I was awakened by a humming mechanical sound and turned to see what it was. there was a bright white light shining in my window so i got up and peeked through the blinds and that is when i saw an et standing there next to the window. he was grey in color, had a large head and large eyes, small nose, small mouth and small ears. i was in shock and just stared, not believing what i was looking at. all i could think of was that one of my neighbors said he saw an et a few years ago and i wondered if it was the same one. he just stood there staring at me for about a minute, then backed up walking backwards and disappeared into the light. i saw a metallic grey object in a somewhat disk shape with bright white lights that nearly made it impossible to see the craft. it was hovering at approximately 80' off the ground. it only made a low humming sound - then it took off to the ne at a high rate of speed which was so fast that i couldn't guess what the mph was. here is the odd part - i completely forgot about the incident until i was eating breakfast the next morning and it all came back to me. i'd like to know what is going on in this part of independence and especially on this block where a lot of strange stuff has been going on for years. sorry i did not think to get video.
