The Betty Andreasson Luca Alien Abduction - January 25, 1967
Betty Andreasson taken aboard the mother
1967 yılında, Betty Andreasson adlı Massachusettsli kadının uzaylılar
tarafından kaçırılmasıyla duyulmuştur. Andreasson, dünya dışı varlıklar
tarafından kaçırıldığını ve uzaygemisinde kendisi üstünde tıbbi
incelemeler yapıldığından bahsetmiştir. Bununla birlikte uzaylıların uzay
gemilerine dair bazı teknik bilgileri ve çizimleri kamuoyu ile paylaşmıştır.

On January 25, 1967, homemaker Betty Andreasson and her family were
astounded when the electricity in their home suddenly went out and a bright
red light shined in through their kitchen window. When the family looked
outside, they saw five creatures "hopping" towards their house; the
creatures then came straight through the solid wood door and instantly put
the entire Andreasson clan into a trance.
Betty Andreasson under hypnotic regression
The aliens were described by Betty and her father as being short and without
usual human characteristics, and one of them was clearly the leader. They
communicated only telepathically, and Betty felt calm and unconcerned even
while everyone but herself and her father were in a state of suspended
animation. Betty was then taken aboard a spacecraft and was given invasive (and
sometimes painful) examinations. Roughly four hours later, Betty was
returned to her family and the aliens released them all from their trance
and hypnotized Betty so that she would forget much about her time on the
Eight years later, still plagued by the vague memories of her experience,
Betty underwent twelve months of extensive psychiatric evaluations and a
slew of psychological and medical tests, including regressive hypnosis and
polygraphs (lie-detectors). After all was said and done, it was determined
that Betty was sane and believed everything about her very vivid alien
abduction experience. Her case is one of the most famous UFO abduction cases
Therefore the earliest printed reference I can find to this species is in
the Raymond Fowler's 1978 book The Andreasson Affair about the alleged
abduction of Betty Andreasson in January of 1967.

they appear to be serviced
The idea of magnetic energy to initiate flight, has been a focus for the
lack of sound and movement of UFOs. According to the, Andreasson Affair
books, the possibility of this type of craft may be a reality. Betty
Andreasson created a series of technical drawings which show a craft using
magnetic energy for flight, mainly from the use of a device called, the
Toroid. Here is an explanation of how it works:
The largest component of the lower section of the craft is a toroidal
casing specifically manufactured so that its cross-section is three-pointed
and that all three corners, or edges of the toroid (or arced-toroid),
exhibit three different degrees of acuteness - such a structure points
to the laws of electrostatics... any volume made up of varying curves
and sharp points exhibits a variety of electrical densities at those
curves and points when the whole is charged up electrically. This UFO
displays such technology in abundance.
Contained inside the toroid is an electrically polarizable fluid that
when rotated round the toroid generates a magnetic field that extends
far outside the craft - exactly what that fluid is contained inside
the toroid is subject to further research, possibly it is a gas in the
form of deuterium gas (deuterium can be electrolyzed out of water as a
'heavy hydrogen' gas and separated from the oxygen of water) which can
be ionized by passing an electric current through it. It could be that
the toroid holds a liquid as simple as water modified in such a way as
to be insulating, but carrying metallic suspensoids so as to generate
UFO described by
I recently started going over a few of the classic UFO encounter / alien
abduction cases in order to update information. The following account
pertains to one of the most documented cases in ufology. Betty Andreasson
Luca, a devout Christian, claimed that she had been abducted by aliens and
was taken before a being of 'intense light and love' called "the One." Her
first abduction occurred during her childhood and culminated with an
abduction experience that involved her whole family. The incident occurred
on the night of January 25, 1967, in the town of South Ashburnham,
Massachusetts. (NOTE: I've included my thoughts on this case at the end of
was in her kitchen around 6:30 PM on the night of her abduction. The rest of
her family, seven children, her mother and father were in the living room.
The lights in the house began to blink, and a red light beamed into the
house through the kitchen window. Betty's kids were on edge after the lights
blinked and she ran to quiet them.
Startled by the red beam, Betty's father ran to look out of the kitchen
window to see where the light was coming from. He was amazed to see five
strange creatures heading toward their house in a hopping motion and
startled when the creatures simply walk through the wooden door of the
kitchen. In a moment, the entire family was put into a type of trance.
Betty's father was attended to by one of the creatures, while another began
to have telepathic conversations with Betty. She and her father both thought
that one of the creatures was the leader who was about five-feet tall. The
other four were approximately a foot shorter. They had very wide eyes, small
ears and noses, set in a pear-shaped head. There were only slits where their
mouth should have been. They only communicated with their minds.
five creatures wore a blue coverall with a wide belt. On their sleeves could
be seen a logo of a bird. Three fingers were on their hands and their feet
were shod with boots. They did not actually walk, but floated as they moved
along. Betty later recalled that she was not frightened by their presence,
but instead, felt rather calm.
