The Binary Codes

In 2010 it was revealed by Jim Penniston that he initiated a download of information when he touched the pictorial glyphs on the craft of unknown origin during his investigation in the early morning hours of December 26th, 1980, in Rendlesham Forest.

Background on how the binary code was received and revealed:

26 year old Sgt. James Penniston was part of the three man USAF Security Police team called to investigate the landed craft of unknown origin in Rendlesham Forest. The men with Sgt. Penniston, were A1C John Burroughs and A1C Ed Cabansag.  Only Penniston and Burroughs went into the woods to investigate the landed craft, Cabansag stayed near the truck as a radio relay for the men.

Cabansag watched the mysterious pulsating multicolored lights in forest, while his two team members headed out on foot. As Penniston and Burroughs approached the unusual lights, they noticed abnormal sensations on their hair, skin and clothing. It seemed as though the air was electrically charged. Also, a time distortion occurred. According to the men, time seemed as though is slowed and it was difficult to move. Another odd characteristic, was everything was void of sound.

Now visable, the craft was sitting silently at the bottom of a berm, on the pine forest floor. Penniston cautiously approached the non aero dynamic, triangular, black, glassy craft.  It was like nothing he had ever witnessed before or since. The craft had patterns of blue, yellow and red colors running through the surface as though part of the craft. It was very difficult to put into words what he was witnessing. Sgt. Penniston was versed in all types of aircraft, He was a United States Air Force trained aircraft observer and crash investigator.  As part of his USAF advanced training he studied both the NATO and WARSAW PACT inventories of aircraft.

His up-close investigation of the craft included photographs, measurements and drawings, which he recorded into his USAF issued notebook. He took special note of the strange pictorial type markings on the side of the craft.
These glyphs were logged by Sgt. Penniston (see picture below).


He also touched pictorial symbols etched onto the glasslike surface of the (9 foot by 9 foot ) black triangular craft.

When Sgt. Penniston put his hand on the etched symbols, which felt like sandpaper compared to the rest of the smooth molded surface, everything became a brilliant bright white. He could neither see nor hear.  He was alone in a brilliant bright white light.   

This occurred for an undetermined amount of time then his sight returned.  He was standing next to the craft,  facing the pictorial glyphs. The craft started to turn a vivid bright white color. So bright in fact, Sgt. Penniston thought it was going to explode. He took a defensive position nearby as the craft was engulfed in the light. The craft then lifted off approximately four feet from the ground, maneuvered between the trees, ascended to tree top level and disappeared in the blink of an eye.

The following day after touching the main (largest) glyph:

The following day, back in his room Jim was "seeing" ones and zeros (1's and 0's) in his minds eye.  Troubled by the revolving flashing images of ones and zeros he received from touching the glyphs, he felt compelled to write them down in a notebook.  Jim records the ones and zeros in his notebook.

Upon completing the transfer to notebook paper, the image in his mind disappears.  Jim puts the notebook away with his belongings and doesn’t think too much about again until the year 2010.  In 2010, during a casual conversation with a researcher, he mentions the codes and displays the notebook.  The researcher immediately recognizes the ones and zeros as binary code and sets out to help Jim decipher it.
