52 Years Later, the Kecksburg, PA UFO Incident Is Still Remembered By Many

 

52 Years Later, the Kecksburg, PA UFO Incident Is Still Remembered By Many

From Researcher: Stan Gordon

 December 9, 1965, is a date that many area residents still remember. It was on that afternoon just as it was getting dark in the area that multitudes of witnesses observed a brilliant fiery object in the sky. Soon after the object passed over the greater Pittsburgh area, radio and TV stations were breaking the news of the sighting of the mysterious object in the sky. Information was later reported that the object had fallen into a wooded area near the Mount Pleasant Township community of Kecksburg in Westmoreland County.

During the evening, hundreds of curious people found their way to the rural roads around Kecksburg to try to see the object that had reportedly fallen. Many reporters from area newspapers, radio and TV also went to Kecksburg to determine what had occurred. The reporters, local residents, and the many curiosity seekers that arrived in the area, were met at the scene by state police, volunteer firemen, and the military.

That evening roads around the reported landing site were cordoned off, and the woods where the object was said to have fallen, were off limits to those who wanted to try to get closer look. What wasn’t known at the time was that some people had gone down into the woods soon after the object fell and discovered the metallic acorn shaped object with odd symbols on it, semi-buried in the ground.

Many people in that area did see a military flatbed tractor trailer truck carrying an object covered with a tarp leave the area late that night at a high rate of speed. I learned years later from independent sources that the object was taken initially to Lockbourne Air Force Base near Columbus, Ohio. After a short stayover, the truck and its cargo continued onto Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

There are numerous witnesses who were involved in this incident that are still living today. Unfortunately, many others have passed away, and others are in poor health. On occasion even in the last few years, some area residents have approached me and shared with me their personal experiences with the Kecksburg incident. Some of these people still are able to recall with specific details the events that occurred that day many years ago.

Very recently a man attending a local public event near Pittsburgh noticed a woman wearing a Kecksburg V.F.D. shirt. The fellow approached that individual and asked if she knew anything about the Kecksburg UFO incident. The man was a witness to seeing the object in the sky that day in 1965, and wanted to know more about it. That woman gave him information on how to contact me.

The fellow told me that he had always been interested in the case since as a youngster he saw the object that afternoon pass over his farm not far from Pittsburgh. He was able to provide a detailed account of what had occurred that day as he happened to look up into the sky while playing. The object did not appear to be that high in the sky and was descending as it was moving. He watched the object until it moved out of sight. He said what impressed him about the object was that, “It was moving slowly, not going fast at all, like gliding.”

He went inside and told his family what he had seen. That evening they watched the local news on their black and white TV and there was a news report from the Kecksburg area concerning information that the object that was seen by many people had reportedly fallen near there. The fellow recalled seeing film footage that showed a lot of people walking around, armed personnel, and individuals putting up tape at a location to apparently keep people out.

Another individual who was on the scene at Kecksburg in 1965, and remembers the events of that night, is Robert Gatty, who was a reporter for the Greensburg Tribune-Review at the time. Gatty recently wrote about his experience that night on his blog: https://www.notfakenews.biz/single-post/2017/10/14/The-Story-of-the-Century-to-Come-to-Life

Since the occurrence, there have been numerous theories proposed as to what that object was that fell near Kecksburg in 1965. Hopefully someday we will have the evidence to confirm what that object really was that fell in Pennsylvania so many years ago and is still discussed and debated today.

If you have any information on the Kecksburg case that you would like to share, please send me an email at: paufo@comcast.net.

Mini-UFO Hovers Near Window-Ligonier PA area- September 20, 2017

Mini-UFO Hovers Near Window-Ligonier PA area

This incident occurred on September 20, 2017, in a rural location in the Ligonier area, not far from the Chestnut Ridge. The witness was in bed when she noticed a light outside the window during the early morning hours. There were no lights in that area of the property. She got up and went to the window. Suspended in the air was an illuminated object about 6-7 feet from the window, and about 8-9 feet above the ground. The object was hovering and moved around a little from left to right.

The object was small and about the diameter of a silver dollar. The color of the object was described as yellowish and pale green. The light was steady, but did not glow brightly. It did not emit any light that reflected on the surrounding area. The object was not completely round, but appeared as a flattened circle and more egg shaped. On the left side there was a small section missing (a dark spot) kind of like a wedge of a pie where no light was emitted from. No sound was heard.

Stan was one of the speakers at the first Cryptidcon Conference held in Kentucky. It was a great event where many well-known investigators of strange creatures and other phenomena, as well as the public had a chance to meet and talk about these strange ongoing incidents.

I had the chance to meet with some of these nice folks including two members of the cast from the TV show “Finding Bigfoot.” In the photo: (left) James “Bobo” Fay, with Stan (center) and Cliff Barackman.