Meanwhile, Betty's mother and children were still in a state of suspended
animation. When Betty seemed worried about them, the aliens released her 11-year-old
daughter from the trance to assure her that no harm was being done to her
family. Soon, Betty was taken by the aliens to a waiting craft, which rested
on a hill outside of her home. Betty estimated the craft to be about 20 feet
in diameter and saucer-shaped.
Betty recalls that after she was aboard the craft, it took off and joined a
mother-ship. There she was subjected to a physical examination and the
victim of tests by strange equipment. She was given one test which caused
her pain, but resulted in being a religious awakening. She estimates that
she was gone for four hours before being brought home by two of the aliens.
Returning home, she ran to see the rest of her family. They were yet in some
kind of suspended state. All along, one of the aliens had waited behind with
her family. Finally, they were released from the bonds of the trance and the
aliens left. Betty had been hypnotized and told not to reveal any details of
her experience. Though some of the details of her abduction were temporarily
lost to her, some things she was able to recall. She remembered the power
outage, the red beam of light coming into the house, and the aliens coming
eight years after her experience, she answered an ad from researcher Dr. J.
Allen Hynek. He was soliciting for anyone who may have had an alien
experience. The letter she sent to Hynek was rejected, however, being too
bizarre to be believed. Two more years would transpire before her story
would be investigated. The group of investigators included an electronics
engineer, an aerospace engineer, and telecommunications specialist, a solar
physicist, and a UFO investigator.
Betty's case of alien abduction was very strange and contained much more
information than the average case. For twelve months, Betty was involved in
character analysis, polygraph examinations, psychiatric review, and fourteen
sessions of regressive hypnosis.
The results of this analysis were presented in a 528 page review. The review
basically stated that Betty and daughter were sane individuals, believing in
their experience as presented.
HYPNOTIC REGRESSION TRANSCRIPTS
The following are the exact transcripts from her hypnotic regression when
Betty was regressed to her childhood during one of her first abduction
experiences and her encounter with 'the One.'
We're coming up to this wall of glass and a big, big, big, big, big door.
It's made out of glass.
Does it have hinges?
No. It is so big and there is - I can't explain it. It is door after door
after door after door. He (the alien leading her) is stopping there and
telling me to stop. I'm just stopping there. He says: "Now you shall enter
the door to see the One." And he says, "Fear not."
[Then Betty appeared to undergo an out-of-body experience!]
And I'm standing there and I'm coming out of myself! There's two of me!
There's two of me there!
Are you looking at yourself?
Okay. Do you see the One yet?
The One? No.
Okay, go on.
I'm coming up to the door, and the little person is saying: "Now you shall
enter the Great Door and see the glory of the One." And I'm standing face to
face with that door.
[Betty now stood before the strange door. Again she described its appearance
and her out-of-body experience.]
There's a big door there, and it is big, but it is strange. It is like
deeper and deeper and deeper. And it's bright, really bright. And I have to
stand before the door. But, before that, I came out of myself. I was just
standing over there, and I was standing over here. There were two of me, but
that one over there was stiff.
Have you tried to talk to your other self?
That won't work, because I'm over here, and that one is over there.
She looks exactly like you? Is she making motions to show you she is alive,
like breathing, moving her arms?
Would you say she looks like a wax museum piece or something?
No, it looks just like me.
All right, go on.
I was told to come forward. I went in the door, and it's very bright. I
can't take you any further.
What do you mean, because?
I can't take you past this door.
Okay, I'll tell you what. You go past that door alone then for a few minutes,
[Time and again, the hypnotist tried in different ways to induce Betty to
tell him what was behind the door - all in vain.]
Sometime maybe, if you change your mind, would you tell me?
I can't change my mind. It is set.
What would happen to you if you did tell me?
I can't tell you. I'm sorry.
Okay, let's proceed to the first thing you can tell me. Fair enough?
Oh! [Betty's face glows with joy]
What's happening now?
I'm coming out of that door, and it was wonderful!
Did the One say something exciting?
I can't tell you. I'm sorry.
Would you say that the One was God?
Do you really know what God is?
I don't know. I was hoping that you had seen him and could therefore tell me.
I can't tell you about that.
Okay, let's proceed. What's happening now? You just came out of the room,
and you feel great.
I come out of the door, and there is a tall white-haired man standing there
and he's got on a long nightgown.
