I believe I was ALMOST abducted.

I didn't really see a craft, but the event was something I can't explain...and has never happened to me before.

I was smoking a cigarette outside the building I work at, a radio station with numerous antennas on the roof and a couple of large satellite dishes in the backyard.

I was halfway under the roof overhang and halfway under the morning sky, which was still dark and very cloudy.

I heard a noise on the ground that sounded similar to the crackling a dry leaf makes being dragged across the ground. It surprised me since it was very calm at that time.

After hearing the noise I looked down at the ground and noticed a strange light...similar to someone from above with a flashlight beam moving in a space about a foot in diameter.

It startled me and I backed up under the overhang and proceeded back into the building. After catching my breath I went back outside where I saw nothing.

After the sun came out I went back to the spot where I saw the light, and noticed a patch of green on the concrete in the exact same spot where the light had been. The astroturf carpet under the overhang is green, and there is moss coming from the cracks in the cement. However, after inspecting the green spot I came to the conclusion that it was neither the carpet or the moss. The shade is different, and I had never noticed it before. It is still there.

It was a very stressful experience, as I had no idea what had happened to me. And after thinking about it, I started wondering if it was an abduction that went awry as I ducked back into the building before 'they' managed to pull me in.

This was also the first time anything like this has ever happened to me.
