I heard a strange noise, suffered a physical and emotional response to it, military jets "chased" it away.

I was lying in bed listening to C2C AM on my AM/FM alarm clock-radio. Suddenly, the radio signal was reduced to an annoying "buzzing/humming" noise. I tried cranking the dial up and down on both AM and FM but to no avail. While I was trying to acquire a signal, I began hearing a "whirring" noise in the ambient background. Unable to find a radio station after several minutes, I gave up and turned my radio off--strangely enough, the digital numbers on my clock still worked and the minutes seemed to pass in a normal time-frame. Once I had turned the radio off, the "whirring" sound became more prevelant. As soon as I consciously thought about the "whirring" sound, I suffered migraine-like pain in my head.

As I lay there massaging my temples I suddenly felt a sensation of absolute and total primal fear. I wish I could describe it better but essentially, the part of my brain that warned my ancestors that they were about to be eaten by a saber-toothed cat fired off at full strength! I knew that if I moved or turned on my lamp that something "bad" was going to happen to me--I've never been that afraid in my life.

Maybe three minutes after the migraine ensued, I heard high-performance (military) turbines speeding through the sky at what I estimate to be less than 1,000 feet ASL. As soon as the jets - I distinctly heard two aircraft - came over the town, the noise, the feeling of dread and the pain ceased immediately. For the next few minutes, I heard the jets perform a hard climb and then all was silent.

I am new to the area I live in and I don't know my neighbors, so I was reluctant to ask strangers about any experiences they may have had that night. I am a University student, a security expert, and an aircraft enthusiast. In general, I am fairly skeptical about UFO phenomenon and extra-terrestrials. I hope this report serves to further your cause in some way.
