In August of 1976, four young art students in their early twenties left for a canoe and camping trip in Maine's Allagash Wilderness. On one night during the trip, they encountered a huge oval, glowing object rising above the trees nearby, and were soon engulfed in a beam of light from the craft.
As discovered in hypnosis sessions years later, it was at this point that all four were abducted into the craft and subjected to physical examinations.
