Terror beset an Apple Valley couple late one night last month when an unidentified flying object appeared outside their bedroom window.
According to testimony provided by the wife, light from the silent, low-flying object began shining into the bedroom just after 1 a.m. Saturday, April 27.
“I was almost asleep when I noticed a bright light shining on me through my closed eyes,” the wife reported on the witness database of the Mutual UFO Network, a Denver-based nonprofit which seeks to scientifically resolve the enigma of UFOs.
“I opened my eyes, woke my husband and we watched a silent object that didn’t seem very far away move south across the sky.
“The object seemed to be at the same level as us. It kept its beam of light facing our bedroom window for about 10 seconds … It just kept moving south until it was out of our view.”
The wife reported she did not get out of bed to watch the object’s departure because she was “paralyzed with fear.”
“My husband walked around the house a little just to check to make sure the doors were locked,” she stated.
The Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, compiles reports of such incidents and often conducts follow-up investigations with the witnesses, whose identities are not publicly released.
The Apple Valley Police Department received no reports of anomalous aerial phenomena in the early hours of April 27, police Capt. Michael Marben said.
Minnesota had four reported UFO sightings in April, according to coverage of the recent Apple Valley incident at the news and entertainment website Examiner.com.
“Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade,” the Examiner.com report notes.
