Shape: Sphere
Duration:2-3 mins.
Observed dull silver metallic sphere hovering outside of bedroom window as a child. Had direct communication with sphere.

In October 1961, I awoke from a sound sleep with a feeling the something was in my room. I was 7 years old. My older brother (11 yrs) was already awake and he pointed towards a light behind the metal venetian blinds of our first floor bedroom window.

I felt compelled to look behind the blind slats. When I did I was face-to-face with a dull silver metalic sphere approximately 18-24 inches in diameter. The sphere was hovering silently and motionless right next to the window glass (single-pane glass with a metal frame).

The sphere had a recessed rectangular panel (approx 10 inches across by 3-4 inches high). There were red dots (unkonwn numer and pattern) and there was a very bright white light at the right and left sides of the panel. (Two lights total). The lights were the color and intensity of examiination lights in a dentist's office or in an operating room. (At the time I had never seen either type of medical lights before).

The sphere hovered motionless and I was in direct communication with the sphere. It was a very strange sense of consciousness that I never experienced before the event. I was paralyzed and was in a one-way communication with the sphere. It was telling me things in my head without audible words. I was unable to understand specifically what was being said, but it was very important that I listen to the messages. I believe there were at least four simulataneous "voices" talking at the same time in Engilish as I stared into the sphere. It was a multi-voice message.

My brother was not involved in this contact. The sphere slowly began to rotate silently away from me to my right. As it rotated, the lights went off. The sphere's motion was very smooth and silent. It rose more rapidly and disappeared into the sky.

My brother did not look out the window as far as I know. I still look out the window evey night before I go to bed and whenever I wake up during the night to check for something.

I am now 44 years old.

Has anyone else seen a sphere such as this?
