During a family vacation, Mrs McRoberts saw "a cloud over a mountaintop, suggestive of a smoking volcano" and snapped a photo of it.
These lights have been attributed by astronomers to a piece of natural debris seen burning up as a fireball over southern England at that time. As they attempted to approach the object, it appeared to move through the trees, and "the animals on a nearby farm went into a frenzy".
One of the servicemen, Sergeant Jim Penniston, later claimed to have encountered a "craft of unknown origin" while in the forest, although there was no publicized mention of this at the time and there is no corroboration from other witnesses.
Although they recorded 0.
It was during this investigation that a flashing light was seen across the field to the east, almost in line with a farmhouse, as the witnesses had seen on the first night.
The Orford Ness lighthouse is visible further to the east in the same line of sight see below. Halt said that the brightest of these hovered for two to three hours and seemed to beam down a stream of light from time to time.
Astronomers have explained these starlike lights as bright stars. Map of local area The incident occurred in the vicinity of two former military bases: RAF Bentwaterswhich is just to the north of the forest, and RAF Woodbridge which extends into the forest from the west and is bounded by the forest on its northern and eastern edges.
The main events of the incident, including the supposed landing or landings, took place in the forest, which starts at the east end of the base runway or about 0.
The forest extends east about one mile 1. Orfordness Lighthousewhich sceptics identify as the flashing light seen off to the coast by the airmen, is along the same line of sight about 5 miles 8.
At that time it was one of the brightest lighthouses in the UK. The first piece of primary evidence to be made available to the public was a memorandum written by the deputy base commander, Lieutenant Colonel Charles I. Halt, to the Ministry of Defence MoD. Known as the "Halt memo", this was made publicly available in the United States under the U.
Freedom of Information Act in The two-week delay between the incident and the report might account for errors in the dates and times given. The memo was not classified in any way.
David Clarkea consultant to the National Archives, has investigated the background of this memo and the reaction to it at the MoD. His interviews with the personnel involved confirmed the cursory nature of the investigation made by the MoD, and failed to find any evidence for any other reports on the incident made by the USAF or UK apart from the Halt memo.
The tape has been transcribed by researcher Ian Ridpathwho includes a link to an audio download  and also a step-by-step analysis of the entire contents of the tape.
We would see a glowing near the beacon light, but as we got closer we found it to be a lit-up farmhouse. We got to a vantage point where we could determine that what we were chasing was only a beacon light off in the distance.
We followed it for about two miles [3 km] before we could [see] it was coming from a lighthouse. Such noise could have been made by Muntjac deer in the forest, which are known for their loud, shrill bark when alarmed.
Conrad also suggested that the entire incident might have been a hoax.
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, Conrad relates, it levitated six feet in the air and backed away.
He went into the forest and located a triangular pattern ostensibly made by the tripod legs. On the night of the initial incident they reported that the only lights visible were from the Orford lighthouse.
They attributed the indentations in the ground to animals. I know from personal experience that at night, in certain weather and cloud conditions, these beams were very pronounced and certainly caused strange visual effects.
However, when the file was released in it turned out to consist mostly of internal correspondence and responses to inquiries from the public. A white shield blocked the light from the town of Orford but not from the forest where the sighting occurred.
One proposed theory is that the incident was a hoax.Amazing Underwater UFO disclosure, without doubt the evidence suggests there is some strange creatures lurking in our waters. The files on the so called USOs – unidentified submersible objects – are still under lock and key at the Kremlin.
