Backstory

In 2006 I went on a hiking and camping trip with my parents and brother. Little did I know that I would witness something that I could not identify, that nobody believed I had seen, and that would change my view of life on Earth and other planets.

It was a hot, humid day, and after packing two old-fashioned (heavy) frame packs, and my brother's more modern (light) frameless pack, we set off up the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota. As there was no overnight parking allowed at the head of the trail, we had to drive a few miles further to the State Park, and walk from there to the trail.

The trail itself was beautiful, but long and arduous. Hours and many miles went by before we finally made camp and got to enjoy ourselves. We ended up deep in the wild forestland of northern Minnesota. The closest road was miles away, and we were quite alone. It's a place where you can actually see the stars without city lights getting in the way, and black bears and moose live there as if humans don't exist. The only sounds are of nature.

As it was getting dark, we decided to make a fire, eat, and get some rest. My parents would share a tent about 15 feet away from ours. The hot, humid day turned into a hot, humid night, and my brother suggested we take the wind cover off of the top of our tent to let some air in overnight. Just a mesh screen remained above us. When I finally got into my sleeping bag, I couldn't sleep. There was a root beneath my back, it was sweltering hot, and though I tried, all that really happened was that I shut my eyes and lay there.

The Ball of Light

As I couldn't sleep, and was painfully awake--and the only one, I might add--I just lay there thinking and trying to get more comfortable. Even with a camping air mattress under me, that root kept me awake.

With my eyes closed, I started seeing some sort of pattern under my eyelids; something bright, that made me open my eyes. As I was on my back, naturally when I opened my eyes I was looking straight up, out the tent's roof, and into the sky. What I saw there made me freeze.

If you've experienced an orb of light, was it a:

There, at treetop level, just 15 feet above me, was a bright orb of light. It was the size of a softball or small grapefruit, perfectly round, and hovering right above the tent! Though I had seen those UFO shows with bright balls of light flitting across the screen, I had assumed they were faked. I'm a scientist by nature and study, and believe those sorts of things only when I see them. Though UFO theory has always piqued my interest, that's about it. I never gave much credit to the theories, or to the white balls of light--until I saw one.

My orb, however, did not act like the balls of light I'd seen in many videos and had heard of in many descriptions. It would slowly follow a straight line about 5 feet long, and then the light would go out for a few seconds, and return. Each time this happened, the orb would appear at a different spot, follow the straight line again, and go out. It was like a humongous firefly, but with bright white light, and perfectly round. This went on for literally hours while I lay transfixed and immobile, not wanting to move or breathe. When I shut my eyes, I could see it moving, disappearing, and moving again. I would open my eyes again, and sure enough, it was still there. I did this many times, thinking I might be crazy. But I'm not crazy. I'm a rational, scientific person, and what I was seeing was something that I could not explain--and still can't.

The After Story

In the morning, I told my parents and brother what I'd seen. Of course they asked why I hadn't woken them up. After all, my brother was laying right beside me. It's a good question, and one that has haunted me ever since. The truth is that this ball of light was hovering 15 feet above me, very, very close, and I felt that I should not move or it would leave. Do I regret not waking my brother up? Yes and no. Yes, because nobody has ever believed me, and no, because I got to experience this ball of light for hours.

Since my "sighting" I have looked all over the internet for similar white balls of light. Most people describe them as fast, or that you could feel their energy, or that they only last for a few minutes. Mine was totally different. It was slow and methodical, like a huge, perfectly-round firefly, and it was above me for hours and hours. Did I feel any sort of energy? No. But I did feel totally transfixed and absolutely awed. I didn't want to move, but I could have if I'd wanted to.

I would rather have watched the ball of light for hours than to have a witness who scared it away. Some people say that maybe it wouldn't have left, but the "feeling" I got was that I was communing, alone, with something I could not identify, and any movement would end the experience. I didn't want it to leave. I wanted to watch it and experience it. Did I consider waking my brother at the time? Yes, over and over again. But every time I thought that if I moved, it would be gone.

More Questions Than Answers

These white orbs of light that I've now read so much about often occur in the middle of nowhere, as in my case. I don't know why, or what they are, or what exactly it was doing, but we were the only people out there--and for some reason, it was right above us. Did it seek us out? Did it study us? What was it doing there?

There are way more questions than answers. I think about my experience a lot, and have come to no conclusions. But I saw it with my own eyes, and whatever it was was not evil, was nothing we know of in nature, and may not even have been of this world. Some theories exist, like the foo fighters theory, that these balls of light can be manufactured using mercury. However, this thing acted like something with a brain, not like something attracted by magnetism.

I wanted to attach a video of someone's sighting of one of these orbs of light, since I didn't have a camera with me. However, I've searched and searched, and most of the sightings either look fake, or they're so far away that it's not representative of my experience at all. This thing was close, and it didn't morph, and it wasn't fast.

Have You Experienced This?

If anyone has had a similar experience with a white ball of light, please comment below. I am fascinated by my experience, but have not found any accounts that are similar to mine.

Do aliens (or beings of visible light) exist? I'm sure it's possible, but I'm not sure that that's what I saw. An alien probe? Maybe, but then again, that's just speculation. Have you seen the white balls of light? Let me know your story so that I might understand mine better.

Thank you.

      I had two different experiences the first one I was in a bedroom in me and the lifelong friend saw a perfectly round orb but it almost look like it was nuclear energy or almost like looking through a gyroscope it was spinning and moving inside the orb it went by us but it paused in front of us and then it moved on through the wall into my apartment which was on the other side of his wall My other experience was I live in a very wooded area I went outside and on a warm July night I had of been 85° out that night looking up in the sky just above the stars I saw something white moving back-and-forth back-and-forth and an extremely fast rate side to side angle to angle up and down

      @David Mazlowski, I've also experienced extremely large, bright flashes of light. One of them was so bright my mouth was agape afterward, it was like nothing I'd ever seen, right there at work surrounded by people. The thing was, I was the only one around me to see it. Odd! You might want to look into the Mandela Effect and dimension shifting if you're seeing bright flashes.

      As for being monitored, that reminds me of the movie "They Live!" to say the least. You should watch that. There's more in our world than we know, and it wouldn't surprise me to learn that people could be monitored by alien species.. for what purpose I don't know.

      Please indulge me on this first paragraph. It helps set up my "bright light" experience.

      I was experiencing strange behavior around me that i couldnt understand. People were monitoring me WHEREVER I went. They would look directly at me then immediately type something on their phone. It was like everyone was on a common network so they could report my location...think gang stalking!

      I used to live in a fourth floor, corner apartment when this happened. One night I was sitting in my living room with the blinds open in my two-sided corner window.

      At the time i wasnt looking out the window, but a BRIGHT light quickly drew my attention.

      It didnt last long...maybe 2 or 3 seconds...or less. Before it disappeared the light seemed to brighten up for a quick moment...like a flash on a camera. My first thought was that it had taken a picture of me.

