The Rendlesham UFO spoke in binary code
The Rendlesham Forest Incident is the name given to a series of reported sightings of unexplained lights and the alleged landing of a craft or multiple craft of unknown origin in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England in late December 1980, just outside of RAF Woodbridge, used at the time by the U.S. Air Force.
Dozens of USAF personnel were eyewitnesses to various events over a two or three day period. Some Ufologists believe it is perhaps the most famous UFO event to have happened in Britain, ranking amongst the best-known UFO events worldwide. Along with the Berwyn Mountain UFO incident, it has been compared to the Roswell UFO incident in the United States, and is sometimes referred to as “Britain’s Roswell”.
Now, some 30 years later, new evidence is brought forward by one of the key witnesses, Jim Penniston, who claims to have touched the alien craft and telepathically received mental images that he recorded in his Air Force notebook. The images contained ones and zeroes that didn’t make sense to Mr. Penniston at the time, and he kept the notebook hidden until October 2010.
On December 30, 2010, the new material was presented on an Ancient Aliens episode titled Alien Contacts, airing on The History Channel. The show’s producers had somehow found out about Mr. Penniston’s notebook and the strange code. They proceeded to contact computer developer Nick Ciske, who managed to decode parts of the coded message:
EXPLORATION [of] HUMANITY
52° 09′ 42.532″ N
13° 13′ 12.69″ W
FOR PLANETARY ADVAN [CE]
Now, this is where it gets interesting. We have a cryptic message and some navigational coordinates that points to — where? This is where it gets really interesting. 52″ 09′ 42.532 North, 13″ 13′ 12.69 West point to a geographical location west of Ireland.
This is the location of a mysterious sunken island known in Celtic legend as Hy Brazil. It was said to be the home of a civilization thousands of years ahead of its time. It is also occasionally referred to as “The other Atlantis”.
But what does this mean? Is there something of importance at this location? Was Hy Brazil real? I guess the only way to find out is to scan the sea floor and see if there is any shred of evidence of anything having ever been located there.
All this makes for a compelling case, but many questions remain unanswered.
Why was the code kept hidden for 30 years? Mr. Penniston says he feared to be kicked out of the Air Force if he told anyone about the mental images and the message he had written in his notebook. The video below was filmed during the conference where the new evidence was made public, and we can hear Mr. Penniston explain his reasoning.
But why now? And how did The History Channel and the producers of the Ancient Aliens show get involved? Some people have contacted the computer developer Nick Ciske about the full transcript of the codes, but he says the producers of the show have told him not to release it. Why the secrecy?
So as you can see, there are many questions but few answers about the new evidence in this case. I am sure we will hear much more about it in the coming weeks and I will cover it all here on UFOEYES. Stay tuned.
