When I was just 17 years old, my boyfriend and I went to a place called Rio-Linda Park. It was an eerie looking place attached to a Jr high school and it had a little stream running through it along with picnic benches and a baseball park. It was eerie because it was in the town of Rio-Linda and yet it seemed like it was no where near a town, it had beautiful trees and natural landscaping, but it had a lonely feel about it.
One night my boyfriend and I went there on a date, he thought it would be romantic to go there and look at the moon and listen to the trees sigh in the breeze, and the stream babble. When we arrived, I suggested that we go for a walk, out into the field that was across one of the two bridges, it was a brilliant night, the moon was full, and I really wanted to enjoy it.
He agreed, we started across the last bridge when all of a sudden he said looking up in to the sky what’s that?� I looked up and I saw a glowing ball behind some clouds that had appeared. We kept looking at it for awhile when all of a sudden the most brilliant beautiful moon beam came out from the cloud that was covering the ball. I gasped because it was so beautiful, but instead of approaching quickly like a moon beam does, this one came very slowly, it was bizarre how slow it came down from the ball of light.
As it was approaching us, my boyfriend ran back across the bridge and stopped and started to call me to come on and run. I ignored him because I had never had such an experience in my life and I wanted to see it through to the end. I think I was actually mesmerized by the beautiful light, it was fascinating, it had every color of the rainbow in the beam and then some.� It continued to approach, ever so slowly until it finally came to my eyes and it stopped when it hit my eyes. My boyfriend was watching this from a safe distance and he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.� After the beam struck my face, it stopped and then ever so slowly started to go back up into the ball of light behind the clouds until it finally disappeared.
I have never told this story to anyone, I didn’t want them to think I was a nut job. But so help me god it is all true.� The boyfriend, when it finally disappeared, started screaming for me to come on, and that was when I came to my senses and started to run like hell. I was terrified after it was over, but during it I had this sense of well being that I cant explain.