[The next session took place on May 15, 1980. Determined to find out what
lay behind the Great Door, the hypnotist again brought Betty back in time to
where she was standing before it.]
Where are you?
I'm before this huge great big door. It's glass. Layers and layers of glass.
What are you standing on?
Let me ask you now: You're going to see the One now, right?
Why are you going to see the One?
Because it is time for me, they said, for me to go home to see the One.
All right, in other words, does this imply that the One is someone that you
have seen before?
I don't remember.
Okay. Do you know why it is time to see the One? Why haven't you asked
They haven't been there very often. Those little people haven't been there
very much for me to ask.
Yeah, but they are asking you to do a lot of things, shall we say.
I know. But, I'm in their place. I can't do anything.
Okay. In a moment you're going to see the One, right? We don't want to waste
the experience. We want to get the most out of it. So when you see the One,
I want you to ask yourself: "What am I getting out of this? Why am I here?
And, what will this mean to me later on in my life?" It's like any big
experience a person is allowed to have. Okay? I want you to progress to
where the door is open and you are seeing the One.
[At that very moment, an indescribable smile came over Betty's face. The
only adjective that the investigators could think of to describe it is
rapturous. This expression of pure, unrestricted happiness remained on
Betty's face as the hypnotist continued to question her.]
You seem happy. Why are you so happy?
It's just - ah, I just, I can't tell you about it.
All right. I know you can't tell me, but I want you to do a few things. I
want you to ask yourself why you are being shown that which you are being
shown. In other words, you weren't given this trip just for a free ride, so
to speak. They want you to see what you are seeing. Does that make sense?
All right. Now that you're there, ask yourself: "What am I getting out of
this? Why am I here? What am I supposed to think about after I leave here?"
Oh, it matters not what I get from it.
What do you mean?
It's - words cannot explain it. It's wonderful. It's for everybody. I just
can't tell you this.
You can't? Okay, why can't you?
For one thing, it's too overwhelming and it is - it is indescribable. I just
can't tell you. Besides it's just impossible for me to tell you.
All right. Are you capable, when looking around you, to tell yourself?
I see it.
Right. That which you can see, you have a grasp of even if you don't
I understand it. I'm sorry. I'm just sorry. I wish I could share it with you.
Were you told not to share it with me?
It is like even if I was able to speak it, I wouldn't be able to speak it. I
can't. I'm sorry.
Were you specifically told not to speak it?
How was it expressed to you?
I can't tell you those things. I'm sorry.
All right. Can we let the beings speak through you? Suppose you just relax,
and I'll put my hand on your shoulder and with each number you will go
deeper and deeper. When I reach three, you will just relax and allow the
beings to speak through you. One, two, three.
[Betty began speaking in a strange tongue.]
Okay, Betty, can you explain to me so that I could understand what you have
[Betty begins crying] Father loves the world so very much.
And so many reject him.
Uh huh, okay. You said a lot of words. Can you explain more of what you said?
They will be felt by those who believe and have faith. They will feel the
love radiating from them.
Okay, where are you now?
I'm where there is light.
And what do you see?
I cannot tell you this.
Okay, that's all right. Let me ask you. Do you feel much love, the same love,
or any different degree of love now than you have before?
It's a greater love.
Okay. When will I understand all of the words that the being said through
When you allow the Spirit to come upon you and you are filled with that love.
Do you understand all the words that you have said?
I understand them, but they will not come forth.
Okay, I'm trying to understand. I'm not trying to ask you to divulge
anything, all right? You understand them, but you can't express them?
They're in my heart.
More like a feeling than a concept?
They're in my heart, in my mind, in my body.
Okay, could you explain this to your children?
[During this hypnotic session, Betty was regressed to a childhood experience
when she was single with no children.]
If you have children someday. The words that you spoke, while they had a
message of love in them, did they also have a warning?
Yes. Those that do not have love have nothing. Love is the answer.
[Again the hypnotist failed to elicit the information that he sought
regarding what Betty had experienced while behind the Great Door. With
endless patience, he tried yet again.]
Okay. You've seen the One. Do you feel different about anything now than you
Everything is so wonderful!
Is there anybody that you don't like?
There are some people, shall we say, that aren't as nice as other people,
No, everybody is nice. They are just growing, that's all. If one doesn't
understand another one, they are just growing, that's all.
Okay, just relax. You've been to see the One and now everything is a little
I understand that everything is one.
What do you mean?
Everything fits together. Everything is one. It's beautiful! No matter what
[Betty's experience with the One ends here.]
January 25, 1967, South Ashburnham,
Massachusetts. Aliens enter Betty
Andreasson's home and take her to
undergo a spiritual experience.
