Evidence that I may be from outer space
The SCI FI channel is trying to force the government to release details about a reported UFO landing near the town in Western Pennsylvania where I was born. The event made local headlines just about 9 months before I was born. I always wondered why I didn't look much like my parents. Read on for links to the story:
OK, I'll admit I've learned what types of headlines get clicked on and which don't, so you'll forgive me if I now admit I really have no evidence that I may be from outer space (despite the many times folks have told me that I must be). Also, Greensburg, which is SW of Pittsburg is pretty far from where I was born (which is N of Pittsburg), so what's another white lie!? I just thought this story was great. I'll have to ask my mom and dad if they remember reading about this event!
Reuters reports that SCI FI's first legal target is NASA. The move, which was more than likely an excuse to hype the release of a new SCI FI expose' show about the incident (which aired Oct 17th - so look for a re-run if you missed it like I did) which is based on a real story.
From the Reuter's story: "In December 1965, residents of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania watched a fireball descend into a heavily-forested area 40 miles from Pittsburgh. That night the area was cordoned off by the military, trucks and helicopters came and went, and the town was briefly placed under martial law. The next day, headlines in the Greensburg, Pennsylvania Tribune-Review read "Unidentified Flying Object Falls Near Kecksburg" and "Army Ropes Off Area," but residents of Kecksburg were never told why the military cordoned off the area and what, if anything, was found. The results of Sci Fi's new investigation into the incident will air Friday in a documentary hosted by Bryant Gumbel called "The New Roswell: Kecksburg Exposed."
