Hello. First off, I'm new here to the forums and I've read through some of these threads and saw how amazing people's experiences were. I was looking though a thread and read a reply talking about these red orbs which immediately helped me remember a past experience I had. It wasn't anything extremely crazy, but it was strange!

It had to have been in the 4th or 5th grade. I fell asleep in my bed around 8 o'clock that night and woke up a while later. I knew it had to have been at least midnight, simply because the moon was shining through the window to my left and it always did after 12 or so. This was in the Fall. Window was cracked too. I don't know why I remember the details, but I do. I know this was Fall because this is the only time of the year I cracked the window. I wouldn't in the Summer because my dad would tell me it'd kick the air conditioner on, which cost him money.

So, I woke up to my cat hissing. I uncover my head and immediately I see a red, gaseous orb floating just below my ceiling fan, there to my right. Had to of been 5 feet away. The cat was jumping, swatting, and hissing at the orb. After approximately.. ohh... 10-15 seconds. I got a little dizzy and just dozed right off. The next morning I woke up normally, to my dad telling me it was time for school.

I figured this would be the place to tell this story because you people can relate and won't crack on me for talking of it.

If any of you have any suggestions as to why I saw this, I'd love to hear them. Questions as well, explanations, you name it.

So you were anywhere from 9 to 11 then. Has anything happened that you recall since?

i can't explain anything about aliens to you cause i dont know to much

and these forums are the best i never found a forum with so many catergorys and stuff.

i dont mean to put a plug in on your thread however it does some similiar to my experience. I have a few pictures and youtube videos of the orb i saw and also clearer vidoes on youtube that were identical to what i saw. Browse through it and see if it is comparible based on your memory.

This is almost identical to what i saw

I've heard of very similar things happening right before abductions; people being abducted and then placed back in their bed, remembering quite a bit in comparison to other abduction accounts, or remembering having actually spoken to the aliens and having seen other people from nearby in the space ship being abducted as well.

I have also heard that before this kind of abduction, you can suddenly see through some of the walls or ceiling of your house and the 'space ship' is visible outside of your house, which you would not have been able to see had you been unable to 'see' through walls suddenly.

it could be a simple alien-made [not the alien itself] scout, or I guess a government scout, if the government is the one doing the abducting.

So there is one possible explaination, although I'm sure there is a multitude of possibilities; eyes playing tricks, car lights coming through windows, someone playing with a lazer pointer while you were asleep, a ghost, demons, angels, time travelers, spirits, etc. Any out-there theory might fit.

The walls weren't clear or anything like that, but I do know this wasn't a trick of my eye. I mean, the cat was jumping and hissing at this orb. It couldn't have been a laser pointer, the thing was pretty large. From memory... a little larger than a softball perhaps? I do not know about ghosts, demons, and such.

It seemed really strange that I felt drowzy and just drifted right back to sleep though...


The thread you supplied me with didn't really help much. Especially with the people talking about the Photoshopping that might have taken place in the photos. They made me a bit skeptical.

As for the YouTube video you supplied, it was similar to that color, yes. But, it was just floating there in a fixed spot, not moving around like the one in the video.


Nothing has happened since, that I know of or recall at least. One time thing. Yes, I was probably 9 years old.

uhhhhh i'm confused. Did you even read the thread?? The only people to "photoshop" the pictures where the respected visitors to this website who took the origionals (clearly posted and available) and enchanced them for better viewing quality. Look at your own thread, a story with not a shred of evidence, talk about being skeptical....

Well Shogunzu, thats the closest thing I have heard that would connect aliens with what you saw; abductees have claimed that red, orange, or multicolored balls of light were floating around the room before the abduction.

Maybe you weren't suitable for abducting, so further events didn't take place? I don't know, just throwing things out there.

posted on Feb, 15 2007 @ 09:46 PM
Ok, my bad. Them Photoshopping it and showing what the pictures could have really been made me skeptical.

I'm sorry this happened when I was 9 or so and I didn't have a handy digital camera resting in my hand ready to take pictures of weird red orbs.

