I am really hoping that this will reach someone who has had this same experience!
When I was a kid, maybe 8 or 9, I had a spend-the-night at my next door neighbor's house. They had bunkbeds and I was sleeping on the bottom bunk. I woke up in the middle of the night and sat straight up in bed suddenly. There at the foot of the bed, like almost right above my feet, was a huge "fireball." It took up the entire space between the bed I was on and the bed above me, but I could see it's edges.. if that makes sense.
It rushed at me, I felt myself fall back in the bed, and then it was morning. 😅
Has anyone ever experienced or heard of anytihng like this?
