This is the first time I have reproted this occurrance. I was between 10-12 (have have to go back to where my bed was placed in my bedroom [which wall gives me a point of reference to my age, yet it was before my parents purchaced new furniture that I picked out in Maquoketa, Iowa.] And my headboarded was on the south wall.) I first heard a noise outside in a field, we did not have many plane fly over our property so it woke me up. I went to the center window and looked out. The sound was coming from this very well lit disk. Then suddenly one of the lights in a fragment of a second ,it appeared, shot over to me standing and looking at this lit craft. I hit the floor, in that southwest corner covering my face feeling my room was flooded with light and trembling with such fear I could nver forget. But we were a family that talked about nothing. Just before lite I found myself on the floor not asleep and not awake. Got back into bed and tried to forget about this all my life. And as a adult realized you better keep quiet, women never have credibility, you may never get a job. Now I don't work anyway, have health problems and I don't care what people think. Yet I don't want press. This is just a report. I felt there was a 90% chance of someone beening in my room. But fear of what I might see, and never recover from, I kept my eyes closed as tight as possible and covered with my hands. But hours did pass. How many I didn't know. I told my father about this just last year. Not to my surpise he told me to get this out of my mind, just forget about this it never happened. I said, well didn't you have a cow that had utters missing in that field. He said yes. (we were talking about the same time period.) I remembered his saying that the next morning after I experienced the saucer the night before. But arguing with out father was out of the question. It just would not be done.
