NASA has agreed to search its archives once again for documents on a 1965 UFO incident in Pennsylvania, a step the space agency fought in federal court.
The government has refused to open its files about what, if anything, moved across the sky and crashed in the woods near Kecksburg, Pa., 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
Traffic was tied up in the area as curiosity seekers drove to the area, only to be kept away from the crash site by soldiers.
Eyewitnesses said a flatbed truck drove away a large object shaped like an acorn and about the size of a Volkswagon bus.

I expect no answer to this question, really. But what would a "civilian" agency like NASA have to do with military records of something that happened there?
Did they have people on site? Does the military usually report to them on such things?
And worst of all, would they tell the truth anyway?
“They could not find anything,” one Air Force memo stated after a late-night search on Dec. 9, 1965. Several NASA employees also were reported to have been at the scene.

That mess cost a reporter his life. Trying to tell people what had happened through witness reports was all-set for release just-just before the witnesses said NO. I do-not agree to my statement or give permission to release my (verbal) interview.
An unbelievable account of just part of the strangeness of the Kecksburg Incident.
NASA? I can't see any interest or involvement by NASA in the start-middle or end, with exception of metallurgy.
