The Allagash Abduction
The Allagash Waterway is a series of lakes and canals in the breathtaking mountains of Maine. This lovely area would be the site of one of the most
discussed and best documented alien abduction cases on record. A dramatized version was featured on the "Unsolved Mysteries" television show.
The Allagash incident would involve multiple witnesses, four to be exact, twin brothers Jack and Jim Weiner, along with their friends Chuck Rak and
Charlie Foltz. The four men had met while studying at the Massachusetts College of Art, and they were all beginning their respective careers.
The four artists would turn into sportsmen for what they thought would be an enjoyable, relaxing trip. Their trip to Allagash would be memorable, but
not for the reasons they had hoped for.
It would be in August 1976, that the four men began their vacation, and part way through their canoeing, they reached Eagle Lake, padding to it's
mouth to do some fishing. Not having any luck, and running low on food, they decided to try some night fishing. Before leaving the bank, they built an
extremely large campfire to be a landmark light from the water.
After a time on the lake, the four suddenly saw a light... a light that seemed much brighter than a star. The glowing orb was hovering over the trees
a couple of hundred yards away. The object changed colors as it moved back and forth; red, then green, then a whitish yellow.
The massive object was estimated to be about 80 feet in diameter. The object slowly moved across the tops of the trees along the bank, and as it came
closer to the four fishermen, Charlie Foltz signaled an SOS with his flashlight. Immediately, the object silently moved toward the canoe.
A guarded curiosity now turned into a frantic dash for the bank. As they paddled as fast as they could, a hollow light came from the object,
engulfing the men and their canoe. The next thing the men knew, they were standing on the bank again. Charlie pointed his flashlight toward the object
again, but this time it rose up and out of their view, as it showed it's beam once more before disappearing into the Allagash sky.
Wondering what had transpired, the men were shocked to see their once glowing fire to be nothing but smoldering ashes. This should have taken several
hours, and the four friends wondered, "What happened to the last couple of hours?"
Very little was said as the four men packed up their gear and went back to the everyday grinds of their respective careers. In time the night of the
UFO would begin to have a profound effect on their lives.
Jack Weiner was the first to start having nightmares. In these dreams, he saw beings with long necks, and large heads. He saw the beings examining his
arm, while Jim, Chuck, and Charlie sat on a nearby bench, not able to intervene.
The beings had large metallic glowing eyes with no lids, and their hands were insect-like, with four fingers. The other three men were experiencing
very similar dreams, with short, mental clips of that awful night on the lake. In 1988, out of curiosity, Jim Weiner attended a UFO conference hosted
by Raymond Fowler.
Weiner met Fowler afterwards, and related his strange encounter. The investigator was excited about Jim's story, especially the fact that it was a
multiple witness occurrence. Fowler suggested to Jim that he and the others undergo regressive hypnosis. After the sessions, it was revealed that all
four of the men had been abducted, and subjected to humiliating physical examinations, including the taking of skin and fluid samples.
The men's description of the aliens was consistent, and being artists, they were able to make detailed sketches of the entities, the craft, and the
examining instruments. Chuck Rak added that the aliens' test area was similar to a vet's office, with a silvery table. He also related a strange
fact: he had much difficulty in focusing on the aliens. When he tried, he could not put an exact image to them.
He compared it to trying to tune in a fuzzy radio station.
After the psychiatric examinations, all four of the men were deemed to be mentally stable, and they all passed lie-detector tests. All of the
information gleaned from the detailed hypnotic sessions, and investigative reports provide strong evidence that something "not of this world" was
encountered by these four men on the Allagash Waterway in 1976. This case is still considered unexplainable by conventional scientific means.

When you chat with Anthony Constantino, there's always one inevitable question: "Do you believe them?" "Them" is a group of four friends who went
camping on the Allagash Waterway in northern Maine in the summer of 1976.
Maybe you saw them recently on the Joan Rivers Show, where they detailed an ordeal in which they claimed they had a close encounter with a UFO.
They are receiving national attention with the release this summer of "The Allagash Abductions" written by Raymond Fowler of Wenham who is a
director of investigations for the Mutual UFO Network.
Those who are familiar with this case know that the full story, with all its mysterious and harrowing details, wasn't revealed until Anthony
Constantino of Beverly placed the four men under hypnosis, and revealed events that had been pushed into their unconscious.
"It was the most intense experience I've had as a hypnotist," says Constantino.
The conscious part of the story begins on Thursday, August 26, 1976, when the four men - Chuck Rak, Charlie Foltz, and identical twins Jim and Jack
Weiner, set up camp on Eagle Lake in Maine, and decided to go fishing in the evening. They built a huge bonfire to act as a beacon for their return to
Soon after they were out in their canoe, they saw "a large bright sphere of colored light hovering motionless and soundless about 200 to 300 feet
above the southeastern rim of the cove," according to Rak.
Foltz blinked a flashlight at the object. Maybe that was a bad idea. The UFO began to approach the canoe, while a cone-shaped beam of light from the
object struck the water and began following the canoe. More inspired than any Olympic athletes, the four campers began paddling for shore.
But the beam engulfed them, and the next thing they remembered, they were in the canoe, near the shore of the lake, watching the UFO ascend and
