On August 11, 1976, four men were camping in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in Maine when they reported seeing a UFO. The men were Chuck Rak, Charlie Foltz, and twin brothers Jack and Jim Weiner.
The four had been canoeing on Big Eagle Lake when they saw a bright light in the sky. The light was moving erratically and seemed to be following them. The men stopped paddling and watched the light. They said that it was about the size of a football field and was a bluish-white color. It was also silent. After a few minutes, the light landed on a nearby island. The men said that they saw a beam of light shine down.
The men's story was widely reported in the media and became known as the "Allagash Abductions." Despite the lack of clear evidence, some people believe that the men were telling the truth about their experience. Others believe that they were mistaken or that they made up the story.
In this episode, we will explore the Allagash Abductions in detail including the key facts of the sighting, and the different theories about what happened. We will also hear from the men themselves, who share their own personal accounts of the experience. What did they see that day? You decide!
