One night in 1994, I woke up and heard noise on the roof. I thought that maybe the teenage boys of our neighbor were running on the roof again, maybe they were checking a water leak on their roof (our houses were joined), but then again it was freezing too hard for a leak. The next morning our neighbor told us that in the middle of the night, after having read a book, he did not fall asleep immediately, but was slumbering. Then he heard sound, music woven into music, that he described as the rustling of metal feathers. The sound moved around him, and he felt the presence of a being he described as unearthly, ethereal. The being moved around him and showed signs of curiosity. With its hand it touched our neighbor’s cheek, neck and shoulders. It tried to implant into his mind the idea of a cheap electronic toy. He was very nervous, but the being did not feel malevolent.
There might be a connection with what my wife and I experienced the week before. It had snowed a lot, and we had removed the snow from our roof. In the evening, while in bed but not asleep yet, we heard a sudden, very loud but soft impact on the roof (our bedroom is under the roof). It was really loud and it startled us. It happened two more times that evening, and one time at six o’clock in the morning. We could not find any reasonable explanation for it. The closest thing I could compare it to, was that a big ball of snow had fallen on the roof from very high up. In the morning I checked the roof but there was no trace of anything.
