He took me to the place where the airmen reported seeing flashing lights in the sky. There, we were greeted by the sight of the Orford Ness lighthouse a few miles away. Mr Ridpath was certain that this was what the witnesses to the mysterious lights in the forest were looking at. It is still there now - its light rotating every five seconds. "It's too good a story to allow to die. It's a combination of events which, when put together, sound inexplicable," he told me. "But when you look at them individually, the bright light flashing away across the field was the Orford Ness lighthouse; the bright lights that hovered in the sky for several hours were in fact bright stars." Mystery explained. It was an easy mistake for young Americans a long way from home to make.
A new Facebook group started by John Burroughs demands justice for all those involved in the Rendlesham forest incident. As well as raising peoples’ awareness of the case, it is hoped that the group will encourage new witnesses to come forward.
The group’s description is as follows: “In late December 1980 the fine men and women of the USAF 81st security were exposed to something unexplained in Rendlesham Forest. Their Command chain left them high and dry. We demand Justice for the 81st and we demand an explanation from the US government as to what they were exposed to. We demand the USAF release their classified files on the incident.”

"The UFOs back Sir": 27/28 December 1980 A night later the unusual lights were spotted again, the deputy base commander (Lt. Col. Halt) was alerted this time and decided to end the UFO 'nonsense'. He and others went out in search of the UFO, what they saw shocked them all
The lighthouse theory examined Could the Rendlesham incident be explained, by a lighthouse which sits on the coast, five miles away? Includes my footage of the lighthouse flashing
Surely, to any sensible person, either of those explanations cannot fail to be of defense interest. That the Colonel of an American Air Force Base in Suffolk and his military men are hallucinating when there are nuclear-armed aircraft on the base — this must be of defense interest.

Can't really dispute or support the close encounter accounts, but regarding the "Lighthouse theory", I'm pretty sure I saw the lighthouse caretaker in an interview explain [and show] how the light cannot shine in the direction of the forest due to a reflector behind the lamp.
