The Rendlesham Forest Incident of December 1980, is considered by far the most significant event in UFO history. It was also a unique military-related event, having taken place in Rendlesham Forest just outside the twin bases of RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge in Suffolk, England – both of which had been transferred to the United States Air Force in 1951 by the British MOD (Ministry of Defence), becoming one of the largest and most important NATO complexes in Europe during the Cold War.

The account given in this book is that of James W. Penniston, a Staff Sergeant at the time of the incident, who was the primary witness who led the investigation in the beginning and had ‘Top-Secret clearance’ – one of only eight people with Top-Secret clearance working Security at the twin bases.

His credibility and honesty were highly respected throughout his years in the USAF. Jim Penniston has teamed-up with author Gary Osborn to present the definitive account of the Rendlesham Incident and the aftermath of events, just as he witnessed and experienced them from the incident itself, which began during the early morning hours of Boxing Day, December 26, 1980 up to April 2014.


Ssgt. James Penniston is returning back to Rockford!

He is the famous for the Rendlesham Forest incident

Rockford Scanner™: Suspects Vandalize A Local Store, Possible New Trend




Sources are reporting that a local store was vandalized on Sunday afternoon.

Three females allegedly went into the gas station at S Alpine and Linden on Sunday afternoon. They destroyed many items in the store.

Then they ran away laughing about what they had just done.

Sources said the police have video of the incident and also the suspects license plate number, but sources said the police were not interested in investigating this case.  Just took the report on it.

The employee that was working was highly distraught and crying.

This is the 13th incident we have heard about in the last few months, about something similar happening in other local stores as well. It seems to be a trend locally, because of how often it happens.

We have asked the police in the past about these incidents, and they refused to comment on the incidents.

ROCKFORD PARANORMAL EXPERIENCE: Local Bowling Alley Haunted? Here A Ghostly Experience From An Employee!




Share your paranormal experiences with us! RockfordScanner@gmail.com 

The following was sent to us when we asked to hear your paranormal experiences.  Sit down and grab a drink. Here is the first of many paranormal experience stories that we are going to be posting in the future!

Source sent us the following in reference to their paranormal experience at a local bowling alley.

“I’m a mechanic at The Cherry Bowl (bowling alley) and I swear the back is haunted.

A lot of people have seen shadows and it’s very common to think someone is back there with you when there isnt. A few people think its because the one side wall is a giant painted ouija board on pegboard that we use to organize our marquee letters.

My most “wtf” moment was when I had a problem with a pair of lanes close to the ouija board wall. I pulled a chair close to the lanes to sit by them and monitor the problem.

It was a Saturday night and we had cosmic going on. I looked down at my phone to check the time. It was 11:11, I looked back up to the machines and I heard a creepy voice whisper my name in my ear.

I was leaning up against a stack of plywood/old doors and mechanics usually work alone. I was by the door to go up front so there was nobody that could’ve snuck back there without me knowing.

I said screw the lanes and went up front for the rest of the night (we close at midnight). There’s also an entry way off the mechanics area that goes back towards the staff bathroom and fridge.

If the lights aren’t on in that area and you walk by at night it sometimes gives you a heavy dread feeling……we usually keep that door closed now.

I make jokes about it being the souls of former employees whose hopes and dreams died there lol”

Note: For obvious reasons the stories told are from people that had an alleged paranormal experience and sent it to us and the story can not be confirmed.

Also it is .99 days this weekend at the bowling alley!  Stop on in there and have fun and if you have a paranormal experience there, let us know! 

We look forward to hearing your paranormal experiences!
