I remember wanting to visit Kecksburg, but having the damndest time finding it listed on ANY maps. I looked through Rand McNally's US Road Atlas, and
went to the section where they list all the towns and cities coordinates so they're easy to find.... no mention of Kecksburg in at least four
different publications of Rand McNally atlases. I was planning a road trip to go see some people about some things, and I was gunna be driving through
PA, figured I'd stop by Kecks and have a look. I didn't search much more for a map with kecksburg listed, no doubt there is one, but I found it
weird that Rand McNally wouldn't include a town that has national celeb status as being a UFO crash site.
I think that there is a strong possibility that it WAS a downed Russian sattelite, though. Cold war, space race, paranoia on high... seems possible.
Seems weird that Kecksburg isn't listed in some popular road atlases though. Unless Kecksburb is more like a hamlet or something that hasn't really
gained enough status to be listed in most city listings or on most maps?
Whatever. Something important happened at Kecksburg. It was treated as such, and to this day is barely ever mentioned, so who knows?
