SUMMER 1978, LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS, USA, SOMEONE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A story probably found on the web and catalogued by Albert Rosales, apparently anonymous, says that near Little Rock, Arkansas, USA, on Summer 1978, at 11:00 p.m., the witness was getting ready to go to sleep when suddenly everything became very quiet.

He opened his eyes to look outside the window when he saw three - undescribed - creatures standing there.

The next thing he remembered was a floating sensation and some sort of strange device resembling a chronometer. He then found himself back in bed and looking out the same window to see a brilliant silver sphere floating silently outside.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Little Rock, Arkansas, on Summer 1978, at 2300, the witness was getting ready to go to sleep when suddenly everything became very quiet. He opened his eyes to look outside the window when he saw three (undescribed) creatures standing there. The next thing he remembered was a floating sensation and some sort of strange device resembling a chronometer. He then found himself back in bed and looking out the same window to see a brilliant silver sphere floating silently outside.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Themestream."

Points to consider:

The story shows the features of a typical hypnagogic hallucination.

I provide a few references among dozens about the topic of hypnagogic hallucination and sleep paralysis:
