UFO-Alien Abduction Still Haunts Travis Walton

UFO-Alien Abduction Still Haunts Travis Walton 2

Close encounters of the FOURTH kind. That’s when a person claims to have been kidnapped by a UFO and its reportedly otherworldly occupants.

Of course, there’s no tangible evidence that anyone has ever been taken aboard an extraterrestrial spacecraft. But there are those who claim they’ve been abducted, and their stories are chilling.

Travis Walton’s terrifying account is the stuff movies are made from, and he joins us on the HuffPost Weird News podcast to talk about that day 40 years ago, when the then 22-year-old logger says he was knocked unconscious, and woke up to find he was surrounded by ETs aboard their ship.

“It was a metallic, glowing disc, making some very strange sounds,” Walton told us. “The closer I got to it, the more scared we all got and they were swearing at me to get away from there, and when I got up close, it suddenly got louder and started to move.

“I jumped for cover and then jumped up to run back to the truck, and that’s when this blast of energy hit me, and I just felt this numbing shock go through my body. But the crew said it threw me through the air 10 or 20 feet and I landed in a way that they were immediately certain it had killed me, and they fled.”

The incident began on Nov. 5, 1975, after a long day of work in the Sitgreaves National Forest near Heber, Arizona. Walton and six other loggers were heading home when they suddenly saw a 40-foot-diameter shiny disc hovering in the air.

Walton first told his extraordinary story in a 1978 book, “The Walton Experience,” which became a 1993 film, “Fire In The Sky.” His account has just been turned into a candid documentary, “Travis: The True Story of Travis Walton.”

travisandufoWalton reveals the terrifying details of his experience at the hands of several “non-human” beings, and his feelings of suffocation and the fear that he was dying as the event unfolded.

“When I was first able to focus my eyes good enough, I was still on the table. And as soon as I saw this face, and knew it wasn’t human, I tried to hit it away from me. They were much smaller than me, and I think that’s the reason they gave up. Once they found out they couldn’t control me, they split. I was absolutely terrified.”

Walton, pictured at right, was declared missing for five days, during which time his logger buddies fell under suspicion of foul play. When Walton finally turned up again, not knowing how long he’d been gone, an intense investigation was underway, including multiple polygraph, physical and psychological tests.

He tells HuffPost about little known aftermath details, including subsequent research in the forest area which has shown an unusual growth rate in trees in the immediate vicinity of the encounter.

“About 15 years later, it was discovered that the trees nearest to where [the UFO] hovered had been producing wood fiber at 36 times the rate it had in the 85 years before that,” Walton says. “More recently, a complete core sampling revealed that this thickened growth was only on the side of the trees towards, or in the direction that the craft had been.”

Walton addresses the stigma that he and so many other people — who claim encounters with possible alien beings — are generally considered unreliable wackos.

“The scientific evidence of the likelihood of intelligent life in our vicinity has become so overwhelming that the people who believe that we’re alone in the universe — thoseare the kooks.”

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of his close encounter, Walton will speak at the November Skyfire Summit in Arizona. On the agenda is a road trip to the exact spot where this four-decade-long controversy began.

Fire in the Sky was a total crock of shit….Hollywood twisted it into a horror movie. what REALLY happened was this: On that 1975 evening, Travis saw the ET ship and ran towards it….BUT the ship was giving off an energy field, likely from its propulsion system or something…when Travis got too close, the energy caused his heart to stop totally. (A similar thing happened in Randolshem forest in 1980 to some us military guys) The ET’s, realizing what just happened, took him on board their ship and repaired the damage to Travis’s body . Upon waking, Travis did freak… Read more »

I do find that film quite scary

Guest

You guys really need to read Dolores Cannons’ books…especially “The Custodians”…I have had experiences since childhood. Once you understand what is really going on…you can let go the FEAR.

Guest

I think you’ll find that without their space suits they look just like us

Guest

Not a real article.

Guest

I never asked you anything. Fact is you’re incorrect I’m sorry to tell you. Carry-on.

