The Hill Abduction
Betty and Barney Hill were the first people to publicly state that they had been kidnapped by aliens. They believed they'd been taken aboard a spacecraft flown by small aliens with huge black slanted eyes and large heads. They remember being examined and operated on inside the craft by aliens.
The story goes (according to Betty and Barney) that on September 20, 1961 the couple drove back from a holiday in Niagara Falls (Canada) through the White Mountains (New Hampshire) and noticed a bright light following them. They stopped the car for a closer look. Using binoculars, Barney described the bright object as a coin-shaped craft with blue lighted windows along the edge. He also saw small figures running around. Barney remembers driving home but when they arrived they realized they were two hours late and didn't know why. They also noticed scuffs on Barney's shoes, strange stains and tears on Betty's dress and unusual marks on the car.
Days afterwards, Betty started having disturbing dreams about being abducted by aliens. The couple decided to be hypnotized so they could figure out what happened on that September night. While hypnotized, both of them said a craft had landed on the ground in front of their car, causing the engine to stall. Then the car was surrounded by small figures that took them inside the craft. Inside, they were examined and samples were taken from their bodies. Before leaving the craft Betty was shown an image of a star that she later identified as the Zeta Reticuli star system. Apparently, this is where the beings were from.
What do you think? Was this the first alien abduction or were the couple watching too many sci-fi
