This happened in 2016 when I was in Kolkata. We (me, my husband and son) used to live in an apartment on the second floor of an old building near Hoogly river. Actually it was a government allotted place to my husband.
It was a normal day for us. At night we went to sleep around 11pm. My bedroom had a double bed facing a wall which had television on it. The rest of the wall was empty except for a wall clock. The end of the wall had the door through which we entered into the dining area. The door was closed and the lights were off. I was sleeping in the middle of the bed with my husband and son on either side.
At around 1pm (I will tell you how I got to know the time later), although in deep sleep, I sensed someone staring at me. I cannot explain how I sensed it. I felt uncomfortable and opened my eyes when I saw something bright hanging in the air at the end of the bed. I know it's funny but it actually resembled something like an astronaut in their white suit except that the suit was bright. I could see it clearly. It scared the hell out of me. I closed my eyes and started shouting for my husband to wake up.
He woke up and switched on the light. Nothing was there. That's when I saw the time on the wall clock. My hubby told me that I must have been dreaming but I don't think so. I remember seeing it clearly. Afterwards, we slept through that night peacefully but with the lights on which we did for the coming nights too. Nothing of this sort happened again.
Can anyone explain what had happened? Was I really dreaming? If not then what could it be? It was nothing like the ghosts we see in movies. I don't understand what happened.
