NASA Told To Solve 'UFO Crash' X-File

For four decades, residents of the tiny Pennsylvania town of
Kecksburg have told their story of strange blue lights in the
sky one winter's evening and a fireball crashing into woods.

On 9 December, 1965, they say, they saw armed soldiers cordoning
off the area and a large metallic acorn-shaped object bearing
strange hieroglyphics driven off at speed on the back of a
lorry. They talk of menacing plain-clothes officials visiting
homes and warning local people not to tell anyone of what they

Until now the US government has denied that anything sinister
took place. It has maintained that a thorough search of the
woods by the air force, the only federal agency to have
acknowledged it was there, found nothing. But now NASA has been
ordered to examine its X-Files to solve the mystery.

Steve McConnell, NASA's public liaison officer, has admitted two
boxes of papers from the time of the Kecksburg incident are
missing. The episode has parallels to the 1947 Roswell incident,
when a UFO was said to have landed in New Mexico.

'For so many years, a lot of good people in Pennsylvania were
told by their government that what they had to say was a lie or
that they were hallucinating,' said Leslie Kean, a journalist
who launched a lawsuit four years ago to force NASA to open its

Washington judge Emmett Sullivan refused to accept NASA's claim
that the papers had been lost. He gave it until the end of the
year to examine its records. 'Something came down that night,'
said Kean.

'NASA has been stonewalling and now it's required to do the
search it didn't do in the first place. It's a victory for those
patriotic people who didn't like being told that they were
making things up.'

Stan Gordon, a UFO investigator living close to the site,
interviewed several witnesses. He said: 'It's interesting that
[witnesses say] it was made of one solid piece of metal with no
panels or rivets, and that it was moving relatively slowly and
made almost a controlled landing.

'I have no doubt the government knows a lot more about this than
it has revealed to the public.'
