Travis Walton’s alien abduction story to be featured on SyFy’s ‘Paranormal Witness’

Arizona logger Travis Walton‘s story of his alleged 1975 alien abduction was turned into a Hollywood feature film in 1993 titled Fire in the Sky. Now the SyFy channel is presenting this fascinating story on an episode of the show Paranormal Witness.

Although Travis Walton and fellow loggers who witnessed the 1975 event–John Goulette and Steve Pierce–were reunited at the 2012 International UFO Congress, the New York Daily News reports that this episode of Paranormal Witness “will be the first time that all the key people involved in the case are revealing what they saw and experienced.”

The 90-minute episode featuring Walton’s story will reportedly include key players from the case like the local sheriff who investigated Walton’s disappearance, a polygraph analyst who tested Walton and his fellow loggers, and a doctor who examined Walton when he returned, after having been missing for five days.

This episode airs tonight, Wednesday, October 3 at 10/9c on SyFy.

  1. The navigation system that he describes in 3D sounds fascinating! Also, the fact that he was taken to 2 different ships gets overlooked I think, You never hear about the silent, white males on the 2nd ship as well. Everyone concentrates on the polygraph, IT HAPPENED! Move on people! Would love to Mr Walton at length!

  2. I found it interesting When Travis Walton said he pushed the lever and it made all these stars move together. It really gets you thinking.

  3. I watched this the other day. I remember hearing about this story years ago, but I don’t recall what happened after the little reptillian/grey aliens. I find the human-type beings a fascinating addition.

    The emotion of all the men interviewed was astonishing. So many years later and looking back is still very intense.
