When I was a very little girl (I don't know how old) I was going somewhere with my Mom one night, it was dark out and I was sitting in my car seat in the back and I remember watching shadows cross the seat in front of me, we had been driving for awhile I don't know how long, and then I saw Angels in a big open space on the side of the road it was light all around them and light came from them, they wore long gowns in colors I cannot describe because we don't have colors like them here on earth, they had long flowy gowns and long wavy hair, their faces were neither like a mans or woman's, they were all holding hands and skipping/running toward the road but although they were close to the road they never got to it, my Mother says that I said there was a rainbow but I don't remember, I looked at them as long as I could, although in reality it would only take a couple seconds to drive past but for me time slowed down almost to a stop.
I still remember it to this day even though I was just a baby or little kid.
I told my Mother about it but she didn't see anything.
