    Between November 15, 1966 and December 15, 1967 a string of incredible, but disturbing, sightings took place in the Point Pleasant area of West Virginia of a “large flying man with ten foot wings” known today as The Mothman.


    On November 12, 1966, five men were digging a grave at a cemetery near Clendenin, West Virginia when all of a sudden they saw a man like figure fly low from the trees over their heads. This is cited as the first known sighting of what has become known today as the Mothman.

    Just 3 days after this, on November 15, 1966, two young couples from Point Pleasant, Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette, saw a large white creature whose eyes “glowed red” when the car headlights picked it up. The description they gave the police was a “large flying man with ten-foot wings, following their car while they were driving in the site of a former World War II munitions plant.

    During the next few days, many people reported eerily similar sightings. This included two fireman who said it was a “large bird with red eyes”. A contractor named Newell Partridge who also spotted the creature claimed when he shone a flashlight at the creature its eyes glowed “like bicycle reflectors”, and blamed the disappearance of his German Shepherd dog on the creature.

    The most significant sightings have all taken place in the Point Pleasant area of West Virginia. The first newspaper report was published in the Point Pleasant Register dated November 16, 1966, titled “Couples See Man-Sized Bird … Creature … Something”.

    The Mothman became better well known mostly after John Keel wrote his 1975 book The Mothman Prophecies, which documents and claims that there were real supernatural events related to the sightings, and a connection to the collapse of the Silver Bridge. A film in 2002, also entitled The Mothman Prophecies, starring Richard Gere, was actually based on John Keel’s book.

    Wildlife biologist Dr. Robert L. Smith has explained that the sightings are probably the sandhill crane, which is a large American crane with a seven-foot wingspan featuring circles of reddish coloring around the eyes. He claims the bird probably wandered into the area which is not common.

    On December 15, 1967, was the last sighting of the Mothman. People claimed to have seen the creature on the Silver Bridge just before it collapsed which resulted in the death of 46 people. Researchers believe that this was undoubtedly connected to the Mothman. Among the theories surrounding the event include the possibility that the Mothman was responsible for the collapse and others that it was targeted by the government, or shadow government, for execution and the loss of life was considered acceptable.

    John Keel, the New York writer, interviewed over 100 individuals that had witnessed The Mothman from November 1966 to November 1967. They also told him about the infamous Men in Black visiting them regarding the creature. Could the Mothman have been one of many alien like creatures, or living nephilim, that live among us which stopped following the rules and was executed as a result?