      Its hard to estimate the size of the light because it was close and much of what i saw was radiating from the lights core. However, if i had to guess i would say the core of the light was about the size of a basketball.

      At first i thought it was a drone but i saw nothing other than the BRIGHT light.

      This experience only occurred to me once (that I'm aware of) in 2013...but the tracking and intimidation continues!

      Portland is a town full of cruel...sadistic...evil people!

      This was long ago, about 1970 in the redwood forests of coastal California south of San Francisco. A couple of friends and I had found a campsite a mile or so from the road up a creek. On both sides of the creek the land rose steeply, and was filled with redwoods, ferns, and the like. Our site was a small clear area next to the creek that had a huge boulder, perhaps 20 feet high and about the same width that served as the border of the site away from the creek and provided some shelter. One night a white, self luminous sphere, about the size of a soccer ball began to descend down the other side of the creek. It moved at a steady, medium pace, and negotiated its way around the trees seamlessly. When it got to the creek it was directly in front of us and perhaps 4 feet above the creek. It remained there, in a fixed position for about a minute, then proceeded to move, in the same fashion down the creek and out of sight.

      We experienced something very similar to what you've described. 6 of us were on my parents river bank enjoying an incredibly evening last night around 10pm when we noticed a white round across the river lasting about 1-2 seconds then disappeared. Then approximately 20-30 seconds later the light reappeared a few feet straight west of the first sighting. This happened probably 15 times. The only way to describe the light it was a round bright white Firefly. One of us got scared so we turned on a spot light and never seen it again. We're all trying to figure out what that could have been. The area on that river bank where the light was coming from your unable to walk there. We're all still in awe of our special sighting. We're wondering if this light might be spotted again if you'd go at the same time, same conditions?

      My first experience with an orb,really messed with my head,not in a bad way,but a good way! It was in 2011,around 10am i guess,i was driving on a little country road when i first saw it, it was about 10ft in front of my car hovering about a foot and a half above the road.Before I could react I hit it,than it was coming up and over the hood of my car,I expected it to go up and over the windshield,but it didn't,it just vanished,and almost instantly I saw I guess another one or the same one,not sure,but it went down the sode of my car and then disappeared. This beautiful mesmerizing orb,was about the size of a soccer ball,shiny,and sparkly, like it was broken mirror glass reflecting the sunlight. It definitely did not scare me,I was more confused with what I just saw, but also filled with elation. This was one of the most phenomenal experiences of my life and I'll never forget it,and I still remember it as if it was yesterday!

      I found your website with a Google search. I too am a skeptic of what I find online and find greatest credibility within my own experience. However, I know a trusted friend that I worked with whom is a retired military officer and West Point graduate and just a real no-nonsense honest person that told me his experience. From how I remember his story, he and his wife onced lived at a home on a rural road. Their home was along a straight portion of this road, but in one direction, the road has a curve. One night, they were about to drive on to the road from thier driveway when he saw a light coming around the curve. He waited for it to pass before turning on to the road. As it drew closer, he realized the light had a spherical form and not a headlight at all. As this orb met the straight portion of the road just ahead of the driveway, it accelerated greatly, gained altitude, and disappeared in a brilliant flash. He said they had to look away and shield their eyes. Once he seen the orb was gone, he checked his watch to be sure no time lapst had occurred which did not, but he always heard of these stories and those involved experienced a time shift. That's the story and believing in it, I figured he can't be the only one. So I found your website and look forward to reading the comments already posted and any new.

      I'm excited to see someone else has experienced this. For me it was a bright light, perfect orb shape, this took place back in the late 70's on my parents farm. Our home was on a hill looking down into a valley. The other side of the valley was lined with a tall wooded hillside. I woke up in the middle of the night facing my window and noticed a bright light in the woods across the valley. Needless to say I was frozen. I watched as the light slowly moved in a perfectly straight line down the hillside, across the valley and up our hill to our fence. By time it reached the fence line the light was so bright it cast a shadow of me on the wall. I went screaming into my parents bedroom but they told me it was probably just hunters and to go back to bed. I laid their watching as the light moved slowly back into the woods still in a perfectly straight line. The speed in which the light moved was that of a person walking but it would have been impossible to walk a perfectly straight smooth line since there were several bait ponds and a creek in the valley. The light had to be floating. I did ask a paranormal investigator about the light several years ago. She mentioned that there had been other sightings like this but I haven't been able to find a story like mine until now. I'll never forget what I saw that night.

      Hi there,

      This is the first time I'm actually going to 'put to paper' as it were, one of my experiences. This particular event occurred in the late 80s in a different country to the one I currently reside in. A friend who was a pilot had crashed and passed the day before and what could be found of him was brought home to be airlifted with the family back to their home country the following day. They lived across the gully from us slightly lower down about 300mtrs in a straight line from our back yard. We'd paid our respects and returned home and I took a cup of hot chocolate outside and sat reflecting on the short time we had had the privilege of his friendship. I could see their house from where I sat and as I watched a bright orb came slowly down onto their roof and disappeared as if it had gone in. I called my then husband out and told him and as we were discussing it, the orb reappeared as though returning thru the roof of the house this time with another bright orb. They hovered for a time and then began to travel up and outward away from us and the house they'd emerged from. They didn't travel fast or very slowly either just a steady moving. They continued till they disappeared amongst the stars. I felt it was an angel (or caretaker being?) come to retrieve Robert and it seemed as they hovered before leaving as though he was saying farewell. We also said goodbye as we watched. Knowing what I do now, it may have been indeed an angel or it may have been one of a number of beings - extra terrestrial or extra dimensional (the latter feels more right to me). If I had been the only one to see it I would have questioned my sanity as indeed I have in other instances, having seen other things before and since, however, that night I had witnesses. As we said goodbye I felt a splintering in my chest area and then a warm glow throughout my body and it felt right to say "au revoir for now, old friend" with a sense of incredible peace and love.

      My mums boyfriend had told me that he kept seeing ghosts and that they were his grandfather or something and it kept haunting him and he said it “stalked him” at about 2 pm the next day I went to get something out of the car and a white orb moving to fast to say rushed across the tree line right next to me with no movement or disturbance in the foliage around it and no sound, I went inside and told my mum and her boyfriend they both just looked me while he grabbed his rifle and ran outside, I asked him what was going on he asked me what I saw and then he said “did you see a white flash?”

      At about 4 am that morning my mum was taking a picture of the sky and in the corner was a unexplainable image of the white orb.

      The next morning when everyone was awake she showed us were she was standing and at what angle she took the photo and there was no moon, no reflection only the white orb rushing past the trees.

      At 11 pm the next night I woke up to find no one awake but my mums boyfriend crying with the rifle in his hand staring at the window, when I looked at the window the orb had been repeatedly rushing back and forth about 2 inches from the window lighting up the room, I ran out side only to see dissipate into the tree line, after about an hour he went to sleep.

