They Didn't Even Know They'd Been Abducted

UFOs sightings happen fairly frequently (at least according to UFO sighting witnesses), but in the 1960s and '70s, alien crafts were spotted almost every week throughout America and the rest of the Western world. The rise of inexpensive photography equipment helped witnesses make a better case for their sightings, and often these photos were able to provide evidence that an eyewitness testimony just can’t offer. But in many cases of UFO encounters witnesses are either too awestruck to take action, or technology just doesn’t work. These are just a few of the most exciting stories of UFO sightings from the 20th century.

In August 1976, Maine’s Allagash Wilderness Waterway became an inadvertent UFO hot spot when four college students spotted an alien craft streaking across the sky. After reporting the ship to a park ranger the students continued on their way. 

Years later, one of the students began having violent seizures along with memories of being loaded onto a craft before receiving a medical examination. It’s unclear how long the friends were aboard the ship -- if indeed they ever were -- but the sighting and long-delayed recollection is fascinating nonetheless.

Who Are The Plejarens, And What Do They Want From Billy Meier?

Billy Meier is a strange figure in the world of UFOlogy. Throughout his life Meier claims to have spotted a series of unidentified crafts, while also coming into contact with the entities who pilot the ships.

In the '60s and '70s, Meier presented a series of photos, metal samples, and sound recordings to back up his claims that he was in regular contact with an alien race known as the Plejarens. Meier’s photos very clearly show large metal discs and otherworldly craft floating about the Swiss countryside -- truly remarkable images, but are they authentic?
