APRIL 1978, MOSCOW, MOSCOW, RUSSIA, A WOMAN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

"UFOzone" in Russia reporttedly told that in Moscow, Russia, on April 1978, late in the evening, a woman was lying on her couch reading a book. After finishing reading, she attempted to fall asleep.

Suddenly, she felt some pressure on her entire body, she was under the impression that some "load" had been dropped on her body.

Perturbed, she looked around and saw a deep heavy fog entering the opened window. Suddenly from within the fog two very tall figures appeared, these were about 2.5-2.8 meters in height, dressed in luminous clothing with round and also luminous helmets.

The figures approached the woman and leaned over her. At this point she heard some unintelligible speech.

She wanted to move and turned away from them, but she was unable to move, she was totally paralyzed. She begged with them that it was getting heavy and that she was suffering. In an instant, both figures disappeared the same way they had appeared, first into the fog, which then floated out the opened window. She was immediately able to move again.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Moscow, Russia, on April 1978, late in the evening, a woman was lying on her couch reading a book and after finishing reading the book she attempted to fall asleep. Suddenly she felt some pressure on her entire body, she was under the impression that some "load" had been dropped on her body. Perturbed, she looked around and saw a deep heavy fog entering the opened window. Suddenly from within the fog two very tall figures appeared, these were about 2.5-2.8 meters in height, dressed in luminous clothing with round and also luminous helmets. The figures approached the woman and leaned over her. At this point she heard some unintelligible speech. She wanted to move and turned away from them, but she was unable to move, she was totally paralyzed. She begged with them that it was getting heavy and that she was suffering. In an instant both figures disappeared the same way they had appeared, first into the fog, which then floated out the opened window. She was immediately able to move again.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "UFOZONE Russia."

Points to consider:

Although hypnagogic experiences and sleep paralysis are now quite understood in the medical literature on non-pathological sleep disorders and sleep phenomena, although there are knowledgeable ufologists who understand this phenomenon, many other ufologists are still unable to identify such causes when they apply and still believe such experiences are alien encounters or alien abductions.

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