So I will tell you the rest of the story in this one report.

About 10 years ago, I'm staying at my fathers house...laying in bed...about 9:30pm...lights are on...I'm just laying there. All of a sudden the ceiling opens up....almost like if you took a hammer and demolished the celling...a whole about 2 feet in diameter, jagged. I could see the rafters, the flex conduit, everything looks brand new. A glowing orb descends from the hole....hovers maybe 1 foot below the ceiling, orange in color about the size of a basketball. It just sits there and rotates for about 20 seconds. Of course Im thinking 'what the hell is this'? After about 20 seconds the orb ascends back through the hole in the ceiling, the ceiling closes up and its gone.

About 2 years later I get a call from my father...he says he has a story to tell me.

What he tells me is that he's laying in bed...middle of the night, wakes up to a sound approaching in the distance. He tells me it fly's right overhead. Sounds like two large pieces of rock scraping against one another but somehow electrified and very loud...as loud as a guitar amplifier cranked all the way up on the roof. The sound passes overhead and off in to the distance. As it exits, he tells me that he could hear dogs barking off in the distance.

About 4 years later, I'm laying in bed in Oakland, CA, and wake up and hear a strange sound. As I lay there and listen, it approaches and passes right overhead. It's exactly the same sound as my father told me about. Like 2 large pieces of rock scraping against each other but electrified somehow. As this passes overhead I see what looks like flame coming in through the blinds on the window. I thought maybe the transformer on the pole outside blew up. As the object left I can hear dogs barking off in the distance. Same thing as my dad said.

The next morning I went outside to see if there was a transformer that blew...there's not even a pole there...never was. (In retrospect I question what that light was)...I don't think it was flame at all.

About 2 years ago I was driving with a girlfriend to go get a bottle of wine. Safeway was about 1 mile away and I've driven the route 1,000 times. As we are driving back home make the familiar right turn off of the main street, and a few seconds later I notice that I'm lost. I have no idea where I'm at. I pass a school, some apartment buildings and a few small businesses. I ask my girlfriend if she recognized any of this and she said no. I see a stoplight up ahead so instead of turning around I decide to just drive up to the intersection to see where I'm at. As I approach the intersection I realize that I am on the opposite side of the street where I should have been but headed in the correct direction. All I have to do is drive through the intersection, going straight through and I'm right where I want to be. Even taking a left turn wouldn't have put me in that orientation. Taking a left would have put me on the wrong side of the street but not heading in that direction. I would have been headed in the opposite direction.

When I got back home I asked my buddy how long we were gone. he said about an hour. It's a one mile trip! To me that was about 15 minutes.

The reason I'm telling you all this is because I was telling a friend about this the other day and he was saying "there's a good chance you've been abducted."

I have no memory of ever having been abducted but I don't think that means a whole lot.

I'm curious what you guys think about this and I'm doing my best to describe it....not easy with words.

Please advise…
