She drew it and later it was identified as the Zeta Reticuli star system.
Was the abduction of Betty and Barney Hill a mere case of hypnotic suggestion by the psychologists conducting the hypnosis?
Most critics claim it is. Mostly stories have an origin. There must be a fundament for hypnotic suggestions. Doesn’t the first

Maybe the answer isn’t that simple.
