Kecksburg located in Mount Pleasant Township in Westmoreland County, is located about 40 miles SE of Pittsburgh. This rural community has become a location of international interest after a mysterious object reportedly fell from the sky into a nearby wooded area on December 9, 1965. What that metallic acorn shaped object with strange hieroglyphic-like symbols may have been is still being debated. The military that arrived on the scene that night apparently recovered the device and hauled it away.
The Kecksburg festival will be held on the volunteer fire department festival grounds. The location is Claypike and Rt. 982. The address is 5128 Water Street, Kecksburg, PA.

Pumas may be on the loose in Scotland as cat corpse is discovered
A dog walker has stumbled upon the corpse of an animal experts believe may have been a puma near a Scottish beauty spot.
John Robertson, 50, was walking his two dogs along a rural path in Cullen, Moray, with his wife Pauline, on Monday when he found the remains of what appeared to be a cat the size of a large dog.
Just metres from the rotting corpse were the remains of what may have been its last meal – half a dozen mauled seagulls.
Mr Robertson, from Drybridge, Moray, said yesterday: “I was walking my two dogs on Monday morning when we came across all these dead birds scattered about everywhere.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes. I have never seen so many dead birds in one area. They were completely mauled, they had their guts totally ripped out of them lying on the ground.
“Then a little further on we came across a horrible rotting smell which was this big cat.
“It looks like it has feasted on the seagulls and maybe it has fallen down the cliff nearby, injured itself and just lay there till it died.”
But despite its 18-inch-long tail and its sharp teeth, Mr Robertson claimed the animal was a cub.
He said: “If you see its skin, it’s jet black and I actually think it’s a juvenile.
“I didn’t have a tape measure on me to measure the tail, but I’m a builder so I have a pretty good idea that it’s about 18 inches long, which is huge.
“I reckon it’s a cub – its teeth are too clean and there isn’t enough damage to them, which means they must be pretty new. If that’s a cub though, you can imagine how big its mother would be.
“I’m sure we’ll find out from the DNA tests what type of cat it is, but it certainly seems like one of the big cats.”
Bob Wallace, an expert with the Big Cats In Britain research group, is now studying the remains to determine what Mr Robertson found.
While the cat is not big enough to be an adult leopard or jaguar, Mr Wallace believes it is the right size to be a cub.
He said: “If it is a juvenile, it would have to be last year’s cub, as both leopards and jaguars mate between January and March.
“It is also hard to say whether this is the cat that is the subject of the spate of recent sightings.
“Over the past few years, there have been several reported sightings of black panther-type cats, as well as pumas and lynx.”
As recently as 16 April, there was a sighting of what was described as a cat-like animal as large as a labrador, by a man walking his dog at Rathven Burn in Moray.
That sighting was very similar to eyewitness accounts from just two months earlier.
In February, a man from Portgordon, also in Moray, said he saw an animal matching the same description beside an old railway line in the village. Later that week, there was a similar sighting at Buckpool Golf Club. - scotsman

'Donkey rape' sparks tribal massacre in Yemen
Fifteen people were killed or injured in tribal fighting in Yemen after a male donkey chased an ass and raped it just near the house of its owner.
The owner of the ass became mad after he saw the donkey attacking his animal, prompting him to chase the donkey and hit it. The attack infuriated the donkey owner, who called his armed tribesmen and asked them to take revenge.
“The problem snowballed into an armed fight between Makabis tribe, which owns the donkey, and Bani Abbas which owns the ass. 15 people were either killed or injured in the battle.
A large police force intervened and stopped the fighting at a village in the southwestern province of Abb. Police have arrested eight persons involved in the conflict. - emirates247
UFO over Clifton, NJ
On May 21, 2012, while driving in Clifton, NJ, I was distracted by an image on an oil truck driving ahead of me. I was able to get a quick picture of it as I was driving. After observing the picture later in the day I noticed something in the top corner of the shot. It looked like an oval shape that didn’t seem to be any type of familiar object. After zooming in to get a better look, it occurred that the object looked similar to a UFO.
After viewing the picture a few times I was unable to come to any other conclusion. I believe I captured the image of a UFO passing over RT 3 in Clifton, NJ. I returned to the site several hours later to see if the object was still there but it was gone. - MUFON CMS

Alien in a tree?
Hi, my name is [Item Moved/CMS/nd] On Friday 5/11/2012. After dropped a lady at Elementary school, SE Powell Valley road, Gresham. I driver [Item Moved/CMS/nd] to find somewhere to get a good shot of Mount Hood because that day the sky was very clear! ( my hoppy is to take photos). I shot some pictures of Mount Hood but I wasn’t happy because they were not good enough! Then I accepted one order from Highway 212, North Clackamas. I used GPS and I had to drive 20 miles to get [Item Moved/CMS/nd] When I was driving on Waybill road, Gresham. I saw the Mount Hood with very beautiful view. I stopped [Item Moved/CMS/nd] and took 02 pictures. I was so happy because I had very good shots. And then I come to pick up and drop off customer at Estacada. When I come home at night, after download memory card to my laptop. Open the pictures,I saw one UFO next to Mount Hood. I was very excited because I had one UFO picture. (Last year, I saw something with diamond shaped above the trees when I drove my cab on Ross Island bridge about 7a.m. It moved slowly and disappeared).
The next day. I called my closed friend [Item Moved/CMS/nd] and he believed on UFOs, because he saw one brown round on Gresham areas. When I showed him the picture of UFOs. He said” Wow! You got one”. Latter when I zoom in the picture, I saw 04 other UFOs around the big one. Then I looked around my picture I saw something like a man above the tree! Was that an Alien?
This is my story about UFOs Pictures.
