Brothers Jim and Jack Weiner, and their art school classmates Chuck Rack and Charlie Foltz, were abducted during a fishing trip at the Allagash Waterway in Maine. The men didn’t have any lucky fishing in the daytime, so they decided to take a canoe out into the water for some late night fishing. While floating through the water in complete darkness, the group noticed a glowing light reflecting from the top of the trees. The light began to change colors before hovering over their canoe and engulfing the entire group.
Before they knew it, they were back at the campground sitting in front of a burned out fire. Slowly, the events of that night came back to each man. They recounted strange beings examining them aboard a spaceship. After going through hypnotic therapy, each man retold the same story while under hypnosis. Since they were all artists, they were able to draw similar artistic renderings depicting their haunting experience.
