Childhood experience in Milford, CT

This is the first time I have EVER mentioned this event. I was on the top bunk in my bedroom when I was awakened out of deep sleep. I then opened the curtain and looked out the bedroom window and saw what appeared to be a white/silver cylinder object hovering in the air. I was scared and facinated at the same time. I had always (and still have) a wild imagination, so I just lay in my bed and watched until it disappeared. I hopped out of bed right after the event ended and got a glass of water to make sure I was really awake. It happened when I was 8 years old (30 years ago) and this is the first time I ever said anything about it. What was odd to me was I expected to hear a news report or hear others discussing it. But that never happened. It was, and is, as if nothing occurred. I am a very logical thinker and not some nutcase. I am well-educated and have a family of my own now and have been very successful in life. That one event still haunts me, though.
