Hundreds of lights and operative beeping sounds, hovering above my house bus.

This experience is one of the only clear as day memories I have as a child.

I was only eight years old, and it wasn't that long after my father had passed away.

Me and my family (m other & brother) used to do these gypsy fairs where we would travel around the country in a house bus, we had quit the fairs for some time but still lived in the bus.

My bedroom was in a loft, the ceilings were quite low and there were windows on both sides.

I remember lying in bed not being able to get to sleep (always found it difficult) I was the only person in the house bus who was awake.

As I was lying there, fully concious, I could literally see hundreds of lights as if there was something hovering above the bus, they were flashing everywhere as if the object was moving in a circular motion, I could hear all these beeping noises (and as silly as this sounds) you know the ones you hear in old sci-fi movies when there are people pressing a bunch of buttons in a space ship or something, they were quite loud and very distinctive, but not over the top, it wouldn't be impossible to sleep through.

I'm not entirely sure how long it lasted, I can only remember these two things very clearly, the lights and the noises. Without a doubt they were there, and I experienced them.

After that however is just an empty space, no memory of what happened afterwards.

Now for the strange part.

There was this woman who had recently moved into this house bus next to ours with her abusive boyfriend, we all sort of became friends and years later still are.

It was a couple of years ago she lived with us for a while (me and my family had moved to the city into a house) and we got talking about ufo's and things like that as we were both interested in that sort of stuff, and she told me about a night in Waitati, in the house bus, where she was visited by an alien who she described as the usual big eyes, grey skin, so on so forth...

My initial thought was "mhmm, doesn't sounds very realistic," but then I remembered that night with the lights and the sounds, and I told her about that and she said that is exactly what she saw and heard from inside her bus.

And that is pretty much it, it sounds completely unrealistic, but I at least know for myself that that is what I saw (I didn't see aliens or anything), and now I'm just hoping for some kind of answer oneday.
