On October the 10, 1973 the strange events that led to the Pascagoula alien abduction began. A large group of witnesses including two policemen spotted a silver UFO floating over a housing estate in St. Tammany Parish, New Orleans, Louisiana.
What is thought to be the same UFO returned to play it’s part in the Pascagoula alien abduction case about twenty four hours later…..
Calvin Parker And Charles Hickson
Calvin Parker And Charles Hickson were two men from a town in Mississippi named Gautier. They were both out on the Pascagoula river taking part in some much needed night fishing.
It was about 9:00 pm and it had just turned dark when they both became aware of a strange buzzing noise behind them. They turned around and came face to face with a strange glowing egg shaped vessel shining out a blue colored light!
The egg shaped vessel was not on land – it floated about 30 feet from the shore where they stood. All of a sudden a door mechanism opened on the side of the craft and three humanoid figures came out.
The three strange beings then turned towards the two fishermen and started in their direction. They did not wade through the water – they floated about a foot above it!
The two men would later describe the creatures as being about five foot tall with bullet shaped heads that had no necks below them. Their facial features were replaced by slits – nose, mouth and ears! They had no eyes and strange clawed hands with carrot-like protrusions.
The Pascagoula Alien Abduction
Hickson was the first of the two men to be reached by two of the creatures – he was stood frozen in fear and had no chance of running. The third being reached Parker and he instantly fainted through pure terror.
Hickson was abducted by the two creatures taking him under the arms and floating him into the strange craft. Once inside he continued to float as a eye like object scanned his whole body.
Once they had fully examined Hickson they left the room to start on Parker. Hickson estimated he was probably left floating there for about 20 minutes.
All of a sudden the creatures re-entered the room and floated him back out of the same door to the river bank where he found Parker in a state of near breakdown.
He turned around to see the craft door shut and then rise up off the river and disappear into thin air!
The Pascagoula alien abduction was a traumatic experience for both men. Straight after the craft had left the pair tried to regain their composure but had no idea what to do. They knew nobody would believe their story but they also felt obligated to tell some sort of authority what had happened!
They decided to phone the Kessler Air Force Base in Biloxi but their report was just transferred straight to the local sheriff’s office.
This did not exactly fill the two men with that much confidence – they thought the law would think they were off their heads! They came to the conclusion that the media would be their best bet and drove straight to their local newspaper.
The offices were closed and the two men then realized that they would have to trust the law instead – they arrived at the sheriff’s office to expected ridicule.
The sheriff left the two men in a special room that was wired up with mics to find out the truth behind this Pascagoula alien abduction – hopefully one of the men would slip up and admit the whole thing was a hoax……neither did.
The Story Breaks!
It was not long before the story of the Pascagoula alien abduction broke to the media. The local press released a detailed story and before to long the whole of the USA was aware of the incident.
The Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO), sent University of California professor James Harder to investigate the story further. He was also joined by Dr. J. Allen Hynek who was sent in by the US Air Force.
Both Hynek and Harder came to the conclusion that these were two respectable and honest men – they were telling the truth!
The Pascagoula alien abduction is one of the most famous American UFO incidents on record. The abduction was only experienced by Parker and Hickson but later it was revealed that there were many more strange sightings that night.
Both Calvin Parker and Charles Hickson have stuck to their story – they believe firmly in what happened to them……..
