It is easy to know if the genuine item was handed over : is it A5 780 pages with a white cover and. a black triangle flying out of a yellow mist. If no, it is a fake. Simple!
I know from your posts on the old forum at Rendlesham-Incident.co.uk in a thread entitled “Bustinza phone interview,20 april 1984” and another thread entitled “May 2010 Transcript of Col Halt tape “ that you sold your book at a loss at best (and gave some copies away, including to Sacha Christie) due to the costs of self-publishing and the cost of your research. You also said that “to avoid any further smear of being a money maker on the back of this subject, I am going to withdraw rights from the publisher in an email this morning. It's dead and gone! And so am I, that's it!” - so I will not ask if you have any plans to have the second edition printed and sold commercially.
witnesses frequently indicate that the UFO itself was luminous. As distinguished from a wide variety of white or colored lights that are reportedly attached to UFOs, light is observed radiating from the entire object or its immediate vicinity. Occasional references to "sparks" immediately suggest that some kind of electrical phenomenon is involved.
Very common descriptions such as "surrounded with a red glow" and "wrapped in a blue haze" clearly indicate that the source of UFO luminosity is not the object itself but the proximate air.
Apart from the diffuse luminosity, UFOs are frequently observed to carry ordinary "navigation" lights. One of the most common features is a prominent light on the top which may be of any color, either steady or flashing. Other lights are sometimes distributed over the surface, typically at the ends of elongated objects or along the periphery and on the bottom of discs. This display has been aptly compared to a "Christmas tree."
Another type of illumination less common than surface lights consists of one or more powerful beams resembling search lights. They are used for scanning the countryside, pointing directly downward or upward, or at houses and vehicles.
A favorite posture of UFOs is to hang nearly motionless in the sky or at very low altitude without any indication of how this stunt is achieved.
Nearly every investigator has the impression that UFOs are somehow defeating gravity, and obviously, they are.
One of the most prominent but puzzling features of UFOs is their ability to change speed and direction of flight much more quickly than is possible for an airplane. Instead of making long, sweeping curves as a jetliner is compelled to do, they make sudden, nearly right-angle turns. Their general flight pattern is erratic or jerky, resembling the flight of hummingbirds, that dart hither and yon, hover temporarily, suddenly change altitude, and then zoom out of sight with astonishing swiftness.
out of print does not mean out of copyright
The solution to that one (and many other questions) is in the timeline you posted earlier:
Halt’s memo to the MOD mentions a sighting of the object near the back gate (East Gate) about an hour after Penniston, Burroughs, and Cabansag were send out to investigate:
“The object was briefly sighted approximately an hour later near the back gate.“ [Halt, official memo to MOD]
Jerry Valdez, who joined a team that went to East Gate to check out the situation, remembers seeing the object near the East Gate:
“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. It made no noise, but it defied gravity. It was really weird and scary. We all knew what we were looking at, but no one really came out and said it.” [Valdez, James Easton interview]
We kept searching the area -- kind of like trying to follow the object. And it was moving through the trees. And in the process, we came upon a yellow mist about 2-or-3 feet off the ground.
LT COL HALT: Right I, he's turned the meter off. Better say that again, About four feet off the ground, about a hundred and ten degrees, getting the reading of about four clicks?
SGT NEVELS: Yes sir.
LT COL HALT: Yeah but. .
SGT NEVELS: [Sneeze] excuse me, now it's died.
LT COL HALT: Now it’s died, I think it's something not on the ground. I think it's something that's...something very large.
LT COL HALT: There is no doubt about it, there's some type of strange flashing red light ahead.
LT ENGLUND: Yeah, it's yellow [talking in the background about the mist].
LT COL HALT: I saw a yellow tinge in it too [responding to Englund]. Weird. It appears to be making a little bit this way?
SGT NEVELS: Yes sir.
LT COL HALT: It's brighter than it has been
SGT NEVELS: Yellow? [Responding to the remarks about the mist]
