On December 9, 1965, a large, brilliant fireball was seen by thousands in at least six states and Ontario, Canada. It streaked over the Detroit, Michigan/Windsor, Ontario area, reportedly dropped metal debris over Michigan and norther Ohio, and caused sonic booms in western Pennsylvania. Eyewitnesses in the small village of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania claimed that something changed directions and emitted a vapor trail had crashed in nearby woods. Several people from Kecksburg, including members of a the local volunteer fire department, claimed to find a copper colored object in the shape of an acorn and about as large as a Volkswagen Beetle. Whatever crashed in Kecksburg, the U.S. military quickly recovered, loaded onto a flatbed truck, and taken to an air force base in Ohio. The official government report said the object was simply a meteorite. Multiple eyewitnesses dispute the government’s assertion. This television program takes a sober look at why the military has maintained its silence about this mysterious object for more than 40 years.
