two and a half years I got married; I moved out in the fall time. I was cleaning my Grandma's gutters out and decided to snap some pictures of her big beautiful yard with big trees changing all shots of fall colors. I got a picture of the same lime green orb thing I saw like a year or so ago with my naked eye. It was floating just above the roof of the house with a red mist around the green orb. People in my family say it's light from the sun, but
my mom, grandma, and I disagreed.|

We lived in a duplex on 35th Street just west of Drake University in Des Moines. In the year 2000 we had two daughters. One night my wife was working late, so I put the babies (about one or two months old) to bed in their cribs in the bedroom and walked into the dining room. Almost immediately I heard a female voice whisper into my right ear ''go check on the girls. '' It was so clear; it startled me, and I jumped a bit. I quickly turned around expecting to see someone, but no one was there. I walked back into the bedroom, and a cloth decoration that was nailed to the wall was over the face of one of the babies. She was struggling, kicking, and flapping her arms but did not have the arm control yet to take the thing off her face. She was apparently unable to cry. She would have suffocated if I had not gone in there after I had heard the mysterious whisper.
Before and after that we had experienced a strange buzzing sound off and on for years. It came from a spot on the floor in the living room, but there was nothing on top of or under the wood floor to explain it. There were no electrical wires or nails that could have been vibrating. It was coming from inside the wood. The buzzing would disappear for months at a time then reappear. We would hear it for several weeks, and it would stop again for a long while. Again it went on for years. We also heard footsteps upstairs when no one was home and footsteps in our unit when we were in the basement. Every now and then my wife and I would feel a chilling cold breeze go through one of us but not the other. There was never a rational explanation for the breeze since the windows were closed, and our furnace or AC was not turned on.
