Encounters with UFOs


They were taken up a ramp and into a door in the curved side of the object. Betty was taken into what she interpreted as a medical examining room. Barney, barely able to move under his own power, was half-carried along a curving passageway into another room.

The leader of the group tried to calm Betty. "Don't be afraid," he said. "We're not going to harm you. We just want to do some tests." She was placed on a table and given an extensive but rather unorthodox examination. Samples of skin were scraped off, and a long needle was painlessly inserted into her navel. Suddenly another member of the group rushed into the room and started to tug at Betty's teeth. He seemed surprised that they did not come out, as Barney's had. She explained that Barney wore dentures; that many people did as they grew older. She found herself trying to explain the concept of age and decay to fascinated but uncomprehending listeners.

As Betty's examination was going on, Barney was receiving a similar going-over down the hall. He recalls being touched near his groin by an instrument made up of a circular pattern of needles. Months later a circle of warts appeared on his thigh in the same place the instrument had probed.

The Hills were then taken back to their car, and a few minutes later they again heard a series of beeps, which released them from the state of amnesia. They drove home and tried to resume a normal life, after having been apparently the first humans to make direct contact with creatures from another world.

Eyewitness Report

"I know this creature is telling me something ... I can see it in his face ... his lips are not moving.... His eyes! His eyes! I've never seen eyes like that before."-Barney Hill

"I asked him where he was from ... he pulled out a map ... there were all these dots on it ... there were curved lines going from one dot to another ... he said the heavy lines were trade routes ... and the broken lines were expeditions ... But I wonder if they will ever come back. I go around looking for them. And I look out the window at home."--Betty Hill

Official Comment

"Theirs was an iron-clad story. They seemed to be a sincere, honest couple driving home from vacation, late at night on a lonely road, when suddenly something completely unknown and undefinable descended on them. Something entirely foreign or alien to their existence."-Walter Webb, then a lecturer on the staff of Hayden Planetarium and adviser to the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena

"... hypnosis is a pathway to the truth as it is felt and understood by the patient. The truth is what he believes to be the truth, and this may or may not be consonant with the ultimate nonpersonal truth. Most frequently it is."--Dr. Benjamin Simon, the psychiatrist who hypnotized the Hills
