... he is also big on the Ian ridpath( lighthouse explains everything theory)...
One more point is the two daylight visits by Suffolk police on Xmas Day morning and Boxing Day. If they had attended during night-time hours, would they have been just as startled as forest resident/employee Vince Thurkettle was when he was first confused by the powerful effects of the lighthouse beams....

The answer is no they weren't. The Police attended in the "early hours of the morning" of Boxing Day around 04:30am when it was still dark. The only lights they could see were those from the Orfordness Lighthouse as per their report.
There were some chips on the trees, but it wasn't the impact of anything. It was a guy called Bill Briggs who'd marked the trees to be felled. I went from extreme excitement that I was going to experience close encounters to extreme disappointment that everything I was seeing could be explained by normal forestry and wood craft.
... we are in a part of the forest with the amazing coincidence that Orford Ness lighthouse's beam shines into these woods... and it was a brilliant pulsing light, which looked as if it was in the trees. That's a fact. Whether the airman were fooled by the beam, or whether they knew it was there and ignored it, that's been a point of debate ever since.
Rendlesham will live and live. It's reckoned to be the second biggest UFO incident in the world and people love mysteries. Whatever happened here 25 years ago, something happened enough to make strong and intelligent men scared and write letters. So I think this is going to run and run. The mystery is embedded in our mythology now.
