December 9, 1965. A fiery object rockets across the night (was seen by thousands in at least six U.S. states and Ontario, Canada) and crashes into the woods northeast of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania. Eyewitnesses said that was a copper-colored spacecraft, about 15 feet long, encircled by a band of writing like Egyptian hieroglyphics. The Army arrives within short time, throws a tarp over the thing (later called "The Keckburg Space Acorn"), and hauls it away on a flatbed truck. Everyone in town is told to forget about it. Official statements the next day attributed the fireball and the crash to a mid-sized meteor and asserted that nothing had been recovered from the woods. Others posit that the object was a piece from a Russian satellite – in particular, the spacecraft Kosmos 96, which reentered earth’s atmosphere that same day following a failed attempt to reach Venus – a misfired missile, or a time-traveling Nazi aircraft. (See the Nazi technology "The Bell"). In 1990 the Kecksburg incident attracted the attention of the television show Unsolved Mysteries, who, upon arriving in Kecksburg, proceeded to construct a life-size replica of the so-called Space Acorn based on eyewitness accounts. Following the shoot, the prop was left in Kecksburg where it was eventually placed on an elevated platform on a prominent hill in the hopes of emulating the tourist draw surrounding the famous incident in Roswell. Anyway, something extraordinary was there. Look at Wikipedia and read more
