Possible sighting of the Kecksburg UFO

I was eight years old and I stepped out the front door of our house where the landlord and his son were doing yard work. We all looked up and saw a large fireball travelling north to south on a horizontal trajectory. The fireball was as large as the sun usually is in the sky. I told my mother about it and both she and my stepfather also came out of the house and we all watched it fly by until it was no longer visible. I now believe that what we saw that day was the Kecksburg object.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. However, the Kecksburg Incident occurred on December 09, 1965. PD))
