Paralizing light and sound dream while camping. Brother reports a bright light in the middle of the night, like a bright full moon.

We had the following strange experience while camping in the Laurel Ridge State Park at the route 653 adirondacks on 8/13/04-8/14/04.

I was camping with my brother and his two sons. It was their first campout. We stayed up until about 00:00 8/14/04. Between the hours of 00:00 and 03:00 I had a strange dream.

I have alot of strange dreams, nothing new.

I dream of a red-ish light shinning from outside the adirondak and a high pitch pentrating noise associated with it. The light and sound were paralising me and forcing me to sleep. I dreamed I was fighting to stay awake, trying to get to my pistol. I dreamed I had the pistol in my sleeping bag.

At three in the morning I awoke and heard owls. I looked for my pistol in my sleeping bag were I was sure I had put it.It was however outside the bag were I had left it when I went to sleep. I said to my brother, "Are You Awake?" He said Yes. I said "Do you hear those owls?" He said,"They sound like little kids playing." We were all awake, each one of us. At 0300 in the morning. I got up and put more wood on the fire with the help of my younger nephew. At 0335 we all tried to go back to sleep, but the kids kept screwing around. So my brother got up at 0410, and we all got up.

I knew I'd had a few wierd dreams and told about them, but I held back the dream of the paralizing light. I didn't want to scare the kids. I knew it was an alien encounter kind of a dream. What was really strange, what prompted me to send this e-mail, and what has me thinking about this whole campout, is what my brother said that morning. He said that "Sometime after we went to sleep, after 00:00, he had looked out of the adirondack and the woods were all lit-up like a full moon. He describe how the leaves on the trees had reflected the moonlight. Well there was barely a moon on the night of 8/13/04, with the new moon on 8/16/04. He was sure there had been a full moon that night. I haven't asked the kids if they remember anything about that night. I don't want to scared them.