Guest

je ne suis pas la pour te convaincre si tu veux rester dans ta vision de l histoire ces ton choix

Guest

I’m sure. I’m not discussing your vast knowledge and skills, I’m just telling you that the information is wrong. Period. Good luck.

Guest

ben Niko Lalangas je connais le dossier je les debunker sur mon groupe je les lus de a a z

Guest

It’s still not real. Sorry to inform you, but you are incorrect.

Guest

Niko Lalangas wikipedia est une source de base elle est plus sur que celle sur le poste

Guest

et ce n est pas medecin qu il a osculter c est un psy

Guest

My opinion doesn’t factor in. I never mentioned how I felt. I just know it’s a fake article. Keep referencing Wackypedia, though. I’m sure you’ll find a fact somewhere in that haystack.

Guest

pas vrai car tu ne */veux pas entendre cette reponse mais je n es pas que celui la

Guest
Travis Walton et ses collègues furent soupçonnés de toxicomanie : ils reconnurent publiquement consommer occasionnellement du cannabis. On soupçonna Travis Walton d’avoir inventé toute cette histoire dans un but mercantile de publication. Travis Walton avait déjà été condamné en 1971 pour émission de faux chèques1. Philip Klass assure que l’enlèvement de Travis Walton n’était qu’une astucieuse mise en scène imaginée par Michael Rogers, employeur de Travis Walton. Celui-ci était dans l’impossibilité d’honorer le contrat pour lequel il s’était engagé. La date butoir approchait et il lui restait encore plusieurs hectares à éclaircir. Il faut savoir qu’aux États-Unis un contrat peut… Read more »
Guest

then if it does happen to you, you won’t tell anyone bcuz you know how you acted when you didn’t know they existed.,,

Guest

translation is broken but again with the drugs… whats next my camera is on drugs or my 60 yr old neighbor who seen with me or my 13 yr old son? c’mon i understand believing in aliens sounds completely crazy and drugs is logical, right up until it happens to you

Guest

le pere de travis etait un mordu d ovni il a consacré toute sa vie a chercher a attendre il a quitté sa famille pour parcourir le monde a la recherche des ovnis et etait tres violent un déséquilibré mentale ils ont été élevé dans la peur les coups et les ovnis

Guest

Ryan G lorsque tu fumes tu n a spas tes idées claires il me semble a moins que tu sois un habitués et que tu n as plus l effets de cette drogue car s en ets une

Guest

of coarse ppl whom have never seen a ufo would laugh, i did too at one time, you stop laughing when a ship is less than 100 ft in front of you , doing moves and speeds impossible for our physics

Guest

if anything it helps create a vibrational signal more acceptable for receiving by aliens instead of a stressed out mind trying to achieve the same communication

Guest

Melina Ferrand it doesn’t matter mine or anyone elses story why try to dis credit a valuable piece of knowledge of the experience by bringing addiction into it, so what if he smoked pot? it’s not addictive nor does it make you see spaceships!

Guest

l affaire Travis na de succès que sur face book car dans leur village tout le monde connait bien l histoire et ils se marrent a chaques interviews

Guest

Ryan G je parle del affaire travis et non de ton experience

Guest

ur retarded seriously come to my place and if you can logically explain my physical evidence, not including my pics and videos of both aliens and ufo’s but just threw science logically explain how my evidence was created then i’ll take back the retarded remark

Guest

His was a nightmare.

Guest

might just be my own survival mode actions kicking in , but i really dont think i would have as much compelling physical evidence if it was just my own actions or else more ppl would have the same..and this question about their existence would have been forgotten .long ago

Guest
Guest

yeah the big guy didnt think i was conscious when i took the pic on the choppin block lol my gut tells me the lil guy did, and i think he is the one that has been helping leave proof from the encounters,.. just a gut feeling

Guest

Only if you watch the film. He was unconscious for most of his experience.

Guest

It was probably just the approach that has him still haunted.

Guest

The unknown. He didn’t know what he was seeing, who he was looking at, what they were up to… and then later mass confusion because he saw people that he thought were like him but weren’t and they wouldn’t speak to him.

