|Bright concentrated lights in two bursts, electrical disturbances, magnetic signs.
It was early in the morning and my brother and I were going to sleep after watching a film. As I was laying in bed I looked over at the large picture window across the hall.After a few minutes I saw an amazingly bright light beam shoot through the window, lasting 10 seconds. Even though it was of a light quality I had never before seen, I assumed it was one of my other brothers shining a light in my face. I ignored it and was about to go to sleep when my dad walked up the stairs and asked if we had been messing around with a strobe light.He then thought that maybe a police helicopter or swat team was searching for somebody. It was then we all concurred that we saw something extremely odd. We all walked toward the window and then again, this time only about 5 seconds, and it vanished. We could see nothing else in the sky because the whole sky lighted up, but the beam branched out to concentrate in out attic.
We have never seen anything like that before or since. Ever since the occurrence the electricity in our house has been power surging and shorting. The next day me and my brother felt disoriented and unbalanced although we never consume alcohol.In our car coins were sticking together and the clock was flashing 12:00 as if the car's electrical system turned off.
