Kecksburg, PA 1965
According to many witnesses, a brilliant object was seen over a large area, and it reportedly fell slowly from the sky into a wooded area near this community. Within hours after impact, the military arrived in the area, and a search was conducted for the fallen device.
It was a warm December night in 1965. I was 14 years old and my cousin John was 12 years old as we left my house to sneak a few cigarettes down the alley. We lived in the suburban community of Bridgeville; 12 miles southwest of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We came to this lithographic building which had a loading dock in the back. It was the perfect place to sit and smoke in secret. We knew we had to leave soon. The time was getting late into the evening. But, before we made our way back to my house:
Something pierced the night's sky over my left shoulder. Our heads turned to the left and our eyes could not help but notice a bright ball of light! Both John and I were stunned. Our mouths dropped. The object was about the size of a full moon and it trailed sparks or little bits of light. The odd thing about it was the thing did not fall straight down. The UFO went laterally; sideways; almost up! Whatever this was...it could not have been a meteor. A shooting star (or space debris) falls down. A natural object does not move horizontally. Meteors do not go up.
There was no sound. We could not tell its distance from us since the object appeared just like a big dot of light. This was no saucer with lights or any kind of features. The entire sighting lasted for approximately 5 seconds. Then, the object passed over the southern hill; behind the trees of what was called Cook School hill.
Kecksburg The Untold Story EBE Award
I am pleased to announce that I have been notified that my UFO video documentary "Kecksburg The Untold Story" won an EBE award recently at the 8th Annual International UFO Congress in Laughlin, Nevada. The 92-minute studio made production, won in the category of "Best Historical UFO Documentary." Each year the UFO Congress holds this event that focuses on the UFO phenomena, and among it's activities is the popular UFO film festival and EBE awards. The EBE awards were presented this year, for top UFO films in 10 categories.
Many people are aware of the Roswell incident in New Mexico, yet many others are unaware that a similar event occurred in Pennsylvania in 1965. I have been investigating the circumstances of the case since it occurred, and continue with my investigation. The Kecksburg video gives a detailed account of what reportedly took place around the village of Kecksburg, PA on December 9, 1965. According to many witnesses, a brilliant object was seen over a large area, and it reportedly fell slowly from the sky into a wooded area near this community. Within hours after impact, the military arrived in the area, and a search was conducted for the fallen device.
The next day officials indicated that what was seen was only a bright meteor, and that a search of the woods turned up nothing. The video includes testimony from witnesses who saw the object in the sky and as well as those who say they saw a strange metallic acorn shaped object semi-buried on the ground. There are interviews with many people who have knowledge of the event, including news reporters who were on the scene that night, and civilians who confronted armed military personnel. Other people provide various statements, that suggests that there was a coverup to withhold the truth from the public. The documentary also contains some of the actual audio segments from the WHJB radio special "Object in the Woods" which was broadcast in a "cut and edited" version soon after the incident. Is the object at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base?