Eventually the entire family became
involved in this strange abduction case
An Interview with Betty (Andreasson) Luca
- by Brent Raynes - Highly
respected and one of the better known UFO abductees, the subject of five
books by the distinguished Raymond E. Fowler, Betty Ann (Andreasson) Luca
answers our questions. Furthermore, I suspect well be hearing much more
about Betty in the near future. She mentioned that the situation for her and
her husband Bob is still ongoing, and that much of the information she
received and collected from the Beings over the years has been given careful
study, and that two researchers in particular have recently managed to
decipher part of the work, and uncover some very profound and important
Editor: Initially, back in 1967, you and members of your family suffered a
very disturbing series of memories revolving around a certain experience
that happened at your home in South Ashburnham, Massachusetts. For a good
number of years afterwards you tried to interest someone in the UFO
community to look into what had occurred, but it wasnt until a team of
investigators headed by Raymond E. Fowler that your situation got serious
attention, correct? Can you describe what those early years was like, and
the effect that it had on you and your family?
Betty Ann Luca: When my 1967 UFO encounter happened, only a small portion of
memory was attained at the time by me, even though other members of my
family were present such as my father, mother and seven children. However,
three days after the experience, my eleven year old daughter Becky came to
me concerning short dreams she was having of the unusual Beings in our house.
Many years later my father had recall of the initial visit from the Beings,
but had not wanted to get involved and was concerned for my welfare over me
telling others about it. He was on Disability and feared the government
would hurt him somehow through his Social Security.
This is how my UFO experience actually came to be public. There was a Von
Daniken article in the rag- tag paper called The Enquirer. In it he was
reporting about ancient crafts. I was moved to write a letter to the
newspaper about Von Danikens story, and the Enquirer sent my letter back
and stamped it in red, UFO! Which surprised me for I knew nothing about UFOs.
Then a few years later an article appeared in a local newspaper asking
anyone that had a sighting to contact a Dr. Hynek of CUFOS, Center for UFO
Studies. I remembered the red stamped ufo on my return letter from the
Enquirer and thought to send him everything I had remembered of my odd
experience. So I sent the information I remembered of the silence, the
blinking orange red lights outside the pantry window, and description of the
Beings coming into my kitchen. Dr. Hynek filed my letter away for two years
until a Massachusetts volunteer group of researchers wanting to study any
humanoid UFO case in their area, contacted CUFOS and requested if there were
any such cases. Thats when he sent my letter and address to them. I was
contacted by Jules Vailencourt by telephone, and he later visited us to see
if we were willing to find out what happened. And thats how it all began.
Jules would drive us to Beverly, to the hypnotists office. We were
questioned concerning what we remembered, then Dr. Edlestien hypnotized us,
and after each session we were questioned some more. Each session was about
an hour or more and by the time we returned home we were exhausted and at
times had to take a nap from the long day. At times I was left in subliminal
hypnosis and through the week began to have very strong flash backs occur.
Which scared me! I wanted to quit and expressed it over the phone to Jules.
He pleaded with me to please continue. That others had experienced things
that I had happen. Because the memories I was remembering seemed like
science fiction, I asked if there was any way it could be checked or
verified, to see if I was imagining, lying, or going insane from the
detailed experience flooding my mind. If so I would need help! This opened
the door for lie detector tests to be used on both my daughter and I, and
spontaneous psychiatric checks to take place. Which made the investigators
happy, for they wanted to do this, but did not know how to approach the
issue without adding more stress to the situation of what happened to us.
Later when the Andreasson Affair was published there was a whirlwind of
media coverage! It was exceptionally frantic when Raymond Fowler, my new
husband Bob, and I had to promote the A.A. book on radio and television, and
newspaper/magazine interviews across the country. All the attention was
scarey. I was somewhat shy, and didnt like to be known as the lady who had
a weird thing happen to her! In the earlier years after I had sent the
letter to Dr. Hynek I felt relieved and everything returned to normal family
life. We had a mini farm with Molly our cow, calves, pigs and chickens and
large garden to care for, besides seven children and my first husbands
father whod had a stroke and was living with us. And then after an
anniversary party, my now ex-husband had too much to drink, was incarcerated
over night and disappeared the next day for many months. That was when the
investigation of my case began, and some months later my two sons died in an
Editor: As the hypnotic exploration continued, repressed memories that
extended back to childhood events were also recovered. There were certainly
many startling revelations. Ray Fowler even began to recognize symptoms of
the UFO abduction experience within himself and his own family. How did this
evolving situation change things for you?
