UFO and Bigfoot researcher and author, Stan Gordon, will present “Strange Encounters of Pennsylvania,” during a program at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Carnegie Free Library in Connellsville.

Gordon said he will discuss the history of UFOs, Bigfoot, and other strange incidents and phenomena that have occurred in and around this area, as well as statewide. He will also give an update on recent strange encounters that he has been investigating.

Gordon has been researching UFO sightings, Bigfoot encounters, and other mysterious events in Pennsylvania since 1959. Over the years he has been involved with the investigation of thousands of unusual incidents. He is the primary investigator of the 1965 UFO crash incident that occurred near Kecksburg. He has been taking calls on UFO sightings and other strange reports from the public since 1969, and he continues to receive reports on the unusual on a regular basis.

“Connellsville and Fayette County, historically, are among the most active for repeated Bigfoot and UFO sightings. I have investigated many strange incidents near Connellsville and all over the Fayette County area over the years. Many UFO sightings, reported Bigfoot encounters, and numerous other mysterious events continue to be reported yearly from that general area,” said Gordon.

He is the producer of the video documentary, “Kecksburg The Untold Story.” He is the author of several books, “Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook,” “Monsters of Pennsylvania,” and “Really Mysterious Pennsylvania.” He appears frequently on radio and television programs discussing his research on these topics.

Gordon has been seen on the History and Discovery Channel, Syfy Channel, Destination America Channel, and “Unsolved Mysteries,” as well as numerous other programs.

He has been a guest on the Coast to Coast radio show several times. He also appears in several new films dealing with the Bigfoot subject and has a number of illustrated lectures also available.

Gordon is scheduled to appear on several new TV shows in 2014.

Saturday's program is free and open to the public. No reservation is necessary.

Gordon said he will have a display of UFO and Bigfoot information and will be doing book and DVD signings after the program.
