MA-22 - A Star to Steer By


A spatial obsession -- that's the theme of this compilation of music about outer space.  The cover image is from Betty Hill's infamous Star Map, supposedly recalled when hypno-regressed to find "the truth" of hers and Barney's 1961 New Hampshire encounter.

A teacher named Marjorie Fish decided that the (originally unlabeled) dots on Betty's map matched Zeta Reticuli and other stars.  But here is an opposing viewpoint that suggests that the dots could just as easily apply to out own Solar System.

Here are the songs in this batch of "Music from the Great Beyond":
