|Bright light coming from back yard and a surreal sensation of forboding.
At the time of this event I was 38 weeks pregnant and 27 years old. I am now a 30 year old single mother, in a professional field and working towards a masters degree in computer science. I'm a very grounded, technical minded person who is skeptical of all things that seem illogical or cannot be tangibly seen, and this is why I've waited so long in reporting this event.
I was sleeping in the guest room alone due to my being uncomfortable in my pregnancy. I had just moved to Montgomery, and my 17 year old sister was visiting in order to help me set up the house for the baby. She was asleep in the den on a sleeper sofa. Earlier in the night, we'd left the sliding glass doors open to let in fresh cool air because I was always complaining that I was too warm. I recall that I awoke in the night and instinctively walked into the den, almost as if I were sleep walking, and indeed I believed that I was doing so at the time. The entire room was bathed in light, coming from the back yard, and it was so bright that I could not see anything in the yard clearly - not the pool ten feet from the sliding glass doors, nor even the patio furniture directly outside. I could see that there were forty or fifty large moths on the ceiling of the den, and their shadows were long from the light. At this point I felt a deep dread and blacked out.
The next morning I awoke in the guest bedroom with dirty feet. I went immediately into the den to wake my sister, and shrunk back when I saw the moths on the ceiling. They were not there the night before when I'd gone to bed, and seemed to me to be evidence of the event. My sister's feet and bedsheets were not mussed or dirty, and it seemed she'd not been disturbed at all. Never at any other point while I lived at this residence did so many moths enter the house at one time.