Betty Ann Luca: Yes, Dr. Edelstien tried to take me back to a childhood
experience. And did break through to an area that was dark. It was silent
and three gray forms stood motionless in a misty darkness. I became
extremely fearful over what I saw. Dr. Edelstein quickly pulled me out of
hypnosis, and did not want to pursue the experience any further than what
had been recalled, due to such a strong emotional response from me at the
time. It would be many years later that hypnotist Fred Max would manage to
take me safely back to my childhood encounters with the grey Beings. As Ray
Fowler began to recall his and his families own UFO experiences, he wanted
to delve deeper into the repressed memories, however his wife was not
comfortable with it. For she also had witnessed disturbing and unusual
things take place with Ray. Ray tried to comfort her misgivings concerning
the possibility of family involvement with the phenomena. Just knowing she
was fearful for her families safety, I felt uncomfortable each time I had to
call Ray and report another unusual experience happening to us.
Editor: Now, all of these years later, where have the memories and
revelations taken you?
Betty Ann Luca: After all the experiences, exposure, and integration of this
other dimension of reality, I feel more aware of life, its complexities, and
how like a river it flows calmly onward to awaken the human race toward
Editor: What do you possibly foresee as the future for humankind with
regards to the ongoing UFO contact phenomenon?
Betty Ann Luca: The more we learn of the unknown the greater understanding
of who we are emerges. Facing new and unusual experiences enhances our
spiritual development. Why, and what for, such contact takes place, may open
a door to greater knowledge of the hidden world that surrounds us. Man is
resilient and can survive as long as he recognizes there are certain forces
that exist, that may or may not be controlled, whether physical or spiritual,
good or bad. They rest in Gods hands, whose Will is greater than ours.
Editor: What role do you feel that your Christian faith has played in your
rising above the initial trauma of the 1967 abduction and the positive
spiritual level which youve arrived at since?
Betty Ann Luca: My Christian belief is and has been the most important thing
in my life, since I was sixteen, when I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal
Savior. I believed the Beings I experienced to be angelic. Although the 1967
encounter was strange, and the grey Beings were not as I envisioned an angel
to look like. It did not frighten me when they entered my home. For I knew
and know I am in the Lords care. I was at a positive level back then, and
it has been enhanced now for many years. First, through belief in the word
of God. Second from all the visitations. And third seeing most all the
information the Beings have related to me has been coming to pass.
Editor: Do you think that the UFO phenomenon can be adequately addressed as
a physical hard nuts and bolts science alone, or do you feel that
spirituality must also be included in this quest?
Betty Ann Luca: No, I dont think the UFO phenomenon can be adequately
addressed alone as physical hard nuts and bolts science. When God made
heaven and earth it was first spiritually made. Heaven and earth was spirit.
But it was without a form and was void. There was actually no visible form
and it was empty. It was only after the spiritual image was created that a
physical form followed which was filled with substance to complete the work.
When we see the nuts and bolts, we are looking at the forms without
realizing it exists because of Spirit. Nothing can exist until it is spirit.
The spiritual part of the UFO phenomena is not considered because we look at
the material form only. The spirit rests within the finished product. Faith
is spiritual. As the scripture says, faith is the substance hoped for, the
evidence not seen. Faith is the power of spirit that creates form and
substance into existence. Anything that has become was first spirit, thought,
word, or idea. Most definitely, in order to understand the UFO phenomenon,
spirituality must be present.
The Betty Andreasson Alien Abduction
In the city of South Ashburnham, Massachusetts on the night
of January 25, 1967, one of the most celebrated cases of UFO abduction
began. Betty Andreasson was working in her kitchen while her seven
children, mother, and father were in the living room.
Shortly after 6:30, the lights in the house briefly blinked.
Immediately thereafter, a reddish light began to beam through the kitchen
window. The sudden darkness in the house set the kids nerves on edge, and
Betty ran to comfort them. Her father ran into the kitchen to peer out the
window, and find the source of the unusual light.
To his utter shock, he saw five odd-looking beings coming toward the
house with a hopping motion!
Before he could regain his composure, he saw the beings walk right
through the wooden door! What happened next would test the imagination and
strength of even an open-minded, adventurous person. The entire family was
suddenly put into a state of suspended animation.
One of the creatures went to Betty's father, while one of the other
four began to make telepathic communication with Betty. One of the group
seemed to be a leader of sorts.
He was about five-feet tall. The other four appeared to be about a foot
shorter. All of the beings had a pear-shaped head, with wide eyes, and
small ears and noses. Their mouths were only slits, and never moved,
though they were able to communicate through their minds.
The beings wore a type of coverall, blue in color, with a wide belt.
