In 2007, UFO Investigator Leslie Kean files a FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) request for all information NASA has on the Kecksburg UFO event. A judge ordered NASA to look again after their orignal response was deemed inadequate. Well, after 2 years of searching NASA has come up blank in their search for files pertaining to the UFO crash at Kecksburg Pa In 1965.
The above link details the complete report from Leslie Kean regarding what NASA 'found' and what they 'didn't find' in their search.
December 9th 1965 a strange object appeared in the skies over several states. Many witnesses saw the object streak across the night sky.
The official report was that a meteorite or meteor had crashed in or near Kecksburg Pennsylvania.
Ivan Sanderson, UFO Researcher, conducted an exhaustive investigation, interviewing various eye-witnesses of the Kecksburg UFO Event. It became apparent early on that this was no common 'meteorite' crashing to earth.
The UFO, or meteorite as was reported, that crash landed in Kecksburg Pa. December 9th, 1965 was witnessed by hundreds of people in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan. The object was originally reported to be a meteorite.
According to researcher Sanderson's findings the said object showed a clear trajectory moving from NW to SE. It was visible for about 6 minutes, this would put its speed too low to be meteor . His calculation of the objects speed was around 1,000 mph.
This UFO was observed by pilots in the air as well as ground witnesses. The pilots reported shock waves as the object sped past them. Sonic booms were also reported on the ground. The object left a vapor trail that stayed in the sky for close to 20 minutes.
Apparently the object changed direction in mid flight and started to head east. For this reason, Sanderson did not believe it to be a meteor or meteorite. It eventually landed in a heavily wooded area of Kecksburg Pennsylvania.
The Military arrived at the crash site shortly after the crash. They told all civilians and firefighters to leave the area immediately. The Military told the local police there was nothing there and they could leave as well.
The fire department had managed to get within 200 ft of the object before being told to leave. They described the object as having blue flashing lights and noticed a cutaway in the trees where the object traveled through.
A large flatbed truck was seen leaving the area with a large oval object covered with tarps. One witness supposedly saw a 'Acorn' shaped object being loaded onto the flatbed truck. The object appeared to have hieroglyphics etched on it.
The object supposedly had been transported to Wright Paterson Air Force Base, never to be seen again.
Fast forward to 2007, UFO Investigator Leslie Kean files a FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) request for all information NASA has on the Kecksburg UFO event. A judge ordered NASA to look again after their orignal response was deemed inadequate. NASA had previously supplied documents that Kean said "were not reponsive of the freedom of information request" she had filed. U.S. District Judge Emmit Sullivan agreed. NASA's request to throw out the lawsuit was denied by Judge Sullivan resulting in negotiations that led to NASA promising that it would conduct a more comprehesive search.
