‘Kecksburg’ film’s Westmoreland County premiere set for Hanna’s Town

The Westmoreland County premiere of “Kecksburg,” a new feature film about the famous 1965 UFO incident, is planned for Sept. 28 at Historic Hanna’s Town.
Westmoreland Historical Society will host the screening at 7 p.m. in the Westmoreland History Education Center at the historical complex, 809 Forbes Trail Road, Hempfield.
The program will include a discussion with the film’s researcher. Popcorn will be served.

The movie centers around WHJB radio reporter John Murphy, who was among the first to arrive at the scene of the mysterious crash and who saw his attempts to investigate it further stymied by the government.
Murphy, played in the movie by South African actor Scott Cooper, died four years later in a hit-and-run accident while on vacation in California.
Kecksburg is, according to producer/director Cody Knotts, a “fictional account of the incident based on historical facts” that explores the “history, mystery, and legend” of the incident that came to be known as “Pennsylvania’s Roswell,” referring to a similar 1947 incident in the remote New Mexico town.
The “Kecksburg” world premiere was Sept. 12 at the State Theatre Center for the Arts in Uniontown.
Space is limited for the Sept. 28 screening. Fee is $12, or $10 for historical society members.

Super Awesome Science Show: Studying UFOs

Have you ever seen strange lights in the sky? How about oddly shaped vessels floating around in the air? If you have and cannot explain it, you may have seen an unidentified flying object, better known as a UFO.

On this week’s Super Awesome Science Show, we’re going to venture into ufology — a field that’s working to figure out what these mysterious objects happen to be.
On the episode, we talk to Ryan Sprague, a prominent member of the ufology community, who has shared his views on UFOs in articles and interviews with news outlets, on his podcast Somewhere in the Skies and through his latest project, the TV show Roswell: Mysteries Decoded, which appeared on CW’s streaming network, CW Seed.

REVEALED: Cheshire's strangest UFO sightings

A sketch of a sighting in Knutsford in 2000, submitted to the MoD
SPINNING discs, gigantic sky snakes and pulsating lights above the M56 - these are Cheshire’s spookiest UFO sightings.
All eyes were on Area 51 last weekend, the United States Air Force military testing ground located in the deserts of Nevada.
Conspiracy theorists say the site is home to wreckage from downed alien spaceships - with a plan to ‘storm’ the military base attracting throngs of visitors to the area.
But you don’t need to visit Area 51 to find UFO sightings - Cheshire seems to be a hotbed.
According to - a website that logs sightings - there have been 417 UFOs spotted above Cheshire since 2008, twice as many as Derbyshire, with 222, and Merseyside’s 251.
And now Runcorn's Inflata Nation has compiled a list of the strangest ever sightings as they prepare to launch an ‘Alien Takeover’ event at their indoor inflatable theme park during the October half term.
Inflata Nation founder Matt Ball says: “The M56 can be a scary place at the best of times, and it’s known as something of an accident blackspot.
“And the next time you’re stuck in traffic, you might want to glance upwards - because plenty of people have seen strange lights in the sky above this motorway.”
The following sightings took place between 1997 and 2009, and were all reported to the Ministry of Defence.
Northwich, May 2009: 'Four big lights in a line formation. Two dropped down and the other two moved off quickly into the distance.'
Winsford, May 2009: 'An orange light travelling from the south. It was followed by two more orange lights on the same path, then five more and then two more. They made no noise but were at the height of a helicopter.'
Knutsford, October 2000: 'Triangular shaped aircraft. Light on each point of the triangle. Large fluorescent tube - the full length of the trailing edge.'
Knutsford, January 1998: 'One small, kite-sized, leaf-shaped object. Was bright red in colour. Moved very fast.'
Mottram, August 1998: 'One to four bright triangular objects, that then changed to a round shape. They were all white. Were there for one hour.' 

Chelford, January 1997: 'One object, 50 metres across. Was round and dark, with white incandescent lights around it. With two very bright, red lights beneath it.' 

One of the newer sightings listed on the website, in Middlewich in June 2017, details a 'strange object' shaped like a white ring, which 'shrank/morphed' into a ball and disappeared.

