Full Description & Details
I was only 5 yrs old and in the large house my Granparents owned, specifically in the diningroom, which seated about 15 people (she ran a small boarding home for the elderly). I was with my mother, grandmother, brother, and uncle (who remembers this vividly.....we still talk about it). It was in the early fall, I believe, and I was coloring on the table. I remember all of a sudden some screaming, mostly by my mother, and she then pulled me off the chair and everyone was huddled in the corner walls of the dining room. A light had come through the window of the dining room, about the size of a basketball, and it was quite luminous but had a three-dimesional sherical volume to it.
I am an optical engineer with a BS in Applied Physics. I specialize in the field of laser engineering (for approx. 22 years).
I have seen three, what I would call, spectacular experiences in my lifetime wrt sightings. The most incredible one took place in 1972 at approx. 12:00 AM near the campus of the Univ. of South FLA. in St. Petersburg, FLA. Another occured over the Barnegat Bay in 1985, and then another on Lacey Rd., late at night, in the town of Forkrd River, NJ. These were most spectacular, and I will elaborate at another time. It's just that I don't want to come across as someone who....hmmm...sees this stuff too often so as to sound 'not credible'.I don't wish to trivialize the incident I have described above, since in a strange kind of way, it has impacted the way my family has thought about 'the stranger things in life'.
