Keyhoe passed the letter along to NICAP investigator Walter Webb who interviewed the Hills for six hours on October 21, 1961. In the interview Barney admitted that there was a kind of "mental block" on his memories of the experience with the craft. He believed that there was something about the evening that he just couldn't remember.
They were telling the truth and the incident probably occurred exactly as reported except for some minor uncertainties and technicalities that must be tolerated in any such observations where human judgment is involved (e.g., exact time and length of visibility, apparent sizes of object and occupants, distance and height of object, etc.)
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.
