Top 10 Kecksburg UFO Crash Secrets

9th December, 1965 was a memorable day for the residents of the small village of Kecksburg in Pennsylvania, USA. At around 4:40 PM locals saw a UFO crash down into the woods. As the cops arrived at the reported crash site, they started investigating the matter. Pretty soon, military showed up and they roped off the entire area and started their search. Although they were spotted removing some object on a flatbed truck pretty soon, the authorities claimed that they had found nothing at the search site.

It was obvious that similar to the Roswell crash incidence that had happened 18 years ago, the government was again trying to cover-up some mysterious story about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Here are some of the surprising secrets associated with the crash that would reveal that the government did try to cover up the whole thing.

What people initially thought

(1) The object that had crashed in the woods of Kecksburg was seen over a number of states that included Michigan and Ohio as well as Ontario in Canada. The object looked like a fiery fireball and left a trail of smoke behind it which made people initially think that it was a meteor.

(5) There were no bodies or any signs of casualties at the crash site. The object was one solid piece of metal and there were no doors or windows and any form of opening on the flying object that had crashed down.

Military covered it all

(6) The military had deployed two local teenagers, Michael Slater and his brother to misguide people regarding the crash site. They were told to guide people asking for direction of the crash site to anywhere but the actual site of the crash. What could have been the interest here to keep people away from the crash site?
