It has been exactly four decades since a mysterious object was encountered in Rendlesham Forest, England.
It's the UK's best known UFO case and even now, 40 years later, the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident continues to remain a topic of heated debate among UFO researchers.

The strangeness began on December 26th, 1980 when US servicemen stationed at RAF Woodbridge witnessed an unknown object descending into 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 into the woods to investigate.
What they saw that night would go on to haunt them for the rest of their lives.

"Our security team observed a light that looked like a large eye, red in color, moving through the trees," said Halt. "After a few minutes this object began dripping something that looked like molten metal. A short while later it broke into several smaller, white-colored objects which flew away in all directions."

Over the years there has been a great deal of debate over what the object could have been, with theories ranging from an extraterrestrial spacecraft to a nearby lighthouse.

Col Halt however has always remained adamant that what he had witnessed was no lighthouse.

To this day, no definitive explanation for the incident has ever been found.

Human became grey aliens.   humans are not going to evolve, they are devolving now.   This is the worst time ever to exist as a human.   But also might be the best time with what is coming very shortly.  Things are about to get mad, so keep watching the TV!!!

The story of William Webb Ellis is well known. A better analogy might be: People that like to watch rugby, or any other sport, live - can't do the same with quidditch

We need genetic research to understand how we can do stuff like cure cancer or expand the human life...and we needed advance technology for space travel or time travel
