A tremendous magnetic pull felt from the center of my chest

Last night, 1/21/18, at approximately 10:45 pm, I was snuggled under my heated blanket with my cat preparing for a good night’s sleep. As I laid there, I heard what sounded sort of like a helicopter engine only with a slower engine rotation and not as choppy. Very slowly the sound became increasingly louder and soon I realized it was now over my rooftop. As I listened, I knew this was unlike anything I had ever heard before, nor could I relate the slow rate of speed in which it was traveling to any aircraft I have ever known. I laid there not moving. Suddenly I felt a tremendous “drawing” sensation in my chest, like a very strong magnetic “pull”. It didn’t hurt, but my heart literally felt like it was being drawn out of my chest and I could feel a rhythmic pulsing. At that same moment, my cat flew out from under the blankets, let out a shrill and pounced on top of the blankets, staring upwards toward the ceiling.

I laid very still, resisting the urge to get up. I watched as my cats eyes remained fixated toward the ceiling.

This entire encounter lasted about 15 minutes as it slowly passed, but even after another 10-15 minutes I could still faintly hear it in a distance.
