Description: Hi I just thought I would send this report. In 1965 (I was 12!!) I was walking down the street on Carol Lane ( my home on Grand Island and still my home) on a very warm day for December in my area, probably between 3 and 4 PM. My friends and I were walking down the street facing Enola Rd which is West. If you Google 71 Carol Lane, request a satellite image and go out enough to see Hamilton, Ontario across Lake Erie you will find Kecksburg in a line straight southwest. As to how I saw it: It was getting toward dusk, but skies were clear and still bright outside. About 3:00 Pm on the horizon moving south, I saw a HUGE green and yellowish sparkler effect object shooting across the sky for about 10 seconds. The object was way larger and way slower than regular meteors and shooting stars that we usually see. It seemed like it had like a "Star Trek Worp Drive Flash" after it went by. That was the last thing I saw. I am pretty darn sure I heard a sizzling effect as it went on. We were all amazed at the sight of this object. My Mother said at the time for me to go inside write down the date that I saw this amazing object, and the paper sat in my junk drawer for years!! My wife and daughters can recount this as much as I can because they have heard it so much. We want to thank you for your interest in my experience.

Note: Perhaps the witness did see the object that allegedly crashed near Kecksburg, Pennsylvania. However, the fact that the exact time of the sighting is not known makes it more difficult to correlate. However, the fact that the object was seen moving to the south (towards Kecksburg) suggests that this was more than likely the same object seen by residents in Kecksburg.
