Betty and Barney Hill were an American couple who claimed to have been abducted by extraterrestrials on September 19–20, 1961.
The couple's story, called the Hill Abduction, and occasionally the Zeta Reticuli Incident, was that they had been kidnapped for a short time by a UFO. Theirs was the first widely-publicized claim of alien abduction, adapted into the best-selling 1966 book "The Interrupted Journey" and the 1975 television movie "The UFO Incident".
Its importance is such that many of Betty Hill's notes, tapes and other items have been placed in a permanent collection at the University of New Hampshire, her alma mater. As of July 2011, the site of the alleged abduction is marked by a state historical marker.
