Charles Hickson, the Mississippi man who claimed he was abducted and probed by aliens while he was fishing with a friend in 1973 and never backed off the story despite the ridicule he endured, has died.

He and Parker stated that they were abducted by robots who brought them aboard a spacecraft.  They reported this incident to the police who left them alone in a room and tape recorded them secretly, thinking they'd give themselves away in a hoaxed story.  They did not, and in fact were very badly shaken and terrified by what had happened to them.


Other witnesses also say this UFO at the time and it was tracked on radar as well.  Even more, it deliberately interfered with the radar system.

The 1973 UFO wave was one of the largest in US history, and was called the Year of the Humanoids because of the strange "occupants" that were often being reported, types of ETs that have not been seen since as far as I know.

Wow, McGuff, you have any info on the occupant types during the "Year of the Humanoids"? This is the first time I've ever heard of robots...very interesting!

Wow… you all may think that this was boring, but although I had never heard of this man, I certainly have been to Pascagoula, Mississippi and had my own strange encounter.  

In 1993 while taking a smoke break in the Ingall’s ship yard where my ship was being built (I was serving in the Navy) I was watching large, dark thunderclouds roll in from the Gulf.  That in itself was nothing unusual, but what made me crap my pants (well… almost) was when an orange colored ring of lightning lit up the sky from the front of those clouds and stayed there for about ten seconds just glowing.  Though I could still clearly see the clouds on the outside of the gigantic, orange ring,  there was only blackness from within, dotted with glowing bluish – greenish orbs.  Then it was all gone.  

I can’t say that I actually saw anything paranormal or extraterrestrial, but that image has been seared into my mind for nearly twenty years.  Could it have been some kind of wormhole?  Or was it simply a weather anomaly?  I don’t know, but I can tell you first hand that strange things happen in Pascagoula, Mississippi.

He could or could not have been a fake we will never know. As for that part of Miss I have been there but only for a short time. I know people have told me odd things there, not aliens but just odd lights in general. I have had my own share of 'odd' things, but I don't find them aliens, just military/privately owned technology, or at least that's how I see it.

I'm old enough to remember this story.  Saw some of the interviews.  At the time, I found them convincing.  There were some family corollaries about the incident as well, can't remember exactly but it added to the "something really, really weird happened to these guys"  feeling.  This incident was included in most of the books on UFO's circulating at the time so there should be quite a bit out there on it if anyone cares.

There were lots of "occupant" reports like these in 1973, like this one from Georgia.  It was also reported to the police, who found ground traces from where the craft landed.

"Suddenly, two beings appeared. “Where they came from I don’t know. I couldn’t see a flap, a drop door, or anything. When I finally got my vision clear I could see a clearance underneath, so it was not belly-landed; it had some kind of landing gear. And they came out, and they had on the most beautiful outfits I’ve ever seen-silver, blousy, come down to where your wrists are, then they had what appeared to be white gloves. Very tight around the neck, like something a priest would wear. Down to the feet, like a jumpsuit. It looked like if you pulled a gun and shot it, it would glance off, yet it moved. They could move, yet it looked like it was heavy, because of the way they walked, very slow. I estimated them to be four to five feet tall."

http://uforesearchne...lay&thread=1204



There were many other cases from that state at the same time, reporting UFO occupants:


"On the following day at 3:30 a motorist was driving on I-75 near Ashburn when her car suddenly and completely shut down. Stopped on the roadside, a “strange feeling” led her to look right, where she saw “a four-foot-tall metal man who appeared to be wearing a metallic pewter like outfit capped with a bubble or dome made of the same material-there were two openings for the eyes. The slits were rectangular.” The creature circled her car and disappeared six minutes later. A state trooper told the woman that several drivers had told him the same story, and three hours later her engine remained too hot to touch.

Within five hours a woman in Morgan County was followed by two fluorescent beams that changed color and shape. Panicked, she pulled into a driveway and burst into a house, whose startled residents also saw the object. By morning the woman’s face was burned, a condition that lasted a week.

The next incident involved a University of Georgia student with the unlikely name of Mars Walker. Early on October 20 he was studying in his Athens apartment when “a high-pitched, siren like sound” attracted his attention, followed by a “glow like a watch-dial” outside. He opened the door to find a round aerial object, with a diameter varying from ten to seventeen feet, slowly descending 50 yards away. The sound increased and a being began to coalesce inside the object, resulting in “a humanlike being standing erect” that resembled “a sea green opaque” hologram. The head was surrounded by tentacles, and the hands had fewer than five fingers. “The odd thing to me is how little attention it paid me, no interest in communicating with me or threatening me or any other activity, besides observing.” The creature reentered the UFO and it departed a half hour after arriving.

Near Loxley Clarence Patterson and his pickup were sucked into a giant cigar-shaped UFO. Robot-like creatures who could read his mind removed him from the truck and subjected him to a physical examination. Patterson passed out, and awoke to find himself speeding on a road at ninety mph."

Cocoyoc, Mexico, November 3, 1973. A Mexican banker and his family saw a strange object approaching rapidly from the East in a clear afternoon sky. His wife said that the object was a round shape, and she drew her husband's attention to the object.

This was also the year of the famous Skylab UFO sighting.

"About a week or 10 days before recovery and we were still waiting for information to be supplied to us about the identification. Jack first notices this rather large red star out the wardroom window. Upon close examination, it was much brighter than Jupiter or any of the other planets. It had a reddish hue to it, even though it was well above the horizon. The light from the Sun was not passing close to the Earth’s limb at the time. We observed it for about 10 minutes prior to sunset. It was slowly rotating because it had a variation in brightness with a 10-seconds period. As I was saying, we observed it for about 10 minutes, until we went into darkness, and it also followed us into darkness about 5-seconds later. From the 5 to 10 second delay in it’s disappearance we surmised that it was not more than 30 to 50 nautical miles [35 to 58 statute miles or 56 to 93 km] from our location. From its original position in the wardroom window, it did not move more than 10 or 20 degrees over the 10 minutes or so that we watched it. Its orbit was very close to that of our own. We never saw it on any earlier or succeeding orbits and we’d be quite interested in having its identification established.”
