We join our trio again, this time on September 19, 1961 cruising through the forests of New Hampshire in our '57 Chevrolet Bel Air on our way back from a Niagara Falls vacation with Betty and Barney Hill. What they claimed happened to them is to be the first major alien abduction report in the United States... We examine what craft the couple encountered that night, the "beings" they had seen and telepathically communicated with. They heard rhythmic beeping and buzzing sounds, a tingling sensation passing through their bodies as their car vibrated, only to lose consciousness. Later to find they had traveled nearly 35 miles south, with only vague and spotty memories. We look through the binoculars and try to seek. What did the Hill's experience? How it affected them afterward? What did they encounter? ...and who?
