My wife and I were sleeping in our bedroom and around 2:45am I was suddenly woken up. I was facing a closed window in our room and the window has a brown shade over it. However, I noticed a red ball of light on the inside that quickly passed through the shade and window and disappeared, either moving away or dissolving on the outside of our house.I just read a ton about ball lightning, but I doubt ball lightning inspects people or their houses when people are sleeping. It sounds more like a monitoring tool of some sort. I remembered watching UFO reports about balls of red light floating over houses and fields. And I wonder if this is one of them. Anyone else experience something like this? I can only hope that if it is a monitoring tool, that we didn't show any reason for further interest in us! Haven't been able to get back to sleep yet for the past hour and a half.
