......strange bursts of light in the 1980s attracted physicists, too, interest piqued by the idea of some unexplained natural phenomenon. In the decades since, they have determined the glow likely comes from air turned into plasma.
The unique geology of the valley could be responsible for this plasma. The valley is formed by rocks on one side rich in copper and the other rich in iron and zinc—not unlike the cathode and anode of a battery. Sulfuric acid, leached from the abandoned sulfur mine at the bottom of the valley, could then turn the river into the weak acid of an electrolyte. But where does the charge to energize plasma come from?
It may be extraterrestrial after all. The Hessdalen phenomenon seems especially common after a display of Northern Lights

They are most often of spherical shape, of different colours (mostly white), often of long duration (up to 30-60 min, spaced out by periods of “off” and “on” phases), and relatively large dimensions (1-10 meters).
When seen with the naked eye these light phenomena appear just like single occasionally “inflating” spheres, but upon more careful observation shows that they are composed of many secondary spheres whose appearance and disappearance cause the observed light pulsation effect.
Most phenomena that have been studied so far possess a spherical shape, but a few cases do exist in which other shapes have been encountered and where such a spherical shape changes into something else.
It can often happen that spheres of different colours (most often white, red and blue) coexist together in a static configuration.
Quite often the light phenomenon presents a radar track, and anomalous radar signatures also can be recorded when a luminous phenomenon is not in sight.
Many witnesses report that such phenomena very often tend to approach people and/or animals in a way that goes beyond a simple mechanism of electrostatic attraction.

“I believe the objects that I saw at close quarter were extraterrestrial in origin and that the security services of both the United States and the United Kingdom have attempted – both then and now – to subvert the significance of what occurred at Rendlesham forest and RAF Bentwaters by the use of well-practiced methods of disinformation.”

Colonel Halt's role in all of this is difficult to fathom out. Does he know a lot more than he has ever spoke about, is there a lot more of the Halt tape (even tapes) that has never been publicly released and did Halt manipulate the main witnesses? All of this has been alluded to at various times.
In late 1999 Halt admitted to me that he had four or five hours of tape, which I would never be allowed to hear.
According to radio presenter Lee Spiegel, Halt confided in him that he did not think the public were totally ready to hear all the facts about the case.
Bobby Ball and Ray Gulyas were both flight chiefs. Gulyas told me that Ball had briefed him on a daily basis as to what occurred in the forest. Although Ball never suggested that Gordon Williams was involved, he confirmed he was with Halt’s patrol on the third night and it was during this particular night that they saw an object. At first they tried to follow it as it moved through the trees, almost touching the ground. Then it landed!
I did drive Williams to an F-16 on the Bentwaters tarmac the a.m. of the 30th. He had two canisters of 35 mm footage with him, bagged in a TS [Top Secret] satchel. He told me directly that it was actual footage of the UFOs etc on the ground.
I was told by Halt when I met up with them that something landed the third night and by Bustinza also.
As far as Halt goes I stated that is what he told me when we met up on the third night. He never said what landed just something landed he then pointed up in the sky and showed me the blue lights that were flying around.
“As far as I am concerned, the entire (Rendlesham Forest) affair and evidence trail constitutes official, Top Secret confirmation that humanity is dealing with an intelligence capable of engineering interstellar travel.”

The 'stunning revelation' that MoD is with-holding six UFO policy files is a load of old cobblers. The names and titles of those files are contained in the papers released by the National Archives in 2012-13. Gary Anthony and I made FOI requests for these files way back in 2006.
MoD agreed to release them at that time and I have a complete copy of the DI55 UFO Policy file covering 1971-1996 sitting here on my desk. The 6 files will, however, be released during 2014.

I acted as an unpaid consultant for The National Archives for the UFO files release - NOTE: National Archives is not MoD - simply to ensure that a valuable archive of material was saved for posterity. I did it for nothing and I asked for nothing in return.

....The incident has taken on a life of its own. The facts have been twisted, numerous individuals have attempted to profit from it, and at least one wannabe had noisily come forward and collaborated on a book filled with disinformation. I should comment on all the book’s misleading comments and outright disinformation but will refrain from doing so here. The individuals originally involved in the first night/sighting have changed their story numerous times, to the point that one wonders what’s going on. ...
At least four individuals - the three that were involved in the initial sighting and a wannabe, according to them, were brought to the Office of Special Investigation (OSI) and “debriefed” with injected drugs and hypnotized by Special Agents.
They did not make me aware of this until several years later. If I had known then I would have gotten involved. I am convinced the purpose of the “debriefing” was to get the facts and to plant false memories. There’s no doubt the “debriefing” was a success. On one occasion, one of the individuals has taken me to the wrong “landing site” and made claims that were clearly wrong. For 20+ years I repeatedly saw a notebook from the incident that was supposedly made that night on scene. I never saw any binary codes in the book and there are several glaring errors with what’s now being shown as authentic.
......Yes, the incident really happened and I don’t have answers. A second story is what happened afterwards with US and British government agencies involved.
