'GREY' INTRUDERS Tell Experiencer, 'It's Fine, You Are Safe.'

An Oswego, NY reader relates their close encounter with 'Greys' who suddenly infiltrate the bedroom after observing a fireball in the sky. These beings offer comfort and are non-threatening.

I received the following account:

"Hello there, I was reading a story you published on 12/11/17 about "the thing on my bed" and I had a similar encounter around May or June a few years ago. I haven't told very many people because I don't want to seem crazy and the recollection of it frightens me to this day. I live in Oswego, NY which is a somewhat quiet college town on Lake Ontario. I remember it like it was yesterday and my heart sinks just thinking about it.

I was at my friend's house by the river looking off towards the east enjoying a cigar by a small bonfire we had started in his backyard. It was a really clear, warm night, and being out in the country a bit there was not much light pollution so you could really see the stars. Around 9 PM I noticed what appeared to be a fireball with a tail in the sky however this was no ordinary fireball, comet, or meteor. This fireball seemed alive. It was bright green in color and was moving in an erratic pattern (it did a few loops and "hopped") heading from the north (we have a nuclear plant on the lake and that seemed to be where it was coming from) to the south before disappearing in the tree line across the river. The sighting only lasted about 10 seconds. I sat there in awe for about 5 minutes, my friend was inside and had missed it but he saw the look on my face, and when I told him what I saw he believed it. I thought that would be the end of it however little did I know I would get a much closer encounter.

Fast forward about two weeks, and once again it was nighttime. I was at my parent's house about a mile and a half away from my friend's house where I had the sighting. It was once again nighttime, I was in bed and it had to be about 4 or 5 in the morning. I felt/saw a green flash of light through my closed eyelids, almost like someone had taken a bright flashlight put a green filter on it and was shining it directly into my eyelids. I tried to open my eyes but it felt like they were glued shut, I also felt pressure on all of my limbs as if I was being held down by some sort of force.

After a few seconds of panic, my eyes finally opened to my dimly moonlit room and I wish they hadn't. I was on my twin-sized mattress which was on my bedroom floor (my bedroom is about 10'x12') and these beings were there. I thought I was dreaming so I blinked a few times and was able to tilt my head a little to the left and right. The beings were still there. These beings were grey in appearance and were short little things probably knee-high at most. They did not appear to be wearing clothes, they were just light grey and had very smooth skin. They had large black eyes, thin limbs, were bald, and had oversized heads with small potbellies. All of them seemed to be hunched over in appearance and were all identical. Their faces showed no menace, they were more or less vacantly staring at me while occasionally looking at one another seemingly non-verbally communicating back and forth. There was one on each of my limbs, one holding my head, one standing by my door seemingly as a "lookout," one standing bedside to my right, and one in front of the closet off to the right for a total of 8.

I tried to move, to struggle, anything but it was as if their hands had a numbing effect on my body. My brain said, "FIGHT, STRUGGLE, DO SOMETHING!" However, despite my best efforts I could do nothing but lay there at their mercy. It seems as if by holding me they were able to block my brain's signals to move. I was finally able to whisper "Please stop, go away, leave me alone." The one standing off to my right seemed to sense my fear or understand me because he reached over and stroked my face and spoke in a sort of whispering raspy elderly man's voice saying "It's fine, you are safe."

After saying this, one by one the grey beings hopped off me and scampered over to where the one being was standing by my closet and each seemed to teleport in a quiet, quick flash (no light) while the one who spoke to me kept his hand on me, stroking my head as if to reassure my safety but keep me paralyzed still. The one standing by the door who I assumed to be the "lookout" then went to the spot by my closet and it too vanished along with the one standing next to my closet. The one standing bedside said one last time "Rest, you're safe" then patted me, sort of trotted over to my closet like the rest, looked back at me, nodded then vanished. I sort of passed out then woke back up in a rush with full function of my body in a cold sweat.

I rushed over to my light switch turned on the lights and just sat there horrified at what had happened. I just sat there shaking my head, "it had to be a dream" I thought. I looked down at my arms and legs and was horrified. I could see faint red marks where the beings had been holding me. My room had this weird smell about it and there was a small seemingly bleached yellowish spot about the size of an M&M on my blue carpet where I saw the beings teleport from by my closet area. That spot had not been there before.

To this day I still get a nervous feeling when I go to sleep and usually cover that area up with a blanket or something in hopes that these visitors don't come back. A part of me also sort of wishes they would come back in a less intrusive way so I could find out what they did to me and why." T

Welcome to Phantoms & Monsters 'Personal Reports' - cryptid & unexplained accounts directly from the archives of Phantoms & Monsters, and the Phantoms & Monster Fortean Research team. Narrated by Lon Strickler. Join us in the chat, discuss, and ask me questions about the accounts.

Featured in this edition:

Many paranormal enthusiasts refer to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania as the most haunted town in the world. On July 1-3, 1863, the small farming community witnessed some of the worst death & destruction ever seen on the North American continent. Over 165 thousand men, from both armies, took part in the battle, with roughly one-third becoming casualties. More than seven thousand men died in the fighting, and a further 33 thousand were wounded. The carnage left an indelible mark on the locale & history that has endured for 160 years.

But Gettysburg is more than just a memorial to the people involved in that tragedy. It has become a drawing card for the unexplained and a gathering spot for supernatural energy that transcends beyond death. Modern life adds to the mystery of the location, be it cryptids, curses, unidentified aerial phenomena, or personal experiences.

So relax, unlock your mind, and begin to perceive what I'm about to communicate to you. I will present the reports and incidents in detail and answer all questions from the chat room.
