I believe this happened in 2005. I know, I know, I will start a journal of these things.
Anyway, I was at work when I started feeling very sick. I worked overnights and decided that I wasn't going to be able to finish my shift because I was feeling so ill. I'm thinking I left around our lunch time of 2AM, then had a half hour drive home...yeah, I live in the sticks. LOL So, that puts me arriving home around 2:30AM and I know it happened in mid April.
I pull up to my house, turned off the headlights, and through the dining room window I see a swirling white light with red mixed through. Over the years the only thing I can think of that it might look like, is if you put a drop of red food coloring into a glass of clear syrup (Karo) and swirled the red through it, now imagine that giving off light. It looked to be about 4 to 5 feet high and had a diameter of maybe three feet at the thickest part in the center. No human shape to it, but it looked narrower at the top and I think it started to taper off towards the bottom, I couldn't see the bottom of it through the window.
I sat there just staring in disbelief. Then my mind came up with a rational idea, I had just pulled up on a gravel road and I still had my foot on the brake. It must be a reflection of the brake lights mixed with dust somehow reflecting off the window causing an odd effect. Whew! But, I took my foot off the brake and it was still there and definitely INSIDE my home.
I watched as it moved (glided) from the edge of the living room into the dining room and out of sight into the kitchen. I could no longer see it after it passed the window, but still saw a soft glow.
I was completely freaking out! Never in my life had I ever seen anything like this or even heard of anything resembling this. I finally screwed up my courage and got out of the SUV and up the steps to the door that goes into the utility room. I opened the door and stepped inside, nothing in the utility room. Then there's another door that opens into the kitchen, right where the "thing" was heading. I opened the door slowly to the kitchen... Pitch black, no light at all. I look to the right, nothing can be seen in the master bedroom/bath (the direction it was heading). Looking to the left, nothing in the dining room, living room, or the part of the hallway I could see.
I went through the entire house turning on all the lights one by one. Nothing down the hallway or the two bedrooms or bathroom. I checked closets and cabinets. Nothing anywhere. Nothing seemed to be disturbed in the house. Trust me, I didn't go to sleep like I was planning on doing.
My husband worked at the same place as I did, when I picked him up that morning and told him what I saw, he brushed it off as the computer monitor being left on and that's what it was, it was NOT on when I came in, it was totally dark. And, how did it move through the house? He claims to be a disbeliever in the paranormal, but he's seen some things he can't explain.
I became disabled in August of that year and was home all the time while my husband continued to work the overnight shift. I would say it was maybe a year or two later, but at the end of fall or in the winter as most of the leaves had to have been off the trees. My husband was coming home from work while it was still dark outside, he could see from a ways back, through the kitchen and living room window on the opposite side of our home, multicolored lights shooting out the windows. (The reason I say it was that time of year, is because had it been spring or summer, the leaves on the trees would have blocked his view.)
He pulled up in our driveway, thinking WTH? Was I having some kind of party? He said it looked like lights from a rock concert and could see them from the driveway side of the house also. As he opened the outside door into the utility room, he could still see lights under the door that opens into the kitchen. As soon as he put his hand on the doorknob to open the door into the kitchen, it went pitch black.
I was asleep, had been for hours. Plus, we own nothing that would make those kind of lights anyway.
He saw them again a year or two later, but by the time he pulled up in the driveway, they were gone. Again, I was sound asleep.
I even asked my mom if she had ever seen anything remotely like that on the farm, she's lived here since 1959 when my parents bought this land, she said no. I've lived here almost my entire life and had never experienced anything like this either.
I live in a mobile home, this is the fourth one since I moved back to the farm in 1986. I've had things happen in all of the homes, but this is the only that the lights showed up in and it was brand new, straight from the factory when we had it moved to this spot (so no left over spirits from past owners). The previous home was also new and parked in the exact same spot, but no lights appeared in that one.
So, has anyone else every experienced anything like this or have an idea of what it could have been? I've always been puzzled by this and have never ran across anyone else that has had this happen.
Oh, and by the way, my husband still tries to brush off what he saw both times as the computer monitor, which wasn't on either time. Hardcore skeptic.
