a bright, round, yellow/white light, that hovered silently above the treetops.
Charlie decided to attempt to try to signal the object with a flashlight they had brought. He flashed three short, three long, and again three short flashes, and immediately, the object seemed to take notice, and came towards them. They became frightened and frantically rowed for the bank. As they paddled as fast as they could, a hollow light came from the object, engulfing the men and their canoe. The next thing the men knew, they were standing on the bank again.
