“A strange message for humanity came from the year 8100”
In the late 1980s, on Christmas Eve, unexplained lights appear in the skies over Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England. The events take place outside RAF Woodbridge, used at the time by the United States Air Force (USAF).
Many people, dozens can be said, belonging to the USAF witnessed these strange events for two or three days.
This peculiarity is precisely what reinforces the credibility of this incident, as there were many witnesses who attested to what happened, and not only civilian witnesses, but also military witnesses.
The scene of events: Rendlesham Forest
Rendlesham Forest or Rendlesham Forest in Spanish is owned by the Forestry Commission and comprises about 5.8 square miles of land, it is located in County Suffolk, approximately 8 miles (or 13 km) east of the city of Ipswich.
At that time, in the area to the north of the forest there were two military bases, which were being occupied by the United States Air Force (a curious case).
Threat to National Security?: The Government Said No, But That Wasn’t a Disguised Yes
That country’s Ministry of Defense denied the possibility that these events could become a threat to national security.
However, some time later, abundant and important evidence was found indicating that the Ministry of Defense was actually very interested in investigating these events and went beyond what we all expected.
Strange Things Happen in Rendlesham Forest
On 26 December, around 3am, strange lights were reported by a security patrol near the East Gate of RAF Woodbridge (Royal Air Force Station Woodbridge).
Those present initially thought the reported lights were a downed plane; however, some of them, after entering the forest to investigate, saw lights moving between the trees and were also able to appreciate the light emitted by a larger object that was identified as a UFO.
A soldier encounters a strange ship: the delivery of the message
One of the soldiers present that night in the forest, named James W. Penniston, finds a ship of unknown origin – as he narrates -; The ship was on the surface and in a state of rest, so Sergeant Penniston did not hesitate to board it.
Minutes later, when Penniston was beside the ship, he decided to touch it. Penniston could feel a sensation of heat after making contact with the object, and he was also able to see a series of symbols, which he was able to write on his body, according to what he said.
Sometime later, Penniston would realize that this was not all that had happened, and he would also find a message planted in his mind.
The craft supposedly ascended after this brief encounter, and Penniston was then able to see the object’s triangular landing gear, which left three impressions on the ground, which remained visible until the next day.
Some time later, in the year 1984, Penniston undergoes a hypnotic regression, and among what he could remember, he stated that the spaceship he found came from the future, and that it was occupied by time travelers, not aliens. as many assumed.
Note that this incident does not appear in copies of the sergeant’s reports, reports that are presumed to have been delivered to his superiors.
The next day… they try to cover up the evidence
In the early morning of December 26, local police were called to the site of the alleged encounter between Penniston and the unknown craft, finding the same contrails that the sergeant claimed were produced by the craft’s triangular landing gear.
Police report that these marks may have been caused by an animal. People in the area also claimed that their barnyard animals behaved strangely that night.
Some airmen at the air base, on the other hand, claimed to have seen a conical metallic object, which was suspended in a yellow mist, above the trees and with a pulsating blue circle.
The supposed object seemed aware of the presence of the planes and moved away from them – narrated the aviators – so they decided to follow and hunt it. Airmen report feeling dizzy when approaching the object.
It is assumed that these people were interrogated, threatened and forced to sign documents swearing to remain silent.
Some even said they were forced to sign a document stating that the UFO was a lighthouse. Other reports clarify that the military was forced to remain calm under the warning: “bullets are cheap”.
However, in 2008, Lieutenant Colonel Halt stated in an interview with the CNN news channel that until that day it had not been possible to declassify information about the incident.
James W. Penniston who witnessed the events of the day after Christmas in 1980, an event he says changed his life.
With a solid career in the United States Air Force, Penniston first joined in 1973, at age 18, after basic training, he was recruited into the Strategic Air Command (SAC) Elite Guard.
In 1980, he was assigned to the Tactical Fighter Wing and Security Police Squadron at Bentwaters Air Force Base.
It was there that he had his strange encounter. During his career, he received 27 military honors, as well as receiving a letter of thanks from the president. He retired in 1993.
The event he witnessed is widely known as the Rendlesham Affair. After about thirty years, Penniston spoke to an audience of about 300 people on “Back to Rendlesham Forest,” revealing that there was some previously unreleased information.
When Penniston had touched the unknown ship thirty years earlier, he’d had a kind of telepathic shock right in his mind. Images of ones and zeros, images in his mind, that didn’t disappear until he jotted them down later at home on a notepad he carried at the time.
It was some kind of binary code. Experts believe that there is no language more universal or easier to understand than mathematics (among beings who speak different languages) and therefore it would be likely that if an extraterrestrial civilization tried to communicate with humanity, it could use numbers.
Penniston never revealed this information, but comments that after the incident he did not stop dreaming about it and especially about the message he had received in binary code.
He never took the task of trying to decipher it due to his limited knowledge, so in October 2010 he entrusted 6 pages of his zeros and ones manuscripts to a computer programmer in the hopes that it could be translated into a meaningful sentence.
This is an image from Penniston’s notebook where he jotted down the received binary message:
The programmer transcribed all the binary code to his computer and after performing a simple conversion he got the following:
EXPLORATIONOHUMANITY6lÙÁ‰ ©&?#8216; É¡’©™Œ Ž?;UÐÓåI%9U=UMFORPLANETARYADVAN‰
:ª¤¨ †žžˆ’?39;‚¨Š†žœ¨’œ&?#170;ž¨ª¢§!±T ‘Q?220;
What can be extracted from:
Exploration of Humanity
13° 13’12.69? Inside
FOR ADVANCE (CE) PLANETARY
The message also contains some coordinates that correspond to an ancient island, now submerged, the island is called HY Brasil, which according to ancient Celtic legends, was home to a civilization thousands of years ahead of its time.
Searching google maps for the coordinates indicated in the message, we found this location:
Often at the bottom of the shallow sea traces or elevations can be seen that could make us think that an ancient island was present many centuries ago; however, in this case, no evidence of this can be found.
A slightly crazy idea, but one that we consider quite possible is: “Why think that there was an island in that place?
We could open our minds a little bit and make room for the idea that a floating mothership or an alien base could be positioned at these coordinates; and that did not sink, but rose…” What do you think?
