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.

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 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.

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.

Goblins in Kentucky? The Kelly-Hopkinsville Encounter

The Kelly–Hopkinsville encounter was a close encounter with extraterrestrial beings in 1955 near the communities of Kelly and Hopkinsville in Kentucky. UFOlogists regard it as one of the most significant and well-documented cases in the history of UFO incidents.

The Kelly-Hopkinsville Goblins

On August 21, 1955, while visiting his friend Elmer “Lucky” Sutton at a farmhouse in the small town of Kelly, Billy Ray Taylor from Pennsylvania went outside to get water from the well. Suddenly, he noticed something flying across the sky that was very bright and had colorful exhaust. Filled with panic, he quickly ran back inside and informed everyone, including his wife and the Sutton family, that he had just seen a UFO.

Taylor also mentioned that he didn’t hear any loud noise like an explosion, but there was a hissing sound when the object landed somewhere near the back of the farmhouse. However, nobody took Taylor’s claim seriously until they heard the dogs barking, indicating that someone or something was approaching the house.

The intruders had large, round heads and long arms with claws that almost reached the ground. Every aspect of their appearance appeared to shimmer and emit a glow in the darkness.

Their eyes emitted a yellowish light, and their bodies glistened as if they were composed of silver metal.

The groupgathered at the Sutton farmhouse were determined not to surrender without a struggle. Sutton and Taylor quickly armed themselves with guns. When one of the creatures approached the window and pressed its face against it, they immediately began shooting at it.

Later that evening, a group of five adults and seven children rushed to the Hopkinsville police station in a state of fear and desperation. One of them managed to utter, “We require assistance. We’ve been battling them for almost four hours.”

The group claimed that they had been fending off the otherworldly invaders for nearly four hours using gunfire. Sutton and Taylor recounted shooting at around “twelve to fifteen” short, dark figures that kept appearing at the door and peering through windows.

UFOlogist Jerome Clark describes the creatures as floating through the trees and the sound of bullets hitting them resembling bullets hitting a metal bucket. He also mentions an unusual glowing patch and a mysterious green light.

Thinking they were dealing with a gunfight between locals, authorities swiftly responded to the scene. Four city police officers, five state troopers, three deputy sheriffs, and four military police officers from the nearby United States Army Fort Campbell rushed to the Sutton farmhouse in Christian County, near the town of Kelly.

Despite an extensive search, they found no trace of the alleged extraterrestrial beings, except for bullet holes in the window and door screens caused by the residents’ gunfire.

The farmhouse was occupied by Glennie Lankford, her children Lonnie, Charlton, and Mary, as well as Elmer “Lucky” Sutton, John Charley “J.C.” Sutton, their wives Vera and Alene, Alene’s brother O.P. Baker, and Billy Ray Taylor with his wife June.

Reportedly, the Taylors, “Lucky,” and Vera Sutton were transient carnival workers who happened to be visiting the farmhouse. The following day, neighbors informed the officers that the families had hastily departed after claiming that “the creatures had returned around 3:30 in the morning.”

Possible Mundane Explanations

Psychologists Rodney Schmaltz and Scott Lilienfeld use the incident as an example of pseudoscience to teach critical thinking. They suggest that alcohol may have influenced the sighting, despite claims of no drinking.

Skeptic Joe Nickell proposes that the family mistook nocturnal owls for aliens, noting their aggressive behavior and resemblance to reported creatures. Author Brian Dunning highlights the similarities between the owl’s height and the reported size of the beings.

According to French UFOlogist Renaud Leclet, the simplest explanation for the case is that the residents mistook great horned owls for the creatures.

Investigations by police, nearby Air Force officers, and civilian UFOlogists found no evidence of a hoax, although there are discrepancies regarding the involvement of Air Force investigators.

Some UFOlogists compared the creatures to gremlins, leading to their popular nickname, the “Hopkinsville Goblins.” UFOlogist Allan Hendry noted the case’s significance due to its duration and the number of witnesses involved, while Project Blue Book labeled it as a hoax without further comment.

Kentucky Goblins and the ‘Little Green Men’

The encounter with the goblins in Kelly-Hopkinsville led to the popularization of the term “little green men.” Before this sighting, beings in flying saucers were simply referred to as “little men,” while “little green men” was mainly used in science fiction stories.

After the alleged sighting, local reporters began describing the creatures as “little green men,” and the phrase quickly spread through newspapers, radio, and translations into other languages.
