On November 5, 1975, Arizona native and logger Travis Walton was working with six of his fellow loggers. While driving in their truck, the group came across a disc-shaped object hovering just above the ground. Walton jumped from the truck and approached the disc. The other loggers were spooked and left Walton. A solid beam of bright white light shot from the object, knocking Walton unconscious.
Walton regained consciousness in a hospitalesque room surrounded by three Greys. The encounter involved a Grey leading him throughout the halls of the craft, before Walton blacks out. When he woke up, he was back on the highway. Five days had gone by since Walton was last with his coworkers.
Travis Walton reappeared after a five-day search. Walton wrote about his abduction experience in his 1978 book The Walton Experience. The book was adapted into the film Fire in the Sky (1993), written by Tracy Tormé.
