Never Got An Answer


January 8th, 2009 about 9:50pm, I was sitting in my dining room on my laptop talking to a friend on the phone. All of the sudden, a ball of light went flying across the shades in front of my sliding glass doors. It was a very weird ball; bright in the middle, as bright as the light when you are welding. The outer part of the ball was not completely round and not as bright as the inner part of the ball. The light around it was like ridged and there was a trail of light behind it. It looked like a shooting star and it fell at a slant downward. It didn't last long, I'd say from the time it formed to the time it was gone, and was maybe 2ft in length.

I immediately looked outside, no cars were around and the shades were shut to far for it to have come from outside, plus it was on the inside of the shade.

Now for the weirder part of this story, I texted my best friend Trudy Gloe to ask her if spirits appeared as a very bright light. I got no reply. I went to bed shortly after.

In the morning I got a call from her brother informing me that my friend had died that morning. Her trailer caught fire in Sandstone and she was completely burnt. Very Sad! Since Trudy never got to respond to that, can someone please tell me what they think that was.

Thanks Dede

Thanks for all of your comment. I completely agree with all of you. Dabrewer, yes you can use my story and thank you.
I kind of felt that maybe it was someone who had died that Trudy knew who was trying to warn me, her mother Tonia died a little while back and I felt maybe it could have been her. What does all of you think of that.

I'm sorry for the loss your best friend. I'm sure it is your best friend telling you goodbye or, watching you for the last time. I think your best friend has no intent to scare you so I think she used an orb to tell you that she/he passed away. Or maybe she/he was watching for the last time, which means she/he passed away.

I am pretty sure it was your friend telling you good bye. Sometimes they just need to let us know they are alright. Before heading off.
Sorry for your loss.

Much Peace

I know there are natural reasons for balls of floating light. However, what you explained was not the usual ball of static electricity to my knowledge. If this was your friend saying goodbye consider yourself fortunate. Unless static electricity or swamp gas sounds like this could have been a spirit saying goodbye.

yes! She was your friend, these happnes normally, in Asian counturies like India.

India has a black magic, in that also, soul of a person travels in same manner, as you had mentioned in your, article.

I think that the light was your friend. Because if she died she probably wanted you to know.

P.S-Really sorry that your friend died. ❤

I believe that the light orb was a siren. It is a spirit that warns you that death is near and is giong to happen to someone close. I am so sorry for your loss...

Really sorry for the loss. Guess you two should have been quite close. It happens and it's a form of telepathy too, before or after the loss of a loved one some have dreams of them bidding farewell or some sign or the other. Your friend had valued you so much that her spirit has shown you a sign. Take Care.

I definitely belived it could have been her saying her goodbyes and moving on to the other side (which is a good thing)...I'm so sorry for the loss of your good friend. But we do sometimes experiece strange occurances when a close friend/family member passes.