US Navy confirms leaked ‘UFO videos’ are real & never should have been released to the public

US Navy confirms leaked ‘UFO videos’ are real & never should have been released to the public Three videos appearing to show encounters between US Navy aircraft and UFOs are real, the service has admitted, while insisting the clips merely show so far “unexplained aerial phenomena” and were never cleared for public release.
Three widely-circulated clips depicting military aircraft interacting with UFOs – mysterious objects performing maneuvers not possible using existing aviation technology – were never supposed to be released to the public, the Navy’s Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare spokesman Joseph Gradisher told the Black Vault earlier this month, but the videos are genuine – and their contents can’t be explained.
“The Navy designates the objects contained in these videos as unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAP), Gradisher said, explaining that UAP is used instead of UFO as the “basic descriptor for the sightings/observations of unauthorized/unidentified aircraft/objects that have been observed entering/operating in the airspace of various military-controlled training ranges.”
Translated into English: we don’t know what they are, but there’s no evidence they’re alien in origin.
One clip (“FLIR1”) shows a dark, pill-shaped object hovering for several seconds before scooting sideways extremely fast. Another (“GoFast”) shows the observing aircraft’s sensor lock onto a fast-moving target as the pilots are heard in the background excitedly wondering what exactly they’ve stumbled across. The third (“Gimbal”) shows an oblong object moving steadily before stopping and rotating as the pilots observing it exclaim in surprise.
The videos were released to Luis Elizondo – a former military intelligence officer who claims to have directed the Pentagon’s UFO research arm, Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program – in 2017, for use in a database about aerial threats. While declassified, they were not cleared for general public use.
Since then, the videos have made their way to the New York Times and To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a consortium of former intelligence officers, scientists, and celebrities promoting the investigation of UFOs and other “scientific mysteries.” The Pentagon complained, stating earlier this year that the videos “should still be withheld” as they were “never officially released to the general public,” but it’s a bit too late to put the unidentified flying cat back in the bag.
The Navy set up guidelines earlier this year for reporting “unidentified aircraft” entering US airspace, ensuring no encounter would go undocumented in response to a plethora of reports, and lawmakers have reportedly requested briefings on the issue as the Pentagon’s history of chasing UFOs under secretive programs like AATIP has become public knowledge.

Navy's attitude about releasing UFO videos more disturbing than the videos

By: Thomas L. Knapp

The U.S. Navy confirms that three online videos showing two military air encounters with what it calls "unexplained aerial phenomena" and the rest of us call "unidentified flying objects" are authentic, as Popular Mechanics reported.

The videos are interesting, and some might find them disturbing. What's more disturbing to me is that the Navy thinks the videos are none of our business, not even 15, or even four, years after they were recorded in 2004 and 2015.

Pentagon spokesperson Susan Gough told The Black Vault website, “The videos were never officially released to the general public by the DoD (U.S. Department of Defense) and should still be withheld."

The videos aren't classified. They just haven't been "cleared for public release."
No such long-term category as "not cleared for public release" should exist with respect to information generated or acquired by government.
There are legal standards for "classifying" information as "confidential," "secret," or "top secret," based on supposed degrees of damage to national security disclosure of the information might cause.

I'm personally against allowing the state to keep secrets at all. They claim to work for us. If we're really their bosses, we should get to look over their shoulders any time we please.

Of course, that won't happen. But given the fact that the classification system does exist, there should also be a non-negotiable time limit within which any given piece of information must either be classified or made available to the public.

I'm not referring to deniable requests for information filed under the Freedom of Information Act. All government information not classified within 30 days of its creation or acquisition should be stored in databases that the public can search at will.

UFOs have been a matter of intense public interest since at least as far back as the 1947 Roswell incident, which still spawns rumors of alien craft and corpses held in secret government facilities.

I don't know, and am not going to claim to know, whether we're being visited by extraterrestrials — and if so what they're up to while they're here. I don't have strong opinions on which sighting and abduction stories are true and which aren't. I'm just exactly smart enough to understand that I don't have the information I'd need to reach such conclusions.

What I do know is that it shouldn't be the government's prerogative to conceal such information from the rest of us indefinitely, tell us tall tales about weather balloons and swamp gas, and offer lame "national security" excuses when called out.

Nor are UFOs the only subject this problem touches. The post-World War II national security state has developed a culture of general secrecy that we accommodate at our peril.

Concealing information from the public should be incredibly difficult — not a matter of course.
