Travis Walton's 20/20 Interview (circa 1979)

Travis Walton has become visible again.

A 20/20 interview with him, in the late 1970s or early 1980s, that we've uploaded to YouTube, shows him to be "authentic" -- his description of how he reacted when he awoke in the craft that allegedly abducted him and saw three beings rings true.

However, we are always curious as to how persons not skilled in estimating sizes of anything always manage to provide dimensions of the UFOs they see with a certitude that rivals technicians with skills at determining sizes of things seen; Walton does this early in the interview.

Dr. Michael Persinger, a cognitive neuroscience researcher, thinks Walton's experience was induced by electromagnetic anomalies along the fault lines in the area where Mr. Walton says he was abducted.

A brief segment includes a sighting in New Zealand, that was adduced to have occurred because of fault line activity.

I think Bruce Maccabee made much of the New Zealand sighting, without resorting to the fault line theory.

The fault line hypothesis is a stretch, of course.
