I had one encounter with a UFO in the mid 1990's on the Oregon coast, and it was accomponied by a buzzing in my ears.
I took out a room on the second floor of a bed and breakfast at Canon Beach. The headboard of the bed sat against the wall, just below a south-facing
window. I fell asleep early while reading--this was in February--with the bed side lamp on and the book propped open on my chest.
For some undetermined amount of time--no clocks handy--I hovered on the edge of sleep in a very relaxed state. This was around dusk in February, so it
was pretty early. I remember a very clear buzzing sound in my ears. The more I relaxed, the more tonal the buzzing sound became. It was like a game;
as I relaxed more, the quality of the tone changed. I remember thinking, how strange?
I woke up some time later. It was now totally dark outside. I placed the book on the bed side table and rolled over to shut off the lamp. The instant
the lamp was out, my heart started pounding. I felt absolutely paniced, instantly. I rolled back over onto my back and closed my eyes tightly. Seconds
passed but the panic did not subside.
Suddenly, I could tell the room was flooded with a very bright light. Like closing your eyes while lying under the sun, I saw red instead of black. I
I opened my eyes to see a shadow of the blinds cast against the north wall, which I faced, by some light source outside the south facing window at the
head of the bed. It was a bright white/bluish light. As soon as I registered the horizontal lines as being a shadow of the blinds, the shadow moved
quickly toward me and up the bed, indicating that the light source was moving up, and quickly. I remember watching the shadow of the blinds crawl
right up the bed toward me.
Just like that, the light was gone. I sat up in bed and the feeling of panic subsided. I wasn't calm, mind you! My heart slowed down and my breathing
normalized. I sat up in the dark facing the north wall, wondering what to do. Should I look outside? What if I provoke it? I was certain right then
that if I looked out the window, I would get the attention of whatever it was that cast the light, which I certainly wanted to avoid at the time.
I finally decided to take a peek. I rolled over on my stomach and gingerly inched up a single slat on the blinds. It was night time outside and
overcast with low clouds. Down the beach, about twice the distance as Haystack Rock was from my window, I saw a little diffuse, glowing blue ball. It
must have been a mile away or more. I watched it move straight up at a moderate speed. As it approached the low clouds, it cast a blue light that the
clouds reflected. It dissapeared into the clouds.
I rolled back over and instantly fell asleep, sleeping very well until the morning. At breakfast, I asked the people that ran the bed and breakfast
what was with the light last night. No one else saw it. I called the police but they did not receive any reports. There was a police helicopter that
flew in the area, but it didn't fly the night of my experience. Besides, I'm sure what I saw was not a helicopter.
So, yes, I did experience the buzzing sound you describe, and I was jolted awake, though I don't remember feeling paralyzed.
