The Travis Walton UFO Incident
The day was November 5, 1975. Travis Walton, a 22-year-old logger working at Sitgreaves National Forest located near Snowflake, Arizona, was travelling home with six of his co-workers. They had just finished their shift and were hoping to arrive home shortly, but their regular, run-of-the-mill commute was quickly turned into a night they’d never forget.
“[There] was a metallic, glowing disc, making some very strange sounds,” said Walton in an interview with Huffington Post.
When the group of loggers approached the disc in their truck, its appearance of course shocked them. That’s when Walton decided to leave the vehicle and move towards the object.
“The closer I got to it, the more scared we all got and they were swearing at me to get away from there, and when I got up close, it suddenly got louder and started to move.
“I jumped for cover and then jumped up to run back to the truck, and that’s when this blast of energy hit me, and I just felt this numbing shock go through my body. But the crew said it threw me through the air 10 or 20 feet and I landed in a way that they were immediately certain it had killed me, and they fled.”
Like something straight from a science fiction mystery film, Walton wasn’t seen for five days. His coworkers reported the incident to the police, who immediately suspected foul play and conducted an intensive investigation into whether or not the other loggers were somehow involved. They were all subjected to multiple polygraphs, psychological and physical tests, but were eventually cleared of any involvement.
When Walton finally reappeared and gave his side of the story, he said he was abducted by the crew of the flying disc. They had taken him on board their ship and had him positioned on an operating table.
“When I was first able to focus my eyes good enough, I was still on the table. And as soon as I saw this face, and knew it wasn’t human, I tried to hit it away from me. They were much smaller than me, and I think that’s the reason they gave up. Once they found out they couldn’t control me, they split. I was absolutely terrified.”
After Walton escaped these child-like aliens, he encountered what appeared to be other humans wearing helmets. They calmed him down and placed a clear mask over his face, which caused him to black out. The next thing he remembers, he awoke next to a highway.
Amazingly, Walton described to Huffington Post that the trees in the vicinity of the supposed alien spacecraft were somehow affected by its presence.
“About 15 years later, it was discovered that the trees nearest to where [the disc] hovered had been producing wood fiber at 36 times the rate it had in the 85 years before that,” explained Walton. “More recently, a complete core sampling revealed that this thickened growth was only on the side of the trees towards, or in the direction that the craft had been.”
Although some believe that the Walton UFO incident is one big hoax, there’s no denying that kind of hard scientific evidence.
Maybe we really aren’t alone.
