I was 4 years old (1959)My mother had put me to bed. Suddenly my bedroom was filled with a bright light. I got up on my knees to look out the window. There were beings floating down from a glowing ship. They were landing in a field across the road from our home. I couldn’t figure out how they were floating down so I assumed they were standing on swings ( I was 4 I didn’t understand how they were floating). The beings were small and I assumed they were children. I heard a noise and assumed it was my mom so I quickly laid down. The next thing I remember is waking in the morning.
In the morning I quickly dressed and was trying to get out the front door. My mom wanted to know where I thought I was going. I said I was going across the street to play with the children. My mom opened the door and pointed to the empty field and said no children lived out there! (We lived in a very rural area) I explained what had happened that night. My mom laughed and said I was dreaming.
This encounter was never spoken of again. Eventually I had forgotten about the whole thing. I walked into my mom’s house in the 80’s and my mother was telling her friend how I had witnessed aliens landing from a space ship. I called her into the kitchen and asked why she would tell people about that event. I didn’t want people to think I was crazy. My mom said that her friend had seen them too.
I’ve never told anyone but my mom about this. It’s taken me a long time to even admit it happened. I don’t know why. I was watching Ancient Aliens one night and your show came on after it and I was thinking “wow! I’m not the only one”.
