When the Kecksburg incident occurred no one knew what was happening. Some locals thought they witnessed a rocket test, some thought it was a test craft crash, but recently a theory has been floated that the craft that smashed into the woods outside of Kecksburg was a German military time machine known as "Die Glocke" or "The Bell."
The schematics for The Bell do look eerily similar to the acorn shaped vehicle, but there's no real proof that that The Bell even exists, so it's unlikely that a time machine smashed into the Pennsylvania woods.
The Kecksburg Incident
The Kecksburg UFO incident that occurred on December 9, 1965, may have happened over Kecksburg, Pennsylvania, but it was seen by people across North America. On that night, a fireball streaked across the sky that was so bright it was seen by people in six states, and in Windsor, Canada. This isn't a story about two people who claim to have seen little green men, it's a real deal close encounter that's never really been explained.
Because of the volume of reports of something in the sky, and the ever-changing story from U.S. government officials, the Kecksburg Incident has lodged in the minds of believers and skeptics alike as ... something. There are simply too many accounts from witnesses on that night for it to be a hoax or hallucination. Whether what fell from the sky was man-made or of a more exotic nature -- that's a matter of debate. But the Kecksburg Incident has inspired such fascination over the years that it's sometimes called the "Roswell of the East," a reference to the site of an alleged 1947 UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico.
