What's New - About Me

This is where you'll find the latest news about me and my accomplishments. You'll also find out about some of my future projects as things develop.


On October 18, 2013, I found out that I had been mentioned in a new book entitled SPOOKY SUDBURY which was recently published by Dundurn Publishing, Toronto. Needless to say, I went to COLES in the New Sudbury Center and purchased my own copy. My deepest thanks go out to both authors, Mark Leslie and Jenny Jelen for also mentioning my website, NOUFORS (Northern Ontario UFO Research and Study).

On page 131, Jenny writes:

"The skeptics, however, are far out-numbered by the ufologists (people who are so interested in the subject that they have created books, websites, and groups dedicated to the study and collection of reported cases).

One such resource, championed by Michel Deschamps, called the Northern Ontario UFO Research & Study (NOUFORS) is dedicated to eyewitnesses, both past and present, and contains a plethora of documented cases of UFO sightings.

In an August 6, 1999, article in the Northern Life, Michel Deschamps, a long-time UFO watcher, believes that Sudbury is a veritable hotspot for otherworldly visitors.

'I think they're keeping a steady eye on the mining activity here.' Deschamps says that it is the consensus of Internet watchers that alien interest in Sudbury is both long-standing and based on our mining history. Perhaps there is something in the high frequency of nickel deposits in our region that is attracting these visitors."

Then, on page 234, she wrote the following:

Northern Ontario UFO Research & Study (NOUFORS)

From the website:

"Since 2007, Michel M. Deschamps has worked on creating a website originally based on the research performed using the newspaper archive at Laurentian University. NOUFORS has expanded to include a wide range of ufological information gathered from international sources - everything from Sightings made by Astronauts and Police officers to Physical Trace Evidence left behind by landed objects of unknown origin. Deschamps presents the hard facts to the best of his abilities, and encourages the reader to look at the material with an open mind, and perhaps learn something new and fascinating, along the way.

Deschamps continues to inform the public about UFOs and Flying Saucers by lecturing on the subject and articles he has written which have appeared in The Canadian Ufologist, a Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Ontario newsletter. His expertise lies in researching Northern Ontario newspaper archives for UFO reports and UFO-related information. Apart from those retrieved from the Sudbury Star, both he and his colleague Todd Fraser have located hundreds of news clippings within the pages of the Sault Star, the Timmins Daily Press, the Kirkland Lake Northern Daily News, and the North Bay Nugget.

Since July 1974, Deschamps has had just under thirty separate UFO sightings, including two captured on video and he has appeared on numerous radio and television programs including Midday Q, In The North, MCYV Today, Volt (TFO) and The Camilla Scott Show (CTV).

Deschamps' website contains an extensive list of articles, audio, and video clips from his appearances and various eyewitness testimony, is dedicated to all those eyewitnesses,past and present, who dared to speak out but were never heard."

On Wednesday, June 13, 2012, I was interviewed by Christine Frances on a online show called Asked Your Angels. We spoke for two hours and fifteen minutes, making it the longest phone interview I've ever done. To watch and listen to the interview, please click Here.

My own religious views or beliefs have been altered because of my personal involvement with UFO research. And perhaps it is time that I share with the readers all the changes that my Faith has gone through since the very beginning of my quest for the truth regarding Unidentified Flying Objects and Flying Saucers. Click here to know more on how this has affected me and my personal belief system.

I've recently begun work on a page that contains UFO sightings in the form of drawings that I collected from several UFO books during my High School years. Simply go here to view the information that I've accumulated over a long period of time.

On Wednesday, November 2, 2011, I did a presentation at Thorneloe University for the third year in a row, and it went very well. In my presentation, I included some new cases and other UFO-related information. The students had execellent questions for me and I tried to answer them as best as I could. I'm looking forward to doing this again, next November.

In early April 2011, I purchased an item off Ebay after receiving an e-mail from a friend which contained a link to a Halloween Shop in North Carolina.

Roswell, Me and Al-ien

On November 4th, 2010, I was a guest lecturer at Thorneloe University, speaking about UFOs and related matters to a class of approximately 90 students. The course is entitled "Dimensions of the Paranormal". This was my second appearance in that classroom and I've been asked to come again, next year.

The Toronto Sun - November 1, 2010

News Flash! A biographical documentary entitled UFO MAN is being produced by Matthew Fish, formerly of Music and Film in Motion, which is based here in Sudbury.

The film is an in-depth look at my life, focusing on all things that have made me become the person I am today.

Although it was hoped that the project was going to be completed in time for Cinefest 2010, the film won't be ready for a while yet. Additional shooting for the documentary may be necessary for the completion of this project. Stay tuned! :)

Replica Roswell I-Beam designed by the Marcel family - LIMITED

I-beam replica and Jesse Marcel Jr.

On Wednesday, February 10, 2010, I received an interesting parcel in the mail. I recently purchased a replica of the I-beam that Jesse Marcel Jr. remembers handling when he was eleven years old, way back in 1947. In early July of that year, his father, Jesse Marcel Sr., Intelligence officer of the 509th Bomb Wing at the Roswell, New Mexico air base, brought in some pieces of wreckage purported to be the remnants of a crashed flying saucer found on a ranch, seventy-five miles northwest of Roswell.

On one side of the I-beam are purple-colored symbols representing "something that means something", as Jesse Marcel Sr. stated during a 1978 television interview.

On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009, I was a guest lecturer at Thorneloe University in a class entitled "Dimensions of the Paranormal". I gave a Powerpoint presentation in front of 50 - 60 students which consisted of mostly young women and six guys. It was a lot of fun and the feedback was real good!

July 2009 is UFO month! Myself and Brent Holland, host of CKLU's NIGHT FRIGHT will interview four Canadian researchers in respect to the UFO phenomenon: Don Ledger, Stanton T. Friedman, Chris Rutkowski and Chris Reid.

UFO Lecture - November 25, 1995
Mine Mill Hall

On Location at the former CFS Falconbridge Radar Base

After I had witnessed a UFO sighting near there on October 9, 1990, I would do several treks up the hill and visit the site of the old radar base.

The section of the building that is right behind my head measured exactly 40 feet by 40 feet...which is my estimate of the size of the object I saw that evening, so many years ago.

Here I am, in 1996, standing in front of the now non-existing
Canadian Forces Station Falconbridge Radar Base.

Todd Fraser, my friend and research colleague, points at the
CFS Falconbridge Radar Base while holding a sign that says:
