5Barney and Betty Hill (1961)
The story of Barney and Betty Hill is quite interesting not just abduction-wise, but sociologically. After this couple went public with their story, other testimonies of abduction began to swarm the media. Barney and Betty were on the road going home to New Hampshire after a trip to Canada when
they saw a bright light in the sky. They stopped their car and, using binoculars, reportedly saw alien-like creatures in the ball of light. After the couple got back in their car, they lost 2 hours of their lives and ended up 35 miles away from where they last remembered being. Betty’s dress was ripped and Barney’s shoes were scuffed, and their watches were stopped at the time when the saw the light. The couple became famous for their experience, and numerous news segments and documentaries scrambled to recount the odd story.
