From an original article by B.J.Booth.

When I was but a young boy, the only time anyone talked about flying saucers was after
watching a movie about them, or seeing an episode of Twilight Zone, or Science Fiction
Theater. Then one morning, I was scanning over our local newspaper, and noticed about
three pages deep this heading, "New Hampshire Couple Encounters UFO."
Well, needless to say, I was intrigued. In our small town paper, you just didn't see things on
this type of subject.
As I began to read the article, I was astounded to see that these two people claimed to
have been abducted by aliens, and taken inside the ship!

Well, that was enough for me to think, "What is this, some kind of joke?"

I thought I had heard the last of it, but I had not. Soon, this story became an international
one, and even today, is still considered one of the most believable, and certainly most
researched UFO cases, except for maybe the Roswell incident. One thing about this whole
subject that seems odd to me, is that it is considered within the realm of possibility that
someone could see a UFO, but for someone to be taken aboard one, NO WAY.

In my research into Mr. Hill's life, I can't find any reason for his stress being the cause of
telling such an incredible st6ory. What ensued after the couple went public with their story
was much more stressful to him than any anti-racial remarks he may have encountered.
The story of Betty and Barney Hill begins in September 1961, in the state of New
Hampshire. Barney had recently developed an ulcer, and he and his wife Betty decided to
take a short vacation to Canada. The couple had visited Niagara Falls, and Montreal, and
on the 19th of the month, they began their journey back home to Portsmouth.
The night was clear, with a crescent moon shining on the heavily wooded landscape that
surrounded US Route 3 in the central part of New Hampshire.

At about a quarter past 10:00 PM, three miles south of the city of Lancaster, Barney
noticed what appeared to be a bright star, or planet, which seemed to move erratically.
Barney pointed this out to Betty, and they both began to keep track of the object.
The couple began to believe that they were watching a plane appear and disappear, as the
movement of their vehicle caused the trees to come and go in obstructing their view. Later,
Barney would state that he tried to convince himself that the object was a plane, but that
Betty thought it to be something else - an unidentified craft of some kind.
As the two continued to the Flume, just north of North Woodstock, the object appeared to
move in an odd way.

As they reached Indian Head, Barney actually stopped the car to have a look at the object
with his binoculars. He saw multi-colored lights, and rows of windows on a flat-shaped
object, which now seemed to be moving toward him. As the object moved to within a
hundred feet of him, he could see occupants inside. Frightened, he ran back to his car
where Betty waited. They climbed inside and sped away. Soon, two hours of their lives
would vanish into oblivion.

After resuming their journey home, they were not able to see the strange craft anymore.
Oddly though, they heard a beeping sound. They then heard the beeping a second time,
noticing that they were suddenly thirty-five miles farther down the road than a minute or two
ago. They were now in Ashla. The mood in the car was quiet as they proceeded home and
went to bed. They both slept until the next afternoon. When Betty got up, she called her
sister Janet, and told her what had happened. Janet told her to call nearby Pease Air Force
Base, and report what she had seen.

Betty reported the incident, speaking to Major Paul W. Henderson, who told Betty; "The
UFO was also confirmed by our radar." It is important to note at this point that Barney was
against calling the sighting in to the base, hoping to keep it quiet. At this time, neither Betty
nor Barney recalled any abduction. Soon, however, Betty began having nightmarish
dreams of her and her husband being taken aboard a craft of some kind, against their will.

In a matter of weeks, two writers got wind of the story, and after interviewing the Hills, made
an intensive log of the events of the night. They discovered that there were two hours of
unaccounted time in the Hill's story, even allowing for stops for the Hills, and breaks for
their dog, who also had made the trip with them. Another interesting note that I should
interject here is that these "two writers," which are mentioned in almost every report of this
incident, (and there are literally thousands of them), have not been named, or I cannot find
their names. However, the story is true, because their interview was attended by Major
James MacDonald, a former Air Force Intelligence Officer.

Shortly after Betty began having these disturbing dreams, she wrote a letter to Major
Donald Kehoe, who passed her information on to one Walter Webb, who was on the staff of
the Hayden Planetarium. Webb, at the time, was a scientific advisor for the National
Investigations Committee on Arial Phenomena (commonly referred to as NICAP). What he
did with the report is unknown.