Guest

YET N YES WE REALLY DO NEED PROOF I AGREE BUT LOTA HEARSAYS FOR OVER 50 YRS

Guest

Oh I know at St Francis Square Victoria Gozo at Topies Bar

Guest

👽🔫

Guest

I bet, that would be like meeting the devil himself

Guest

you both might be right but i still think they have power over us to play angels and demons so until one of us get abducted we wont know like the reptileans are very hostile

Guest

In Hollywood, anything is possible.

Guest

Niko Lalangas but would he do evil things or would he be tricky an pretend to be the good guy,..?

Guest

Not at all. The Devil would do evil things. No one hurt Travis. He was just scared. Being afraid and being hurt are two different things.

No one with half a brain thinks They look just like that illustration – Star Trek suits, huge heads, and evil eyes.

Guest

I want to believe travis,i spoken to him a few times,my girlfriend and i on september 26,2015 have photos of craft that were taken prior to the bloodmoon event,we seen many and yes we were sober,i have video and still shots,im down to earth guy very spiritual and so is my girlfriend,im a little bothered by it evey time i look at them,its a strage feeling,have a good night

Guest

They stole his clothes,professional pick pockets

Guest

No they didn’t. The movie just made him naked. He said he was not naked.

Guest

They left him naked ,and he says they were trying to do things but he kept fighting si his will was strong ,so they threw his butt out

Guest

They never stole his clothes.

Guest

Travis Walton Alien abduction is considered by many as the smoking gun of ET genetic experiments on humans.
However, the positive proof that Travis was indeed kidnapped by some unknown beings, lies with Travis himself. All we’re left with, is a story with no verifiable evidence that Aliens were involved!

Guest

This really did happen

Guest
the guy i seen had eyes like these 3 aliens,and a head like them too except he was short like 2 ft and had little anteni, and all around the brow all the way connecting around this large cow size eyes is little bumpy nubs like how the mexican makeup looks for El Dia de los Muertos, and i dont care what anyone says i know how that whole thing started cuz if people seen the same being and they were as scared as i was when i seen this yes i would make a parade out of it if… Read more »
Guest

Id say so that film was scary

Guest

That film was fake.

Guest

That’s the man from Fire in the Sky. I would be paralyzed by such an event.

Guest

I have heard of the “Nordics” and the Hitler element.

Guest

Amazing! The truth is better than fiction. Thank you for answering.

Guest
He does appearances. Also, what REALLY happened was this: On that 1975 evening, Travis saw the ET ship and ran towards it….BUT the ship was giving off an energy field, likely from its propulsion system or something…when Travis got too close, the energy caused his heart to stop totally. (A similar thing happened in Randolshem forest in 1980 to some us military guys) The ET’s, realizing what just happened, took him on board their ship and repaired the damage to Travis’s body . Upon waking, Travis did freak out for a moment, and the ET’s left the room he was… Read more »
Guest

So happy you told me that. I have so many questions for Travis, does he do lecters?

Guest

Fire in the sky movie was a LIE, hollywood twisted it into a horror movie to make us fear ‘evil aliens’, Travis event was actually VERY peaceful.

Guest

Most are good but there are a few bad ones, Just like us here on earth!!!

Guest

I wonder where there from

Guest

Maybe the moon

Guest

Maybe Venus or zada

Guest

No.

Guest

Maybe from Mars

Guest

They didn’t say.

Guest

YEA but some feed off your fear , theres more than one kind ,your dog can see them and some stink when they around.

Guest

lmao

Guest

Yes, and many dogs smell their own silent farts.

Guest

I seen them from somewhere before

Guest

I was told by a Hindu Guru if you catch an Alien you can ask them for anything you want and they will give it to you. This goes for abductees, you have to show them no fear, and smile a lot.

When you radiate “Fear” to an Alien, then they too become fearful. Dogs are like this too.

Guest

The truth, if it were present, would be very lovely and freeing. I could free myself from this wordy irrelevant discussion. 😉

So – would Al like to answer the original question yet?

