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.
What do you think of the Travis Walton alien abduction incident? Is it one of the best and scariest cases on in ufology? Or could it have been a hoax or hallucination?

In UFOJane's latest YouTube video, the real Project Blue Book (that the History Channel new show is based on) and wonders if it was ever shut down, as the government would have us believe.
An amazing and adorable account of a large flying saucer following a car and seeming to even weild control over it, at least when not blocked by trees, has been uploaded to YouTube. In the video below, you can listen to an interview with an 8-year-old child witness of the UFO, as well as see a drawing that he made of the UFO at the time. Although it is clear the child has discussed the event before this interview, his testimony seems credible. The UFO was also described as having blinking lights and a white beam of light shining down. Share your thoughts on this fascinating UFO case file in the comments below, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and if you also saw something like this in the early 70s as well, report your sighting! The video was uploaded by the witness' uncle:
The History Channel's hotly-anticipated series, "Project Blue Book," premiered this week to an impressive 3.1 million viewers (making it one of the network's top premiers ever) and a pretty positive, if not cool reception online. Some viewers became instant fans, while others were underwhelmed or even took issue with the series being a work of fiction, versus a documentary. However, most the reviews and comments online were hopeful about the next episode.
FBI.gov currently houses a number of intriguing UFO files (many formerly top-secret) that reveal the US Air Force's nonfiction interest and investigations into the UFO phenomenon. Project Blue Book was one of these investigative groups, and in fact, it was preceded by the top-secret Project Sign and Project Grudge. As recently as December 2017, the New York Times revealed that the Pentagon followed in the footsteps of Project Blue Book, and still considers UFOs to be real, and a potentially real, extraterrestrial threat.
The History Channel series focuses on the cases from the 50s and 60s that Project Blue Book founder, and so-called "father of ufology" J. Allen Hynek would have been close to, like the "Lubbock Lights," but reportedly has plenty of fantasy mixed in. Hynek is the main character in the show, and he's played by Aidan Glenn, famous for playing "Littlefinger" in "Game of Thrones." As with any good scifi drama, the UFO and alien-pursuing Hynek needs a skeptical foil. Enter Captain Michael Quinn, played by Michael Malarkey from "The Vampire Diaries."

With the new fictional "Men in Black" movie coming out this summer, it is worthwhile to first learn about the very real, nonfictional Men in Black.
If you think aliens, ghosts, and monsters are scary, then consider the Men in Black who investigate them on the regular. We're not talking friendly Will Smith here, but pale, lifeless, black suit-wearing men who show up to paranormal events and have a scary way of making them disappear...
5. Men in Black Question Witness' Family After UFO Abducts Her Boyfriend
As with UFO and alien sightings, Men in Black sightings are also reported to MUFON. Of all the MUFON reports I've looked at over the years, MUFON case 84106 is definitely one of the more interesting, and creepier ones. Two weeks after a woman sees an ominous, black, cigar-shaped object abduct her boyfriend in the spring of 1982, the infamous Men in Black visit her family home and question her mother and sister. You can read the full testimony right here:

4. 200 Schoolchildren See Flying Saucer... Then the Men in Black Show Up
The Westall UFO is one of the more famous and well-documented sightings of all-time, as it involved 200+ eyewitnesses, mainly schoolchildren attending two nearby schools in Melbourne, Australia in 1966. For about 20 minutes, a flying saucer was observed descending from the sky and landing in a schoolyard. Many years later, in Zimbabwe, Africa, another similar-looking UFO would also land near a schoolyard in front of 60+ schoolchildren. In that case, actual entities came out of the craft and interacted with the witnesses. Why are these mass UFO sightings not better known? Maybe it's because the Men in Black were on the case. By 2018, new details about the Westall UFO sighting, including possible involvement of the MIB, were revealed. Initially, it was just the school's headmaster who was trying to quiet the affair. However, several witnesses ended up claiming that "sharply dressed men in black suits visited them and warned them from speaking about the incident."
3. The Spaceman and the Men in Black
Jim Templeton thought he was taking a simple picture of his daughter one afternoon in 1964. However, when he reviewed the photo later, he noticed a mystery figure in the background.... some say an astronaut, dubbed the "Solway Firth Spaceman." For years, the photo went unexplained, until more recently, when it was suggested the photo was showing the photographer's wife, standing with her back facing toward the camera. Hoax, misidentification, or real photo, it's the Men in Black's interest in it that keeps it in the "unsettling" category. Two men who claimed to work for the government visited Templeton at the time. They went by the code names of #9 and #10 and asked Templeton to take them to the site where the photo was taken. When Miller told #9 and #10 that he had never seen the figure with his naked eye, the "government agents" became angry and swiftly abandoned the site. Considering the Men in Black's fingerprints on this case, it's a case that will probably always remain open.
2. 2016, the Year of the Men in Black
In 2016, there were a string of Men in Black sightings reported in Iowa, Texas (in Houston and Mcallen), Florida, and Tennessee. In Iowa, creepy men in trench coats were reported lingering around the roadways in the middle of the night and appearing in front of vehicles! In Houston, Men in Black reportedly visited a possible UFO crash. And in Florida, a UFO witness shared with MUFON their belief that they were had been visited by the MIB on two separate occasions. Many scary stories about UFOs and aliens, and even the Men in Black, go back to the 60s or even earlier. But these cases are real recent and so, real frightening!
1. Best Left In the Dark
On a soon-to-be eerie winter night in 1961, Paul Miller and his friends are returning home from a hunting trip. After seeing a strange luminous tower hovering in the sky, Miller panics, draws his gun, and fires! That's when two human-like entities emerge from the craft. Miller is able to wound one of the humanoids before fleeing the scene in his car. But that's not the end of the encounter... or is it? Miller and his friends all experience "missing time" during their escape, unable to account for at least three hours. When Miller returns to his job the next day, which happens to be in the Air Force, three classic "Men in Black" figures approach him and tell him that they have his files. They also warn Miller that they knew about the "incident" and that it is "best left in the dark." Although Miller rarely speaks about the incident to the public, he was once quoted as saying this about the mysterious men: "They seemed to know everything about me; where I worked, my name, everything else."
