Kecksburg UFO Incident
The Kecksburg UFO incident takes its name from Kecksburg, Pennsylvania where in December 9, 1965, a fiery-trailed, brilliantly glowing object, first seen over Canada and shedding debris as it went, while seemingly under intelligent control, came whizzing in and crashed into the woods outside the town of Kecksburg. Curious locals who rushed to see the Kecksburg UFO were soon met by government agents and armed troops, who swiftly cordoned off the area, brought in heavy equipment and placed the object on a
Kecksburg UFO Not Nazi
Thanks to info at the second link, we now know where the Kecksburg UFO was taken, Lockbourne AFB, near Columbus, Ohio, before ultimately winding up at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (AFB), Dayton, Ohio. There, it was seen by a contractor who rush delivered 6,500 radiation resistant bricks to a hangar at Wright-Patterson AFB, as reported by him, as shown in a sketch reproduced in Joseph Farrell’s SS Brotherhood of the Bell, and as reconstructed for ppi History Channel’s TV show “UFO Files.” Farrell believes the Kecksburg UFO is in fact die Glocke, the Bell (a Nazi super weapon) which forms the subject of his book, both by known similarity of size and shape, but also because of the radiation hazard the object in the hangar posed, a situation wholly in keeping with the known and reported biohazards of the Bell. Alas for the massively educated Farrell, he’s wrong. Dead wrong. And the strange marking at the base of the craft, reported by multiple eyewitnesses, are NOT Nazi mystical runes, but something more prosaic.
Kecksburg UFO Neither A UFO Nor An IAC
Bluntly put, the Kecksburg UFO isn’t a UFO at all, nor an IAC (Identified Alien Craft), despite having wound up at Area 51′s S4 when it was all said and done. It is alien, as in foreign, but it is most assuredly terrestrial, and a sad Cold War relic at that. The Kecksburg UFO is, in fact, the inadvertent tomb of a Russian cosmonaut who got “cooked” by his poorly shielded nuclear power supply and died. No information available as to disposition of the cosmonaut’s body, but it was “hot,” so special measures would’ve been taken.
That such things could and did occur is shown by Cold War period Russian gallows humor: “Q: How can you tell a man from the Northern Fleet? A: He glows in the dark!” Readers may not know that most of Russia’s nuclear powered vessels were in the Red Banner Northern Fleet, nor that Admiral Hyman Rickover, the father of the American nuclear navy, received more radiation in a single visit to a nuclear powered Russian vessel than in his entire prior nuclear career! To hide the radiation poisoning problem from the public, the Russians set up special secure hospitals for the victims of poor Russian radiation shielding. This makes the Kecksburg UFO/Cosmos story highly plausible.
The Russians knew the Kecksburg UFO/Cosmos spacecraft, whose writing around the base was Russian, written in Cyrillic, went down somewhere, but only we knew where, and we desperately wanted to technically exploit that craft for its secrets. Everything on the “Kecksburg UFO” was painstakingly taken apart and examined, with the biggest find being the major Russian lead in small nuclear power plants (radioisotope thermoelectric generators). Ultimately, building on that highly secret discovery, the U.S. produced the SNAP (Systems for Nuclear Auxiliary Power), which was used in both acknowledged and unacknowledged space applications.