      The next day as we were driving home, my mum got out of the car to unlock the gate and in the trees (there was nothing behind the trees for another 2 kilometres) was the orb.

      Saw a bright star like object today with a sharp white light, commented to my wife is that a star? But just one alone and it was day light, 7pm summer time. It stayed there for a long time from what looked like space, it then disappeared from that spot and a few seconds later I spotted it, relatively much closer than before, but still very high e.g 40000 feet, a jet plane was flying across previously and was lower than this white circle we had seen. It was a sharp light at distance like a bright star but when I saw it at the closer distance it was hazy, misty in the sky, circular now, and as I saw it (with my family) it sped across the sky at extreme speed, not in a straight line initially but zig zag then straight across the sky some 10 miles perhaps in a couple of seconds. I ran in for my phone to video it, assuming it would have gone, but it had actually paused at that distant place, and as I pressed record it vanished. My young son saw it too described as a white dot, zoomed across the sky. My wife had taken my daughter inside our summerhouse by now when I said it was closer, in panick so only had witnessed it in its start like state. I was elated to have seen his, then my son and daughter cried because they were really frightened. I just wished I had filmed it. But this has changed my view on sightings and what could be out there. It certainly wasn't a plane, not a shooting star nor a satellite, not a slow glowing lantern (the speed of what I saw was incredible!) and it wasn't a drone as it was far too high and fast for that. I've seen drones and you can hear them and were not in the atmosphere type of altitude this thing was and drones move at a understandable rate, not like this whitish round object covering 10+ miles in a second or two. I am amazed and feel lucky to have seen it. Now wonder what it was.

      The fist time I saw a white orbital shape, almost like a full moon, it was back in the early 1980’s outside my home when I was a young teen and then several years later I saw the same orbital shape in the same town in which I grew up, I stood on the sidewalk and stared at it for nearly 20 minutes, it sat there just above the tree tops silently and when I started walking home (15 minute walk) the light followed as I kept looking up and it was just there but when I finally ran inside to tell my mother to look out the window, we both saw the light moving across the bay and about an hour later, it had disappeared.

      Seeing this with my own eyes, not once, but twice has me really thinking that we are not alone. Many, many mysteries surrounding this world, this universe.

      ozark mountains, missouri

      Went out for a drive to McD's in my small town last night around 10 pm. Noticed a bright white orb that appeared to be sort of hovering over the town, but initially reduced it to being a star or planet. Pointed it out to my friend, he saw it too. We got our food, headed back to the house, and continued to watch the light. It appeared to be moving, but we were also moving so it was hard to tell. We eventually shrugged it off as being a drone (my friend is familiar with them). Fast forward about an hour, and we notice that we can see it from my living room window, just above the tree line in the distance. Okay, this cannot be a drone. My house is out in the woods and away from the lights of town. We're at least 5 miles away from where we first spotted it, and it's position has definitely changed. It was moving around ever so slightly, and at some point was joined by a smaller blue light that would have looked like a star had it not been moving in and out of the white light in a very erratic manner.

      In the summer of 1974, middle Tennessee. I was 12, my mother and I dropped by to see my aunt the night before we were to move to Virginia. It started to get late bout 10:30 or so. We were standing in the drive way, I looked up at the tree next to us and saw a ball of light it had moved from the top of the tree to the middle of it, before I could say a word my aunt said, look at that, then my mother saw it too. It was watching us,when we starting watching it, it was as if it knew and could understand what we were saying. It went out then came back on, but in a different spot. It hovered without moving, but knew we were still watching it. It disappeared again, when it came back on it was in a different spot again, and hovering yet again. This continued many times until it was completly disappeared, but each time we could see it, it was as if it knew what we were doing and saying and that we were watching it the whole time. We all 3 saw it. I have never seen it again, at least not yet.

      I was about 10 and it was a stressful night.. my grandma and mother were arguing so they went outside. At the time I was really fascinated with aliens. Anyways I was in the attic with my brother and we were looking out the window watching our grandma and mom .. suddenly a ball of light came slowly hovering towards us. I couldn't believe it. It just stood there hovering above the house across from me. I couldn't move but I was crying. It was there for about 5 mins then it slowly hovered back where it came from . I asked my mother and grandma if they seen it and they said no.

      Today, around 10 something p.m. Me, my boyfriend, sister and her friend were sitting on top of our cellar, watching fireworks when all of a sudden we saw some white orb thing zoom past. It was in our neighbor's yard. And at first my boyfriend didn't see it but he went over there and it was almost on the ground just hovering and moving in a straight line. And after awhile he went back over there and it was gone. But our neighbor's were acting really weird. I'm assuming that they knew about the thing prior to it falling out of the sky? Cause they were outside shining lasers in their yard. And then the orb appeared and then they like shined their flashlights/lasers at us and then went inside and shut their blinds and turned their lights off. It was a strange experience and we're still trying to comprehend it

      So..Well,the incidence takes place way back when I was 12 or so. I was sleeping in my room,in my bed besides my brother. Suddenly, I woke up, well, what I saw when I woke up has made me question my senses or the reality of that incident again and again. There was a bright white light in front of me,it was not moving, perfectly stable, just levitating in air. I was mesmerized,idk, when I look back at it, something against logic should have made me scream but, I stayed perfectly calm,hell, calmer then I usually am. I just kept staring at the light as the light provided me ease. Afterwards, I fell asleep while staring at that white light. It was circular and very bright..its size was not very big, but it was very, very bright.

      Another thing which I noted is that,I am more of an early bird but,I literally slept for 5 hours more then usual and my family tried to wake me up during breakfast but, there tries were in vain.

      Idk If all this connects but..that expirence was a scary one when I think about it.. But,putting myself in the shoes of my 12 year self, I would still do the same thing!

      Okay so mine happen to me about 15 years ago. I was in 7th grade at the time. It was like any typical night as a kid me and my sister were playing hide n seek with our neighbors. I was hiding underneath these pine trees with one of the neighbors, which was on top of the hill. My sister and another neighbor were the seekers. We were watching them from a far laughing quietly knowing they weren't going to find us. All of sudden we hear olly olly oxen free. I told my neighbor not to move because I figured it was a trick. So we sat and waited to see if someone else was going to make a move. I hear this loud scream so imediatly I get out from my hiding spot and run to where the scream was coming from. I reconized the scream, it being my sister I figured something was wrong. As soon as I reached her I asked what was going on. She told me she seen this ball of light at the top of the pine trees. The exact pine trees I was hiding underneath. Ofcourse being me I was in denial and told her it probably coming from the house that sits in the woods. While I was talking to her I noticed she was staring at the pine trees and not really paying attention to what I was saying. Out of the corner of my eye I seen the ball of light right then and there I knew it was coming from the house. It was at least 20 to 25 ft in the air the size of a beach ball just floating right above the pine tree. I was shocked and frighten at the time. We all ran down the hill as fast as we could. We ran to deck and sat there just speaking about what we all had seen. It wasn't long until I realized that the ball of light had followed us it moved approximently 75 yards to the edge of the hill and I was certain it was observing us. We eventually went inside because we were simply freaked out. Till this day I don't know what it could of been. All I can say it was definitely not a natural phenomenon. Looking back at it now I wish I would not of ran away because whatever it was. It was not there to hurt us. I have been left in mystery wondering what it was doing..was it trying to show us something or protect us from something? I will never know.

