Claims of alien abduction and run-ins with UFOs were ubiquitous in the back half of the 20th century, but no abduction story is quite as fascinating as that of Barney and Betty Hill. In 1961, this couple claimed that they were abducted by "humanoids" in rural New Hampshire, something made even more complicated by the fact that they were a mixed race couple.
What became known as the "Hill Abduction" and the "Zeta Reticuli Incident" has everything - aliens, spaceships, lost time, and even hypnosis. What happened when the Hills came face to face with extraterrestrials in 1961? We'll try to get as close to the truth as we can.
Barney believed he had a mental block on the abduction
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.)
