My girlfriend reminded me of an event that happened last fall I believe and I had completely forgotten about it and I was wondering if anyone else may have experienced anything similar.
I was on my computer with my headphones and my girlfriend had laid down to sleep in the other room. I kept hearing a crackling snapping sound over the headphones but ignored it the first 2-3 times. I finally pulled off the headphones to investigate and it sounded very much like a loose power line popping and it was coming from the bedroom. I hurriedly opened the door to find my girlfriend upright in bed and the dog staring at the wall. I asked if she heard anything like an electrical noise. She said she not only heard it but saw it. She further explained that there was a lot of strobe-like activity outside the window and the top portion of a translucent torso with arms outstretched coming through the wall but when I came through the door she said it snapped back instantly. The dog is usually frightened of his own shadow but instead of barking he was just staring at whatever this oddity was but his heart rate was up.
So, I have no idea what we all experienced but it was definitely unusual. I wish I had seen this human shape though just to confirm my girlfriends story and not write it off as something that she saw coming out of a dream state. The electrical noises I can confirm though but it ceased for the rest of the night.
