I'm going to cut right to the chase.
This is how it happened:
I was laying in bed, actually reading some Heinlein's Starship Troopers, and I must have dosed off because I woke up to a text message from my
girlfriend at exactly 3:49am. She is in England right now on business (she trains horses), and just must have forgotten about the time difference. I
couldn't remember going to sleep, which isn't a strange thing, I hardly do. But what I saw in the next minute after reading the text message
arrested my attention. My blinds (horizontal plastic cheap things) were closed and angled so that people can't see into my second story bedroom from
the ground (I live in a town-house with a roommate). But through them I saw an extremely bright sphere. The sphere seemed a considerable distance
away. It started dim, grew very very bright, lasted about 30 seconds, then dimmed until it wasnt visible. At first I thought it was the moon peeking
through some clouds, but it was extremely bright. Bright enough to see a definate shape through the blinds. When it disappeared I felt a wave of
fear wash over me. I didn't sleep the rest of the night. I don't know why. No lost time, nothing.
My bed is only a few inches off of the floor. Such that the angle at which I was looking at this light made it impossible to be a street lamp (there
arent any around where I live anyhow) or the moon, which I can't normally see from my bed, I have to be right next to the window to see the moon.
The only reason why I'm sharing this is because it scared me to death afterwards and I don't know why. I'm very sceptical about the whole alien
abduction phenomenon and I think most UFO information floating around is total junk. But its affecting me in such a profound way that I have to talk
about it. And thats the only thing I can attribute this to, is a sighting. There was complete cloud cover last night, so I don't know what it could
have been. Are there any members who live in the State College PA area who saw a similar thing?
I don't even know why I'm posting this, I'm just going to be called a liar, but I feel better after typing it.
