The scariest part about the Travis Walton alien abduction might be that it is one of the most credible and well-documented cases ever. That means that if aliens are real, some of them abduct human beings and subject them to painful, traumatizing experiences.
On November 5th, 1975, Travis Walton was clearing trees in an Arizona forest with six other loggers. After the day's work was done, all seven men piled into a pick-up truck to head home. However, Walton never made it home.
During the drive, the men spotted and heard a buzzing flying saucer-shaped object overhead. Walton was curious, so he stepped out of the vehicle to approach the strange disc. That's when a blue beam of light struck him down to the ground. His fellow loggers yelled at him to come back, but they were too spooked to get out of the car, and eventually drove off.
The next thing Walton remembers is waking up in a hospital-like room and being glared at by three intimidating creatures, resembling the typical "gray aliens" described by witnesses of the Roswell UFO crash and others like it, but with orange jumpsuits.
“I looked at the vague but reassuring forms of the doctors around me. Abruptly my vision cleared. The sudden horror of what I saw rocked me as I realized I was definitely not in a hospital. I was looking square into the face of a horrible creature . . . with huge, luminous brown eyes the size of quarters! I looked frantically around me. There were three of them! Hysteria overcame me instantly.” — Travis Walton
Walton was also in terrible pain and very weak. However, he managed to muster up enough energy to yell at the entities and scare them away temporarily. He later met another taller, more humanoid-looking creature and spent some time walking around the craft. However, he would go on to endure additional, traumatizing examinations during his stay on the alien spaceship.
Whether Walton hallucinated, fabricated, or genuinely recalled his abduction experience is still a matter of debate, but there's little doubt that Walton and his fellow loggers had a UFO sighting, and that Walton went missing for five days afterward. Walton's mysterious disappearance and the subsequent hunt for him was covered by national media.
Walton did return to Earth, but thirty minutes away in the nearby town of Herber, Arizona. He woke up suddenly, and found himself laying on his stomach, and feeling weak, hungry, and thirsty. He was treated at a local hospital and went on to share his terrifying extraterrestrial encounter.
