Carl Higdon: the Man who Travelled 163,000 Light Years with Alien Ausso One


On October 25, 1974, a lone man went out to hunt for deer inside the Medicine Bow National Forest. However, instead of shooting a deer, he accidentally shoots the cloaked spaceship parked directly in front of him.

He allegedly shot the intruder from space. After he captured it, he helped bring it back to his home planet.


The traveler from space had two antennae, no collar bones, no ears, small eyes, and three large teeth. The extraterrestrial was oddly dressed as if trying to appear humanoid using unique clothing from his home planet.

This ET introduced himself as “Ausso One” after making contact with the hunter. The hunter was then asked if he wanted a space tour, but he declined. He was then asked if he was hungry as if understanding that Carl Higdon was hunting deer for food. Carl nodded, and he was handed four pills which he ingested. After a while, he slowly fell unconscious.


Regardless of the hunter’s wishes, he was taken on a trip to the stars. The two allegedly left Earth and traveled 163,000 light years to the alien’s home planet and back. After a few ‘days’ of traveling through the void of space, he felt his memory slowly escaping him.

The few things he remembers from the trip are the five unconscious elks the alien took with him. There were also two other beings aboard the ship. He was obviously not supposed to be there with them and was bound to his chair the whole trip.

When he returned to Earth, he made his way to his truck and announced his discovery to everyone who would listen. Unfortunately, he had trouble explaining his experience and still seemed intoxicated by the pills.

He also showed people the flattened bullet he hid in his pocket. This single piece of evidence suggests that he did not make this story up.

Since then, people have tried to go to the area and look for Alien Ausso One, but to no avail. No one else had the chance to meet the alien again. Regardless, this is one of the earliest and most detailed accounts of aliens interacting with humans in modern times.s
