Around nightfall on December 9, 1965, thousands witnessed an orange fireball streak across the sky heading out of Canada. Over Ohio, witnesses saw it stop still in mid-air, momentarily hover and change course towards Pennsylvania, and it would crash into the forest about 1.5 miles outside of Kecksburg. The military and elements of NASA were on hand seemingly within moments and clamped Kecksburg and the surrounding area under “virtual martial law”. Witnesses described the object as acorn-shaped and remarkably similar to later descriptions of Die Glocke.
