After the examination Betty spoke with a humanoid which she describes as "the leader," a creature who seemed to be in charge who was open about their time in space and who offered some items in the ship as knick knacks for her time in the ship. When she asked where they came from the leader found an instruction map dotted with stars and pointed out his home planet to her.

When everything was said and done a group humanoids escorted the Hills from the ship and broke out into an argument over the book that Betty wanted to take home. Chastised for wanting to take home a commemorative object from her abduction, Betty insisted that she would remember the events regardless of what happened to their memory. When the Hills were returned to their car the leader suggested they watch the craft depart. After doing so the Hills resumed their trip home.

They ran into a UFO on vacation

Around 10:30 p.m. Sept. 19, 1961, the Hills were driving to Portsmouth from a vacation in Niagara Falls when Betty noticed something in the sky just south of Lancaster, New Hampshire. Betty states that she saw the bright light zip from below the moon to a similar area in the sky as Jupiter. The Hills initially believed the light to be a falling star, but when it began moving upward Betty asked Barney to pull over so they could get a better look.

Barney stopped at a scenic picnic area just south of Twin Mountain, and through a pair of binoculars they noticed an "odd-shaped" vehicle with flashing multicolored lights moving across the face of the moon. It was then that Betty realized that she was seeing a UFO.
