END OCTOBER 1975, AMERICAN FALLS, IDAHO, USA, A WOMAN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

CUFOS is said to have in their file a case in American Falls, Idaho, on late October 1975, at 06:25 a.m., the witness had been lying in bed with her husband who was asleep when she heard noises in the living room.

Moments later a short figure stood at the bedroom door. It was described as four-foot tall, humanoid, with large pointed ears, normal eyes and nose and completely covered with short hair.

It looked puzzled and was breathing very heavy; at times making "gurgling" noises.

The witness closed her eyes then opened them again to find the figure standing by the bed staring at her. The witness panicked and attempted to find her husband's gun, who remained sleeping.

The creature then walked to the mirror looked at itself, scratched his chin and walked out of the bedroom. The witness remained in bed and did not see how the creature left the house.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that American Falls, Idaho, on late October 1975, at 06:25 a.m., the witness had been lying in bed with her husband who was asleep when she heard noises in the living room.

Moments later a short figure stood at the bedroom door. It was described as four-foot tall, humanoid, with large pointed ears, normal eyes and nose and completely covered with short hair.

It looked puzzled and was breathing very heavy; at times making "gurgling" noises.

The witness closed her eyes then opened them again to find the figure standing by the bed staring at her. The witness panicked and attempted to find her husband's gun, who remained sleeping.

The creature then walked to the mirror looked at itself, scratched his chin and walked out of the bedroom. The witness remained in bed and did not see how the creature left the house.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Cufos Reports.

Points to consider:

These events in bedroom in the sleep during the night with sounds as starting point could be an ordinary case of hypnagogic hallucination. The lack of data, the absence of a detailed investigation report, in any case, do not allow to reject this explanation.

I have a considerable asset to realize how such experiences, although not "real", are much more impressive than a "simple dream": it happened to me. It so happens that in this report, there are several indicators pointing towards this explanation: the reference to the state of semi-lethargy in which the witness was during the experience, the incapacity to speak, move, shout, the absence of corroborating observation by third parties, the absence of physical trace, the triggering stimuli such as noises or light outside. On the other end, nothing solid comes to demonstrate firmly that such an explanation is the sure explanation, but as obviously it was not even considered, the case becomes unfortunately unfit as example supporting some particular thesis about UFOs or their occupants.

I provide a few references among dozens about the topic of hypnagogic hallucination and sleep paralysis:
