Seventeen year old Kristina Florence was on a road trip with her family when their car broke down. She remembers her sister calling her to “come quick” then suddenly her and her sister were lying on a blanket in a park. The next thing she knew they were driving away at high speed. Kristina believes during this missing time she was abducted by aliens.
The Abduction of Kristina Florence

Kristina Florence, a choreographer based in New York, has shared her account of experiencing “missing time” and being abducted by aliens.
Her story dates back to 1974, when she was just seventeen years old and was on a road trip to San Francisco with her mother and sister.
While driving through the Mojave Desert, their car overheated near a park in Barstow, prompting Kristina’s mother to go get water for the radiator.
Meanwhile, Kristina’s sister stepped out of the car and called for them urgently.
The next thing Kristina remembered was waking up on a blanket in the park with her sister beside her.
After that, her memory resumed with them back in the car, driving away at a high speed.
Several years later, Kristina’s sister contacted her to discuss what had happened, and they eventually got in touch with Budd Hopkins.
Kristina told her story to Unsolved Mysteries and the story aired on November 30, 1988.
“Somewhere along the line we got to this park. My sister got out of the car and I heard her run around the back and all of a sudden she said, oh my God, come out here quick. And the next thing I remembered consciously was that we were lying on this blanket in the middle of the park as if we’d had a little nap, just lying there.
Our mom was still not around. And we woke up and we were like, whoa, what happened. And then the next thing I remember, the three of us are just driving like hell.
We never talked about it until my sister just called me up one day and we sort of began to talk about it further and realized that we’d both had this very bizarre memory of this missing time thing. And she knew about Budd and she suggested I get in touch with Budd.”
Who is Budd Hopkins?
Budd Hopkins, once an artist, had a life-changing experience in 1964 when he and some friends had a strange encounter with a UFO. From that point, he devoted himself to researching UFOs and delving into the phenomenon of Missing Time.
As he gathered more information, people who had also witnessed these phenomena reached out to him, sharing their experiences through phone calls and letters. Hopkins authored two books on the topic and based on the evidence he collected, he believes that these experiences are genuine.
He hopes that one day they will cease, given the harm they have caused some individuals, including gynecological issues such as false pregnancies, miscarriages, and attempts to terminate non-existent pregnancies.
Hopkins believes these occurrences are linked to genetic experimentation that extraterrestrial beings are conducting on abductees, taking samples of their sperm and ova. Hopkins advocates for a scientific investigation of the phenomena and has researched numerous cases of Missing Time.

According to Budd Hopkins, Kristina’s “missing time” experience was the result of an alien abduction. To learn more about what happened, Kristina underwent hypnosis.
During the hypnosis session, she recounted that after getting out of the car, she and her sister saw something and then got back into the car, which would not start. The next thing she remembered was waking up on a table surrounded by strange beings.
In the room, she saw dials and a paper screen that was taking pictures of her. The beings put odd rubber pants on her before leaving. Kristina then asked about her sister, and they reassured her that she was fine.
The last thing she recalled through hypnosis was being back on the ground with her sister.
Kristina recounted her experience to Unsolved Mysteries saying:
“Under hypnosis, I started having this picture that my sister’s getting out of the car and then I get out of the car and I looked up and there was something above the car. And I was so scared, I didn’t know what it was… And I was trying to start the car and it wouldn’t start.
Then the next memory that I had under the hypnosis was that I was on a table and there were some people around. There was this screen, it was about as wide as a large television screen but it was paper thin and it was just moving around the table and it wasn’t attached to anything. And I could see three-dimensional shapes of my skull and my whole body.
It was just taking pictures. And it was just this huge spherical room that was just covered with dials, there wasn’t space. It was just dials. And I felt like they put like these rubber pants on me or something with things attached. And then they left the room. And I lay there and I was asking for my sister and somebody was telling me she’s okay, she’s alright… that’s the last thing I remember. Then we were back on the grass.”
Susan Fox, a psychologist, told the show that she is convinced that Kristina’s account is genuine and that her story is entirely truthful.
Theories about Kristina Florence’s Abduction Experience
Some believers claim that abductions such as these are undertaken by extraterrestrials so that they can study humanity, in particular how humans reproductive organs work.
If it’s not aliens what else could be happening here? While some psychologists believe in hypnosis as a means of recovering memory it is not a universally held belief. Many believe “memories” recovered during hypnosis are just the patients imagination.
It is however common for memories of traumatic events to be repressed. Perhaps something traumatic did happen to Kristina and her sister in that fateful day while they were waiting for the car to be repaired and they have both blocked the incident from their memories.
I would be interested to hear what their mother remembers about the incident.