It was Major MacDonald who made the suggestion to the Hills that regressive hypnosis
might account for the two hours of missing time. In the spring of 1962, the Hills contacted a
psychiatrist about the hypnosis sessions, but decided to put it off for a time. All the while,
Betty was still haunted by the dreams, and Barney's ulcer was worse, and he was again
suffering from hypertension.

After dodging reporters, and doing some research on psychiatrists, the Hills made a
decision to contact well-known Boston psychiatrist and neurologist, Dr. Benjamin Simon,
who was one of the most respected doctors in his field. After a couple of initial interviews,
Dr. Simon's preliminary diagnosis was "anxiety syndrome," relating to the incidents of the
night of September 19, 1961. His next step was to find out what those events were.

The method of treatment that Dr. Simon chose for the Hills was regressive hypnosis, which
was meant to get to the source of their problem, whatever that may have been. He began
the sessions on Barney, and then followed up with the same treatment for Betty.
The process was slow, but after six months, it was Dr. Simon's expert opinion that the Hills
had been abducted, and taken aboard an unknown flying craft on the night in question.
Anyone who is deeply interested in these sessions, can see transcripts of them in an
excellent book on the entire Hill story, "The Interrupted Journey," written by award-winning
investigative author John G. Fuller. The Hills' story was also included in a two-part article in
"Look" magazine, and a movie, "The UFO Incident," a made-for-TV production. The movie
was released in 1976, and starred Estelle Parsons as Betty, and James Earl Jones as

After the many sessions with Dr. Simon, the following details became evident. The Hills
related that their car had stalled, and then the alien craft landed on the road in front of their
vehicle, forming a kind of roadblock, hailing them down. They were taken into the craft, and
given medical examinations by these aliens, and before being released, were ordered
under hypnosis not to recount any of the details of their incident.

The entities were described by the Hills as "...bald-headed alien beings, about five foot tall,
with greyish skin, pear shaped heads and slanting cat-like eyes."-- This was the very first
mention in UFO folklore of the so-called "greys." The Hills were taken into separate rooms
during their examinations. These "tests" involved both physical and mental procedures.
As part of these tests, skin, hair and nail samples were taken. Betty had a long needle
inserted into her navel, and was told it was a pregnancy test. Under duress, Barney related
that he had given a semen specimen. Betty stated that she was given a kind of book as a
token of her visit, but this item was later taken back.

Another odd fact related under hypnosis was that the aliens seemed to have no conception
of time, or of colors, whatever this may mean. At one point, the aliens seemed surprised to
find that Barney's teeth (dentures) could be removed and replaced. Betty asked one of her
abductors where they were from, and in reply, she was shown a star map of sorts, which will
be discussed in more detail later.

After these events, the Hills were taken back to their car, and the last thing they
remembered was an orange glow disappearing into the night sky. It is very important to
note that the Hills tried to keep these events out of the press, but unfortunately, an
inaccurate version of the events was leaked to the press, after which, the Hills decided to
come forward with the true events of the case.

Dr. Simon was under a great amount of pressure to release whatever information the Hills
authorized about their case. This was considered prudent, not to exploit the story, but to
stop speculation that the absence of a statement by him would seem to shed a negative
light on the Hills' story. Simon concluded that the Hills were not fabricating their story.
He further stated that he there were several conclusions that could be reached. [1] "The
experience actually happened, or, [2] some perceptive and illusory misinterpretations
occurred in relationship to some real event." What the "real event" may be, I do not know.
As the facts of the Hills' case came to public knowledge, two notable, respectable
professionals investigated the story, and made their conclusions. One was Dr. J. Allen
Hynek, who was at the time, Professor of Astronomy at Northwestern University, and later to
be an Air Force Consultant on Aerial Phenomena. He eventually would create his own
"Center For UFO studies." The other was Stanton T. Friedman, a nuclear physicist and the
nation's only space scientist devoting full time to researching the UFO phenomenon.

As a consultant to Project Blue Book, Hynek later released the book, "The UFO
Experience," in which he discussed the Hills' case. I will insert his own words here; "Under
repeated hypnosis they independently revealed what had supposedly happened.
The two stories agreed in considerable detail, although neither Betty nor Barney was privy
to what the other had said under hypnosis until much later.
Under hypnosis they stated that they had been taken separately aboard the craft, treated
well by the occupants - rather as humans might treat experimental animals - and then
released after having been given the hypnotic suggestion that they would remember
nothing of that particular experience. The method of their release supposedly accounted
for the amnesia, which was apparently broken only by counterhypnosis.
