Number 10. The Whitley Strieber Incident. The popular horror novelist was on a cottage vacation at an isolated cabin in upstate New York, when he woke to find an alien standing by his bed. He was levitated into a UFO where he was subjected to a barrage of medical procedures including an anal probe, and the insertion of a long needle into his brain. His book and movie about the encounter, entitled Communion, has made him one of the most famous alien abductees.
Number 9. The Jesse Long Abduction. When he was just five years old, he and his brother found a flying saucer in a field, and a tall alien paralyzed them with some kind of rod. On board, he was inserted with a tracking device, and revisited regularly to have invasive procedures performed, including an alien crossbreeding program which allegedly yielded ten hybrid children. After thirty four years, the implant was removed, and determined to be of unknown origin.
Number 8. Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker. Fishing from the pier on Mississippi's Pascagoula River, they witnessed a blue lit UFO descend over the water. Three aliens emerged and levitated the paralyzed men into the ship where they were thoroughly examined. After a chilling police interview, the two men were unknowingly recorded alone in the room and said “They better start believin'...; You see how that damn door come right up?; I don't know how it opened, son. I don't know.”
Number 7. Frederick Valentich’s Disappearance. The young pilot was on a nighttime training flight out of Melbourne, Australia when he radioed air traffic control to report a large shiny UFO with green lights, following and orbiting him at fantastic speeds. Near the end of the recorded conversation, he reported losing engine power as the UFO approached. His final words were “It isn't an aircraft.”, followed by metallic scraping sounds and then static. No sign of him or his plane was ever found.
Number 6. Antonio Vilas-Boas. A Brazilian farmer was plowing his fields when a red egg shaped UFO landed next to him, and a group of aliens dragged him inside. He was stripped naked, covered in gel, and gassed with something that made him violently ill. Then a female alien sexually seduced him, rubbed her belly and pointed up indicating a space birth. He was returned to the field four hours later, with a case of radiation poisoning that lasted several months.
Number 5. Linda Cortile. A married mother of two was asleep in her 12th story Manhattan apartment when she was suddenly awakened by alien beings in her room. They levitated her out the window in a beam of bright light and up into their ship, where they implanted a strange metallic object in her body. Several witnesses, including a Secretary General of the United Nations and two New York City police officers, reported seeing three creatures and a woman floating up to a hovering UFO.
Number 4. Sergeant Charles Moody. In Alamogordo, New Mexico, a town now famous for the Atari ET video game burial, the Air Force sergeant was watching a meteor shower in the desert, when a long UFO suddenly landed next to him and he was knocked unconscious. He awoke on board unable to move, surrounded by aliens examining him.
Number 3. The Allagash Artists. Four art school graduates camping in Maine, were doing a bit of night fishing when they saw a glowing orb hovering above the trees.
Number 2. Betty & Barney Hill. The well respected couple were driving along a dark New Hampshire highway, when they saw a UFO darting about overhead. Nervously they tried to escape but as the UFO approached them, they felt powerless to resist.
Number 1. The Average Abductee. Some surveys estimate that as much as 5-6 percent of the general population may have been abducted by aliens. The Harvard University Gazette reported that an investigator of 800 cases "spent countless therapeutic hours with these individuals only to find that what struck him was the 'ordinariness' of the population.” So don't be too quick to scoff at these stories... It could happen to you…or may already have.
