Deep red light changeing to two much larger spheres of white light then changeing back to the red light again.

This sighting occured on two mornings..at about 3 AM each morning. The first morning was in an orchard in Kansas...the second morning was in my bedroom at home. My friend Dave, and I, were sitting on a fruit shade...which is a sheet of corrigated tin on four wooden posts. We were observeing a steady glow that was comeing from the interior of a nearby wooded area, when everything went completely quiet...no crickets..no breeze..no sound at all. I noticed a deep red light...similar at first, to an aircraft light, moveing from right to left..in the sky ..in front of us. I pointd it out to him. He said..."awww...thats just an airplane." I said..I don't think so. Then he said your right! It isn't an airlpane! Its movement from right to left wasnt slow..or fast..but rather..somewhat..well..hypnotic. Then..the red light changed into two small white lights...which grew larger..as they moved up ..and away from each other..in these elongated archs..as they were doing this..they were gettin LARGER..then pauseing in the air...two spheres of a very pure..white light...appearing to be ABOUT 3 1/2 to 4 feet in diameter...illuminateing the tree tops. Dave said."I'm gettin outta here!"..I grabbed him by his shirt..and said..Wait! Look! The two spheres of light then followed the identical archs..back dowm...getting smaller and smaller..and merged ..and turned back into the original red light...which then departed our field of vision..in the same manner as it had entered. The two spheres of light at thier largest...looked to be about 40 or 50 yards away..and seemed to be about 5 yards apart. We then said to each other..no ones ever gonna believe this! We described what we had seen to each other. We both jumped down to the ground, and started walking tward the farm house. I remember looking down at my foot as I began a stride...then it was ABOUT 11 AM...bright sunshine..I was sitting in a bedroom in the farm house. NOW COMES THE STRANGE PART...For the rest of that day...I was wandering around in a kind of a daze...or trance. That evening..(actually the next morning) at what seemed to be about 3 AM...I was sleepin in a fold out bed..(from a couch)..in the liveing room...when in my sleep..I became aware of the room..and from a certain area of the room an awareness ..or intelligence..which asked me if I wanted to know what was in the balls of light. I immediately realized that I could not decieve this ..whatever it was..so I replied YES..I have been wondering about that. My reply was non-verbal. Then I was lookin down at my body still sleeping on the bed...and wondered how I could "see" if my eyes were in my body...I also wondered why I was not afraid. Instantly..without physically turning around..I was "looking" at the wall opposite the foot of the bed..where "I" "saw" a sphere of very pure white light light ...that was about 3 3/4 feet in diameter..stationary by the wall. I then moved across the room..and entered the ball of light. It was very bright inside ..with what seemed to be human souls...no identites..or genders...blending together..then briefly some would kinda "spin off" from the main brightness, then rejoin again. Also I was saturated by a love that I had never experienced before...also I noticed there was a tim! eless element...like a hundred years could pass..seemingly..in seconds. The love had a very secure...serene feeling about it. At this time the same "voice" that was initially in my room... asked if I wanted to stay...or return. I thought that if I had said I wanted to stay..that my physical body would ...well...die. I figured my mom might be really upset by this...so I replied that I wanted to return...I left the ball of light...went back across the room..and re-entered my physical body. I woke up "all together" again at about 12 noon....Sorry about the length of this report. I still don't understand how it seemed to be a UFO..or UAO thing AND a spiritual experience..in the SAME experience..I do know it was spiritual. Also I had..at the time a kind of "flashback" of Dave sitting on this stainless steel like bench..with his shirt off..stareing straight ahead..as if he were in some kind of trance. I went to a lot of trouble to type this out..so please let me know what you think of it...Thanks, Robert P.S. I am being completely honest and up front with you.
