Dream of alien attack with "stun" tripod

Not sure if this is anything but a coincidentally shared dream, but while discussing general strange experiences with friends and one of my brothers in the late 1990s I jokingly mentioned that the only thing I had to share was a dream I had had several years earlier that was very, very vivid. In my dream, I awoke in the middle of the night to the sounds of my parents talking very excitedly about something outside the window on the side of our house. (Their bedroom was next to my bedroom - both had windows on the side of the house; my parents' bedroom was in the rear; I shared a bedroom with my brothers in the front of the house; both bedrooms were on the second floor.) I sat up in the bed to listen to what they were saying. My brothers then awoke and asked what was going on. I said I didn't know, but that I heard my parents talking about something on the side of the house, so, since my bed was directly under the side window, I pulled back the blinds and looked out. The night was very bright, like under a full moon on a clear night, and there were no leaves on the trees, so I could see very clearly (as best as one could at night) down to the neighbor's lawn next door and saw there 3-4 "little men" in silver jump suits with head covering pointing what looked like an old-fashioned stand-up tripod camera up towards my parents' window. These did not look like the classic "gray aliens", but were probably only about 4 feet tall, very thin, and had slits for eyes and mouth and two little holes for a nose. They almost looked child-like, or robotic. It seemed they noticed me peering out and swung the "camera" over toward me in the window. I then felt absolutely paralyzed and my vision started to "blue" out, as if I had stared at an old-fashioned camera's flash bulb and now saw nothing but the flash. I then came out of this blindness and paralysis a few minutes later due to my father shaking me. He told me the same thing had just happened to him before I looked out the window and my moth! er had t o snap him out of it. He then yelled at all of us to stay away from the window, and especially don't look into any blue light outside, which we dutifully did. All this time, my mother was trying to call the police but said the phone wasn't working. She seemed to be starting to panic. She then started turning on all the lights and ran downstairs to let our dog out into the backyard. I guess she thought the dog would scare these things away. We all then starting yelling at her to close and lock the door, while one of my brothers was insisting on going out and getting the dog back in the house. Things started getting very panicky - and that's when I woke up with my heart racing. After I relayed this to my friends and my brother, I saw him turn white and start talking to his girlfriend privately. I thought he was concerned that I went off the deep end, but the next day they approached me and told me he had had the same dream - down to every detail. We both got the chills and decided not to talk about it any more.
