The Secrets Of The Betty And Barney Hill’s Alien Abduction Stories

The story of the abduction of Betty and Barney Hill is something that every UFO enthusiast is aware by now. The Hill’s abduction stories have been the source for many books and even a few movies as well. There are however some secrets that are not known to anyone and even if they are known, people prefer not to discuss them in details. In this article, we would try to point at those secrets which have come out from the statements given by the abducted couple during their sessions of hypnosis.

An introduction to the Betty And Barney Hill couple

Before they got publicly popular with regard to the encounter that they had with extraterrestrials, the couple had already made quite a sensation amongst the locals as they had a mixed marriage, something which was not a common practice in America those days. Betty Hill was a European American woman who was a social worker and her husband, Barney Hill was an African American who worked as a clerk in the U.S. Postal department. The Hills used to live in the city of coastal city of Portsmouth in New Hampshire.

After the alleged encounter with the aliens, when the Hills returned home, they discovered a few anomalies, explanations to which were not readily available to the couple. The strap of the binocular was broken, Barney Hills’ dress shoes were scraped, Betty’s dress was torn at the zipper, hem, and lining. She also noticed a pinkish powder on the dress which got blown away as she had hung the dress on the clothesline. The trunk of the car had shiny concentric circles, origins to which were not known to the baffled couple. When a compass was moved near it, the compass would whirl rapidly proving that a strong electromagnetic force was prevalent in those circles.

The medical examinations

After they got abducted and were taken to the large pancake sized spaceship, medical examinations were being conducted on the couple. The vertebrae count, sperm samples, scraped skin were taken from Barney who also was subjected to a pipe sort of thing being shoved up his anus which was removed after a short while. The extraterrestrials had taken hair samples, nail samples from Betty Hill and her eyes, nose, ears, teeth, mouth, throat and hands were examined. The whole idea of this medical examination, as per the Hills was to note the physiological and biological differences between humans and the aliens.

The Star map

While interacting with the leader of extraterrestrials, Betty Hill had asked the leader of the group that where they are from. On being asked, he took out a map that was dotted with stars and showed her the routes that were taken by the aliens. The star map had two routes, one taken for general trades that were designated by means of thick lines and the other taken for conducting space experimentations which were depicted by means of dotted lines.

Later analysis of the Star map shows that the fifteen stars that are there on the map matches with the double star system of Zeta Reticulli, which is why this abduction case is also termed as the Zeta Reticulli case.

About the visitors

While Barney did not have much to recall about the physical appearance of the visitors as he had kept his eyes closed for most of the time he was inside the spaceship, it was mainly Betty Hill who gave a vivid account of the extraterrestrials. As per her, the aliens were not very tall and their height ranged between 4 feet to 4.5 feet.

While Barney initially felt that the beings were ‘not humans somehow’, as per Betty, the aliens had more or less a human appearance. They had dark eyes, black hair, and prominent nostrils, but the points of difference from humans were that the lips of the visitors were bluish and the sink color was somewhat grayish.
