Area “UFOlogist” Stan Gordon’s interest in the science of “UFOlogy” was first sparked in 1959 when he was a child of ten and he’s been researching UFOs ever since. The first case that caught his attention was when a large fireball was spotted in Kecksburg in Westmoreland County. The official report from the government dismissed the fireball as being merely a bright meter but eyewitness accounts report seeing military personnel remove evidence from the scene.

Gordon’s fascination with UFOs continued into adulthood and in 1969, he set up a hotline for UFO sightings. A year later, in 1970, he formed a local UFO research group, the Westmoreland County UFO Study Group. An eclectic group, members included engineers, scientists and former military intelligence personnel who would respond within minutes to hours to reported sightings. The group gained popularity with police and the media.

In addition to his work as a UFOlogist, Gordon also investigates sightings of Bigfoot, which occur frequently in western Pennsylvania. He suggests there may be a correlation between Bigfoot sightings and UFO sightings as they often occur within days of each other in the same location. There have been reports of a “large, hairy creature” seen carrying a globe shaped light.

Wherever UFO sightings and reports of Bigfoot occur in the region, Gordon is often on the scene, investigating these strange phenomena.

If you feel you have seen something that cannot be explained, contact Stan Gordon via his hotline at 724-838-7768 or by email at
