Default Kecksburg UFO segment

does anyone else think is one of the most well made and also creepiest segment of UM? For whatever reason I remember being majorly creeped out by this segment.

Just starting from the opening scene where we see those two kids see the object fall into the forest and then later when people go in to investigate and see the object for the first time


then later when the military shows up and the extremely cold way they were acting.


Then I remember this part that really creeped me out. The citizens of the town said they later saw four men carrying a large box out of the forest. Someone said that the box looked too small to carry the actual object and wondered if there was something IN the object they were removing. I immediately assumed there were alien bodies in that box.


Then later when the military leaves the town with the object a boy looks out his window and see the truck slowly roll past his house. Another moment that gives me creeps for some reason


but the main moment I remember creeping me out severely was the final part of the segment when the investigator says something "I think there are only two possibilities when it comes to the object. That were are looking at a highly advanced space probe, possibly from a foreign nations, or there could be the possibility that this could be an extra terrestrial spacecraft". Then they show the show of the object flying across the sky with this really creepy music playing. Damn I am getting chills just thinking about it.


Besides that though this segment I remember was really well made from a production standpoint and all the witnesses really seemed credible.

Other than depicting kids riding bikes in t-shirts in Pennsylvania in December, which does not happen often and probably never has, it was done all right.

I have one FBI Document on this Case. This raises more suspicion.

I really like this episode. All of the interviewees are pleasant to listen to, it's well-shot, and you have what looks to be like a pretty interesting UFO case. The part that kind of creeps me out is when the man with the gauge tells the lady whose farm it burned up near, "It's here. [We can tell] because of the radiation."

I think this was a Soviet satellite crashing to earth. The only soldiers readily available to go to the site would be active Army guys from the Nike sites around Pittsburgh. The nearest sites were in Irwin and Cowansburg. The units were HQS, B and C Batteries, 3d Battalion, 1st Artillery. The higher headquarters, the 18th Air Defense Group, was at Oakdale near the Pittsburgh airport. If I were a local interested in this incident, I'd find some of those old Nike soldiers and ask them about it.

I was chilled watching this as a kid. Just a small part of the reason I have to tuck my head under the blankets when things go bump in the night.

I only noticed this the last time I watched the episode, plus all the Air Force personnel are wearing late area Vietnam issue jungle shirts and there's one guy wearing 80's woodland camo. That just annoys me to no end.

Like this lady whose husband, quite the history buff, is always saying, "Not in that bloody uniform he didn't!"

This is one of the most fascinating UFO segment of UM. Unlike Other UFO stories which fall apart under deeper inspection this incident had basically a whole
Town of witnesses that saw a strange object fall from
The sky and the military arrive and retrieve t and later cover it up


And like I said in the OP. The episode really creeps me out for some reason

It fell apart just like the others under inspection.

Sounds like that Netflix show set in the 80's.

The thing that always stood out to me about this case was the date, which happened to be my dad's 16th birthday. That and the map of the satellite's path, which traversed a good deal of my home state of Ohio and probably could have been seen from Columbus if someone was looking in the right direction. Not too many cases highlighted this part of the country so that stuck in my mind.

Yeah, that was ridiculous. Not to mention the woods in the area was in full bloom.

Just watched this episode on Youtube. I remember seeing it as a kid and thinking it was really interesting but now the whole thing is pretty easy to debunk.

Scientists were well aware of a large meteor in late 1965 which broke apart and scattered all over western Pennsylvania. It wasn’t something that just showed up in the sky unexpectedly. The Air Force did investigate because it was the Cold War and the story snowballed from there. Most of the people in the town said they didn’t remember anything sinister about the incident and some were even angry at Unsolved Mysteries for drawing conspiratards to their front step.

The people interviewed in the segment were likable but their anecdotes were really laughable for the most part — especially the guy saying he saw “hieroglyphics” on the object and has since studied ancient writing to the point where he can say for sure that it was definitely extraterrestrial writing. If I wasn’t a nice guy I’d say they’re a bunch of dumb hicks.

This “mystery” just doesn’t hold up anymore.
