TRAVIS WALTON
The Walton experience is unequivocally the best documented case of alien abduction ever recorded. In November 1975, a group of six tree-trimmers were driving home from work in the Sitgreave-Apache National Forest in Arizona. The driver stopped the truck when he noticed a saucer shaped object hovering about fifteen feet above some nearby trees. Travis Walton approached the craft on foot, despite the objections of his workmates. He was then knocked to the ground by a blue and white light. When the men in the truck saw this they were terrified and sped off the down the road leaving him for dead. Once they had calmed down, they returned to that spot and couldn't find any sign of Travis or the flying saucer. Five days later, Travis was returned to earth wondering what had happened to him for the past few days.
