Betty and Barney Hill were an average married couple abducted from a rural part of New Hampshire in September of 1960. They were driving home from a Niagara Falls vacation when Betty spotted a bright light in the sky. At first, they mistook the object for a plane, but as it descended closer to their car they realized it was an enormous rotating silent craft. Barney Hill compared it to a "huge pancake!" The craft approach close enough for Barney to observe it through his binoculars, spotting several humanoid figures in black uniforms. One figure communicated with Barney, apparently through telepathy, asking him to "stay where you are."
After arriving home, the Hills discovered that their watches had stopped, and they reported experiencing odd bodily sensations. They had lost time, as well, missing memory of approximately 35 miles of their drive. The hem of Betty's dress was torn, and the fronts of her shoes were inexplicably scuffed. The next day, they could see shiny concentric circles on the trunk of their car, which hadn't been there the day before!
Following the encounter, Betty had a series of vivid dreams of grey-skinned men in uniforms surrounding their car. These extraplanetary visitors seemed to interact with the Hills in a curious, but friendly way, communicating telepathically to the best of their ability. Betty's "star map" drawing has been connected to images of the Zeta Reticuli! I with I could see more of these materials of hers, and learn more about these visitors.
Do we have any forum members with ties to the University of New Hampshire? Most of Betty Hill's notes, tapes, and other archival materials are in the permanent collection there, and I would love a chance to peruse them. Any New Englanders want to help a gal out? Let me know!