      This morning in a humid warm climate by the coast in texas i woke early to walk my dog. The moment i stepped from under my garage door, as i only open it half way, I looked up through our recently thinned out oak tree about a football field or half up above the tree i saw a white ball orb gliding through toward the water front. From my perspective i only establised maybe five seconds of its travel and it moved beyond the home across the street from me and out of my sight. I have seen previously balls of light fall from the sky perhaps remnants of something whisping through the atmosphere and in the samw coastal spot one that became bluish as it seemingly disappeared ahead of my car traveling toward the ground but not like this one almost gliding through the air with a more refined style horizontial rather than vertical.

      Last Sunday, while at my parent's house celebrating father's day, we were all in thier backyard BBQing. My dad was looking up at the sky when he noticed something up there. His reaction got my attention so I immediately ran over to try and see what he saw. It took me awhile to actually find it, it was almost as if it didn't want to be seen. But I finally saw it. It was sphere like in shape and looked like a reflective bubble. When he ran and grabbed his binoculars, what I saw astounded me. It was a transparent sphere but had lights around the perimeter. In the center, it would pulse color. Eventually my brother came over and was able to see it, but much like me, it took him a while tofind it. None of us could explain what we saw. We saw 3 different ones, though they were all the same. They stayed idle for different amounts of time then would basically dissapear. Before I looked at it closer, it appeared to be a ball of light but when I looked closer, it was alot more elaborate. I don't believe in aliens, however, there has been no explanation for what we saw. While my experience is not very similar to yours, it sounds like we saw similar things and I, like you, am just trying to find answers. I also did not feel threatened at all by what I saw, just my mind seemed to get a little excited at the thought that I knew that I had no idea what I was seeing. It didn't seem mechanical, it seemed alive. I don't even know exactly how to explain it. I unfortunately did not get any photos or video of it, as I was just so in awe to even think about anything else. I have however, found a YouTube video that someone recorded the same thing that I saw. I will include the link. I feel like had it been night time, this ball of light would have been more solid. But that's just a guess.

      Approx. 01:40am GMT

      I know the approximate time because I tried to call my friend after my ‘experience’ and it’s still saved in my call log.

      I was sat on a sun lounger out on my mate’s roof having a smoke (mj) listening to some chilled music at a fairly low volume (this, I feel, is significant). During this particular smoke session I felt incredibly relaxed and and at peace. I’d been suffering from a headache throughout the day (which is why I’d gone back early to my friend’s house and opted for a smoke & chill rather than a night out drinking) but that had now cleared and I was super chilled. However it might sound, I was experiencing a feeling of strong connection to everything around me: the trees on one side of the house were ‘keeping me company’, so to speak, and the stars were out in full force, including a really bright star which might have been a Planet idk... the night sky was remarkably beautiful. The point here, is that I’d say I was pretty aware of everything present, or going on up in the sky - that is to say, nothing really could have entered or left that space without me noticing.

      After finishing my smoke, I sat back and carried on with my star-gazing, sort of just appreciating nature in a way I hadn’t really done before I don’t think.

      Anyway... I’m just laying there looking up - occasionally I’d shut my eyes. However, at one point I opened my eyes and maybe (roughly) 10/11 seconds later, in the corner of my eye and out of NOTHING... a ball of incredibly white light starts to expand at an alarming rate. Of course, I react by turning my face towards this apparition and I’m half surprised to see that the growth of this ‘orb’ has stopped - at about 4 times the size of a regular full moon. I say ‘surprised’ because of the speed at which this thing had appeared - and seeing it increase in size so quickly out of the corner of my eye gave me the impression that it wouldn’t ever stop expanding. It’s worth noting that I’m trying to relay events which had been experienced at the speed of thought... so a consideration of this would be helpful.

      Anyway, I’m now facing this orb fully and in the simplest terms, it’s a big white circle in the sky, way too perfectly round/circular to be anything I could recognise, and it’s brilliant light is far more pure, and bright than anything I’ve ever laid eyes on.

      Just as suddenly as it had appeared, the light then began to shrink in on itself, almost the reverse motion/movement/process to that which had placed it in my field of vision. Of course I’m now watching intently, trying not to give in to wonder as I attempt to make sense of what I’m seeing. Determined not to lose it, I stare until the light shrinks itself to the size of the surrounding stars, and from the point of its origin/death(?) two minuscule lights (imagine the projectiles in ATARI’s ‘Asteroids’) shoot out in separate directions (call it 3 and 5 o’clock), at a similar speed to a plane flying through the sky... before completely vanishing.

      I spent a while trying to process what I’d just seen, looking for any sort of rational explanation. I haven’t found one.

      The reason why I say the volume of my music is important, is because I feel any ‘known’ phenomenon would have naturally generated an extremely loud sound, to accompany such a significant visual apparition. Yet there was no sound - only light.

      I’ll still say I’m only 90% sure that what I saw was otherworldly in its nature - but that’s simply because my knowledge of the skies and what happens in them isn’t fully comprehensive/exhaustive.

      I hope this helps at least one person lol.

      N.b. if you’re skeptical due to the fact that I’d had a smoke, I can assure you I’ve been smoking for a long time and I never... ever... trip out just from smoking a joint. What I saw was definitely ‘THERE’, the only question is what it was. X

      This happened to me last night but nearly as long as you saw it for. Mine was for maybe 3 seconds—but there were two of them that flew quickly by in the top left corner of my room.

      I received a phone call around 1:30am and within 5-8 minutes I’m of that call, I saw it.

      At first I was like wtf..thinking it was a car light shining in but the way my blinds are, it’s merely impossible. I was caught up in the conversation to fully process it or feel any energy it gave off but the more I kept thinking of it, the more interested I was. Thinking what it was, who it was, why did it come, and what did it want.

      It was a bright bright (golf ball size) ball of light and the second was a dimmer ball of light.

      I wish I knew more about it and wish it stayed longer to have really observed it more.

      This weekend, I woke up at 3 am and looked outside. There was about 20 or more lights outside extending from our house to the woods behind us. They were a bright white light and they would move quickly about 2-3 feet, turn off and re appear somewhere else. I watched them for about 10 minutes before going back to sleep. I had woken up my husband and he said it was some sort of bug. But I can not find anything that resembles what I saw. Can anyone provide some insight?

