Close Encounter with Scanning Object

It was sometime after midnight. There was a conjunction of 3 planets in the western sky, I had forgotten to look for it when they were in very close position, so I looked out our bedroom window on the west side to see if the conjunction was still visible. This was a night or two after, when separation of the planets had begun. I had been up late doing baby laundry. I was very pregnant with our 4th child, went to sleep almost immediately. I was awakened suddenly, startled, wide awake. At first, I lay still, trying to discern if someone had entered the house before I made any move. Then, in the doorway between the boy's room and our bedroom, (there wasn't any door), I saw a glowing white bright orangish globe floating about 4 feet above the floor. It appeared to be so hot, it was almost totally white. I opened my eyes as wide as possible, then slowly sat up. The object emitted a low hum and when I sat up, it conveyed a mental threat of electrocution to me if I moved any more. I felt it scan my children with beams that I don't think I conciously saw. Two boys were in the room it was in and it scanned my pregnant belly, then a child in another room. It seemd to convey that it discounted the child in the other room, a girl, but took note of the 2 sleeping boys and the infant in the womb, telling me that the baby was a boy. Then, it began to 'glow down', turning from white to bright ornage, to a faded dark orange, becoming transparent, then to gray and out. Then got up, looked around, saw nothing, laid back in bed and almost as quick as earlier, fell asleep. I had placed a large chest of drawers between the boy's room and ours, it had a large mirror facing me. We lived in a corner house in the city then and light came through the venetian blinds and the kids claimed it bothered them. The door was an arch way and the house was not yet ours so we didn't try a door. As it turns out, I also ad one of those floating vacumm cleaners, a tan globe thing, which was in the closet in the boy's room. I didn't tell anyo! ne about this appearance due to several things, my being pregnant and tired when I retired, and, already having a sattelite shaped vaccumm cleaner people would have surely thought I'd hallucinated the whole incident. But those were also the main reasons I made myself so alert, I was wide awake, no in between worlds fog. About 20 years later, I did tell my family when we were talking one night about OOB experiences.. and other 'weird' happenings to us. That baby boy was born Jan. 20th, but I still had to guesstimate at the month of the experience.
