Woke from sleep and saw an illuminated craft hovering low on the front lawn.

It was the mid 70’s, and I was just 8 or 9 years old when just after midnight, I woke to the feeling that I should “get up and look out the front window.”

I walked down the hallway and the stairs to the living room, climbed up onto the couch, and looked out the window. It was after midnight but the front lawn area surrounding the object was illuminated by a bright white light; the craft hovered at about 25-35 feet from the window and about that high from the ground. The object was composed of 3 cylindrical tubes set one on the other in a pyramid form.

My father had been wall-papering the family room recently and the white tubes became my reference. I called out to “Come look, there’s wallpaper outside!”

When my mother arrived minutes later, they vanished.

What stays with me the strongest is the feeling that I had been summoned by the object—like it was checking on me and didn’t want to be seen by anyone else.
