Summary "Over a series of three nights in December 1980 an extraordinary series of UFO incidents took place in Rendlesham Forest in the UK, next to two United States Air Force bases. This was not some vague sighting of lights in the sky, but a controlled landing and take-off. The UFO was tracked on military radar and left physical evidence at the landing site, including damage and scorch marks on the trees, indentations in the frozen ground, and abnormally high levels of radiation. The UFO was seen by dozens of military witnesses, including the deputy base commander. The object fired light beams at some of the men and, later, into the weapons-storage area, where some military personnel based there at the time allege that nuclear weapons were kept. Encounter in Rendlesham Forest tells the extraordinary story of the world's most compelling and best-evidenced UFO incident--a case that is more significant than the infamous Roswell incident"--Dust jacket.
