Identifying the unidentified

And while I'm linking to Jim Macdonald at Making Light, I must link his post about Alien Abduction: Betty & Barney Hill.

Today, this very day, forty-six years ago, Betty and Barney Hill drove down U.S. 3, right past my house and into history. They were about to become Patient Zero for Alien Abductions with Weird Medical Experiments, Missing Time, and Big-Eyed Extraterrestrials. The first and (we are told) best documented case of Alien Abduction Evah. There was a book. There was a made-for-TV movie. Magazine articles. Mentions in other books. Close Encounters of the Third Kind. X-Files.

So what happened out on Route 3?
Jim, who lives in the area, retraces the route, and reveals all.
