Often described as “Britain’s Roswell”, this famous case happened in Britain but it was at the site of an American Air Force nuclear base. Not too surprising as we know by now that ETs seem to be monitoring nuclear facilities very closely.
The incident occurred in the Rendlesham Forest, near two former military bases, RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge. Both bases were used by the United States Air Force.
December 26th 1980
It all started December 26th 1980 at 3 a.m. when mysterious lights appearing to descend into the forest were seen by guards near the East Gate of RAF Woodbridge.
Lieutenant Colonel Charles I. Halt sent a memo to the Ministry of Defence detailing what happen. He wrote that the guards first thought they had seen a downed aircraft but upon entering the woods to investigate further, they saw a bizarre , metallic object, glowing with colored lights. As they got closer, it moved away behind the trees. They could also animals go in a panic from the incident. The craft which was described as having a tripod base had left three prints in the ground which were still visible the next day. Burn marks and broken branches were also observed the next day where the UFO was seen.
In the early hours of December 28th, the deputy base commander Lt Col Charles I. Halt along with a number of servicemen returned to the landing spot again but this time with radiation detectors. Radiation was detected in the prints the UFO left. It is during this excursion in the forest that Halt and his men saw a flashing light across a field. Lights that resemble stars but that shot down a beam of light every now and then was also witnessed.
Another important testimonial in this case was from base commander was Colonel Ted Conrad. He was quoted in a 1983 OMNI article saying: “Each time the men came within 50 yards of the ship, it levitated six feet in the air and backed away. They followed it for almost an hour through the woods and across a field until it took off at phenomenal speed.” Colonel Conrad then investigated the landing site himself and saw a triangular pattern made by the tripod legs of the craft. He interviewed two witnesses declaring, ’Those lads saw something, but I don’t know what it was’.
Mysteriously, Colonel Ted Conrad now claims none of it ever happened and no one aside from Halt as ever witnessed anything.
Colonel Halt has claim that the British and US government are engaged in a cover up using disinformation and that Conrad has either memory problem or is now part of the cover up.
Amongst the skeptics are science writer Ian Redpath, Steuart Campbell and Jenny Randles who all claims with confidence that what these men all saw was a good mix of lights coming from the lighthouse at Orford Ness, a meteor, bright planets and a boat with a big light on it (lightvessel).
Well, ok, let’s compare those possibilities what what was actually described by the witnesses and see if they are possible matches.
This is what Colonel Halt described having seen by him and his men: “While in Rendlesham Forest, our security team observed a light that looked like a large eye, red in colour, moving through the trees. After a few minutes this object began dripping something that looked like molten metal. A short while later it broke into several smaller, white-coloured objects which flew away in all directions. Claims by sceptics that this was merely a sweeping beam from a distant lighthouse are unfounded; we could see the unknown light and the lighthouse simultaneously. The latter was 35 to 40-degrees off where all of this was happening.”
Base commander Colonel Ted Conrad said: “Two of the men tracked the object on foot and came upon a large tripod-mounted craft. It had no windows but was studded with brilliant red and blue lights. Each time the men came within 50 yards of the ship, it levitated six feet in the air and backed away.”
Does that sound like the description of a lighthouse to anyone? On what planet do those skeptics live?
Lord Hill-Norton who was Admiral of the Fleet and former Chief of the Defence Staff of the UK believes the version of Halt and his men and questioned many times the UK Government on why they don’t seem to think that the incident doesn’t represent a security risk for the country.
Another high profile believer is Nick Pope who famously worked for Britain Ministry Of Defence on a project investigating UFOs during the early 90′s.
In conclusion, the Rendlesham Forest incident remains today one of the most documented UFO case in the world and probably the most important in Britain’s history. Skeptics and believers still argue and the average person has a hard time figuring out who to believe.
