The internet is abuzz with reports that New Hampshire has put up an official historic marker for the first widely reported alien abduction. A prominent example is “Betty And Barney Hill UFO Abduction Story Commemorated On Official N.H. Highway Plaque” at Huffington Post:
New Hampshire — the “Live Free or Die” state — has done something that may surprise UFO believers as well as skeptics. It has just erected a historical marker commemorating the 50th anniversary close encounter of Betty and Barney Hill.
We can only hope that the truth is out there!
