An alien looking in at me from outside when I was 5.

This has nothing to do with a UFO, but would be classified as a close encounter of the 3rd kind.

When I was 5 years old, I lived with my dad in a two story house up on the hill above Vernon Valley. I believe it was on Oak Ridge Rd. My nearest neighbors were a distance away, maybe 100 yards, and wooded areas seperated the houses on my street.

It was late fall and getting dark early. I was sitting in my bedroom, playing with lego blocks, and had my back to the window. I remember that the window had a broken 'pull down' shade that would not stay down.

As I sat there, I felt a sudden electrical charge all over my body, and found that I could not move. I had no idea what was going on, and became afraid. I do not know how much time passed while I was unable to move, but when I could move again, I became aware of the feeling that I was being watched. I got up, turned around and came face to face with a thing looking in my bedroom window, less than 4 feet away. It had a large head, was whitish, and had piercing black eyes. I do not really remeber if it had nostrils or a mouth, but I suppose it did.

It stared at me for a few moments, studying me. I let out a scream and ran as fast as I could, looking for my father. I found him in the basement, doing laundry. I was crying, and babbling that I had seen a "skeleton head" in my window.

Of course, he didn't believe me, telling me that I had a nightmare. As he held me, though, the thing in my window reappeared in the basement window, looking in upside down. I screamed again, and pointed at the window. My dad turned around to look, but the creature moved out of view very quickly. He says to this day that he did not get a good look at it, and could not describe what I saw.

There were no trees near my bedroom window, and no way of setting up a ladder without me hearing. It was too real to be a dream, and too solid to be a reflection. Plus, many other people describe seeing the same thing when they are young.

Since then, I have had 2 ufo experiences, one nighttime, and one daytime, as recently as last year, and witnessed my more than two other people. Also, I have been plagued by intense nightmares recently, where I wake up and am unable to move, and unable to wake my girlfriend, and feel hands on my back. I get rolled over by these hands, and find myself staring up at one or more of these things. I know there are other people who have seen things like this and would like to talk to them about it.
