For reasons of anonymity pseudonyms have been used

In many cases of ET contact, it is generally just one individual who undergoes the experiences, with other family members only indirectly affected. However sometimes numerous people can all be directly involved. These cases can be particularly convincing due to multiple accounts of the same incident.

This report covers a fascinating experience involving a mother, her son and daughter, as well as an earlier ET visitation experienced by the mother at a young age.

Glowing Orb

In 1987 Mark, his sister Carol and mother Deidre lived in a RAF officers house which was part of an estate on Muscovey Close, Lyneham, Wiltshire. Mark’s father was RAF air crew so was away from home a lot of the time. Mark was between 13-14 years old, Carol was around 18-19 and Deidre between 36 and 37.

One night Mark was woken from his sleep by a strange sound. He felt that the time was between 1-2am but he did not check the clock. He had gone to bed around 10pm that evening, and felt that he had been asleep for at least a few hours. Outside it a typical still and quiet night. The noise he could hear was a continuous high pitched ringing which seemed to fill the entire house. It seemed to be coming from the back of the house. He had never heard anything like it before and was frightened as to what could be causing it. He was confused and wanted to know what it was, so he jumped out of bed and went through to his mother’s room.

He found that she was still asleep, so he woke her up to ask her what the strange sound was. Deidre was just as confused as Mark as to what the sound was. Less than a minute later, Carol also came into the room, again un-nerved by the strange noise. They huddled up on the bed and continued to listen. The noise seemed to slowly be getting louder and louder.

A couple of minutes went by, then suddenly without warning a glowing orb of light appeared in the room. It was over to the left of them near to the door. The orb was about 4 feet off the floor and was glowing a bright white, with green shimmering around the edges. It was quite small in size, about the size of an apple. It did not look like a solid object, more like a ball of energy. It was quite clear in the semi-dark room, but was not so bright that it illuminated the surroundings.

The orb moved to the right slowly, about a foot every few seconds. As it moved the sound also changed, and it was clear that the noise was resonating from this object. It continued on this straight course across to the right side of the room, by which time it had moved about 15 feet.

And then...nothing. Everyone woke up the following morning like normal, and had completely forgotten about the incident. This extremely strange event which had frightened them all during the night had been completely wiped from their minds.

Details of the experience would not return for several of years. These details came back to Mark initially, and later to his sister and mother. He doesn’t really know how this happened; there was no sudden flashback or revelation. The memories of what had taken place came back to him but at first felt to him like a unusual dream. However the more he thought about it, the more he felt that it was not a dream and may have actually taken place. He also had a strange feeling that he wasn’t supposed to or allowed to talk about what had happened with anyone.

Not long after, Mark was out on a bike ride with his mother. Despite the strong feeling that he wasn’t supposed to talk about the incident, he decided to bring it up in conversation. He recalls feeling the same sense of fear that he had felt on the night itself as he went over the details of what he remembered. To his surprise his mum remembered exactly the same thing. Just like him she had no memory of anything taking place after seeing the glowing orb. She too felt that for some reason she was not supposed to talk about it. Mark felt pleased that his mother had confirmed the incident was real, but was also a sense of fear about what had occurred.

A while after the bike ride, Deidre mentioned the incident to Carol. She too had remembered what had happened, and reacted by exclaiming “Oh my god, I thought that was a dream!” Just like Mark and Deidre she could not remember anything else which happened that night.
