JUNE 1978, FELLING, COUNTY DURHAM, IRELAND, SOMEONE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

British ufologist Jenny Randles reportedly indicated that in Felling, County Durham, Ireland, on June 1978, at 03:50 a.m., a person was awoken in her bed by a buzzing, high-pitched noise that vibrated through her body almost like an electric shock. Her head felt like it would explode.

Then an unseen figure held her wrist. The witness was paralyzed and could not move but could see that the figure had a fuzzy aura surrounding it. A bluish light was bathing the room. Apparently every time the being touched her, it created "a weird X-ray like effect": she could see into her arm, the bones, and blood vessels. It was as if the entity was studying her.

Suddenly the creature disappeared and she was again able to move.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Felling County, Durham, Ireland, on June 1978, at 0350 a.m., the witness was awoken in her bed by a buzzing, high-pitched noise. It vibrated through her body almost like an electric shock. Her head felt like it would explode. Then an unseen figure held her wrist. The witness was paralyzed and could not move but could see that the figure had a fuzzy aura surrounding it. A bluish light was bathing the room. Apparently every time the being touched her it created a weird X-ray like effect. She could see into her arm, the bones, and blood vessels. It was as if the entity was studying her. Suddenly the creature disappeared and she was again able to move.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Jenny Randles, Star Children."

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in June 1978 at 03:50 in Felling, County Durham, Ireland, "The witness was awoken in her bed by a buzzing, high-pitched noise. It vibrated through her body almost like an electric shock. Her head felt like it would explode. Then an unseen figure held her wrist. The witness was paralyzed and could not move but could see that the figure had a fuzzy aura surrounding it. A bluish light was bathing the room. Apparently every time the being touched her it created a weird X-ray like effect. She could see into her arm, the bones, and blood vessels. It was as if the entity was studying her. Suddenly the creature disappeared and she was again able to move."

The source indication is a broken link.

Points to consider:

With this report, everything screams the explanation to me: an hypnagogic hallucination episode with sleep paralysis.

Although hypnagogic experiences 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:
