The Betty and Barney Hill abduction is one of the first widely publicized claims of abduction in modern UFO lore. The couple claims to have been abducted by extraterrestrials in a rural portion of New Hampshire on September 19th, 1961.

Considering I was born and raised in Idaho, I like to keep tabs on strange events that happen around my hometown. This sighting as reported by MUFON was of particular interest because it is similar to other sightings that are near and dear to my heart. This event occurred on May 23rd, 2017 and involves a single witness who reports seeing three rectangular bars of light that seemed composed of orbs that are orange-red in color.

Following up on the Chicago O’Hare sighting that I posted about yesterday, I wanted to follow up with a sighting that was seen by thousands, ruined politicians careers, lasted nearly three hours, and spanned nearly 300 miles. The craft which everyone claims to have seen on March 13th, 1997 was described as a massive V-shaped craft with six lights on its outer edges. Most witnesses say the craft had no sound associated with it, although some state it sounded like a “rushing wind”.
