Go Back Report # 608


       In October 1983 we were swamped by sightings of mysterious green lights darting above the forest. These eerie glows were so common that the locals treated them as part of the environment. Some blamed Bawdsey. Typical was the sighting of three fishermen by the coast at Sizewell, a small village just north of Orford Ness and close by where Gordon Levett first encountered the UFO in 1980 (an object he saw glowing with a faint green phosphorescence, as you may recall). The three fishermen observed a large ball formed out of greenish and yellowish masses that appeared in the sky above them on the evening of 7 October. It then grew very bright and faded away. One of these men had a second encounter at 05.30 on 15 October when a green blob of light appeared in the sky and fell slowly towards the surface of the sea--plunging into the waves and disappearing beneath the surface, still glowing.

       Such observations continued into November 1983, when the crew of a fishing boat reported encountering an almost identical "green fireball" off the coast by Felixstowe. It behaved entirely unlike a meteorite.