      Just saw something similar; the reason I found this page. Standing at the bus stop@ 1110-1120pm, watched what looked like a bright star...about the size of the surrounding stars, rise slowly from the "sky line" (the top of the building across the 4 lane street). It went in a perfectly straight vertical line. I continued to stare for about 5-7 minutes between passing cars. Then it disappeared! No fading or blinking. It was wierd.

      I happen to have seen a similar thing that's left me puzzled and confused as to why I saw something like that.

      This was few years ago whilst still taking college course from Graphic Design/New Media. I had a friend I went to visit of campus weekly, night, to hangout chitchat and play video games. Most of out conversations would strike up about spirit knowledge, science, space stuff and constant thinking.

      One Night, just came over to say "hey, what's up, how you been" I head up to the gaming pad before we smoked a bowl. Mind you, I wasn't that high and prior to doing this other nights I've never encounter something like this NEVER. Moving on. We got smoked up and were sitting in the absents. Out of nowhere, a whitish sharp looking circular thing flew right in front of me from my left, hovered for a bit, and flew off to the right. Didn't really scare me or anything but more like surprised me in concern of what I saw yell'd out "what the hell did I just see!" My friend right next me asking if I was alright saying, NO i just saw something. and said to me, it was probably a spirit. Like I know what that means. I have been super puzzle since that day up 'til I learned something about Sphere beings and what they tend to look like. That confirmed my suspicion, now on to another one. The hell are Sphere Beings? There's a lot of unknown here.

      I have seen an orb of light just like yours, white softball size. I was standing on a path with a friend when the orb floated up a path, past us and stopped at a tree about 15 feet from us. Joe asked....is that there or am I hallucinating? I said I see it too. joe got scared and walked away but I stayed. I thought I was going for a ride. I stood there watching it and it floated toward my face and backed me up to a leaning wall where I just leaned there ad tried to communicate telepathically, it stayed in front of my face for a few minutes and then just disappeared. I went up that hill every night for months but never saw it again.

      I was a senior at an Alabama college in 1979 and was driving on a dark Alabama road to pick up my then girlfriend and future wife from work at around 10:45pm.

      We had been arguing and thus I was giving her the silent treatment for a day or so.

      As I was driving my Ford Maverick diwn that lonely road, I noticed a bright light in my left peripheral vision. When I looked up into the night sky I saw a bright yellow orb with rays comming from it, like a mini sun.

      I was not afraid and was more fascinated at this unfamiliar sight, as it moved along in the nightsky to my left, at the same speed as my car.

      The orb was along beside for approximately 7 to 8 seconds and after that, it sped up, came

      around from the left side of my car to the front of my car.

      At that point, with incredible speed, it quickly gained altitude with what appeared to be a "wiggle" in it's flight path, then it was gone to 2 seconds.

      When I picked up my girlfriend, I tried to keep the silent treatment going, as I am that cool. However, the unusual nature of this "close encounter", melted that veneer of cool.

      When I said a word to her and began to speak, her eyes widened and she was shocked, as she knew my M.O.

      When I finished my orb story, she said that she believed me because she knew how I was when argued.

      I have never written this story down in the 39 years that have passed sunce then.

      In Atlanta GA, I had been up for 5 days on meth. When I realized that my 6 year old neice and my grandmother both had halos... I got into a fight with my brother and the cops found some mary-jane in my pocket. So I claimed a head injury to try to go to the hospital rather than jail.. at the hospital, Under the covers with my eyes closed I saw balls of "solft" white light pass through the walls going away from me. And fading away from my mind's sight as they went.... Moments later I realized that i could see people glowing the same white light.... I got a citation for the weed and left the hospital freely, since then I've seen people glowing but my eyes were open, and I've also seen it unstable / blindingly bright over the years

      April 2018 I experienced a glowing ball of light coming through my trees. At first I thought it was a firefly only to see it fly closer and realize that it was much larger and did not blink. It was glowing a pure light. The one I saw flew through the trees in my yard, then flew straight up a large tree and then shot out into the sky, where I watched it sore across the horizon.

      I felt in awe and amazed but am now left with more questions than answers.

      Was it a UFO? Was it a spirit being, or an angel? I wish I knew.

      Peace and love to you❤

      Hi, I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina and Just yesterday afternoon, which was a nice sunny day at 4 pm , I was in my room playing a video game and for no reason I turned my head to the window and I spotted a round white orb. Firstly I thought It was the moon but suddenly I realized it can not be possible because of the perfect round form and it's clear white color, also we can't see the moon so bright and round with the day light I thought so, I walked slowly towards the window and it stood up there high on the blue sky motionless for a few seconds until it became slowly invisible.

      This is a well known phenomenon at Rainbow gatherings. White orbs Floating around treetop . I've also seen the white orbs ufos in the sky flying fast odd patterns. They are definitely different imo. I believe what you saw is some sort of entity not alien at all essentially a fairy or sprite. The fast flying ones hogh in the sky are almost definitely advanced tech ,maybe reverse engineered form alien tech but definitely "ours" I've seen them flying out of and into a military base in central Arizona.

      ON-MENA 

      4 months ago

      In the late seventies, I and friends were driving back to Austin from a weekend retreat. While driving through a wooded area what appeared to be a single headlight - perhaps from a motorcycle - appeared on the horizon behind us. However, it began to drift away from where the road was, so clearly it was not on the road, but somehow traveling off the road, or over the road. Everyone but the driver watched it for about 20 minutes, until it finally stopped appearing. More recently, in 2008, I was in Cambodia, renovating a house. While sleeping on the floor of the house I was renovating, what appeared to be a black, plastic bag floated through the gate into what was to be the front of the house. I thought a draft had lifted a plastic bag and caused it to whirl around, but the bag turned and came directly toward me. It was a silly reaction and I don't know why I did it - just reflex behavior, but I hit the floor with my hand and yelled loudly. The "bag" stopped and zipped out of the gate. About 10 minutes later, the bag (I suspect something was in the bag, but what?) again floated in and curved left coming toward me. Again, I reacted as though I were being attacked and hit my hand against the floor 2-3 times and yelled loudly. When I yelled, it immediately moved about two feet higher than it already was. It reminded me of the way a cartoon character would jump in surprise. After the amusing jumping reaction, it floated swiftly away, turned right and disappeared out the gateway.

      I could not sleep that night or the next few nights in anticipation of its return and what it was all about. I regret having reacted with my reflexes, but when something truly out of the ordinary happens, it is impossible to know what you will do, or predict how you, or others might react. For awhile, I felt endowed and empowered by firsthand knowledge that there is much more in our dimension than we know of. I speculated if it was a deceased relative, but then why the black bag? No, it was not simply garbage floating. It came in, turned toward me, reacted, went out, returned, turned toward me, reacted more strongly, and zipped out the way it came in. What are the odds?

      I'm sorry this is such an old thread, but someone will be glad they found it I am sure...