The Blue Man of Studham Common

Many think that over 50 years ago, aliens came to Studham, a peaceful village near Dunstable, Bedfordshire, UK. This belief was sparked by a strange story told by six young boys in January 1967, who said they saw something very unusual.
Six Boys and the Blue Man of Studham
Studham Common, where the boys saw the strange blue man. Was it an alien?
The event occurred on January 28, 1967, around 1:45 p.m., right after lunch. It took place near the Whipsnade Park Zoo, at Studham Common in Bedfordshire, U.K. Five, six, or seven boys, all 10 and 11 years old – Alex Butler, Tony Banks, Terry Cahill, Colin Lonsdale, David Inglis – were involved. They were playing before school started again at 2:00 p.m. at Studham Lower School.
The sky was clear even though it had been raining earlier. The boys were near a footpath leading to a low valley called Dell. This area, full of bushes and trees next to Studham Common, was a great place for them to play hide-and-seek.
The boys were playing and having fun at Studham Common when suddenly a blue lightning bolt appeared nearby. A 10-year-old boy noticed a small blue figure standing about 20 yards away, next to some bushes.
The figure was said to be around three feet tall, and it had a hat or helmet that was about two feet tall. The hat looked like a bowler hat without a brim, with a rounded top. The figure’s body was a shiny dark blue-grey color, which made it hard to see the figure’s shape and details clearly. It had a large black belt that was hanging down, with a black box about 6 square inches in size attached at the front.
The figure’s face had two round eyes and a flat, triangular shape where the nose should be. It had a split blue or blueish beard, with the two parts running down each side of the chest. There seemed to be a line or edge of hair or something similar at the top of the helmet, just above the eyes. The figure’s arms were short and stayed by its sides without moving. Its legs and feet were barely visible.
When they tried to approach the figure, he vanished as if he disappeared into smoke. Interestingly, they spotted him again, standing another 20 yards away. Each time they tried to get closer, he disappeared and reappeared further away. Eventually, the boys decided to hide and watch him from behind the bushes.
The Flying Saucer Review, a publication that spoke to the children, said they started hearing voices that seemed like unintelligible chatter from somewhere near them in the bushes. The boys felt like the blue figure was communicating with others, even though he didn’t move.
This made them cautious, so they didn’t rush towards the figure anymore. They continued to watch from a distance until they saw him standing still in the same spot for the fourth and last time.
The boys ran to their classroom and told their teacher about it, who didn’t believe them, but the local media and people who believe in UFOs took it seriously.
Apparently, all the different stories about this event were gathered in a book titled The Little Blue Man On Studham Common, but we have not been able to track this down.
Possible Explanations for the Blue Man of Studham Common

Some have suggested that the story is probably a hoax, made up by the school boys to get attention. The boys involved however have never wavered from their stories.
If the story is not just a hoax perpetrated by the school boys perhaps it truly was an encounter with something extraterrestrial or paranormal. Many alien abductees report missing time or having memories that don’t make sense, like they were planted. Perhaps the “blue man” was a memory planted in all of the boys’ minds to cover up something more sinister.

The Green Whale of Bantam Lake

Before dawn on April 10, 2012, a motorist and a state trooper ten miles apart reported witnessing a colossal, neon-green object plunging from the sky into Bantam Lake, Connecticut.
Sightings of the “Green Whale”

The Republican American newspaper first reported the story on a Thursday morning. They said a driver in Litchfield saw a green, glowing object as big as a whale fall from the sky into Bantam Lake around 2 a.m. on the previous Tuesday. At the same time, a police officer about 10 miles away in Warren told the police station he saw something fall from the sky near Bantam or Morris.
Firefighters from Morris went up and down the lake in a boat to see if a plane had crashed, but they didn’t find anything. The search was stopped, and the mystery was not solved.
People living in the area found the story interesting, and some businesses tried to use the story to attract customers. But some people wanted to know what really happened.
Robert LaBonne, who used to be the president of the Bantam Lake Protective Association, wrote an email to two local politicians, State Sen. Andrew Roraback and State Rep. Craig Miner. He told them he was getting emails from people as far away as Florida asking what was being done to figure out the mystery.
Bob Leigh, called The Litchfield County Times one late Thursday afternoon. He said that he and two of his friends saw the same thing at the same place about two years ago, around the same time.
Mr. Leigh said that the whole sky turned into a strange green light and then it was gone.
Leigh and his friends looked at each other and wondered what that thing was. He said it came from the sky like a green blob.
A new report covering the story of the Green Whale of Bantam Lake
Possible Mundane Explanations for the Green Whale
It is not known for sure what exactly fell from the sky on that fateful April monring and so far there have been no searches conducted in the lake.
Brian Koberlein, a space scientist and writer, told CT Insider that meteoroids and asteroids can look green when they burn up in our atmosphere because of the iron-nickel in them. He thinks a meteor might be responsible for what was seen.
He said that it’s hard to tell where something is and how big it is in the night sky. For example, the moon looks really big when it’s low in the sky, but it’s always the same size. The same thing can happen with meteors.
They might look big, bright, and close to the ground, but they’re usually higher up and just look like they’re near the horizon. Since this event happened during a meteor shower, and green meteors are not unusual, he thinks it was probably a meteor.
