With a background in electronics and a full time job in the advanced electric sales field, Stan Gordon may appear to be an average person. However, Gordon’s life is anything but ordinary, as his other job is investigating Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), Bigfoot, and other strange phenomena.

Gordon has done numerous investigations on UFO and Bigfoot encounters in the Westmoreland County area. Although he has seen lots of evidence, Gordon has never witnessed a UFO or Bigfoot himself. Gordon has been researching these strange occurrences for 48 years. During his tenth birthday on the eve of Halloween, Gordon received an AM radio. Because of his interest in science, he began to tune the AM radio to find strange frequencies and listen to paranormal broadcasts.

December 9, 1965, the day of the Kecksburg UFO incident, started Gordon on a lifetime pursuit of his interest in UFOs and Bigfoot sightings.

“I think that UFOs are something that we will never understand,” said Erin Waite, a sophomore at Seton Hill University (SHU).

“Pennsylvania has had a long history of encounters of the unusual kind. From yearly sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects to observations of mysterious creatures,” said Gordon.

As the census is not yet in for 2007, 2006 had its fair share of encounters as 35 counties in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania made claim to witnessing a UFO or Bigfoot.

“I thought I had seen a UFO a few times but anything that is in the air and cannot be identified can be considered a UFO,” said Cleveland Steward, a resident of Greensburg.

Gordon has just completed a manuscript for his first book about the 1973 and early 1974 UFO and Bigfoot sightings in Westmoreland County. He has a documentary entitled “Kecksburg, The Untold Story” for sale on DVD or VHS, which was the winner of the 1998 EBE film award for “Best Historical UFO Documentary.”

This award-winning documentary, as well as any upcoming lectures or reports, can be found at his website www.stangordon.com.

Gordon works out of his home in the Greensburg area. Gordon suggests that anybody that thinks they see a UFO or has some strange encounter with anything of the paranormal call his hotline, rather than visit his home/office. He can be reached at (724) 838-7768 or written at PO Box 936, Greensburg, PA 15601.
