Too close to a 4 foot ET - was in kid's bedroom. TV picture went to snow.

I lived on ((Deleted)) Ave. in Norwich, Connecticut in 1968. I shared a 3rd floor apartment with ((Name deleted)), his wife ((Name deleted)), and their son ((Deleted)). On a hot summer Friday evening in July, we were sitting watching Johnny Carson having put ((Deleted)) to bed at 10 pm. It was very hot so we had all the windows open. The bedroom window had no screen and led to a fire escape. The TV started to go to a snow. We heard ((Deleted)) crying around 11:45 and ((Deleted)) went white. I saw a glimpse of someone in the room and jumped up to see who it was. ((Deleted)) and I Got to the bedroom door in time to see someone go out the window. When we got to the window, the thing had flown away and was about 150-200 feet up and several hundred feet south of us. It was going toward an object in the sky that was ruby red in color. In seconds the thing was a silver dot and it merged with the object along with 3 or 4 other dots. The object then rose to 1000 ft. and went southwest at high speed. The thing was about 4 feet tall with large eyes and fang-like teeth. The arms were disproportioinately long, like a chimpanzee's arms. He had a silvery colored suit and his feet didn't appear to touch the ground. He rather floated across the room and out the open window. I am not exactly sure about the date but I am definite about the time. The details of the encounter are still rather vivid in my mind as the experience we shared was very traumatic. ((Deleted)) was from Longview, TX and ((Deleted)) was from Kilgore, TX. I haven't seen either of them (or ((Deleted))) since 1970 when he was discharged from the Navy and moved back to Texas.
