The 1967 Betty Andreasson Alien Abduction


The alien abduction that allegedly took place on the night of January 25, 1967, from a South Ashburnham, Massachusetts home is different from most other extraterrestrial abductions in that it was not only witnessed by the abductee’s entire family it also had a religious twist. (Apparently the aliens were either Christian or shared Christian-like beliefs.)
 
At around 6:30 p.m. following a brief power outage, a reddish beam of light shone through a window illuminating the kitchen in which Betty Andreasson was working. Startled by the light and in search of its source, Betty’s father entered and parting the curtains peered outside. Shocked he watched five diminutive beings approach the house and upon reaching the door walk through it. Once inside, the creatures placed Betty’s father along with her mother and her seven children who were relaxing in the living room into a trancelike state.

While the aliens examined the humans, Betty unafraid calmly examined the aliens; short with bulbous heads, wide eyes, a slit of a mouth and three fingered hands they were dressed in a blue uniform with birdlike insignias on their sleeves and appeared to be levitating.

Four of them escorted the bemused housewife aboard their vessel while one alien remained with her family. Once onboard she was subjected to an operation in which an item (a tracking device?) that had been implanted during an earlier encounter was removed. [1]


Betty (a Christian fundamentalist) states she believed the beings to have been angels and that they telepathically communicated their shared love for Jesus Christ intimating that he would be returning soon to save humanity from an approaching apocalypse. It seems that there was also a meeting with some mysterious being which she called “The One” who imparted some great secret.

Following this meeting she was apparently returned to her family and everyone herself included was subjected to some sort of memory wipe, the entire episode remaining a blank until she was subjected to regressive hypnosis by the hypnotist/member of an investigative team assigned by noted professor, astronomer, ufologist and founder of the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) Dr. J. Allen Hynek. Other members of the team apparently included a physicist, two engineers, a telecommunications specialist and a psychiatrist. The investigation continued for over a year and included both background checks and polygraph (lie detector) tests.

The general consensus of the investigation was that both Betty and her daughter Becky [2] sincerely believed themselves to have been abducted by space aliens. As for what other family members believed, her father has since passed on, her ex-husband has disappeared and her two sons have died in an automobile accident; remaining family members who were part of the "Incident" are apparently vague on the subject.

Subsequent to the abduction becoming public knowledge there was a publicity tour which included news, radio and television interviews, along with lectures and book signings to publicize “The Andreasson Affair” by author, researcher, hypnotist and investigative team member Raymond Fowler, who at some point during the investigation came to believe that he too was abducted by extraterrestrials.

Betty has since remarried, her present husband Bob Luca is also a purported abductee.


[1] Betty apparently has memories of other extraterrestrial encounters (some revealed under hypnosis), the earliest in 1944.

[2] Becky has memories of alien abductions of her own, some which occurred before and some that occurred after her mother’s alleged 1967 abduction.
