Let's go back to 1961 for the first major UFO abduction story in American history - the Betty & Barney Hill Incident!
During a dark night in rural New Hampshire, Betty & Barney Hill (and their pet dachshund, Delsey) were coming back home from a weekend trip in Canada when they spotted a strange unidentified aircraft moving bizarrely in the sky. Then it began to follow their car.
Once they finally got home, they realized they had lost 2-3 hours of time that they couldn't remember, with their trip taking almost double the time they had expected it to. Betty began having strange dreams about alien abduction, and Barney became more and more disturbed by the missing time. Eventually, Betty and Barney went to a hypnotherapist to recover their lost memories...and that's when the real strangeness started.
Were Betty & Barney Hill really abducted by aliens in the New Hampshire countryside? Or did they experience some sort of shared madness - a folie a deux?
