New movie explores Kecksburg UFO mystery

A new film explores the events surrounding one of the world's most enduring UFO mysteries.
The incident began on December 9, 1965 when thousands of witnesses across several states observed a peculiar fireball which dropped 'hot metal debris' as it blazed through the heavens.

Despite the sightings being fairly widespread however it was the small town of Kecksburg in Pennsylvania that would become most closely associated with the incident.

It started when a young local boy claimed that he had seen the object landing in nearby woods and his mother later reported it to the authorities when she saw strange blue wisps rising from the trees.

Several locals including members of the fire department went out to investigate the scene and came across an odd acorn-shaped object the size of a small car with strange writing on its surface.

Within a short space of time there were reports of an intense military presence at the crash site with army officials ordering civilians away from the scene while the object was being loaded onto a truck.
The incident was later played down as nothing more than a meteor impact, however many people still believe that the military had been covering up something a lot more significant.

To this day, no definitive explanation for what happened has ever been found.

Over the years numerous documentaries about the case have been released and 'Kecksburg' - a docu-drama of the incident created by director Cody Knotts - is perhaps the most compelling yet.

It was completed with the help of crowdfunding support and screened in select theaters in September, however a wider release is expected early next year.

Until then, you can check out a trailer for it below.

Not another one trying to write their own narrative because they don't like the sound of the real one.  Lol

Sorry mate.  But it would disintegrate on impact.  Why do you thing re-entry capsules have a parachute brake and land in the ocean?  The skeptics are completely losing it it would seem.

The reentry vehicle probably had a heatshield and parachute, thats why it survived. Witnesses did not see the chute as it was probably high up in the dark trees somewhere.

No witnesses saw a parachute despite watching it for some time. In fact the object was reported to have changed direction.  If you don't like the narrative change it.  Isn't that your only stance? Find out what really happened in the remote town of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania on the chilly evening of December 9, 1965 as documentary filmmakers explore the hotly-contested events surrounding the crash of a mysterious object from space that some people claimed to have been an actual UFO. Though quickly dismissed by government officials as a simple meteorite, eyewitnesses claimed the descending object ... [More]

I would challenge the skeptics on this one to answer: 1) Why do witnesses say it changed direction? 2) Where is the object now?  Why hasn't the USM come clean? 3) If it was terrestrial how come it didn't break up? 4) How come the witnesses that were at the scene described an acorn shaped object.  They were after all at the scene. This is why people are adamant that it was an ET craft. However if you want to make up your own narrative then of course it could be a Chevy Nova. After all isn't the truth what we want it to be?

Just for completion: Most investigators believe it was taken to a hangar at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, where one witness claims to have seen what appeared to be a small body on a gurney next to it. The witness told Mr. Gordon that there was an arm hanging down. “It had three digits and lizard-like skin,” Mr. Gordon said he was told

I believe the Germans had an acorn-shaped craft they were trying out at the end of the war and it would make sense for this one at Kecksburg to be something the US military were trying to get going with the help of the German scientists - possibly the same ones who worked on the German craft. It must have been many years before they managed to back-engineer the alien engine technology and the best the military had before they managed this back-engineering, was the German 'Bell' acorn-shaped craft. I suspect it was this or a more modern version of it. I think I remember there have been stories ... [More]

Nope.  It wasnt German or US or Russian.  Remember the hieroglyphs reported?  Or are you another 'Narrative-u-Like' person?

I think you are forgetting that anyone can put any "heiroglyphs" on anything they want.  Maybe there are more possibilities than you want to explore.  You like the narrative of aliens from outer space so you aren't interested in any other possibilities.  Pot, Kettle, both black.  "Or are you another 'Narrative-u-Like'"
