Here's a real-life mystery with Hollywood sci-fi overtones. In 1980, a team of U.S. Air Force men were sent into wooded areas near an American airbase in Britain to investigate reports of strange lights. Newly-released tapes recorded by the airmen reveal they witnessed the lights as well as inexplicable damage to the forest - and felt that whatever was causing the lights was moving toward them, as the forest became deathly still. The Telegraph of Britain reported the following regarding analysis of the tapes:
It is clear that they thought they were witnessing some type of phenomena, with descriptions of "strange" lights in sky and odd damage to pine trees 15ft to 18ft off the ground.
One of the Americans is heard to say: "I hear very strange sounds of farmers - barnyard animals. They're very, very active, making a lot of noise.
"Straight ahead. There it is again. Straight ahead. What is it? A strange small red light.
"It looks maybe half a mile further ahead. Go back to the edge of the clearing, see if we can get a look at it... the animals have gone quiet now... It is deathly calm."
He adds in hushed tones: "There is no doubt about it - it is a strange flashing red light ahead.
"I saw a yellow tinge in it too. Weird. It's coming this way. It's definitely coming this way.
"There is no doubt about it. This is weird."
