Alleged UFO landing in UK will be commemorated by a UFO, which will mark the spot in one of the biggest UFO mysteries in the nation.
There were many reports in December 1980 about the phenomena in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk near a U.S. Air Force base.
A metal interpretation of a UFO has been created by the Forestry Commission to add to its trail that marks the apparent sightings.
According to the commission, the sculpture was impartial and did intend to look for answers on the mystery.
On the early hours of December 26, 1980, the Rendlesham Incident happened and lasted for three nights.
Among the witnesses of the lights were two U.S. servicemen who said that they have observed the lights outside the perimeter fence at RAF Woodbridge.
Conflicting stories and theories have been circulating in many books and internet sites since then. Some believe that it was an alien visitation, others think it was a military aircraft, and there are those who believe that it was a beam from Orfordness Lighthouse or natural phenomena.
In 2005, the Forestry Commission started to open a UFO Trail and put three logs in a clearing where witnesses claimed the landing area of the UFO. It was on the same area the UFO reportedly disappeared.
The new UFO is planned to be put in the same clearing.
Rendlesham Forest recreation manager, Nigel Turner, believes that something happened, but they respect all opinions as some believe it was something military and others think it was extraterrestrial activity.
Turner said that that the UFO trail does not only give people something to complete, but also does help in giving insight to people about their timber-growing and conversation work.
The UFO sculpture was designed by Olivia English who said that it was inspired on one of the sketches by the servicemen and other depictions of sightings in the forest.
She said that the design is primarily about finding a middle ground and remaining impartial while making an interpretation.
She further revealed that the symbols found on the side of the UFO were originally part of the trail, but they’ve recycled them to create an additional dimension. She clarified that there’s no secret code, just art.
