Clear object, twinkling lights in side, image in grey uniform, military style cap, paralization,loss of time and memory

I will try to be as brief and accurate possible: I am not sure of the exact date, but due to my date of birth and the year I was living in that area at the time, I can estimate the year to be, 1962 and around 6 or 7 pm in the evening. I am now in my 60's so it would put my age round 9 or 10 yrs old when this happened and can remember this like it happened yesterday. I will never for get it.

I was living in Opa Locka, Florida, at the time, with my two adult sisters.

They asked me to please help them by taking the clothes off the line out side before it got dark, so I was in the process of doing that chore.

When I felt an odd feeling come over me. As though some one was behind me, and I could feel some sort of heat or some thing.

As I turned around to look, I saw this object hoovering over top of the pine trees across the street from our house. I do not know how to judge the distance but I can tell you it was close enough for me to see in side.

It had a clear shield or was "all clear" at first. Blended with the clouds. Then I could see an out line of some kind of metal. I thought it was a blimp maybe at first, due its shape, but there was not sound and it was not moving like a blimp at all. As it materialized It was not a blimp shaped but more like a thin sphere. Oval like, and what metal I could see was shiny bright.

I could see a figure inside which appeared to be a slender male, I could not see the face, or, I just do not remember. Maybe a am just assuming it is a male figure.

It was either standing or sitting by a control panel of some sort. I could see tiny lights blinking.

The figure was moving its arms as if it was working some kind of controls or some thing. And was watching me, looking right at me, then looking down at some thing.

It was all grey, or had grey like a uniform,(?) with grey military style cap, flat at the top with duck bill. I do not remember any symbols on any of the clothing. But I do remember the back ground lights on the inside of the craft. They were diff colors and twinkling.

I began to feel strangely and I became paralyzed like, numb feeling all over. I could not move at all, nor could I cry out. I felt some kind of pressure on my body like a vibration maybe, and heard a low humm....could see some thing around the craft like it distorted the air around it maybe. After that I dont remember any thing.

The next thing I know. I was walking into the house with out the clothes basket, and my sisters were angry with me. They had been looking for me for over an hour or so.

I told them I was out side in the back yard, taking down the clothes, but they said NO I was not, and wanted to know where I went, because they went all over the neighborhood looking for me, as well as a neighbor. I could not answer their questions, but I tried to explain the weird craft I saw, but they did not believe me. They wanted to know where I went, but I just did not know, so they thought I made up a story to cover my butt. And I was grounded for few days HAH! To this day I cant remember where I went, or what happened, but I can remember the incident like it was yesterday, and have had strange experiences all my life from that point on. Strange dreams etc...being appearing...

Some type of sleep paralyses that occur when a male figure appears in my room, like a shadow, wearing long black cape and a large brim hat, among other things that have occurred.

Out of all the UFO photographs I have not seen one such as the one I saw. Or maybe I just cant remember all the details.

Then in the year 2005, in north Fla, I saw a strange light in the sky above our apt.

I thought it was plane head lights, but it would have been to low to be a plane.

The beam of light was triangle in shape, an then a huge owl appeared out of no where, flying in front of the light, in the light, looking down right at me, and sounded off with a loud screech, hoovering above me. I was not frightened, but excited. My son and daughter were with at the time, so they saw it too. The light lased for about 1/2 hour or so. A few days later I had a dream that me, my son and daughter, were coming out of the apt, when I noticed a huge round light that at first I thought was a full moon on the rise. But then I looked to my left and saw the moon. I said to my children, since when do we have to moons.? Instantly, the light changed into a sphere, of some sort of strange metal that looked almost lead in color, smooth with strange design.like where widows might have been, but no glass. Just shapes like beveled windows. I can draw it plain as day. Any ways...

It began to shine a light from the center of the round sphere, which started off to be like a blue light and turning to a very bright white light with intensity, till you could see nothing but the light.

Then it swooped away into the sky with great speed,leaving a cinder like trail. Reminded me of a sparkler. Then as quickly as it speed off, it came back, and flashed a very bright light, that was very hot, at me, my son and daughter but they dont remember any thing at all, other than the light and owl incident. But any ways that light was so bright that we had to turn away from it and cover our eyes. If it was a dream or reality they cant remember any thing but the owl and light.

I dont know what all is going on, but I can tell you that I know, what I know, and what has been occurring in my life is real, with out any doubts.

I watch the heavens all the time wondering about it all.

These are just a few incidences I am sharing with you, because they are the most memorable in my mind. Fresh as yesterday.

Have these things been Alien encounters due to their nature? Do you know of any one having similar experiences? Has any one ever seen a UFO that is similar to what I have seen, or the strange shadow man in the night? It bothers me that I have no answers for even my self, and cant afford hypnotism, much less afraid of the ridicule.

What I have just shared with you is to my knowledge true to the facts presented.

It is my hopes that some one will read this and share their similarities if any.

Or some one can help me figure out what the heck is going on.

I do not have photos nor did any one else see what occurred.
