Orb shot a beam into my face.

July 31st, 1040 pm… I have reported what I have seen on every single clear night but one night…since June 17th to MUFON, and the National UFO Reporting Center. I have seen mostly orbs with 2 witnesses…several times per night.

I have said I will take a polygraph, I have offered for someone to come out and view it with me, and I took 2 photos, and I have DVD video evidence as well. But tonight was much different.

I was not even looking up to the sky, and a light hit my face from above. The light blinded me for a second…I looked up and saw in detail a white orb, at a very high altitude, seemingly spinning, and a blue-white beam was shining from it. As I jumped up out of my seat, (thinking I was going to have a Travis Walton Experience), the beam shut off. The object was hovering. When the light/beam retracted, the object changed directions, moved even higher, and started moving northeast at a fast rate, until it was out of sight. My face right now is tingling…and I am actually shaking, as it scared the hell out of me. I know this all sounds hard to believe, but I am willing to show you what I saw, and I am willing to take a polygraph. The object was bright white, and made not a sound. My face is not sun burned like Richard Dreyfus in Close Encounters, but it is tingling right now.

I want someone to sit with me. You don’t even have to look up all night at all. I will spot it…and direct you to where it is in the sky. For some reason, it seemed to want to make contact with me. I think this is significant, and I want someone to check it out, follow up on this…before they stop appearing. This has been consistent since June 17, 2008, but never before had it shined a beam down. I am 40 years old, never saw anything before…I actually hate being ridiculed, and I cannot stand attention…but I do think this is important…I have a gut feeling…that will not go away. That is why I go outside every single night…hoping to see it again…They just started showing up…I don’t know why…I don’t know how…but I am beyond frustrated with the reactions I get from people, and at this point, I refuse to talk to anyone except people who will at least hear me out…and have experience in dealing with UFO’s. Whatever shot a beam down at me…was at an extremely high altitude.

I don’t even bother telling the neighbors, or my friends about this. My parents never believed me either…until they saw it themselves. I have seen more stuff like this than anyone I have read about…and no one seems to care. I just don’t think this one can be explained away. What experimental aircraft makes no noise…hovers….and shines beams down to someone’s face from way up there? My face has been tingling since 10:40…it is now…11:22.
