Awoke after being asleep for an hour or so to a light coming from another part of the house. I lay very still while witnessing the light move closer and what appeared in the doorway was a very bright, iluminated sphere. I can only characterize movement as being suspended, yet bobbing about in an almost fluid motion. It came close, then raced upward and directly shot out of the window. My husband witnessed this thing, but refuses to ever dicuss it. Even denies it took place.

Went to bed after a normal workday and fell asleep. An hour or so later I awoke and noticed a light coming from another room. I instantly was aware that it could not be a light inadvertantly left on as it had a distictive illuminating glow about it. For reasons unknown to myself, i instinctively had the impression that "it was coming". I lay completely still as this light became brighter as it moved closer to the bedroom door. In the doorway appeared an extremely bright illuminated spere. This thing had the color of something so bright that it was almost bluish. It remained bobbing in the doorway a short while, then moved directly over me, moved from over my head to my feet staying up near the ceiling as it did so. It then moved directly over my abdomin and descended slowly until it was inches, I mean inches, from my stomach. It then bobbed there for thirty or forty seconds, then slowly rose to about two or three feet above me. I then realized my husband was sound asleep during all of this and tried to awaken him. I was being subtle as I was afraid that too much motion would disturb this bobbing orb above me. He finally awoke and I thought he was going to have a seizure. At the point of his gasping, this thing rose quickly raced out of the window. At this point we both jumped to the window to see where this thing went, but it was nowhere to be seen. My husband was completely shaken by this event and over time has decided it didn't happen. I, myself, have been timid about mentioning it to anyone because i do not wish to be percieved as some kind person needing psychiatric attention. I do so now because I have always been perplexed by this, but have never heard of anyone experiencing something like this. I hope that at least by reporting it now, someone with similar experiences can be assured that they are not delusional. I do not know if this was a UFO or not, but people mentioning seeing illuminated spheres have prompted me to report this.I have seen th! em on and off for years at a distance, I only want to add that they do not seem mechanical at all, more like something alive, with presence. Please feel free to toss this out if it does not fit with your forum here, as I am not sure what forum in which it does belong.
