This topic is about Close Encounters you or maybe someone you know has been through. These are very real occurrences that are overlooked by most people or just frowned upon. A close encounter is an event that occurred in oneself's presence that involved strange lights, abductions, and even otherworldly being present at the time.
These occurrences are grouped in to classes known as the Hynek's Scale. (Close Encounters of the 1-7th kind)
To start things off I will share my story.
This happened on a knight in 2006 or so. My bedroom at one of the houses I used to live in was arranged to where my bed was positioned in the corner of my room. My dresser was right next to my bed with about a foot of space in between, enough space for someone to stand there if they wanted.
I ended up waking up to use the bathroom or get water or something at around 2:00 in the morning. My head was turned towards the side of the dresser. As I opened my eyes the first thing I saw was a pair of HUGE glossy black eyes staring at me. The creature's face was a pale grey color, had a sort of a teardrop shaped head, had two slits that I assume were it's nose, and had a very skinny body.
Somehow, without moving, this creature said "Hello" to me (and I could not see any sort of mouth on it either).
Well I just freaked out. I screamed so loud and pulled the covers over my head until my mother came into the room and turned the lights on. She tried to convince me that it was just a dream, but I know it was not a dream because I remember the clear transition of me witnessing the creature -- screaming -- pulling the covers of my bed over my head -- and my mother coming into the room.
That is the scariest thing that has ever happened to me to this day. I learned later that these creatures have been seen by MANY other people and has been dubbed a "Gray Alien."
So when people ask me if I believe in life other than life on Earth, I say "no."
I tell them: "I know there is life other than life on Earth."
