Exhibit at science center in New Hampshire commemorating Hill UFO event

NH discovery center opens UFO exhibit – Boston.com.

The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center is marking the 50th anniversary of a New Hampshire couple’s famous UFO encounter …

Betty and Barney Hill were heading home from a vacation on Sept. 19, 1961, when they reportedly saw a flat, cigar-shaped craft hovering over them in the White Mountains.

Weird. Why would I want to see the dress Betty was wearing?

Also, a movie based on their experience is on the way.

    Actually, since she claims that a stain on it might be from the abduction, it would be something worthwhile … if one were to give the story any credence (which amongst others, the original hypnotist did not). And hey, it’s more physical evidence from the “event” (even if it isn’t evidence of anything) than at the UFO Museum in Roswell.

    I long ago gave up being surprised or depressed by a lot of behavior in science museums. You can see images of the exhibit at the link below. If I thought there was going to be an actual discussion of it, given that it has been fairly examined over the years, that could actually be good. But it looks more like just a “we have these things, they’re sort of famous, let’s go” attempt.

    The STAIN on her DRESS is (PHYSICAL) evidence that to this day, even as of (2012),SCIENTIST that examine and TEST the STAIN with ***(DNA)*** testing don’t know what that STAIN is! That is ****(REAL PROOF)****!!!

    People WE EXIST on this (REAL) planet called (EARTH). There are ***(BILLIONS)*** of PLANETS, STARS and GALAXIES out in our vast UNIVERSE. You mean to tell me that if **(WE)**, that there CANNOT be at least 1 OTHER planet SOMEWHERE in our VAST universe that is like EARTH??!!

      Anyone who posts in caps… Out. Shouting REAL PROOF doesn’t make it so.
