Strange lights at first thought to be shooting stars.


A few nights ago I awoke from a particularly bad case of sleep paralysis around 3am when I heard the sound of several neighborhood dogs barking, something was obviously disturbing them. This lead me to look out my bedroom window to investigate. I then saw what at first appeared to be shooting stars in the sky. While I was wondering why there were so many of them or why they were so frequent, i then realized they were not shooting stars at all.

These objects would fly one direction, then suddenly turn in another. Some would hover still for a few seconds. Every now and then I'd see one "flash" then shoot off in a direction at incredible speed. I must point out that these objects did seem to be flying rather randomly. In fact, I later joked to my girlfriend "if they were aliens, well they were obviously driving drunk". The lights do however seem to occasionally "interact" with one another, flying near to each other, hovering then flying away. These lights were visible outside my window until I fell asleep at 6am.

For the most part I heard no sound connected with the objects, although I did often hear the sound of helicopters - far more frequently then i would normally in my area. I saw a helicopter only once, it did match the description of "black helicopters" that I have read.

Being somewhat of a skeptic, as well as being aware of the effects of sleep paralysis - I at first put off these lights to being hypnagognic hallucination. This explanation, however was proven wrong when tonight I saw the same thing, also shortly after 3am. This time my sighting was not following sleep and my girlfriend was over and saw them too.

Also, tonight at one point I saw a much larger and much brighter light. This light suddenly appeared in the sky, and then moved slowly to the left. I called in my girlfriend who saw it and became rather frightened. I turned to comfort her and upon me turning back, it was gone. These lights are visible outside my window now.

I am aware many times alien abductions have been explained away as sleep paralysis. The fact that I had sleep paralysis before my first time witnessing these lights has me wondering if the two are in fact connected somehow. This is why I am checking the "possible UFO abduction case" box below.
