This happened circa 1966 when I was about
10 years old and my sister was about 16 years
old. It is middle of deep night around 2 a.m.and
I'm sound asleep. I'm awakened (startled) by my
sister who is straddling me on all fours on my
bed - looking over me, staring me in the face at
a very close range. I start to scream, then
realizing this person is my sister, I don't - she
also puts her hand over my mouth (her left hand
across my face, covering my mouth). She says for
me to 'wake up', 'look', and 'watch', and
I'm a little confused and quickly scared from
believing my own eyes. There are 3 distinct
'lights' (balls of energy?) in our bedroom!
They're not communicating, nor making sounds, but
I'm 'getting' this message that 'everything's
okay - such to the point that neither of us call
to my parents for help or safety. (I find this
extremely strange since we'd holler for them at
the sign of a water bug or roach in a second).
Our home was large, old colonial style, just a
few streets over from the Intracoastal Waterway
(main canal for Ports from Houston-Galveston-Port
Arthur and Beaumont). Lots of old trees, but no
signs of 'light sources' anywhere nearby. We
looked to see where they were coming from, but
found nothing. This 'mutual experience of ours
was also kept 'secret'. We never even discussed
it much among ourselves until many years later.
I used to 'see' things; figures, silhouettes, -
sometimes they frightened me, other times seemed
intrigued with what I was doing (playing piano in
the old living room for instance) - many 'signs'
of other lives around there that had come and
gone or perhaps preparing to come? I don't know.
We found an old trunk in the attic one summer
that held photos identical to some of the things
I was seeing around the house - then, we
discovered we needed to discuss some of this
stuff. We didn't talk about it much at all,
though. I wish we had. My father had 'visions' of
these things too, but not Mom.
My sister was 'spooked' from early on. The least
little thing would frighten her and she hated to
be alone. She was diagnosed with cancer in 1996.
In the Fall of 96 during her radiation therapy,
we had another 'incident together'. I was driving
her Grand Cherokee Jeep back to her house from a
day-long visit with our parents.
She was tired. it was about 8 p.m. We were going
westbound on I-10 from Beaumont to Pasadena,
Texas. Around Winnie (beach road cutoff area) the
night was foggy (normal for Spring & Fall
around here) and we couldn't see anything. I mean
nothing. It was as if everything simply
disappeared or something. What's weird about this
evening is that although we could see no traffic,
I mean not so much as one car, the whole way, no
businesses, no residences, no animals, no lights
of any sort. I don't even recollect the road much
except that I know I was driving the car.
We did however see this 'object' on the horizon a
long way off up ahead in the distance! There was
no fog there -?-. We began discussing this new
fandangled light - wondering what new overpass
was up, or just what had occurred because we both
knew this road so well, having traveled it for
There were no overpasses of any kind in this
particular stretch of the road. All of a sudden,
this 'object' was literally on top of us. It had
traveled a couple of miles toward us, and was
all-of-a-sudden travelling with us in the
complete opposite direction with us! It was so
close to the car, I was afraid it might 'attach
itself' to the top of the car or hit us or ???. I
tried to stay in control, for my sister's sake.
She was immediately 'taken' mentally by this
object. No beams of light, no floating bodies or
anything but many, many brilliant lights around
it - as if they were coming from the inside of it
- like a holographic display or something (that's
the closest I've found so far).
The brilliance was like nothing I've ever seen.
We don't have colors like that, the closest being
red & a bluish-white. The intensity was
unbelievable. I mean, I'm an accomplished
designer with ' color' as a specialty. We just
don't have this kind of color! My sister was
white, 'frozen', her knuckles were so white and
tight, they looked like they might tear apart!
Her fists were wrapped around the edge of her
passenger's seat. She was both non-breathing
& hyper-ventilating. I kept ' slapping her
leg and telling her to breathe - then she'd
hyperventilate again. It was as if something else
was in complete control of her.She wouldn't look
away at all - only a slight glance to me at the
first of it. Then, her eyes were bulging and
fixated on the object. I'm positive they
communicated or interacted in some way.
My familiarity with this thing was that the same
kind of 'calming' affect came over me - not in a
voice, but as if someone 'put' a message onto my
brain of 'everything's okay'.
This 'encounter' lasted for 12.5 -13 miles! To my
memory there were no changes in my car, we did
not stop - rather, I sped up trying to 'get away'
from it. No lighting problems or malfunctions of
any kind (that I recall). At first, I tried to
'hear it' by rolling down the window; only to
realize it made no audible sound for us - and
fright had me roll the window quickly back up.
I almost stuck my head out of the window but
'heard' a clear 'no!' and didn't. I'm quite
spiritual and do ask for divine guidance and
protection. maybe I had it that night, maybe not.
For some reason I think I was protected in that I
didn't stick my head out. That thing was so close
- 30 feet above us at the most!
It was about the same as a local billboard (and
around here maybe not quite that high!). I
couldn't make out the shape because of the 'fog'
(?) but when it 'stopped' - of course we
continued moving - away from it. The shell of the
craft appeared to be of non-color, possibly dark
grayish, possibly even 'reflective' of the
environment it was near. But it had a lack-luster
look some way......no gloss, no detectable paint,
no visible signs or numbers or anything. Just
highly unusual light-ability. It seemed to be
rotating (?) so fast that maybe it could have
been made to look 'invisible'. I watched it
through my rear-view mirror - comforting my
sister and telling her it was gone and she could
relax. It 'hovered' there in the hollow of the
overpass opening (the overpass just before our
exit/turnoff towards Baytown). It 'filled up' the
two lanes completely with its size - maybe 40 ft
Then, it suddenly ' shot off' towards the Gulf of
Mexico in yet another direction, due south. We
didn't discuss it. We were both pooped. We
commented we didn't know what it was. When we
arrived - evidently some time later, my niece
greeted us with; ' It's about time! What took
ya'll so long?' My memory here plays a number on
me because I remember looking at the craft
against the overpass and it wasn't dark out. But
it was dark, we'd left our parents before sunset
- maybe 6pm or so, because we didn't want to
drive at night - but then, I remember the fog,
and the darkness -?- We arrived at night time -
8:30 or 9:00 p.m. - this is most odd. This drive
is never more than 1.5 hrs. I didn't write down
the time, but my memory of day and night and
arriving late tells me perhaps we missed
something. Maybe the entire car was 'transported'
somehow. Maybe that's why we didn't see any of
the traffic or other businesses that are around
that area. I've mapped it, drove it many times
since. I know right where it came in and left us.
