I stood there watching as the sun finally started to show its face throughthe sky, a light blinded me. Then.... it was gone.

I was awakened by an eerie sound on the cold January night. I noticed a bright light coming from the back sliding glass window.... I made my way to the window and the I noticed the bright light was coming from the sky. I walked from the window to the front porch of double-wide trailer and I started to feel a light vibration throughout my mobile home. My daughter was awakened by the trembles of her bed.... she ran to me crying. I told her to go back to bed and she did. I stayed up for atleast three more hours and I watched the light move closeer and then move further into the night sky. It was as if it was on fire.. maybe a burning airplane, I thought. But no it would have landed by now. It just floated there........... The longer I sat there , the more I became fascinated with it. Before I knew it I could see the sun rising in the distance. A light sent from the fireball shaoped ship blinded me and it was gone as the sun finally showed its face through the pink clouds. It was over and I did not know whether to tell someone or not, what would they think? Probably that i was a nut and had dreamed it all. But let me assure you, this was no dream...... it was so real.An experience that I will never forget.