      Wow I can't believe I am actually reading this! The first time this happened was the night of my Grandads funeral (who I was very close to) this was only 2 months ago! It looked like lots of multicolour plasma balls, they floated about about but once they reached a low level they became transparent, I could actually feel tingles or more like a fibreglass substance. My experience wasn't a pleasant one, they actually came into my house even though the door was shut! I even recorded on my phone but when I tried to watch them back the screen went white.flr the whole duration of the video This was in Leicestershire UK about 3.00 am. It proper bent my head, I told a couple of friends and they thought I was going mad to the point where they were worried. I have done a bit of research and they do exist, however I've never heard such a similar story to mine. Literally I had to leave my house at 4 o clock in the morning, my alarm sensors in my house was picking up their movemt. I even got the taxi driver to come into my house to make sure I wasn't cracking up (he got paranoid once he saw them). When they turn transparent if you focus your camera on the object the light is actually visible through your phone but not your naked eye! I'm actually experiencing it when I go outside now! (Hence why I'm looking on here now), but no where near as intense as the first time. I was always very skeptical prior to these experiences. I also think they are attracted to electrical devices, I got swarmed after 10 minutes of filming, it's like an energy or entity of some kind, the only way to describe it. I've still got the videos from the first time, I honestly think it pisses them off when you fillm them, that's the impression and vibe I felt. Crazy but true!

      In the fall of 1979, Wareham Mass, I was in a wooded area close to my home at about 8 or 9 o'clock PM. A light was in the sky I believed was a plane or helicopter appeared to be falling. I thought it was an aircraft on a collision course and took cover behind a fallen tree. It dropped to treetop level then almost to ground level to me to my front no more than 4-5 meters. The entire area became white, even my jeans, the foliage etc. The light was intense, beautiful actually, I stood up and looked into it, the light didn`t hurt my eyes, I don`t know how long it remained stationary or the time that passed, I was mesmerized. others have seen small orbs, (so i have read) This was not small, the radius must have been at least 5 meters. After some time it gently lifted up and quickly left at about 30 feet from ground level. There was no noise, it was silent. An experience I will never forget.

      About 3 weeks ago I was in a room with my dying step father when a small orb of bright white light about the size of a softball appeared just above the floor near a lazy boy chair that was next to me. It was there for a second and I remember thinking where did that light come from. It was so very bright and I first thought a reflection but it was like nothing I have seen before and there was no possible exterior source. When I looked at it directly it just disappeared but not instantaneously, like it faded away over about a half of a second when I looked at it. Then later I was sleeping in a lazy boy in a chair and I awoke to see a similar white orb of light right under the blanket that I had over me. I felt nothing but the proximity of the light startled me. Again the orb quickly disappeared. I have no explanation but i do remember a story I was told of an Aunt who saw a similar orb of white light low near the floor and was convinced that it was the remnant of a child that had passed away the day before in the house next door.

      I think it was 2014 in the month of August in minnesota. I live in a moderate sized suburb where I also witnessed orbs for a few weeks at night. These orbs were orangish in color and they also traveled around my neighborhood staying roughly above the houses but below the tree line. They would glow and then seem to disappear then reappear again. My neighbor also had noticed these lights but we could not figure out what they were.

      On holiday last,year I had a strange orb experience . I was staying in a rented old converted barn in the Lake District, England .. The barn was situated out in the sticks a few miles from the nearest town . One evening a went off to bed around midnight . There was no need to close the curtains as there was no light pollution or neighbours . . . . As a lay there on the bed I was thinking this room is really dark . . I then noticed lights outside the window , my first thought was car headlights . As I'm trying to work out what the light may be suddenly two small bright lights came into the room . As strange as it may seem the two lights appeared to be mischievous and they looked like they were dancing around each other , almost like children playing,. .. As my heart pounded faster trying to work out what's going on suddenly my bed side lamp switched on . . Can someone please explain what I witnessed ? ... it really did happen ,

      I have seen several "orbs" of different size, look and habit. The one that i saw driving on back country roads was the most beautiful one i have seen. It size was a little bigger than a softball. It was hovering about five feet above the road ahead of me. Its body color was pearl white with opal essence streaming down from it about ten to twelve inches. The sun was bright and it was so beautiful. I had no choice but to run though it. I was told by several elder native americans, that its a spirit ball. I only had good calming feelings with happiness from it.

      It was about two years ago now that I think about it. I live up in the northern parts of new England, specifically in the middle of 50 acres of woods, with a half a mile long road being one of the only two ways that connected our house to civilization. I was home alone, a teenager at the time, with nothing to do. So I decided that I would take my bike and swing up the road, and back for a bit. I was summer, so naturally everything was green and alive. I was about half way up the road, with only trees surrounding me, when all of a sudden this ball of light appeared out of know where. It was approximately ten feet in front of me, and twenty feet off of the ground it made a bee line to the other side of the road, when it just stopped. It was almost like it was 'surprised' to 'see' someone there; but only for a few seconds, then as you described, it disappeared. It reappeared off a little ways into the forest, and continued onward. I stood they, wondering if I had accidentally, oh I don't know biked into a tree and was hallucinating, but no this had actually happened.I then Immediately went in after it, but quickly turned back, 'cause I know tree are bears around there. Once retiring home, I googled it, with nothing but those tabloi articles about aliens coming up. I figured It would't hurt to search again since it's almost two years since then.

      About 8 years ago I was trying to sleep in my Bed laying there with my eyes closed, for some reason I opened my eyes and just above my head was a perfect round ball of light just smaller than a soccer ball, inside it was like the light was moving around. This in counter only lasted a split second because as soon as it sore me looking at it, it shot off through the ceiling and I have never seen it since. I told my parents the next morning and my dad said he shore the exact same thing 3weeks before flying across the sky in you back garden. To this day I have no idea what it was or more importantly what it was doing watching me sleep! It scared me for days and I could not sleep without my dog in my room. I have never forgot it, it scared me to death but the lights inside it were beautiful and I have never seen anything like it since.

      I can't remember exactly how old I was but I'll guess around 14-16 years old it was Halloween some friends and I it was about 8 of us were out tricker treating it's this one place called hogwalla where I'm from Charlottesville Virginia we were walking down that main hill it was dark but they have a couple of street lights I we all stopped bc we saw this huge ball of white light in the sky it looked like it was falling like it was going to hit the ground it literally went right over our heads but without any sound it's like everything froze and nothing was moving except this light in the sky we watched it go over our heads and disappear it disappeared no motion on the ground no sound until this day I'm 25 years old now until this day not one of my friends remember that light we all watched only me and it crazy bc you speak of what you think you would do if something catches you off guard like that did me and I couldn't move it's like that moment where the piano is falling and your just watching it fall lol seriously thou I was so amazed at what I was seeing I couldn't stop watching it I still wonder what that was I haven't been able to find any reports about that day ever...