I'd love some concrete answers but fear what I
may learn. This experience haunts me sometimes.
My outlook is different now. Other connections
I'm becoming aware of are also pointing towards
possible abduction. Thanks for being there.
--Jill from Texas
AAER: Anyway, to give you some feedback: If you
were to undergo hypnosis, you would very likely
learn that what you are remembering is the
beginning and the ending of the abduction. The
two are joined together with the middle portion
missing from your memory.
The UFO you spotted on the horizon moments before
zipping over to your car was not there by
accident. It may have been there for the purpose
of healing or checking on your sister due to her
recent cancer diagnosis. Was she cured by the way
or did she go into remission after the episode?
Jill: There's more......my sister began having
extreme blood disorder the very next day, to the
point that we had to find blood donors to try to
compensate for her cells 'giving out'. I'm sure
that 'they' were aware of this, possibly caused
at least part of it from the extreme level of
stress from such an 'altercation'. My sister
'hung in there' for another few months, but left
us on January 6, 1997. Only 3 months after this
'experience'. I wish we'd discussed it, but all I
was able to do was ask her if she remembered the
object and she immediately turned towards me, and
'glazed over' saying 'y-y-e-e-e-s-s-s-s-' ! Her
response took me by such surprise that I simply
chose to 'leave it alone' for fear that it would
cause her only more pain.....I wish I'd pursued
it with her though. That same night, after she
died, I watched a 'ball of light'. I thought then
that it must have been her, but with all of this
starting to come together in my mind, I'm
beginning to wonder if it could have been 'them'.
My spiritual beliefs lead me to think it was her
or angels or some other celestial good thing. My
'experience' leads me to question whether they
could have been there waiting for her all the
while and were trying to tell me they got what
they came after -?- I guess maybe only time will
AAER: The missing portion of the abduction
probably begins with you seeing the UFO
immediately over the car. Watching your sister
"be taken" for about 13 miles was
probably right after you both were returned to
the car / or the car to the highway / as the case
may be. Since this was likely after the
abduction, she was probably in a state of shock
known as Post Traumatic Stress which was why she
was non-communicative with you. I like your
description of the holographic colors. Do you
remember seeing inside the bluish-white light?
Jill: No, more like watching them 'dance' around
on the craft but from the inside more so than the
outside. But also, there seem to be 'gaps' that
are starting to come together for me, and more
questions. This makes me uneasy. But I think I
might be opening up to face it in my memory. I
expressed a lot of this to another person a
couple of nights ago, and my Mother informed me
that I was 'screaming/moaning' during the night!
I never do that. All I can figure is that I must
have been 'reliving' something since I had that
on my mind and it was so late, I was tired, etc.
AAER: Was it a beam?
Jill: Not that I remember. But I can't figure out
the 'fog' stuff. Maybe it wasn't REALLY foggy
out? Maybe were in some kind of 'fog-like'
environment, or slightly different dimension?
This is the color commonly associated with the
transport mechanism, as in the old Star Trek
series, "Beam me up, Scotty."
I've never been a big fan, but saw a little of it
and remember the phrase. This was not like
anything I've yet to 'uncover'.
AAER: Also, while you think you did not stop the
car, clearly both of you and the car were stopped
somewhere in time or space. Your description of
the UFO having a reflective quality similar to
the environment has been a theory proposed by
researchers and non-researchers alike. That would
enable the UFO to visually acquire the qualities
of the surrounding environment. Also, your not
discussing it with your sister or family is
typical. Many people are unable to explain years
later why the subject was never discussed.
However, now that you are probing it, you may
begin having flashback memories or even dreams at
night of what really happened. Also, the balls of
light are known to communicate with people. After
all, who said intelligent life had to look like
Jill: OKAY! Thanks for this comment (per my
earlier comment above). I do feel like something
was definitely trying to communicate with me. I
told my Mom back then, when it first happened
(after my sister's death), that I believed she
must have been trying to tell me something. I
didn't get up, but the ball of light (like some
kind of energy - and definitely blueish,
swirling, mass of ???? but slightly transparent)
kept coming straight to me and then 'racing'
through the dining room, into the kitchen, and
back to me again for a long while (mostly from
about 2 - 4 a.m.). I couldn't tell many about
this, they'd think I was bonkers, but my parents
understood. my father has had 'unusuals' in his
lifetime. It struck me as odd, though, because my
sister left around 1 p.m. in the afternoon. I saw
nothing until during the night, more than 12
AAER: The bluish white balls of light sound like
plasma energy. They are magentic energy and have
the potential for incredible power. It is a form
of energy which occurs naturally on earth known
However, there is also a strong indication that
alien visitors may know how to create or
manipulate this energy for communication,
control, or travel purposes. Thus, it is not at
all unusual that you felt the balls of light were
communicating with you as a youngster and that
they ultimately guided your behavior into not
calling your parents for help. Many other people
have reported similar experiences. It is also
intriguing that your sister's passing may have
contributed to a ball of light which you saw 12