Or – Would else like to tell me things I already know instead?

Guest

The truth will set you free, but it will piss you off at first. 😀

Guest
Niko, try this channel, over the past 10 years of research i did, this channel is probably one of the more sensible, non sensationalized channel around. And discusses the ET, and how their technology is centered around thought and consciousness…they ‘think’ what they want their machines to do and it happens, same for communications…..think of this, Niko….an advanced, civilized society, especially millions of years ahead of us, would appear ‘magical’ or ‘impossible’ to us….like how WE appear ‘magical’ to primitive tribal people (there has been islanders who actually made mock up of airplanes after they saw them and worshiped them)… Read more »
Guest

Yes, all very true. And again, I’m back to – I call bullshit. 🙂

Guest

Niko Lalangas One slight thing, Niko…..about 600 years ago, “Facts” were: The earth is flat (And despite what these “flat earther” prats these days say, it’s a ball, not a pancake 😛 ; Man can not fly, man will NEVER reach the moon, the sound barrier will NEVER be broken! This were all considered FACTS at one point, Niko…..think about that

Guest

Not true. Facts represent everything from science to history to real life occurrences to math.

So although all of these are interesting topics – once again, the question remains unanswered.

Because of the response, I’m going to have to call bullshit on this one. 🙂

Guest

Facts represent Empirical Science. Perceptions are what we perceive. This is why science tests what it perceives. Testing to prove it as a fact.
I could perceive a snake in my yard, on close examination it turns out to be a rope.
Philosophy is made up of “words and language” and words and language can be false, can be manipulate to trick the listener.

Guest

In other words, there are no facts only perceptions?

I wish that were entirely true, but it’s not. It’s a great philosophy, however.

Guest

Throughout this world there is a wide variety of Spiritual, Psychic and UFO experiences. Even in the Bible it says, “Seek and you shell find”
Each individual walks their own path, or they get on the path of someone’s suggestion, or by force.
What each person believes is because of their own experiences, conditioning and intellect.

Guest

So the question remains unanswered. I’m not surprised.

Guest

Niko Lalangas the Et’s ‘spoke’ to him via mental communication.

Guest

That’s all very interesting… The unanswered question: Who did he speak with?

Guest

Niko Lalangas Actually yes….my friend, head of our Ufo/Exopoltics group, E.T.C.A.R.E., his sone was trying a solo CE5/remote viewing and he had a mental/physic episode where he ‘traveled’ astral to an Et’s world, and he saw them all over the place…and he got scared…the ET’s said, “Go home, you STINK of fear!” and threw him out. And who’s to argue with a Hindu, there sacred books SCREAM alien visitations.

Guest

Not true.

Guest

um there is tangible physical evidence, just no one wants to come investigate it

Guest

Actually, they have investigated and it’s quite fascinating. 🙂

Guest

movie was great ,fire in the sky 1975 if i,m not mistaken.

Guest

Yes.

Guest

THE REAL ACTUAL INCIDENT HAPPEN IN 1975 ….

Guest

93

Guest

Yep, though the film was 1992

Guest

Fire in the Sky was an 80s film. Although it did feature some very credible actors… it did not feature facts. It was all Hollywood. Travis was not operated on and screaming while awake. Travis did not come home naked in the rain. The story is true, the discussions, the lie detector tests, all true. The visual art of Hollywood – not real.

Guest

Fire in the Sky was a LIE…Hollywood turned it into a horror movie. The encounter Travis had was actually peaceful and NOTHING like that god awful piece of propaganda garbage movie

Guest

True, I do to

Guest

true ,funny u said that every time i watch it i find something else the stranges shit ever.

Guest

It’s one of those you don’t get tired of rewatching

Guest

i seen it a few months ago on one of those crazy cable station shows old movies.

Guest

You’re correct. ..I usually watch it whenever I see it’s being replayed

Guest

why it’s Wynken, Blynken And Nod

Guest

The logger from Snowflake AZ
, true story, and I would be haunted by it also