I am not here to argue. I'm telling you what happened. Believe what you want!

posted on Feb, 15 2007 @ 09:49 PM
sorry i was just trying to honestly help you and took offense to your comment.

i think this video might be the real deal

these orb things are everywhere. I dont think those orbs people get on digital cameras mean anything. however these red VISUAL orbs ... they really are something... what that is... i'm still trying to find out.

Also you might want to keep a video camera handy... i do now no matter where i go.

Idk, BallOfPopulation. I'll have to look more into these colored balls. I'll see what I can find. I wish this would happen to me now. That way I could take it all in and have it fresh in my mind.

I see where you are coming from, hii_98. It's ok. I just thought it to be strange seeing those pictures. The video is pretty strange though! I wonder what the hell it was chasing you for, lolz. Probably wanted your money!

yeah between fighting the toll booths, the casinos (vegas was our destination) and now damn greedy aliens flying in red softballs...i'm screwed.


I"m trying to find out what these things are and what they mean. My personal feeling is that they are some sort of drone or mechanical observer. Likely remote controlled or with slight AI intelligence. I think they are 3 dimensional but i dont know if they are a solid structure or a energy of some sort. I shined a lazer light at one of them and it dissapared near it. I also think they are possibly just a light attached to either a humanoid or a larger drone like object. Somewhat like a light on a smoke dectector or any machinery... the actual object of interest might be invisible whereas only the red orb itself fades in an out of visibility. Just my pesonal thoughts on the topic. I think these balls of light can also produce sleep in victims, as when we were on the highway we saw several people pulled over in the same middle of no where road.... either asleep or COMPLETELY MISSING from their car (3am).

Next time i'd actually like to shoot one or smash it with a bat, but i also get the paranoid feeling that they somehow can ...i hate to say this because i cant rationalize it your your mind... or know your intentions..

Another possible theory on orbs deals with ghosts.

A globed-shaped light caught on film usually during a haunting or other paranormal experience. Some paranormal researchers believe that orbs are the first stage of the manifestation of the spirit of an individual that has died, and are thought to be made up of the life force that powered their body in life. Orbs may vary in size, color, and density. Dust, moisture, lens flare, and insects are sometimes mistaken as spirit orbs. On rare occasions, orbs may even be seen with the naked eye.
Did you feel anything unusual at the time?

Perhaps it was a lucid dream and you were asleep the whole time?

Another theory just hit me; like the above poster suggests, you may have still been sleeping and having a dream.

I have done the same thing, where you think you've woken up from a dream but its really just another dream, and you usually don't realize it until you actually wake up. I have had dreams where I wake up several times and see weird things in my room,but the dream changes into something else [falling back asleep], and then when you actually wake up you then know it was just a dream. This might also explain your cat; I have a cat that sleeps with me every night and sometimes I have those 'awakening' dreams where she is doing something in them.

However at nine years old, you might not have been sophisticated mentally enough to differentiate correctly. Also, when you're really drowsy and have just awoken from sleeping in the middle of the night but don't wake up completely, your mind can 'throw' images, and they appear to be in the room when in fact they are totally in your head, but your mind simulates them being in the room. I have had that happen to me as well, but when I was older.

The obvious route to go would be hypnotic regression b an accredited hypnotherapist.....with wtnesses.
The earthly explanations include ball lightning, and plasma of some kind of gas....or other....
The orbs apear at places in the states and other countries regularly too.Browns mountain etc.
They have been associated with ley lines as well.
No sufficiantly universal explanation has been forthcoming from anyone yet.

I don't know... I still don't believe it was fake. Just one of those things where people say it was, but you still feel it was real.

The only thing that made me feel unusual was that quick drowsy then doze back off. I mean, I just woke up in an instant.

I just don't think it was a dream. I can barely remember dreams as is, and when I do, I can barely give you any of the details. I remember a lot of details about this one. Which was years ago.

Because I might not have been what you think it was.

Personally I think it was you average ordinary recording device that G Dubya sends to everybodies house at night.

Royal76, you are correct.. that is what it was. George Bush's spys.. case closed.

No, I don't think I put pressure on my eyes. Again, cat swatting at this thing.
