Internet debut of irrefutably genuine 32 year old footage! Even if it isn't much, it is GENUINE!

First let me tell you that as a Pittsburgher, this event has been stuck in the back of my mind for decades. As it stands right now, it shows unidentified flying objects. I have no clue if they are alien or manmade. So please don't give me a hard time. It is what it is. I just want your scrutiny and my closure on this. If nothing else, this video provides us with some really interesting UFO related commentary. And documented reactions to presumed UFO's on national TV. Video that has been obscured for over 3 decades! And quite interesting to see.

In 1979, I was told of a UFO being seen over 3 Rivers stadium. The man that told me was a neighborhood man that I chatted with sometimes. He told me to not tell a soul! And seemed very concerned that I kept my promise. But I was perplexed as to how a stadium UFO would be a secret. No one ever could provide any additional information. And I remained in the dark for over 30 years.

Recently, I came across a foggy mention of this on Mufon. But the date was nonspecific. And the specific details were wrong concerning location etc. I knew it happened right here in Pittsburgh. This made me set upon an exciting internet journey. This quest was a bit of nostalgia for me. Since I was a witness to the Pittsburgh UFO age in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. A brazenness of UFO's that is unheard of today.

My intensive research paid off. And I was able to find out more information now, than during the actual days following the game! One thing I learned, I had never even previously considered. It was nationally televised. (Duh... It was a football game.) Another was that Mufon possibly never got the footage that they wanted.

I have to admit that the search was a ton of fun! I felt like Indiana Jane searching for the holy grail of UFO's.
First searching for information and then the long obscured and coveted video. Waiting for the video to arrive in the mail was almost too much. I felt like a child at xmas. To make matters worse, I had to search for and buy a second copy of the video. Since the first one was cut to death and of poor quality. And what interesting parts were mostly missing? Hmm... Anyways, I had to wait for the second person to get back from vacation before he could even send the uncut version. Groan…. Then wait yet another week for it to arrive. This was a very long process. And the anticipation was too much! Well, it arrived today while I was at work.

Although it is not the exciting footage I was expecting, it is still something.... It was my first attempt at converting video to .avi. And I am certain that the quality suffered as a result. Then, to make matter worse, I used a top quality program to cut and edit it. Windows Movie Maker... Insert sarcasm here...


For those without video, I couldn't describe it any better than this account I found online. Pretty accurate, but not perfect. But I must say this person has an excellent memory.

XPOSE UFO TRUTH 1970's


I was watching the game on TV in Santa Barbara CA. between the Pittsburg Stealers and Dallas Cowboys in October 1979 from Three Rivers Stadium Pittsburg PA. During a commercial break around the 2 minute warning while Chuck Conners was sales pitching a toy gun, the commercial was cut abruptly and the picture went back to the stadium. The screen showed a metallic disk (10-30 ft.) spinning like a coin (1-2 rev per sec) on a table at height about equal to the top of the stadium. Pat Summerall's excited voice came on saying "We don't know what it is we are showing you...it just appeared in the sky". He repeated several time "I can't believe what I am seeing". Tom Brookshire ,the color man, said "Oh that...that's just an illusion". Summerall disagreed and said "Well if they land, they're gonna say "take me to your leader". The crowd got very quiet...you could hear a pin drop in the place. A penalty was called on a Dallas player because he failed to get into his stance ...was just looking up at the sky. Pittsburg was winning 14 to 3...they had the ball and were running out the clock. The game ended with the camera on the disk till the end. I never heard or read a word about in any media. I didn't want the game to end...I wanted to keep looking at the disk. I felt sad when the picture changed. I was attracted to it some strange way. It changed the way I look at life and the creedance I give our government and media.



So here you are. Highlights from the 10-28-79 Dallas Cowboys @ Pittsburgh Steelers game. I divided it up into 2 sections. And I also included some slow motion views of each time the UFO’s appeared. There could be more, but I have a lot to look at for now. There was some indication that they saw it earlier than the end of the game by a comment made by an announcer.

