Experts claimed there was no constellation similar to the drawing and that it bore no resemblance to any known formation at the time.
Now years later, one statistician has remarkably argued that the unusual alignment of key sun-like stars in the drawing, which mirrors the Zeta Reticuli could never have happened by chance and that Betty WAS a victim of an alien abduction.
Just south of Lancashire,New Hampshire, Betty and Barney claim to have seen a strange, oval craft hovering above them.
Betty, speaking before her death in 2004, said in an never before seen interview: “I was taken on board. Barney was taken into one room and I was taken into another. The one who did the testing we called The Examiner.
“First they put me on a stool and they checked my eyes, ears, nose, throat. They put me on a table, and said they wanted to check my nervous system.
“Then they tried to insert a needle-like instrument in my navel which caused pain so they stopped doing it. Barney’s exam was very much like mine in the beginning except they were interested in his bone structure.”
David Saunders, a statistician who had been on the Condon UFO study, argued that the unusual alignment of key sun-like stars in a plane centered around Zeta Reticuli was statistically improbable to have happened by chance from a random sketch and that Betty was in fact telling the truth.
He claimed that only aliens could have given her the information.
Barney became so ill, they sought medical advice. The couple were examined and put under hypnosis by psychiatrist, Dr Benjamin Simon who made an astonishing discovery.
When Betty and Barney were regressed to the missing time and alleged moment of abduction, they were able to clearly recall all the details, serving as further proof of the couple’s story.
Barney died of a cerebral hemorrhage on February 25, 1969, at age 46. Betty believed this was partially due to the terrifying experience of his alien abduction.
Betty Hill died October 17, 2004, having spent the intervening years proving beyond a doubt that she was visited by aliens from a distant planet.
