CHAPTER FORTY-THREE
UFOS AND ALIEN ABDUCTIONS

CHRIS RUTKOWSKI

Many books and articles have been published since the late eighties regarding the alleged abduction of people by space aliens. The abduction “phenomenon” began with the appearance of early books such as Communion by Whitley Strieber and Intruders by Budd Hopkins. After these were published, both writers were on television talk shows discussing their theories, and OMNI magazine even conducted a readers’ survey to find out how many people have had their own such experiences. There is some evidence to indicate that many hundreds of people believe that they have had abduction experiences, with stories ranging from visitations in witnesses’ homes to the actual transporting of witnesses to places that are literally “out of this world.”

The first alleged UFO abduction studied in great detail occurred in 1961. Barney and Betty Hill were driving home from a vacation in Canada and were travelling through the White Mountains of New Hampshire when they saw a strange light in the sky. Barney stopped the car to observe it better, and as they looked at it he thought he could see details on the object hovering in the sky. They continued on homeward, but at one point they both heard an odd beeping sound. Shortly, they realized that it had taken them longer than expected to reach their destination and were missing about two hours from their journey.

Later, Betty started having nightmares and dreams about the experience, and she shared her memories of the dreams with her husband.
