Jenny noted she had referred to this in her book, 'From Out of the Blue'.Assuming Randles was correct, and there could be blue light(s) seen from the Orford Ness military research area...
It's arguably a mute point as to how and why the lights were able to be observed from east gate, as it was obviously possible.
However, during local researcher Robert McLean's meticulous investigations in 2000, he illustrated one example in correspondence:
"During the Forestry Commission walk, the Forester showed us an old map with details of the dates sections of the forest were planted. This section of forest was plated in the early 1920's and was nearly 60 years old when felled in January 1981. In 1980, the lighthouse would have been visible well into the forest as the ground slopes gradually up towards the west".
The, UFO was lost from sight not because it took off, merely that the lights would intermittently be visible, depending on the terrain at that precise moment.
If Burroughs could suddenly see the lights again near the farmer's house - where we know Orfordness lighthouse could be seen - it's simply that there was now a line of sight again.
Our UFO did not leap from the clearing, down by the farmer's house at all.
Burroughs could not determine an actual object, as there never was one.
Perceived, 'landing marks' in a triangle, gave rise to a triangular-shaped UFO
It had to be the size of a drone to both match those marks and fit in the clearing.
The reason why it would have been impossible for an object of the size depicted to have maneuvered through the trees, yet seemed to, is further explained.
Like those leapfrogging lights, it never actually happened.
Another factor which might have played a telling role was the ground fog, recorded in the base weather report, obtained by Ian Ridpath.
As we appreciate, this first night's events have often be subject to a conceivable resolution which hits a proverbial stumbling block.
This time though, have they been overcome?
Although every component may not fit perfectly and realistically could never be expected to, I have to presently assess, subject as always to revision if need be, that as Robert commented regarding his determination of the factual landing site, if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck...
As things stand, I would be comfortable ordering an orange sauce.
