Full Description of event/sighting: Around 11-13 March 1988, I was woken by what sounded like a metal ball being thrown from one side of my house (downstairs) to another. I was frightened to say the least and hid my head under the duvet on the bed. The sounds continued, and I remember thinking that if someone had broken in, I would have heard glass breaking! I looked at the clock - it was about ten past one in the morning. I decided I was being stupid and that I must go to see what was going on. When I sat on the edge of the bed I became aware of a small figure, that seemed to glow, hovering inside my bedroom by the window. It was ochre coloured, with a small round head on a flexible neck emerging from an ochre-coloured leather-like cylinder. I remember being surprised by very large flat "feet" at the base. There was nothing frightening about it - just a feeling of niceness and fun. It stretched out two long flexible "arms" towards me, and that was the last thing I remembered.

I would have dismissed this "sighting" as just a dream if it had not been for the fact that the previous evening there was a lot of ribbon lightning - but no rain. I went outside to get a better look, when suddenly two glowing orbs flashed in front of my balcony. The impression was of two kittens chasing each another - fun.

Sometime later I read a letter in a magazine reporting the sighting of a large shiny object which appeared to be a space ship near the Jura mountains, close to where I live. I have always regretted not contacting the writer nor keeping a copy of the letter.

Since I have not come across any similar reports, the possibility remains that the figure could have been a dream or all in the mind. But it could also have been a "sighting." I like to think of alien kids! Thank you to the witness for the report.
