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.

The ball hovered above the large dining room table and floated up to the chandelier. I was crying at this stage and my grandmother kept saying to my mom..."Oh My God, Gloria....what the hell is that....what the hell is that!". It was only in the house for about a minute or so, occording to my Mother and Uncle, but it eventually went back outside the same window it came in. There has always been family discussions about this event, and there were times in the past when my Uncle thought it might have been 'Ball Lightning', but he later dismisses this, as did everyone else, since it seemed to have some kind of awareness, or was controlled in some way (not random), since it kept its distance and floated back outside the window. I still remember it like it was yesterday, but I think I was mainly frightened only because my mother was. Three witnresses to this event are still alive.

Other Comments

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'.