Police Officer Encounters Strange Creature with Glowing Head in Pennsylvania- Late August, 2017

Police Officer Encounters Strange Creature with Glowing Head in Pennsylvania- Late August, 2017

Sketch Used With Permission of the Witness

 

On an evening in late August, 2017, a police officer riding down a road in a wooded location in a southwestern section of Westmoreland County, PA saw something that startled him. Ahead of him on the side of the road, the officer observed what appeared to be a ball of very dull white light low to the ground. He was familiar with the area and had never noticed any type of lighting in that location. As he moved closer and was about 50 yards from the round light, it suddenly rose up or stood up from the ground.

It was then that the witness observed something that he couldn’t process. The officer told me, “it was the weirdest thing I have ever seen.” The ball of light was actually the head of a very strange being that looked to be about 6 feet tall or larger. It was tall and almost skeleton thin. The officer was of the opinion that the creature when he first observed it, had been lying on its belly on the ground with its head facing toward the road. It then stood up facing the road. In that dark location, he saw the dull light from the glowing head illuminating the upper section of the body of the creature.

While the officer watched, the creature turned toward the right. The dull illumination from the head lit up the shoulder area. The creature then turned and faced him, then turned to the left and took off at an incredible speed away towards a location away from the road. As it moved off, the witness could see its arms swinging. The officer indicated that it took off at a speed that you could only call abnormal. “it was faster than anything I have ever seen. It was there, then it was gone.”  The witness assumed that the creature moved on two legs, however, he could not see the lower sections of the body in the dark.

The witness described what he saw as standing 6 feet or taller. The head was about 8-10 inches in diameter and shaped like a ball. He said the head was just a ball of light, possibly egg shaped but pretty round. The light emitted seemed to be just a dull white. The light illuminated the shoulders, the top of the chest and a section of the arms. The witness could not see the hands. The chest looked to be about 18 inches across. The waist appeared to be small, but the arms were abnormally long. The long limbs also looked skeletal with no muscle mass. The skin tone of the body appeared to be dull grayish-blue. The witness could not see any facial features.

The entire experience only lasted about 10 seconds. The officer was confused as to what he saw and about what could move so fast. He pulled up his vehicle to the location where the creature and been standing and turned on his vehicle spotlight. He looked around the area but saw no evidence on the ground. The officer, after the experience, continued to try to make sense out of what he had encountered but he could not figure it out.  I was contacted soon after the incident and we later discussed the incident in detail.

Notes: While this is a very strange report, many very odd creature encounters have been reported for years from Pennsylvania and all across the country. There have been other reports somewhat similar, and there have been other cases reported where the creature involved had a glowing effect in the dark.

During the many years that I have been investigating such cases in Pennsylvania, I had the opportunity to interview state troopers and municipal police officers who also reported some very strange encounters. In most cases, they talked with me confidentially about what had taken place.

Huge Fireball Reported Over Pennsylvania-August 25, 2017

Huge Fireball Reported Over Pennsylvania-August 25, 2017

What appears to have been an extra bright fireball meteor (bolide) was reported from Westmoreland County, Pa on August 25, 2017 at about 9:12 PM. There were apparently many residents that observed the object from communities from across the county. The object was observed moving from the southeast to northwest and described as bright white-orange fireball with a long blue-green trail. No sound was reported from those I talked with and the object was observed for about 5 seconds.

The American Meteor Society is reporting widespread sightings of the object from 10 states. They also have reports from the counties of Allegheny, Westmoreland, Indiana, and Fayette and from many other parts of the state. If you saw the fireball from the Greater Pittsburgh area, please let me know what you observed and from what location. I can be contacted at paufo@comcast.net or 724-838-7768.

January 10, 2017- Flying Humanoid Reported in Kentucky/Ohio Area

January 10, 2017- Flying Humanoid Reported in Kentucky/Ohio Area

Lon Strickler at the Phantoms & Monsters website, http://www.phantomsandmonsters.com/ has been keeping the public updated on the recent wave of winged humanoid sightings around Chicago. While I focus on the ongoing anomalies in Pennsylvania, I commonly receive other crypitd reports from across the country. Earlier this year I interviewed a witness who had a strange encounter in the Kentucky/Ohio area.

The witness was driving east bound on Route 52 on a desolate area of road, about a ¼ mile from the Ohio River. It is my understanding this took place around the Ohio/Kentucky border in the vicinity of Ashland, Kentucky.

That evening there was a cold, misty rain occurring with few cars on the road. Suddenly only about 35-40 feet off the ground, the driver observed a silhouette in the approaching traffic lights and then from the headlights of his vehicle what appeared to be a large humanoid creature with huge wingspan. The witness described the humanoid body as about 5 to 5½ feet long. The skin color was dark tan, not black or brown. The wings of the creature were estimated to have a wingspan of 12-15 feet and no feathers were observed on the body only what appeared to be skin.

The witness only observed the creature for several seconds as it approached him and passed overhead. The man stated that he never saw the wings flap, and that the wings were spread out. He did notice that the joints of the wings were very pronounced, that the legs were held together and held back, and that the arms were held along the side of the body and extended to around the thighs. The witness heard no sound during the few seconds that he observed the winged creature.