      My family tells me all the time god gave me gifts to see the things he wants me to see considering i dreamed about that flood in Florida before it happened that shooting in Florida in the gay club before it happened and about my uncle Ronald's surgery before I knew he had to have it all in one dream it was weird really weird but that's life weird and I dont understand the dreams when they happen bc they don't tell me where ever I just see things and put them together after it has happened I honestly dont care of people don't believe me I know what I saw and I know what I dream and I especially know how they make me feel when I wake up I never write them down because my mom said writing things down makes them come true and I wouldn't wish hurt death or pain on even my worst enemy not that I have any but nobody.

      I experienced something similar the night of Christmas. I went out at around 10.30 in the night to walk the dog, and I looked up in the sky as I always do at nights.. It was a bit cloudy and there was a moon. I also noticed a ball of light forming circles in the sky!!! I tried to explain it to myself but found no reason in this. It gave me the sense that it was communicating with me... I was speechless. I walked further away with my dog, and there it was, it formed circles following our way far but in our side... then, I changed our route, and took the dog to the way back to our home....and there: the light followed, I could see it, forming circles like a playful child, and following us, I could see it, even behind big buildings, following us. It sensed like something that existed , was inteligent and had a playful mood...

      I experienced this exact same thing last Monday on February 26/2018 at 8:15 at night. I was driving home on the grid road on the open prairie with no one else in sight. I looked to my left while driving and I saw a perfectly shaped bright white light about the size of a soccer ball traveling about 200 feet above me, I was travelling at 100 kilometres when this thing made an arcing manoeuvre passing me and began to plummet to the earth dead centre in the middle of the road, about 50 feet before impact it completely vanished. It had no tail made no sound but strangely I sensed that it was intelligent. I live in Rural Saskatchewan , very weird experience. I did not feel scared, I only felt amazed and bewildered by this.

      I experienced something similar as a child and I still can't explain it. I was in my room about to go to bed and I saw a bright light outside my window in the distance. I also remember feeling completely fixated on this light. As I stared at the light it came closer and closer until it got as close to my window as possible. It quickly bolted to the right out of my vision. Later that night, in the early morning, I was woke up by my little sister screaming from a nightmare. For some reason I walked into another room in our home and I saw the light outside that window as well like it was circling my house at the window level. It scared the crap out of me as a child but I'm very curious now. I wish I asked my sister what she was screaming about but never did and now she doesn't remember...

      I experienced similar back in 1990. I was in Michigan on a military base. It was about 4 of us at a guard post around midnight. We noticed the light about 1/4 mile away but it just looked like someone walking through the woods with a flashlight. A couple minutes later we were shocked to see a ball of light hovering about 8 feet above us. After about 5 seconds over us it kept moving through the woods slowly.

      Some guys were visibly shaken.

      Friday night I saw a small really bright peak in the corner of the window, looking around the kitchen, I though it was someone trying to break in the house with a flashlight, then the bright ball of light shot across, making the curtains fly up and went through the room going through another window.

      I, and several other kids from my neighborhood, experienced a series of events in the quiet central Massachusetts town of Boylston, during a clear summer’s night of 1969 that, to this day, have defied logical explanation. Following an amateur puppet show in a neighbor’s basement, we were fully engaged in an outdoor game of flashlight tag. I was "it", and I counted to 100 while the others scattered, and hid themselves. I was standing on the brick patio behind my neighbor's house, and I was facing out over the backyard toward the edge of the woods about 75 feet away. I noticed a white softly glowing crescent (quarter-moon shaped partial orb) that floated between two “high-bush” blueberry bushes. The two bushes were approximately 15 feet apart. Then, I noticed another crescent, followed by another. The crescents were a about the diameter of a basketball, and the bushes were located about 50 feet from were I was standing. One crescent would float about 5 feet off the ground from behind the leftmost bush and drift slowly (roughly, walking speed) parallel to the ground until it disappeared behind the bush on the right. The timing of the glowing, floating, crescents was constant. As one crescent disappeared on the right, another would emerge from the left. Perplexed, I watched for several of these cycles until I decided to illuminate the area with my flashlight. There was nothing there! Whenever the flashlight was turned off, the crescents would immediately resume their left to right track. Flashlight on, and nothing was there. Flashlight off, and there they were again. This went on for a minute or two until I called in John, the eldest member of the group. I showed him the subject of my consternation, and he proceeded to probe with the flashlight, just as I had done. He was obviously concerned over what we were both witnessing, and he promptly attempted to call in the rest of the group. I was a bit unnerved at this point, but not in a panic. All emerged from their hiding places, and gathered on the patio, except for his younger sister and one of her friends. Oddly, they failed to respond at all. At this point, we all ascended the stairs that led to the carport, and to the backdoor to the house (John lived here). Of course, it was locked, so John rapped his knuckles on the door a few times. As we waited for someone inside the house to let us in, the two “missing” girls ran up the stairs, hysterically screaming that they had just seen two short hairy or shaggy figures in the woods. (Note: Subsequent discussion would characterize the two figures as resembling cousin “It” of Addams Family fame.) They saw the figures from their hiding place behind a large pine tree to the right of the blueberry bushes. With that, someone in the group pointed above the treetops, also off to the right behind the house, and yelled, “What’s that?”. I glanced up to see a dark, slightly domed, cigar shaped object with a lighted white outline just inside its perimeter, silhouetted against the night sky. A small rectangular red light split by two vertical dark bars, was located inside the white outline, low and toward the front of the object. It appeared to me that the object was about 75 feet in length, 150 feet above the ground, at a range of about 200 yards, and was located over a field beyond the wooded area behind the house. It drifted away slowly and silently further to our right, in a southerly direction, until it moved out of sight. With that, John had seen enough. With his fist, he punched out a pane of glass in the Dutch door, reached through the jagged opening, and released the lock from the inside. Once safely inside, we breathlessly recounted the story to our parents. They immediately went outside to see for themselves exactly what we were talking about. Of course, by that time there was nothing left for them to view.

      Was the summer of 2017 at approx 1.30 am I was laying in bed looking out the glass door of my 1st floor bedroom at the stars through the forest I live in and was nodding off when a BIG round bright white object floated past through the forest, I could see it so clearly, I didn't need to put my glasses onto make a clear view, it was clear and crisp.

      I quickly jumped up out of bed and went to the open door and just stared in aw, it was amazing, mus have been about 1.5 meters wide and it was only about 50 meters from me.

      Well next morning I told my wife about it and she said she got up in the middle of the night and saw a bright light out the same window.

      Ok now it's Summer 2018, last night I was woken by a very bright white light shining on me through the Celestery windows up high, I thought how strange the full moon has never been so bright as to wake me up, so I pulled the sheet over my head and went to sleep, I woke up some time later and all was black, no moon light outside.

      This morning I checked the Moon phase and we are in a waning crescent Moon, I wonder what this returning light is.

      Ohh I'm in Australia on the east coast in a forest of 400 acres near Brisbane.

