Full Description & Details

Well this isn't a sighting. I feel it is very relevant as I am 99.9 percent sure I experienced a ufo. Additionally, I either was effected by the ufo, or I was literally scared stiff(paralyzed). I am 100 percent sure this was not a dream. If an interested party reads the whole story of the event it becomes obvious it could not be a dream as there were two people present and we briefly spoke of it together on a different subsequent day. I am writing this report almost 6 years after it happened. I was laying in bed at night, because it was almost 6 years ago, I can't remember the exact time. It was probably close to 11pm, possibly a little before 11. I had kind of just dozed off to sleep. I had the habit of sleeping under the pillows and covers. I was in bed with a female person at the time, but because of the way I used to sleep then, I was not in contact with the other person. I became aware of a profound, strong vibrating humming sound, my mind started concentrating on the sound , I believe my mind zeroed in on the fact the sound seemed to be slowly building toward the home from the north or northeast. I believe over the course of 20 seconds or so the volume and consuming nature of the extreme vibrating and humming made it obvious, unmistakeable to me that this was a highly unusual experience. I am in my mid fifties, but at this moment and for the next few minutes I was more scared than when a junkyard dog attacked my throat or when a deer ran in front of my car and I hit it. I said to the lady in bed, do you hear that? Yes. Should I go see what it is? No. I remember thinking by the way the house was shaking and how the sound and hum was vibrating right through me that this thing was a craft, it was right over the house, and it felt and sounded like it was no more than 10 to 30 feet above the roof and it felt and sounded like it had to be just massive. I imagined it to be over 100-200 feet wide. I realize I did not see it, but a person who has 50 years of life experience has seen and heard and felt numerous mechanical things. It was putting out a sound and vibration like nothing else. I tried to move, I was stunned by the fact I couldn't move or speak now at the height of my fear experience. I remember trying again to fight to move or speak and remained awestruck at the fact I could not move. I remember becoming aware that I could move my eyes. I also remember trying to decide right then and there if the reason I couldn't move was from the craft vibrating above me, or from fear, I remember my mind sort of deciding, oh this is what they mean to be scared stiff, am I really so scared I can't move? I tried again, couldn't. (Now for any of you naysayers thinking sleep paralysis , happens all the time.NO! It was not! I have awoken from time to time to not be able to move parts of my body, or all of my body and then over the course of 1-7 seconds the ability to move returns) no it was not that. Definitely not that. I was 100 percent either paralyzed by the sound, the craft, or my own fear. I could not move. After the craft paused over the home, probably less than a minute(sounded like a construction crane was dangling five locomotives and 5 747s on a platform over the house all turned up to 11), I then became aware of the craft slowly moving or drifting away from the opposite side of the house after going over it. The sound from the craft seemed to drift away to the south, I could move again! I tossed off the covers, could still hear the craft barely, looked over to the closed blind on the window facing to the east, absolutely expecting the window to be bathed in some kind of light but it was not, and I do remember being surprised. I jumped up and crossed over and tried to peak to the southeast to catch a glimpse of the craft or the light, but nothing? It was silent now? I wasn't too surprised because I felt that the craft was at such a low altitude, a person couldn't see it looking up once it moved over, so I was gonna run outside into the street to see it. I started scrambling around putting on clothes, the other person in the room says: what are you doing? I says: I'm going to look out the front to see if any of the neighbors are looking out their doors and if I can see anything. She says no, don't. It was her home, and I do what I am told by my woman (if there is 1 thing I have learned it is you have to listen to the boss), so even though it is unlike me, I went back to bed. Nothing else ever came of it. I do remember once over the next few days I said to the other person present in the room: shouldn't we look into trying to find out what that sound was or if anyone else saw or heard something? She said no. I did nothing from then on. I actually don't think I ever even told her I was paralyzed. I was probably afraid it would reflect badly on me for being scared to the point of not being able to move. It is mostly recently as I have surfed around the Internet trying to find if other people have experienced a low large vibrating craft that causes paralysis that I have discovered this is pretty wide spread. I have come across more reports of ufo witness saying it made a loud vibrating sound and they couldn't move than I ever expected. Now this has nothing to do with my experience, but I did find a ufo report online of someone seeing an 80x30 clear see thru craft about 5 miles from where my experience took place moving toward the direction where I had my experience, but 3 hours earlier? I also found a report a year or two later where several people saw several ufos from a highway at night about 5 miles from where my experience took place. Possibly this area is a place with a high number of ufos? Don't know. Just curious cause of my experience.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

2 people were present. In my opinion it had to be an unknown craft of some kind.

Witness Background

No thanks

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have always been interested in ufos. I have seen a few far off things that could have been ufos and once I saw something that could have been a USO, but nothing that definitive.

People need to figure out what is going on. Something is going on.
