Awakened by flood of light through bedroom window.

This may seem silly, especially since my usually acute memory has failed me re. date and time. I was sleeping with both my children who had come into my bed. My husband had fallen asleep in our basement rec room. There are two windows on either side of my bed at the head. There is another window on the oppisite wall. The light entered only through one window, one that flanks the headboard. This would be Northeasterly. I was sleeping and awoke by a flood of light on one side of the bedroom that shone onto my daughter, the bedside table and the whole side of the room. I felt that it shone directly in my face, which was what awoke me. I remember wondering if a helicopter was searching for someone, but I couldn't hear anything that sounded like a helicopter. I may have heard a buzzing sound but I am not even certain of this as I was half asleep and confused by the intensity of the light. I looked at the clock and remember thinking that it was still early and I couldn't have been sleeping all that long. I believe it was a little before midnight. I kept thinking that this must be a huge spotlight and couldn't figure where it came from. I still thought that it was police or something. What didn't make sense then or now, was that the light was shining down into my second story room, not up. It definitely was from above and I continued to listen for helicopter sounds. Then suddenly it was gone. I went back to sleep and figured my neighbors would tell me if something had happened. I mentioned it to a few people including my husband and kids but no one heard or saw anything. I know I wasn't dreaming but don't know anything else for sure.
