Col Charles Halt has revealed that radar operators had tracked a bogie at the time of the incident.
It's the UK's best known UFO case and even now, more than 35 years later, investigations are still being carried out in the hope of determining exactly what happened.

The strangeness began on December 26th when US servicemen stationed at RAF Woodbridge witnessed an unknown object descending in to the woods. Upon investigating they encountered a glowing metallic object which seemed to move through the trees as they approached. When they returned the next day they found three triangular impressions in the ground at the same spot.

On December 28th the object appeared a second time, prompting deputy base commander Lt Col Charles Halt and a group of servicemen to venture out in to the woods to investigate.

What they saw that night was well documented thanks to Halt's micro-cassette voice recording - a bizarre light show that was witnessed by the men for several minutes before disappearing.
While there has been a great deal of controversy and skepticism surrounding the incident it still continues to intrigue and all the men involved are adamant about what they had seen.

Now further evidence has been revealed in the form of statements from nearby radar operators confirming that an unidentified object had been picked up at the time of the incident.

"[They] saw the object go across their 60 mile (96km) scope in two or three seconds, thousands of miles an hour, he came back across their scope again, stopped near the water tower, they watched it and observed it go into the forest where we were," said Col Halt.

"At Wattisham, they picked up what they called a 'bogie' and lost it near Rendlesham Forest. Whatever was there was clearly under intelligent control."

What the object was and where it had come from however continues to remain a mystery.

Yes. But when a witness recounts an object the size of a star.., on the horizon, stationary, multiple colours flashing.., we can easily identify this as scintillation. But when a desription does not match characteristics of any known object.., then that is of interest. Oh wow.., really? I guess its not a priority for pilots. Surely you had night familiarisation training? NAVY ships, I would assume yes. They would need to know how to navigate via the stars. Us rifleman used to make fun of you "fly boys" all safe and protected up there, while we spend most of our timelearning to survive, and na... [More]

I can only find 2 instances of the word "watch" in the tran., none referring to a light. Yea, you and me both. I gotta stop debating individual cases from the past.; Not the way forward. Best case scenario.., its just gonna be inconclusive.

He even calls the lighthouse a beam of yellow light. From my understanding, loggers mark trees with paint. They were also getting a "definite heat reflection off the tree" marks.

Maybe you can help explain why?

Why would they? The lighthouse was on the coast. Most servicemen never left the base. And it would have been seen through gaps in the trees, maybe only visible from certain spots For those who have lived there, it remains a plausible explanation (though not saying it is the explanation) (My parents ran the nearest pub to Bentwaters, the Green Man at Tunstall, taking over in 1982. I was a teenager then. I only heard of the supposed UFO years later ..... It has always intrigued me that no-one local ever knew nor talked about the event. I knew the forest well and frequented all the local... [More]

Its just something that we do. When moving to any new area.., we study maps and look at surrounding objects. They were aware of the farmhouse for example.., and can use these as reference points (which they did). Its possible they didn't do this regarding th lighthouse.., I just wonder why. And doubt they wouldn't have known personally. Are you sure it would have been seen through gaps in the trees? This photo shows the lights from the edge of the forest, which had been cleared. Now look how thick the bush really is. Anyone who has been in the forest at night time can tell you, that light is b... [More]

I had far more night traps than I wanted. Don't forget the warm bed every night and three squares a day. I never said that, I said they may have confused them, easy to do looking through the trees. Ian Redpath and the BBC recorded the lighthouse at night, you can watch the video at the linked site. See the video from the same position the troops saw it

Well lighthouse or not something did happen that night. You'd thought the airmen knew about the lighthouse as a visual marker for aircraft

They weren't aviators, they were enlisted guys working in a missile base and they didn't know about the lighthouse according to A1C Chris Arnold: There was absolutely nothing in the woods. We could see lights in the distance and it appeared unusual as it was a sweeping light, (we did not know about the lighthouse on the coast at the time). We also saw some strange colored lights in the distance but were unable to determine what they were... Contrary to what some people assert, at the time almost none of us knew there was a lighthouse at Orford Ness. Remember, the vast majority of folks involve... [More]

O rly? No rat packs for you? Damn, you missed out on Army chocolate that gives you diarrhoea, but can be balanced out with Army cheese that makes you constipated, lol.Fun times... Yea, I saw that. It is not a red light. As for the beams of light.., I am talking about real life experience seeing a lighthouse 50kms away, and still see the sweeping. Not a red blinking light. if I recorded it with my camera.., I'm sure that it would not pick up the sweeping beams I see with my naked eye, because they are too faint for the camera sensor to pick up. After the forest was cleared by this time accordi... [More]
