Before Marjorie Fish's painstaking astronomical analysis of the 'star map' revealed by 1961 abductee Betty Hill under hypnosis, Zeta Reticuli was an obscure and generally unknown double-star system in the Southern Hemisphere. "The Zeti Reticuli Incident" was the most widely-read and controversial article ever published in the prestigious ASTRONOMY magazine (December '74). Critics included Carl Sagan; among supporters was J. Allen Hynek.

The article, updates, and arguments both pro-and-con are archived at (also accessible from item #2 at )Because of the graphics and star maps, it is a 1.06-MB MS-Word document, so allow extra time if you're downloading/opening using a 56K modem.

Actually, the person that brought my attention to this classic piece was famed Testors model designer John Andrews who -- in addition to publicly displaying a model of the model of the stealth fighter against the military's wishes -- created the "Sport Model" UFO kit based on lengthy interviews with Bob Lazar. Andrews is reportedly the man who introduced a naive John Lear to the subject of UFOs. And he had many conversations with Skunk Works' Ben Rich who admitted to both man-made and ET UFOs. Unfortunately Mr. Andrews passed away due to cancer. He would be a MOST interesting person to research & investigate!