There also was a logo of a bird on their sleeves. The hands only had three
fingers, and they wore boots. The creatures did not move as a human, but
floated as they went. Betty would later relate that, though she was
frightened, she felt a sense of calm, even friendship toward the beings.
The aliens were holding Betty's children in a frozen state of
consciousness, but when Betty showed concern for them, the aliens released
her 11-year-old daughter, to assure her the children were not being harmed.
Betty was taken by the aliens outside to a waiting craft which
rested on the side of a sloping back yard. The craft was estimated to be
about 20 feet in diameter, in the classic UFO shape.
Betty believes that after she was aboard the craft, it joined a "mother"
craft, where she underwent a physical examination, and also was subjected
to the effects of strange equipment.
After this, she was given a type of bizarre test, which caused her pain
at first, but resulted in a kind of religious experience. Approximately
four hours later, she was returned to her home by two of her captors. When
she arrived, her entire family was still in a state of suspended animation.
One of the beings had stayed in her house, evidently to watch the other
family members. After releasing the family from the trancelike state, the
Betty would later state that the aliens had hypnotized her to not
recall any of her experience until a designated time to be determined
later. She was able to recall only certain things at the time of her
experience; the power outage, the red light through the kitchen window,
and the aliens entering the house.
Before this bizarre happening, Betty had little or no knowledge of UFO
folklore, and being a devoted Christian, she believed that the abduction
had a religious meaning. It would be later until she began to view the
abduction as alien in nature.
Eight years later Betty answered an ad from Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who was
soliciting abduction experiences from the general public. Her letter was
dismissed at the time, because of its unusual details, and it would be
January 1977, before her story would be fully investigated.
The investigative team assigned to the Andreasson case included a solar
physicist, and electronics engineer, an aerospace engineer, a
telecommunications specialist, and a UFO investigator.
The service of a hypnotist, and a medical doctor trained in psychiatry
were also used. Betty's case involved twelve months of investigation.
She was given a character-reference check, two lie-detector tests, a
psychiatric review, and an excruciating fourteen sessions of regressive
The results of this inquiry were startling. Betty, along with her
daughter, relived a detailed account of a UFO experience, agreeing on all
basic aspects. The results were published in a 528 page account, which
stated that Betty and her daughter were sane individuals, who sincerely
believe all of the details given in their statements. The Betty Andreasson
abduction case is still being investigated today.
The Alien Abduction of Betty Andreasson Luca
When the majority of society thinks about the alien abduction phenomenon
it only makes them turn their backs in confusion and disbelief.
However, we must confront this issue, as
it is an integral part of the UFO mystery. Although the alien abduction
phenomenon itself may seem unlikely, some abductions fall into the truly
bizarre category. One such case is the abduction of Betty Andreasson
Luca that occurred in the town of South Ashburnham, Massachusetts (USA).
This riveting case has become a mainstay of UFO literature.
The red light:
On the evening of January 25, 1967, at
about 6:30 pm (18:30 hrs.), Betty Andreasson was in her kitchen while
her seven children, mother and father were in the living room. Suddenly
the house lights began to blink for a moment and a pulsating reddish-orange
beam of light entered the house through the kitchen window. Betty's kids
were frightened after the lights blinked and she ran from the kitchen to
Beings walk through the door:
Her father startled by the red beam of
light rushed to look out the kitchen window. To his utter shock, he saw
five strange creatures heading toward their house in a hopping motion.
Before he could regain his composure, he was stunned to see the beings
enter the house right through the wooden door in the kitchen.
Immediately, the entire family was put into a type of trance.
One of the creatures went to attend
Bettys father, while another began to have telepathic conversations
with Betty. She and her father thought that the creature with whom she
had the telepathic conversation was the leader. He was about five-feet
(1.5 meters) tall while the other four were approximately a foot (30
Description of the beings:
All had large pear-shaped heads, very
large catlike wraparound eyes, and diminutive ears and noses. Their
mouths were immobile slits that reminded Betty of scar lines and only
communicated with their minds. Each wore a tight-fitted
blue coverall uniform adorned with a Sam Browne-type belt. An insignia
of a bird was affixed to their sleeves. Their hands had three digits. (Later,
on the craft, they were gloved.) They wore boot-like attire on their
They did not actually walk, but floated as
they moved along. Betty later would recall that she was not frightened
by their presence, but instead, felt calm. Meanwhile, Betty's mother and
children were still in a state of suspended animation. When Betty seemed
worried about them, the aliens temporarily released her 11-year-old
daughter, Becky, from the trance to assure her that no harm was being
done to her family.
Betty escorted outside:
Then the aliens took Betty outside to a
waiting craft, which rested on a hill in the backyard of her house.
