My name is Brittany, I'm 18 years old, and I live in a small town in Pennsylvania. I have always been extremely interested in the paranormal, which actually started right around the TV show, Ghost Adventures, went on air.
Around 2009 or 2010 I went to see a movie called The Fourth Kind, which is coincidentally about alien abductions, with a friend of mine and returned home pretty late. When I got home I passed out as soon as I hit my pillow.
Sometime between 3:00 and 3:45 in the morning I woke up, but then realized that I was unable to move. I was literally frozen, as if I were being held down on my bed. I had heard of sleep paralysis before and it would have been easy blow it off as being that, if it weren't for what I saw.
When you walked into my room, my bed was to the left of the door and my window directly across from my bed. During the time I was laying there trying to figure out what was going on, a very bright light shone from my window. I didn't know what to think of it, it was huge and took up my entire window. As I was trying to come up with some conclusion on what was happening, I slowly drifted back to sleep.
What must have been a minute felt like an hour. I woke up sometime in the afternoon the next day and sat in my bed just trying to think of any explanation I could. Most people would pass it off as a dream, but I know for a fact I was awake when it happened and I know what I saw.
Even looking back on it now I still cannot figure out what I had seen. Could it have been sleep paralysis, or could there maybe be something more to it?
