MYSTERY WIRE — A Pennsylvania man has spent more than 60 years of his life chasing monsters. Stan Gordon started out trying to solve a single type of paranormal phenomena but soon discovered there might be connections to other unexplained events.
By the time he was ten years old, Stan Gordon was already interested in UFOs.
62 years later he’s still at it, and is known all over the world for his boots-on-the-ground investigations. But chasing UFOs inevitably led to other mysteries – what are known as cryptid creatures, more commonly called monsters.
“One of the patterns I saw years ago, and it’s still ongoing in these areas, and other areas as well, is that many low level close range UFO sightings, and many encounters with cryptids, Bigfoot, thunderbirds, black panthers, and a whole menagerie of other really weird creature cases,” Gordon said in a recent interview. He added that UFOs and creatures “commonly occur in the vicinity of high energy sources. So you have a lot of cases around power plants, high tension power lines, radio and broadcast communication towers, railroad tracks, gas lines, gas wells, goes on, and on and on. I have no doubt there’s an energy connection to the phenomena.”
Gordon is still going strong after 6 decades, even though he’s never seen any of the unknown phenomena he’s still chasing.
One of the major cases Gordon has investigated was the 1965 Kecksburg UFO incident. Some call this just as, if not more important than the Roswell incident.

The Kecksburg incident started with people in six U.S. states and Canada saying they saw a burning ball of light quickly descending, ending up above the area of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania where people claim the object fell to the ground.
“What I found out was that some of the local residents who saw this thing come down right over top of their head, making no sound, they didn’t hear any major sound. A few people said the heard what they thought was some type of a hissing noise,” Gordon said. “But they’d get down into the woods soon after it had fallen. They come across this large, metallic acorn shaped object, kind of an off gold bronze color, semi buried in the ground. This thing is approximately 10 to 12 feet in length, about eight to 10 feet in diameter, one solid piece of metal, which is important, because as one witness who was only a few feet away from it told me, he was a machinist always liked, he said, it looked like somebody took a liquid metal and put into an acorn shaped mold. So there’s no rivets, no seams, no fuselage, no wings, but on a raised up part of the back of the object, like on the acorn shape. He said there were markings on it that look more like some type of symbols than writing.”
Gordon went on to explain that area firemen and law enforcement descended on the crash site, followed by the military. Witnesses say the military loaded the tarpaulin covered acorn shaped object on the back of a military flatbed tractor trailer and drove off with it visible on the truck.
“Many, many people saw that and I was told it went to Lockbourne Air Force Base near Columbus, Ohio,” Gordon said. “They (military) set up a security perimeter around it, and they were given the shoot to kill order to anybody approach the hangar without the proper clearance. I also found out it only stayed there for a short time, then it continued on to Wright Patterson Air Force Base. And later I was contacted by other people would tell me exactly what building they took it to at Wright Patterson, it was not the infamous hangar 18.”
The 2021 Kecksburg UFO Festival is cancelled again due to the coronavirus situation. They are however holding a smaller fundraising event “Old Fashioned Days” on July 30-31, 2021.