Betty estimated the craft to be about twenty feet (6 meters) in diameter
and looked like two saucers, one inverted upon the other, with a small
superstructure on top.
The craft took off and apparently merged
with the mother-ship where Betty was subjected to a physical examination
with the effects of strange equipment. Then she was taken to an alien
place where she was subjected to a bizarre test that caused her pain at
first, but resulted in an ecstatic religious-like experience.
Gone for four hours:
She estimated that she was gone for four
hours before being brought home by two of the aliens. Upon returning
home, she ran to see the rest of her family. They were yet in some kind
of suspended state. All along, one of the beings had stayed in her house,
evidently to watch over the rest of the family members. Finally, after
releasing the family from the trancelike state, the aliens left.
Before they left, Betty had been
hypnotized and told not to reveal any details of her experience until a
designated time to be determined later. However, some of the details of
her abduction were temporarily lost to her, some things she was able to
recall. She remembered the power outage, the red beam of light coming
into the house, and the aliens coming in.
A wide range of investigators gather:
Some eight years later, in 1975, Betty
responded to a local newspaper story about UFO researcher Dr. J. Allen
Hynek, who was soliciting personal UFO experience information from the
public. The letter she sent to Hynek was rejected, however, being too
bizarre to be believed. Two more years would transpire before her story
would be investigated. The group of investigators included an
electronics engineer, an aerospace engineer, and telecommunications
specialist, a solar physicist, and a UFO investigator. They employed the
services of a professional hypnotist and a medical doctor trained in
During a twelve-month investigation, they
conducted an extensive character-reference check, two lie-detector tests,
a psychiatric interview, and fourteen lengthy hypnotic regression
sessions. Under hypnosis, Betty and her daughter relived a consistent,
detailed UFO experience with genuine physiological reactions. Their
three-volume, 528-page report led to the conclusion that the witnesses
were reliable and sane individuals who sincerely believed the experience
had really occurred. And Betty, along with her daughter, agreed in all
basic details of the case.
Betty's case of alien abduction is very
strange, yet a very good case to study because it shows that no matter
how bizarre or weird the majority of society finds the alien abduction
phenomenon, there are cases that can be proven factual based on the
inexhaustible and meticulous investigation conducted such as in the
Betty Andreasson Luca case. This incident can be determined to be true
in the court of law based on the multiple witnesses and the ample
investigators from different fields that got involved in the case.

There are, every once
in a while, stories that stand out for some reason. Perhaps they are well
told, or have clever twist endings, or provide some sort of sorely needed
moral guidance. The story of Betty Andreasson stands out mostly because it
is one of the strangest things I have ever heard, and I would not feel that
I would be exaggerating were I to call it the pure, undiluted, distilled
essence of weirdness.
Betty Andreasson, in
1967, was not the kind of person youd expect to see in this column. A
housewife in New England, she lived a fairly normal and uneventful life,
until one day when a surprise visit by unexpected guests thrust her into the
limelight of the UFO enthusiast community. As she stood in the pantry, there
was a sudden power outage and, just as suddenly, a red light began to shine
through the windows of the house. Moments later, several of the standard
lightbulb-headed, big-eyed, no-nosed, gray little aliens entered the room by
passing straight through the wooden door. They were four feet tall, except
for one of them who seemed to be a leader, who was about a foot taller. They
all wore military-type blue overalls with some sort of sash or lanyard
across the chest, and wore a badge with the figure of a bird on their
sleeves. Despite the fact that they wore heavy boots, they did not walk;
they floated a little bit off the ground.
The shorter aliens
went about the home and put her large family (her 7 children and her parents)
into a state of suspended animation. For obvious reasons, Andreasson became
afraid that the aliens were hurting her kinfolk, and an alien was nice
enough to revive one of Andreassons daughters, let the daughter say that
everything was okay, and then freeze her again.
Andreasson, for some
reason, felt a feeling of peace and friendship towards these kidnappers from
outer space, and went outside with them to a small flying saucer, which took
her to the mother-ship. There she was subjected to the regular gamut of
tests, experiences with odd equipment, a physical examination, and some sort
of minor surgery that went from being extremely painful to a religious
experience with great speed.
Heres where things
get a bit strange. At some point, the alien beings communicated to her (telepathically,
of course) that they shared her devout love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus
Christ, and that he would be coming back fairly soon. They showed her an
image of a Phoenix rising from its own ashes, which was meant to symbolize
humanitys ability to rise from the ashes of its own destruction which,
apparently, was due to happen sooner rather than later. The beings then led
her to a giant door, wherein lived a being that Andreasson has taken to
calling The One. He imparted some great, secret knowledge to her that,
apparently, she is not allowed to recall under hypnosis.
