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?
I think you are getting into multiplication of hypotheses now.
...........there is only one high-tech civilization in the Galaxy at present, and we are it.
Well, something strange WAS going on.
Halt was called in at 01:00 because some of his armed men had been running out of the woods, scared by a strange arrangement of lights in a yellow ground fog with enough static in the air to make the hair below their hats stand up.
Halt himself is NOT impressed by the indentations (‘is that all the bigger they are?’).
HALT: We found a small blast – what looks like a blasted or scruffed-up area here. We’re getting very positive readings. Let’s see, is that near the centre?
He also does NOT make a big deal about the abrasions on the tree (‘it looks like it may be old’).
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?
HALT: Let me see that....that’s got a funny...that’s... You’re right about the abrasion. I’ve never seen a tree that’s er...
... never seen a pine tree that’s been damaged react that fast.
HALT: Have them cut it off, and include some of that sap and all...is between indentation two and three on a pine tree about five feet away, about three and a half feet off the ground.
HALT: You’re getting readings on the tree you’re taking samples from on the side facing the suspected landing site.
HALT: Same place where the spot is, we’re getting a heat...
HALT: Three trees in the area, immediately adjacent to the site, within ten feet of the suspected landing site, we’re picking up heat reflection off the trees.
Not heat. The starscope was an image intensifier, not an infrared device, so it was simply amplifying small differences in brightness.
However - if it was a cast of something which landed, as Penniston claims, then this craft continued to return for at least a couple of days. Where did it go between Christmas night and Halt's night out?
So it's either a cast of :
i) One of a multitude of animal scrapings in Rendlesham Forest.
ii) A genuine craft landing of unknown origin that could possibly have landed more than once in Rendlesham Forest.
What’s more, on none of the nights was anything seen to take off. I know that Penniston claims that it did, but he is the only one........
Not strictly true as Gerry Harris, a civilian witness, claims to have seen something ascending from the forest and disappear in a flash on the first night.
Even if you dismiss him as as simple yokel having enjoyed a bit too much Christmas spirit things do happen without anyone being there to see it.

This case is so complicated that even some of the witnesses are not sure what happened.
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.
Colonel Halt may well have mistaken the lighthouse/lightship once he got to the farmers field. However we are told that a group of USAF Personnel were out in the forest before him. What triggered their intervention? Were they simply curious or messing about off base and then got so spooked that they reported it to Halt? There was no fireball, meteor or satellite coming down on that night so what was going on to kick start things?
Then we have the more outlandish tales by Larry Warren and Adrian Bustinza of a strange craft landing (we'll leave Jim Penniston out of this for now )which remain unexplained at present other than taking the easy option that they are liars.. I am unsure what Bustinza would have ever got out of going on the record when he has seldom given interviews. But he was there on the night Halt was out there and there is a massive gap in their stories.
As for Larry Warren, well his story could be a work of fiction but no one has ever proven it beyond doubt.
Georgina revealed that following a recent telephone conversation with Adrian Bustinza she felt she owed Larry Warren an apology as Adrian had confirmed to her Larry Warrens version of events as factual also confirming there WERE three alien beings with the craft.
Taking into account her treatment of Larry in her newly published book she was booed by many of the 800 audience.
Georgina continued that there were now five new written statements by USAF personnel confirming that the incident did occur as reported and these new witness reports confirm that they saw ALIEN HUMANOIDS inside the craft that landed in Rendlesham forest.”
How likely is it that animal scrapes would be randomly placed or made in a triangle equal distances apart?
So Battram and his patrol did see lights in the sky that night.
And it’s another Rendlesham myth that the marks at the supposed landing site were symmetrically placed. They weren’t.
Vince the forester actually sketched the triangle, with dimensions. Vince noted that the three sides were not equal and the three indentations themselves were not symmetrical either. You can see his sketch and read his comments here, along with photos of the site and the marks:
As we can see from the photos, the marks look just like rabbit diggings, as concluded by the local police and Vince himself.