The first clip is the sudden interruption of the toy gun commercial to show the UFO’s. Then some interesting commentary about the UFO's, by the football announcers. Listen closely to all non-football related discussions. There is also a false start by #68 from Dallas due to the UFO distraction. Followed by a quick shot of the 2 UFO's again.




The second clip is the UFO shown at the end of the game.



The third clip is the first time the UFO’s were shown after the commercial, but in slow motion.



The fourth clip shows the UFO’s in slow motion after the commentary.



And finally, the fifth clip shows the end of the game UFO in slow motion.



This took me a month to get together. Please appretiate my work!

Cool videos! To *me* they look like kids toys, but are they stationary the whole time? Any indication if they moved around or were they in the same place each time they were filmed? I didn't listen with audio, which might have answered that.. *sheepish grin*

However, I can't imagine why any sort of vehicle would be spinning so fast.. While the video is definitely genuine in my very uneducated opinion, it seems to me like they're something manmade. Guess it depends how high up they are..

I just gotta say that it's refreshing to see a UFO vid that's not a ball of light. Plus it's old, plus, many people saw this. I could go on, but what's the point. Good stuff, hope it hasn't been previously posted.

Fantastic video! Hard to imagine it actually containing aliens...such a weird craft.!

Great footage, too bad it was just short clips... poor camera guy probably wanted to watch them closer but knew if he didn't stick to the game, he'd be out of a job.

They kind of looked and moved like silveryish water bubbles or something didn't they ?

Interesting indeed.

Argh! My old OS on my older blackberry won't let me watch the vids but I will watch as soon as I can. Being from around Pittsburgh too this strikes up some interest in the old noggin'. Wish I would have been around to see that when it happened - I'll have to ask my folks if they remember that. Awesome thread, and by the sounds of the video - it really seems amazing! Can't wait to watch, and thank you for posting this interesting event.

Great vids though - good find S&F

They look like roter kites.

Looks organic like the wind to me and not a inteligent controlled object.

Brilliant post OP, awesome find! I had never heard of this before, thanks for bringing it here. I am going to look at them again tomorrow with fresher eyes, just about to hit the sack.

Probably just swamp gas or kites with LED lights

nothing to see here!

This is awesome! Thank you for all the research and work! I'm sure many many people will appreciate it (including me).

I think this goes to show that there could be a clear UFO sighting with many present and it can easily fall into an obscurity and be forgotten.

I believe there a lot more incidences like this worldwide that people just haven't followed up on or thought too much about later because of the basic human instinct to ignore what you don't understand and isn't a direct threat.

So let me ask this, I'm assuming you got a full sized view on television before being resized and digitized. Is the view significantly better or is it still difficult to make out? It obviously isn't a blimp or a helicopter but I'd like to be able to see if it has any details of a balloon or something (like a fake UFO balloon sent up by a prankster).

Thank you again for all the work and the wonderful videos (By the way it doesn't matter to me if someone sent up a fake or it is a real ET, either way is very interesting).

I LOVE posts like this!!! It's a UFO video that I have never seen before....also it's one that comes from a time well before computer animation made such hoaxes quite easy to perform......

Unfortunately, I think I've debunked it.....or at least I have a pretty good Idea of what these things are. I think they are rotor kites. Such Kites have been around for a while. Take a look at this link and tell me if this isn't the likely culprit.

Those are birds (my opinion), If you see the one in the right, you will notice the wings. The shine blinking is because they are white in one side and dark in the other so when they move the wings under the sun creates that effect. The circle shape in the one at the left is because the camera zooming to much, creating distortion.

They appear to me to be U.F.O. Kites like the one I had as a kid. It had a pole in the middle and was connected to the string from both ends so it spins. Mine was metallic red on one circle and the other was metallic blue. Here are some examples....



It appears that bhornbuckle75 posted a video of the same kite while I was getting pics together Well done.

Exactly! I really don't care what it is. Well, ok a little. The whole idea of this was interesting. And I got a big kick out of the announcers. A 30 year video never before scrutinized by the public. Amazing if you ask me.

Absolutely and totally 100% solved! Thanks for finding this, otherwise I would have been genuinly stumped as to what they could have been.

Rotor Kites.
