A white light outside my south window was so bright it turned my blue curtains white.

Hello Peter, I don't know if this story is of interest to you because it happened in Olympia WA Jan. 18th 1999 at 12:30 am.A bright light outside my south window was so bright that it turned my blue curtains white. Within 8 second a very strange hissy kind of hum enveloped the house from the south. It sort of sounded like a huge electrical transformer station approaching very close. Three other adults in different rooms of the house saw the light and heard the sound. It penetrated like a wave passing inside the house. The whole thing lasted about 15 seconds. It was late and I was in bed at the time. I do wish I had looked out of a north window to see what the heck it was. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but my house sits on the 5 mile FAA marker for the Tumwater airport. Did you get any other reports around that night. It definitely was strange and I had a very interesting dream that night. I have had many experiences with UFO's, but this was the most recent possibility. Thanks for the response. ((name deleted))
