9. Chris Augustin
In the annals of UFO lore, Area 51 is legendary. It’s a U.S. Air Force base in Nevada, and there’s no doubt that it’s a top-secret facility. This fact makes it a honeypot for those that believe the U.S. is hiding UFO evidence from the American public. One such person is Chris Augustin. He decided that he wanted to see Area 51 for himself.
It was August 2001 when Augustin tried to access Area 51 to see what secrets it might harbor. His story is that he was buzzed by a black helicopter, which then left him. According to Augustin, months were to pass before he was abducted by aliens for the first – but not the only – time. Augustin, who claims he’s had a piece of metal surgically implanted in his leg by aliens, is now a fixture on the alien-conspiracy lecture circuit.
8. Betty Andreasson Luca
It was January 25, 1967 and Betty Andreasson Luca was in the kitchen of her South Ashburnham, Massachusetts, home. Her mother and father and her seven kids were in the living room. The story goes that at about 6:30 p.m., the lights in the house started to flicker. Meanwhile, a shaft of red light shone through the kitchen window. Then, apparently, Betty’s startled dad ran into the kitchen and saw five peculiar figures enter the house straight through the solid door.
