Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A ufologist noted that in Greenville, Texas, USA, in March 1965, at 11:00 p.m. woman had hauled her somnambulant husband to bed, and he was snoring when he hit the pillow, and shw went into bed too.

At one time, a being was in the hallway, the woman said that "he had on a type of helmet," clear or transparent. He "did not look like one of these weird beings" but seemed to look "like we do", with a ruddy complexion, a kind of grey spacesuit with zippers along the arms and legs, and he held "a round of glass" that the woman compared to a crystal ball.

The woman had the feeling that he was not going to do any harm, she felt this as "by mental telepathy", but she was not reassured at all, and tried to wake her happily snoaring husband up, without success.

It seems that when one of their children coughed in another bedroom, the "astronaut" quit looking his crytal ball and looked "that way", the woman then rose stood up thinking "Don't hurt my children!" She arrived at the door "and he disappeared. Just like that."

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Greenville, Texas, on March 1965, at 23:00, a woman had just helped haul her somnambulant husband to bed, and he was snoring when he hit the pillow. She crawled in beside him, kissed him goodnight, and rolled over on her side. There standing in her hallway was a being. "He had on a helmet type, clear type helmet. He did not look like one of these weird beings, he looked like we do, kind of I would say ruddy complexion. He had on a gray type spacesuit with zippers down the arms, zippers down the front, zippers down the legs, and he held a glass round - all I could think of was a crystal ball, in his hands. I had a feeling he wasn't going to hurt us. It was just - I don't know - like mental telepathy or something, because it was like he would say, ‘I m not going to hurt you. I m just here observing you.' Our galactic peeping Tom was not all that reassuring, and she was constantly reaching back and trying to get her happily snoring husband to wake up (which he never did). When her coughed in the other bedroom, the astronaut took his eyes from the glass ball and looked that way. That was too much, and maternal instincts took over, and she got up with "Don't hurt my children!" in her mind. She got as far as the door "and he disappeared. Just like that."

Albert Rosales indicates as source Michael D. Swords, "Grassroots UFOs", and wonders wether it was "a bedroom visitation by a time traveler?"

Points to consider:

The experience has all the traits of an hypnagogic hallucination episode. There is no UFO, the woman is in bed, a sound stimulus causing the hypnagogic state is the coughing of the child in the other bedroom, the entity is a human in space suit and not an extraterrestrial being, he disappears when the woman stands up finally awaken from the child cough.

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