Betty Hill’s star map is believable because these are not just any 16 suns. They are all YELLOW, except for Tau Eridani 1 and Gliese 86.1 which are slightly above and below the parameter of yellow suns. The conclusions of investigating astronomers indicate that these were Zeta Reticulans seeking out yellow stars. They were traveling to places similar to their home world.
The map is very convincing when one considers that the 16 yellow stars are not randomly scattered all over this imaginary sphere. They are concentrated in one particular area of space that includes our solar system. Professor Mitchell and Marjorie Fish have pointed out that "the stars in the map are almost in a plane; that is, they fill a wheel-shaped volume of space that makes star hopping from one to another easy and is the logical way to go..." Therefore, the Zeta’s exploration and trade route theory is possible. They deliberately bypassed many non-yellow suns (cepheid variables, close binaries and multiples, giants and dwarfs) until they reached the very next yellow sun.