After her meeting with
The One, things got back onto the normal UFO storyline. She was taken back
to her family about four hours later, had her memory erased, and neither she
nor her family remembered any of it.
Several years later,
at what Andreasson would later claim to be what the aliens decided was the
appointed time for her to begin preaching her tale of space-salvation, she
began to suspect that something odd had happened to her. I find it not
unimportant that this appointed time was shortly after reading an article
in a tabloid magazine about UFOs. She wrote a letter to a group of UFO
enthusiasts who filed the letter away until some enterprising researchers,
looking for unsolved cases in their neighborhood, found it and began
investigating. They brought with them all the tools of their trade, which is
to say a hypnotist and a distinct lack of cynicism as to the reliability of
Over the course of
hypnotizing Betty Andreasson the hypnotist, one Raymond Fowler, became
convinced that he too had been abducted by space aliens. He went on to write
five books on the subject, all of which are along the general lines of the
mainstream UFO story (breeding program, master race, so on and so forth) but
with a healthy dose of a sort of Star-Trek-meets-Seventh-Heaven religious
There are a couple of
things that seem odd to me about this case.
First, although people often equate their alien abduction with a religious
experience, I dont think I have ever heard anyone claim that space aliens
subscribe to a specific set of human religious beliefs. Well, other than
Mormons, though since I dont know much about their relationship to the
planet Kolob, I say this mostly in jest.
description of the aliens. Why they would wear heavy boots when they float
through the air, other than for reasons of sheer style, is beyond me. The
bird insignia on their sleeve is also something that, while aliens are
occasionally said to be wearing clothing, stands out as odd. Not only do the
aliens look a fair deal like humans, but they share similar taste in
clothing and, on their home planet, have flora and fauna that apparently
closely resemble that of earths. Not impossible, mind you, but odd. It
should be further noted that the outfit she describes the aliens as wearing
was a fairly common motif in sci-fi movies and television shows of the day:
for some reason, travelers from beyond the stars like to dress like US Air
The timing of
Andreassons revelation that she is a special person, an instrument through
which the aliens want to spread their holy message of peace and love in
Jesus, strikes me as odd. Between the time of her alleged abduction and the
relevation, she not only went through a divorce, but two of her young sons
were killed in an automobile accident. This is not something of which I want
to make light in any way, shape, or form, but I hope the general public will
forgive me for saying that if only after living through severe emotional
trauma you realize you were abducted by aliens, I am somewhat suspicious as
to the exact nature of the incident.
There's another wierd
thing about Andreasson's tale. Over time, her description of the aliens that
jumped her have changed. The early pictures, drawn before the movie
Close Encounters of the Third Kind came out, showed aliens with eyes
that had whites and pupils. The later drawings show aliens with entirely
black eyes. The first three pictures above (left to right) were drawn in
1977; the two on the right were drawn in 1980, after the film came out. The
aliens went from having regular eyes to the all-black type of eyes that were
featured in the film. That doesn't mean she was influenced by popular
culture, but it certainly does raise a number of questions.
People claim that this
is an extremely important case because later Andreassons children
acknowledged their own memories of being abducted by flying saucer people.
The mainstream UFO story now has it that individuals are not abducted; whole
lineages are abducted. This is for reasons of the alien breeding program
with which they shall create a master race to supplant humanity as the
inhabitants of the earth; they like to follow certain genetic strains, so on
and so forth.
My explanation is much
simpler and does not involve people from beyond the stars and their exotic
sexual deviancies. My father was an engineer. I am an engineer. My sons, if
I ever have them and if they know what is good for them, will be engineers.
Im not part of some space-person breeding program; its just that, during
my formative years, my home was a very scientific-y sort of place. It should
be no surprise that in being raised in a household with strong scientific
leanings, I became interested in science. The same can be said about UFO
enthusiasts. If youre raised in a home with someone interested in UFOs who
later decides they were the victim of outer-space kidnappers, it doesnt
take a brain surgeon to see that you will probably think along the same
lines. Naturally, in true Romeo and Juliet style, children dont always
believe their parents beliefs, but as a rule of thumb, I find very little
merit in the breeding program explanation.
In the end, the UFO
enthusiast will say that since there is no proof that Andreasson is lying,
confused, or insane, she must be telling the truth, lucid, and completely
sane. We differ in that I believe since there is no proof that shes telling
the truth, is not confused, or that she is sane, one way or another her
story must be false. No matter which position you take, you must admit that
the absolute and total lack of irrefutable physical proof, aside from taking
her word for it, certainly raises potent doubts about the accuracy of her
Be seeing you.
