UFO hunter Gary Heseltine will be hosting tours of Rendlesham Forest – the site of the UK’s most famous UFO incident.
Situated deep in the Suffolk countryside, the forest – which has become synonymous with the UFO phenomenon in the UK – will soon be hosting guided tours headed up by veteran UFO researcher Gary Heseltine who has also written a book on the subject entitled “Non-Human The Rendlesham Forest Incidents: 42 years of Denial.”
“The Rendlesham Forest incident has often been referred to as ‘Britain’s Roswell’, and in terms of its significance in UFO history the comparison is well made,” he wrote.
“However, I have to say that in many aspects the RFI, as it has become known, is very, very different in certain key areas.”
“After almost 14 years of public research into the RFI, I can think of no other case that has been subject of so much disinformation and damaging internal witness ‘political’ infighting.”
The incident itself 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.
