Travis Walton claims that in 1975, while working as a logger in Arizona, he and several co-workers came across a UFO in the forest, which shot a beam of light at Travis.
Frightened, his friends fled the scene, when they returned Walton was gone.
Walton recalled waking up on the side of the road, he thought only a few hours had past, but he had actually been missing for 5 days. He later recalled being on the craft and the strange creatures that were there with him. His story was made into a movie called “Fire in the Sky.”
Walton is here this weekend for a UFO Conference hosted by Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). Meet him and other UFO experts Saturday and Sunday.
