Experience description:  

Let me tell you about my Uncle...I sent an article in Newsday about this story and they printed it...

I couldn't sleep one night and I woke up around 1 a.m.  I went downstairs to the kitchen to make some coffee.  As I was drinking my coffee, I stepped into the porch to look outside.  I had big windows and I was looking at the night sky.  I turned around to head back in the kitchen when I noticed a blue light on the wall by my stairs that led to the bedrooms. 

Immediately, I thought one of my sons was fooling around and took a flashlight and put it under his blanket and reflected it onto the wall.  So I called out their names, but no one answered.  I climbed about 4 steps of the stairs and peeked into their bedrooms.  All three of my children were sound asleep. 

I was standing inches away from the wall with the blue light.  It was about two feet in diameter.  I put my hand in front of it to see if there was a shadow...There wasn't any...Then the light started to shrink in perfect form until it disappeared.  It only took seconds when then a thought came to me that it was my Uncle Thomas who was passing through to see my kids before crossing over...It was about 1:30 - 1:45 a.m.  I checked on the kids and went to sleep.....In the morning I called my mom who told me that my uncle passed away during the night.  I already knew that...
