Quickly, I tugged the shade hold down. Previous experience had taught me not to get mesmerized!!

I awoke at 3:30a.m. I sat up and lit a cigarette and I noticed a peculiar light reflecting on some furniture across from me. I recall thinking, that this was odd, because, there was no beam coming through the window. Just a dull vertical light reflecting on an upright cabinet. I finished my cigarette and lay down, once again. Then I heard a faint, electrical crackling sound. I arose, and went to the window. I dept my hand on the shade pull, because in 1991, while living in an adjacent town in an apartment situated on the perimeter, of the state forest I had experienced two traumatic experiences, which have left an indlible mind imprint. This, is why I approached the window in a cautionary manner. This, is the reason why I grasped the shade pull fully exposing myself, fully at the window to whatever, may be outside. i am glad that I made this descret maneuver, for above the next door house was a large, rectangular shape. It was a very, bright, very white glowing object. It gave the appearance of being created from New England milk glass, which was popular in these parts, during the 19th century. I got the distinct impression that this glowing object was very weighty. I am not good with eyeballing measurement, but I think that it was about the size of two, large, sized kitchen stoves placed side by side. The object was very still...not moving a hair...just sitting there hovering, above my neighbor's house.