Flying, kind of slow and unsteady was a source of light and i just stood there steering at it as it past me and kept going until it was out of sight. I'll never forget this feeling of such peace. I was around 8 years old at the time so no one belived me, but i remember it as clear as day.

      I have saw a slow moving orb many years ago,my friend saw it too,it was in a house we was babysitting at,watching television.

      I noticed it before my friend,it was about the size of a tennis ball or light bulb ,it moved in a slow horizontal line across the room 5ft from ground,it went towards television an down back of it,I at this time was stood at door terrified an told my friend she asked where it was I told her its gone behind television,it then floated up ,we ran out the house leaving our other friend who was upstairs to continue with babysitting alone,what I didn't understand was how my friend didn't see it at first go behind television as she was looking in the direction,but she saw it when it came up behind television,it was lit up but didn't give off light like a torch would and seem to have a small trail behind as it moved,I have never saw one since that was about 45 years ago ,seems like yesterday. another thing the house backed onto a graveyard,don't know if that is significant or not

      I had a large ball of light travel from the outside and came through the glass doors and stay for a second or two. It was about 3 feet round and solid white. Not see through. It then began to move slowly and then speed up and made its way to me as I was sitting on the couch about 15 feet away. It pushed me back into the couch and went out the front window. Never saw it again. My hair changed from dead straight to curly after that.

      Again, approximately4:30 a.m.,lying in bed, noted what looked like a small arch of light in the dark sky. As I never see stars here in the mountains so I got up. As again my contacts were not in I got my binoculars and noted it was comprised of small colored lights. If I followed it with my eyes it seemed to zig zag quickly. If I looked away it seemed stationary. This was in south west Mexico. Second time I have seen an orb. The first one was several months ago but that one was in my room and interacted with me. Last time I checked it was gone.

      I see them everynight but there not bright white. They are red or blue and sometimes black. i am the least spiritual person you would ever meet and have no understanding on why i was chosen to know the answer of these orb like holograms along with a whole other stuff i cant explain and dont feel like it. If you look closer into the sphere you can a spirit or character of some shape and from what the higher power along with the trees is your suppose to eat them or breath them in as i like to look at it and wow does it give off some energy. Look thru an ir camera at some trees during the night and you will see them sucking them in like skittles. Sounds crazy an d i would have laughed in my own face about 6 months ago so i dont expect anyone to believe this but for the ones who have been there seeing these "orbs handed to you by all types of wierd things know that its true and that is just the start of seeing a whole lot more. Goodluck on seeing more!

      Yesterday i woke up from my sleep and saw a super bright white light hovering above my chest closer to my neck. it was the size of a softball but so bright that i couldn't see the rest of my body. I was sleeping on my back at the time. The weird thing is that when i saw it i just felt so much love and happiness, i cant even explain the feeling. I felt as if irt was reading my heart beat. I then layed back down and woke up like a minute later still feeling so much love. I was thinking to myself did i dream that or was it real. So today as i was going to shower i looked in the mirror and noticed that i have a perfect round circle bruise looking mark in the middle of my neck. i did not have this the day before. idk whats going on, just wanted to share my story.

      My sister, my fiancé, and I were out walking the dogs this morning when we saw an orb!!!! My fiancé unfortunately didn't see it but my sister did, it was perfectly round, purest white light and the size of a tennis ball. It was about 20ft from the ground and moved a little slower then someone throwing a ball, then it vanished without trace. Simply disappeared! This was on Westbrook beach, Margate in Kent. My sister then saw a second one about 20mins later doing exactly the same thing. It was beautiful.

      OMG!!! This is what my mother's told me!!! My dad and her were asleep in bed but mum was awake and she saw a ball of white light hovering over her, like just slowly and then the light split into two and shot off like a rocket!!! She wonders if it was her dad who had just passed and maybe his sister together but it's just not "spirit like" to me....

      Once it left, my mum nudged my dad and said "paul, paul wake up, omg did u see that"?!!!

      My dad had just been recovering from a massive heart attack and he's a huuuuge snorer/deep sleeper (could sleep standing up), he was built like an ox, a strong man, (blokey, bloke) and the biggest skeptic I know!...He was awake and mum said he replied in a teeny tiny voice "yes i did"...

      That makes me laugh because I never imagined him to be that amazed! He always thought it was all bull! Its like he has always believed there was something greater out there! I dunno what it was, but dad can still back my mum up on this, he saw it too at the same time! I see where mum thinks it was a sign from her loved ones, maybe it was, but I'm very spiritual and I don't feel like bright white light just hovering over you and then shooting off at the speed of light is that. I feel it could be something"extraterrestrial ", to me it would fit in that catagory....

      I have seen these strange light balls. I have seen them white, blue, and black. Recently I saw a white one that lingered around me for a while. It separated into smaller objects. I think they are pure energy. They could be spirits or entities from another universe that somehow come inside our planet. I hope that someday I will have a trusted public forum to share my photos.

      I couldn't sleep and when I finally went back to bed it was around 2:30 a.m. I looked out my bedroom window to see the moon and there was a very bright perfectly round white ball in the sky that was "sparkling". It was fixed in the sky. I laid down in bed a bit freaked out and then when I looked out the window again it was slowly moving downward, in a straight downward direction and then it disappeared behind a neighbor's house.

      I was driving down the back road to my house last night (I live in the country so road is dark and away from town) and as I was approaching the river to my right on the bridge I see glowing balls of fire twirling around almost like how the natives do with the chain and fire in each hand but I could not see any person nor any car. All I could see is these erratic fire balls swirling around each other with smaller flicks of light swirling around them. I just stared trying to logically explain what I was seeing. This was at 10:30 at night. I live in a small red neck country town not a city. I was going to stop my car and get out but something told me not the right thing to do. I wish I thought to use my phone and video it but i was afraid to come to a complete stop as road is isolated. Then I was going to turn around and go back and look again but I half expected those lights might follow me (my mind set at the time) I went there today but no evidence of anything that I could see. I regret not stopping! !!! Damn weirdest thing I ever saw. It was not up in the sky but at eye level.

      Last week me and my step daughter witnessed a white orb that filled us into the garage then exploded into thousands of little orbs that fixed away making a slight high pitch buzz at the end. I almost thought someone took a picture beside us with a old first gen flash camera. . This is bow the second time in my life that I've seen an orb up close and personal. Another time I was at a friend's party and we were all standing in the kitchen and only me and one other person are the same time watched an orb fly into an empty beer box and it also exploded into many white orb and we both said wow did you see that at the same time and when we looked nothing was there no burns or evidence of anything that may have cause that. I also have had them in many of my pics from the past. The spirits and holy energy is among us no big secret.

      Hi, I have seen this light as well. It happened right after a year and a half after my mom passed away. It was also odd because the day "they" appeared was on my mom's birthday as well. I would even say right around her birth time. It was around 3 or 4 am when I was awaken from my sleep. I remember feeling very calm and happy. I was going through a lot of grief and I think something was there to comfort me.
