On the evening of September 19-20, 1961, New Hampshire residents Barney and Betty Hill were returning from a vacation in Canada when they noticed a strange light moving through the sky in the distance. Over the course of the next 45 minutes, their lives would forever change, as they became participants on one of history’s best known–and most controversial–alleged UFO sightings.
This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we present a historical analysis of the Hill case, and examine some of the finer details about the purported occupants aboard the craft the couple observed, as well as the bizarre claims of their abduction and medical examination on board a UFO.
