The '''Kecksburg UFO incident''' occurred on December 9, 1965 at Kecksburg (Kecksburg, Pennsylvania), Pennsylvania, USA (United States). A large, brilliant fireball was seen by thousands in at least six U.S. states and Ontario, Canada. It streaked over the Detroit, Michigan Windsor, Ontario area, reportedly dropped hot metal debris over Michigan and northern Ohio, Metal debris fall and recoveries were reported in or near Elyria, Ohio, and Livonia, Jackson, and Battle Creek, Michigan. Example sources were Chicago ''Tribune'' and Baltimore ''Sun'', December 11, 1965 (Livonia), Elyria ''Chronicle-Telegram'', December 11, 1965, and UPI story in Kalamazoo (MI) ''Gazette'', December 11, 1965 (Jackson & Battle Creek) starting some grass fires E.g., ''The Spokesman-Review'', December 10, 1965, p. 1, "U.F.O.

E.g., Pittsburgh astronomer Nicholas Wagman was quoted by UPI December 10 saying he believed the fireball to be a Geminid meteor and that "there were reports of a shock wave in parts of Western Pennsylvania at the time of the sighting" similar to a meteorite found in Pennsylvania in 1938. It was generally assumed and reported by the press to be a meteor ibid; also same UPI story reports astronomer Paul Annear also thinking it might be a meteor and quoted "sources at the Pentagon" saying they believed it to be a meteorite. A later UPI story December 15 cited geophysicist George Wetherilo saying it was probably a meteor and discounted that it was debris from a satellite. Similarly AP stories December 10 & 11 quoted astronomers William Bidelman and Fred Hess as saying it undoubtedly was a meteor bolide and cited F.A.A. spokesmen saying it was probably a meteor. after authorities discounted other proposed explanations such as a plane crash, errant missile test, or reentering satellite debris '''Patrick Michael Boutette''' (born March 1, 1952 in Windsor (Windsor, Ontario), Ontario) is a retired Canadian (Canada) professional ice hockey centre (centre (ice hockey)).
