AS I was laying in my bed, around eleven o'clock pm, I strangely got the urge to go outside. I ignored the felling and layed back down. I said to myself I must have been dreaming.

A few minutes later, the urge returned and something in my head said go out side, there's something you must see.

So, I jump out of bed, half naked, and rush to the back door. My wife said what's wrong, are you having a nightmare? I said, I don't know what the hell is going on, but I have to go outside.

I went outside, and while standing on my porch, within a few seconds this big bright light appeared directly in front of me. I froze! It scared so bad, it was so bright it made the moon look like a dim light bulb.

I called my wife, and she ran to the back. She said, "Ooh my God, what is that thing?"

The light was very big, and oval shaped. No noise. It silently move away and disappeared.
