Great stories, very thrilling and exciting!
Well here goes mine
I was about 10 years old, living in a small village in Austria in the middle of nowhere. I've experienced a lot of strange things there, most of the
time due to my active and rich imagination but some events are still unexplainable to this day, like the following that happened around early may. We
had family members visiting us including my cousin, we two wanted to camp outside for the night, clear night sky, warm temperature, just perfect for
such an occasion, so my parents prepared the tent for us about 200 m away from the house next to a football- and wheat-field, truly a pitch-dark place
since there were no streetlamps or houses around.
We were very excited, we used to camp a lot together and it was always quite an experience, but what happened that night scared me for life.
After having dinner with my family, my cousin and I decided to get going to the tent, it was late already for our means, about 11pm, so we hit the
sleeping bags. After awhile of talking and joking around we closed our eyes and slowly drifted to sleep.
About two hours later I woke up due to a strong wind blowing against the tent, making hissing/ghostly noises and there also seemed to be flashes of
light, a lighting it seemed at first, just without any rain. Shortly after my cousin also awoke due to the wind, and the flashes of light became more
regular, we slowly noticed that this "light" was no lightning at all, it suddenly seemed as if it was pulsating, always coming from the same
direction above our tent. Now at this point, looking outside was no possibility, we were scared to hell. It pulsated faster and faster till the whole
tent just lit up in complete brightness, it almost seemed as if the light was inside the tent, it became stronger and stronger by each second,
accompanied by a deep humming noise that could be felt throughout the whole body and the floor. Now this lasted for about 10 minutes becoming more
extreme to the end till everything just vanished, the light, the sound, even the wind was gone from one moment to the other.
We had no clue what just happened, so we dared to leave the tent and ran with all power back home, collapsing in front of my parents and crying. We
told them what happened but they didn't seem to have noticed anything at all.
No idea what it was, could have been an UFO, could have been something completely different (a failure in the matrix hehe), I just don't know and
thinking about it gives me the creeps.
