Duration:
Enormous multi-shaped craft hovers low over S. Durango and "The Lakes" community w/ poltergeist activity.

2:35 am Awakened by her cat; went into kitchen to get the cat some of its food from refrigerator; she remembers considering taking her morning medication extra early (but didn’t). Returned to bed.

3:30 am Awakened by a rustling noise in the kitchen/living room area that sounded like the dog prancing around when he gets excited. She thought maybe the dog & cat were playing. She called the dog, and he came into the bedroom in an excited state with his ears perked up and his attention was directed towards where he had come from.

She continued to hear the rustling sound (sort of like fast, small footsteps) coming from the kitchen, and assumed that it must be the cat. She moved her body, and realized the cat was actually laying on the bed. This cat normally reacts with curiosity when someone outside the family comes in the house, but she uncharacteristically decided not to investigate the noises, although she clearly heard them too.

Realizing she can’t blame the noise on any of the animals (and her son is asleep in bed with her), she became afraid that an intruder was in the house. She actually considered getting her gun.

Just after having that thought, an extremely bright light coming from outside brightened up the room, completely taking her mind off the mysterious kitchen sounds. Lying in her bed and looking out her window, she could see the underneath side of an enormous UFO that reminded her more of the Star Trek Enterprise because of its detailing and multiple shapes rather than the stereotypically shaped UFO. It was grayish cream in color with many white lights. Her position made it impossible to see the entire craft until it moved away. The round sections had inner soft, circular contoured bevel (like molding). The square section was outlined with lights, and its inner part was flat and non-descript. There was a hazy appearance around the ship.

She recalled having the presence of mind to think “I have to try and remember lots of details, because Mom will ask a million questions.” And “Lots of people have to be witnessing this!” It was hovering very low when she initially saw it, then it moved in a very slight eastward direction before it stopped. It remained stationary for no more than 20 seconds allowing her to see the entire underneath side of the ship.

It then shot off at a tremendous speed in a southeast direction with a slightly increased altitude, causing her to sit up in bed for a better look. Where and when it disappears from sight, she witnessed a distant lightning strike & flash/halo of haze and light around the area where it disappeared. She mentioned that even if this was actual lightening, her perception was that it was far enough away that she wouldn’t have expected to hear thunder.

While this was going on in the sky, she heard moaning off & on outside as if someone was in pain.

Time? Everything went back to normal. She wanted to check the kitchen, but oddly fell back asleep. Her sleep was fitful, because the largest knuckle on her index finger of her left hand started hurting.

5:50 a.m. Woke up and took her thyroid medication which was on her nightstand.

6:00 a.m. Her alarm goes off. She turned the TV on in her bedroom expecting to see a news report about the UFO. There was none, and this frustrated her, because it was so large (football field size); people had to witness this.

6:50 a.m. Got out of bed and went into the kitchen (which is extremely small in dimension and just enough room to turn around). A lower cupboard door is wide open. She could not have missed this detail on her 2:35 a.m. trip to the kitchen. Neither of the animals could have done this. Her son never woke up during the night.

9:30 a.m. Took her jacket off at work, and the motion made her finger start hurting again. She can feel a very small bump. It is slightly purple and feels like bruise. It continued to hurt at the end of her workday and the time of this writing.

She claims to have had the intuitive feeling during the whole episode that this experience “wasn’t for her”. But, if it wasn’t directed at her, she wonders why something was happening in her kitchen.

She said that she has never experienced anything like this. She tried to reason that it must have been a dream, because it is too preposterous to be anything else. At the same time, she knows it happened. She said that her odd reaction of easily going back to sleep was disturbing, and that she felt like she had experienced psychological gaslighting.
