Stan Gordon of Greensburg shows the research he has conducted concerning the alleged Kecksburg UFO incident of 1965.

UFO and Bigfoot researcher Stan Gordon of Greensburg will share his knowledge about “Strange Encounters of Pennsylvania” May 4 in Latrobe.

Gordon will present his illustrated lecture at 2 p.m. in Adams Memorial Library, 1112 Ligonier St.

He’ll discuss the alleged 1965 crash-landing of an Unidentified Flying Object in 1965 near Kecksburg. That incident is detailed in the documentary DVD, “Kecksburg: The Untold Story,” narrated by Gordon.

Other topics will include: A wave of UFO and Bigfoot activity that was reported in 1973; low-level UFO encounters; mini-UFOs; strange creature reports from Westmoreland County, the Pittsburgh area and other parts of Pennsylvania.

Gordon will update the audience on more recent strange encounters he’s been investigating based on reports from 2017-2019.

Gordon began his research of strange phenomena in 1959, at age 10, and expanded into field investigations after the Kecksburg incident. He’s appeared in programs about such subjects that have aired on the History, Discovery and Syfy cable channels.

His presentation will include a display of UFO and Bigfoot information and a book and DVD signing

Gordon has written the books “Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook,” “Really Mysterious Pennsylvania” and “Astonishing Encounters: Pennsylvania’s Unknown Creatures.”

The event is free, but space is limited. Those planning to attend are asked to register by stopping at the library’s adult circulation desk or by calling 724-539-1972.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
