|Preliminary: Driving home to Portsmouth, NH,
from a vacation trip at about 11:00 P.M., they saw a star like object
approaching them on an erratic course; it looked like a craft. Through
binoculars Barney saw beings in it looking at him. He fled to the car
and they sped away They experienced a time lapse.
Initial activities: Under hypnosis details of an
encounter emerged; six or more humanoid beings approached their car
after they turned off into a wooded area, and they were escorted up a
ramp and on board the craft.
Craft/Beings: Disc-shaped with windows, a
half-dozen uniformed beings visible inside. Beings were 5 ft. to 5 ft.
4 in. (1.5-1.6 m) tall, and had broad foreheads, round faces tapered
toward the chin, dark cat like eyes that extended around to the side of
the head, small mouths, small noses, grayish skin, dark clothing.
Onboard features: Curved corridor around the
circumference of the craft. Witnesses taken into wedge-shaped rooms.
Metallic and white examining rooms illuminated by bluish fluorescence,
with tables and various equipment, instruments, storage
Onboard activities: First Betty and then Barney
was extensively examined.
Communication: When communicating among
themselves, the beings made a mumbling or humming sound. Only the
leader and the examiner communicated with them. Betty (apparently via
telepathy) was told that she should not be afraid; they only wanted to
conduct some tests and would return them to the car. Later they asked
her about concepts of aging and measures of time.
Termination/Return: Two men escorted Barney to
the exit, his eyes still closed. Barney walked down the ramp, opened
his eyes, and saw the car. He got inside and sat waiting for Betty. The
leader escorted Betty partway to the car. After the craft took off, she
got back in the car and Barney drove off.
Aftermath: Both felt numb and confused and had
memory gaps. They reached home about 5:00 A.M., two hours later than
expected. Barney found the tops of his shoes scuffed, and burrs in his
cuffs and socks. Ten days later Betty had vivid nightmares about the
experience. Barney had a vague dream about a roadblock, later had
physical problems. Eventually they sought help and were referred for
psychological counseling. When the full story emerged under hypnosis,
the case became one of the most celebrated UFO incidents of all
