The Alien Abduction of Betty Andreasson Luca


When the majority of society thinks about the alien abduction phenomenon it only makes them turn their backs in confusion and disbelief. However, we must confront this issue, as it is an integral part of the UFO mystery. Although the alien abduction phenomenon itself may seem unlikely, some abductions fall into the truly bizarre category. One such case is the abduction of Betty Andreasson Luca that occurred in the town of South Ashburnham, Massachusetts (USA). This riveting case has become a mainstay of UFO literature.
The red light:
On the evening of January 25, 1967, at about 6:30 pm (18:30 hrs.), Betty Andreasson was in her kitchen while her seven children, mother and father were in the living room. Suddenly the house lights began to blink for a moment and a pulsating reddish-orange beam of light entered the house through the kitchen window. Betty's kids were frightened after the lights blinked and she ran from the kitchen to calm them.

Beings walk through the door:
Her father startled by the red beam of light rushed to look out the kitchen window.  To his utter shock, he saw five strange creatures heading toward their house in a hopping motion. Before he could regain his composure, he was stunned to see the beings enter the house right through the wooden door in the kitchen. Immediately, the entire family was put into a type of trance.

The leader:

One of the creatures went to attend Betty’s father, while another began to have telepathic conversations with Betty. She and her father thought that the creature with whom she had the telepathic conversation was the leader. He was about five-feet (1.5 meters) tall while the other four were approximately a foot (30 centimeters) shorter.
Description of the beings:
All had large pear-shaped heads, very large catlike wraparound eyes, and diminutive ears and noses. Their mouths were immobile slits that reminded Betty of scar lines and only communicated with their minds. Each wore a tight-fitted blue coverall uniform adorned with a Sam Browne-type belt. An insignia of a bird was affixed to their sleeves. Their hands had three digits. (Later, on the craft, they were gloved.) They wore boot-like attire on their feet.

Suspended animation:
They did not actually walk, but floated as they moved along. Betty later would recall that she was not frightened by their presence, but instead, felt calm. Meanwhile, Betty's mother and children were still in a state of suspended animation. When Betty seemed worried about them, the aliens temporarily released her 11-year-old daughter, Becky, from the trance to assure her that no harm was being done to her family.

Betty escorted outside:

Then the aliens took Betty outside to a waiting craft, which rested on a hill in the backyard of her house. Betty estimated the craft to be about twenty feet (6 meters) in diameter and looked like two saucers, one inverted upon the other, with a small superstructure on top. 

The craft took off and apparently merged with the mother-ship where Betty was subjected to a physical examination with the effects of strange equipment. Then she was taken to an alien place where she was subjected to a bizarre test that caused her pain at first, but resulted in an ecstatic religious-like experience.
Gone for four hours:
She estimated that she was gone for four hours before being brought home by two of the aliens. Upon returning home, she ran to see the rest of her family. They were yet in some kind of suspended state. All along, one of the beings had stayed in her house, evidently to watch over the rest of the family members.  Finally, after releasing the family from the trancelike state, the aliens left.
Partial Memory:
Before they left, Betty had been hypnotized and told not to reveal any details of her experience until a designated time to be determined later. However, some of the details of her abduction were temporarily lost to her, some things she was able to recall. She remembered the power outage, the red beam of light coming into the house, and the aliens coming in.

A wide range of investigators gather:

Some eight years later, in 1975, Betty responded to a local newspaper story about UFO researcher Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who was soliciting personal UFO experience information from the public. The letter she sent to Hynek was rejected, however, being too bizarre to be believed. Two more years would transpire before her story would be investigated. The group of investigators included an electronics engineer, an aerospace engineer, and telecommunications specialist, a solar physicist, and a UFO investigator. They employed the services of a professional hypnotist and a medical doctor trained in psychiatry.

During a twelve-month investigation, they conducted an extensive character-reference check, two lie-detector tests, a psychiatric interview, and fourteen lengthy hypnotic regression sessions. Under hypnosis, Betty and her daughter relived a consistent, detailed UFO experience with genuine physiological reactions. Their three-volume, 528-page report led to the conclusion that the witnesses were reliable and sane individuals who sincerely believed the experience had really occurred. And Betty, along with her daughter, agreed in all basic details of the case.


Betty's case of alien abduction is very strange, yet a very good case to study because it shows that no matter how bizarre or weird the majority of society finds the alien abduction phenomenon, there are cases that can be proven factual based on the inexhaustible and meticulous investigation conducted such as in the Betty Andreasson Luca case. This incident can be determined to be true in the court of law based on the multiple witnesses and the ample investigators from different fields that got involved in the case. 


People think that just because this story is out of the norm regarding UFO abduction cases that it did not occur. People need to have an open mind when it comes to strange stories like this. I truly believe that this situation did happened. Why would this family conjure up a story like this and ruin their reputation and their families reputation. It just dose not add up. They could have come up with a more believable story than this one. Please post more of these type of stories. Thanks....

Although there have been many unexplained sightings in the town of Lajas, the situation there has been hyped by the amount of lies and exaggeration by a group of so-called, "ufologists" who ignore other areas of Puerto Rico to promote tourism in Lajas. That was evident when my wife and my daughter confronted a terrifying experience in the town of Aguada with extraterrestrials and that group of charlatans refused our plea for help. Of course, if it happened in Lajas they would have jumped on the opportunity for fame and tourism for that town. Those hoaxes and lies were approved and sanctioned by the then mayor of that town who named route 303 "The extraterrestrial route". The idea of building an "UFOport" (ovnipuerto), “la llorona sightings" and the biggest hoax of them all, "that a UFO crashed there" all this could only be found in a science fiction novel.

About me

Ufologist, criminal investigator, musician, artist and writer.

I worked 20 years for the New York City Department of Correction. First as a Correction Officer for 4 years, Captain for 12 years, and as a Deputy Warden for 4 years. As a law enforcement officer and supervisor, I have conducted countless of criminal investigations, some for unimaginable allegations.

On June of 2005, after my retirement, I moved to Puerto Rico with my family where my wife and my daughter faced extraordinary experiences with extraterrestrials. These alien encounters, subsequent abductions of my wife and the lack of help from so-called, "ufologists" here on the island, prompted me to become involved in the field of ufology and in the need to help others who have had similar experiences.
