They say at some point that the lights are moving, one to the left and the other one to the right and I cannot imagine myself that a lighthouse could do that?

There are a number of ways to misperceive or interpret any given light source in the middle of the night in the pitch black woods.
There were many whispers in the forest straight after the incident mostly about a burnt area. But one of the things that’s quite important when you’ve got very few facts is that there was no crash site. …I don’t believe anything crashed in the forest......
At the time it was really exciting. Straight after the event I was out chopping wood one morning , a car pulled up two young men get out, English wearing suits, very polite asking me if I’d been out as there’d been a report of red lights in the forest.
Had I seen anything? No .And then they went and I thought they were reporters, something will come out …..in the East Anglia Daily Times and nothing did and I thought I wonder who they were?
I later found out they’d been visiting everybody. Now the critical things about this, is this is weeks before the Colonel Halt memo. So quietly somebody was looking into this immediately afterwards and they were British, long before the Halt memo, long before the rumours got going.
It’s even more difficult to perceive or interpret it when you aren’t even there yourself. And you must also take into account that Halt was not alone when he saw it all.
It is startling to realize that some of our most cherished memories may never have happened—or may have happened to someone else
In fact the blue lights and red lights are often ignored or always explained as people mistaking twinkling stars. Is there any astronomers' video of red and blue stars twinkling, that drip like molten metal etc. that could back this up? Perhaps there is and it would be interesting to see as it may well get very close to sealing this case off.
I think he did both. There were some reasons for a 'heightened sense', but when he arrived and found a lot of personnel running around he really wanted nothing more than to ‘put this to rest’. You can hear his agitation at the start of the tape, when they are investigating the indentations (“What are the impressions? Is that all the bigger they are?”), but he gets more interested as they find more traces.
HALT: There’s a round abrasion on the tree about three and a half, four inches in diameter...it looks like it might be old, but, er...strange, there’s a crystalline...pine sap that has come out that fast. You say there was other trees here that are damaged in a similar fashion?
ENGLUND: Yes, all facing in toward the centre of the landing site...
HALT: ...side facing the...interesting. The indentations look like something twisted as it dropped... you know, as it sat down on them. Looks like someone took something and sat it down and twisted it from side to side. Very strange.
Unless, that is, there was some EM factor--deliberate or geomagnetic--which put our players in some altered state. Then things--as we know empirically--can get very wiggy.
Though its possible that there was some form of "EM factor", In this case, I am only hearing about some lights moving around. Someone on some stims could easily chase a lighthouse around in my opinion.

In fact the blue lights and red lights are often ignored ....
...... On the recording, Halt is the only one to describe the first light as red and then later having a "yellow tinge ". Others say it is flat out Yellow.
“On the night of 25-26 Dec at around 3:00, while on patrol down at East Gate, myself and my partner saw lights coming from the woods due east of the gate. The lights were red and blue, the red one above the blue one, and they were flashing on and off. Because I've never seen anything like that coming from the woods before we decided to drive down and see what it was. We went down east-gate road and took a right at the stop sign and drove about 10-20 yards to where there is a road that goes into the forest. I could see a white light shining into the trees and I could still see the red and blue one.”
John Burroughs original witness statement
“A large yellow glowing light was emitting above the trees. In the centre of the lighted area directly in the centre ground level, there was red light blinking on and off 5 to 10 second intervals. And a blue light that was being for the most part steady. After receiving permission from CSC, we proceeded off base pass east gate, down an old logging road.”
Jim Penniston original witness statement
“While we walked, each one of us would see the lights. Blue, red, white, and yellow. The beacon light turned out to be the yellow light. We would see them periodically, but not In a specific pattern.”
Ed Cabansag original witness statement
“I could clearly see the lights from the gate, just outside the back gate [east gate]. It was next to the road. They were intermittent lights, very bright, 15-20 feet above the ground. They were pulsating and from what I recall there were 3 lights, red green and blue.”
Geraldo Valdes-Sanchez interview with James Easton - ‘Pulsar Newsletter no.4” 1999
I think it shows Halt's mindset at the time. He was convinced even before seeing the light that something "strange"(his word) was going on.

But Jim Penniston, allegedly, went out and made plaster casts of the indentations left by the craft. So maybe there was more than one landing site?

And if this 'craft' or indeed crafts (if they ever existed) had been around for a few days is it not possible that something could have landed in a number of locations in the forest?
