Thomas P's Experience

Experience description:   

I was sitting in the chair facing my Dad and holding his hand {I had been for sometime] when my sisters changed positions. My youngest sister sat next to me and very shortly afterwards a flash of light just appeared, very bright but not blinding about a meter above his head and just below the ceiling, I'm known to be a COOL character however my instant response was quote "       What the f...k was that" This happened directly in front of us and

y sister Jean's reply was " I don't know what was it" The centre of this was what I saw clearly, this was roundish/oval shaped and kind of crystal like, clear however not see-through, like one of the small jelly-fish found on the beach. the closest thing to compare it to would be a camera flash in your face however that would kind of be blinding, this wasn't. The light was kind of clear, white and bright. and it lasted about 1.5 seconds and the light would have been around 1 meter across.
