Prior to their experience with a UFO the Hills were mostly normal couple. In 1961, their marriage wasn't legal. Barney was a Black man and Betty was a white woman, a union that wasn't allowed in the United States as a whole until the U.S. Supreme Court repealed the "anti-miscegenation" laws in 1967.

Barney worked at the United States Postal Service, and Betty was a social worker. They were both members of the NAACP, and were major parts of their local community who sat on a local board of the United States Commission on Civil Rights. The Hills weren't kooks. They weren't truthers. They were just trying to live their life and be happy. Everything changed on the night of September 19, 1961.

A little over a week after their alleged UFO encounter, Betty experienced a series of dreams that continued for five successive nights. At the end of the five night run Betty's vivid dreams came to an abrupt end. She mentioned the dreams to Barney, but when he was unconcerned she dropped the matter, but she was privately concerned.

In November Betty wrote down the details of her dreams, noting that in one of them the car surrounded by men and she passed out while Barney fought to get control of their vehicle.
