I was woken by what sounded like a metal ball being thrown from one side of my house, downstairs, to another.
I was frightened to say the least and hid my head under the duvet on the bed.
The sounds continued, and I remember thinking that if someone had broken in, I would have heard glass breaking.
I looked at the clock, it was about 1:10 a.m..
I decided I was being stupid and that I must go to see what was going on.
When I sat on the edge of the bed I became aware of a small figure, that seemed to glow, hovering inside my bedroom by the window.
It was ochre colored, with a small round head on a flexible neck emerging from an ochre colored leather like cylinder.
I remember being surprised by very large flat feet at the base.
There was nothing frightening about it, just a feeling of niceness and fun.
It stretched out 2 long flexible arms towards me, and that was the last thing I remembered.
I would have dismissed this sighting as just a dream if it had not been for the fact that the previous evening there was a lot of ribbon lightning, but no rain.
I went outside to get a better look, when 2 glowing orbs flashed in front of my balcony.
The impression was of 2 kittens chasing each another fun.
Sometime later I read a letter in a magazine reporting the sighting of a large shiny object which appeared to be a space ship near the Jura mountains, close to where I live.
I have always regretted not contacting the writer nor keeping a copy of the letter.
