Have you ever seen something or someone you just couldn’t explain? It seems the people of Chicago are experiencing something quite ‘surreal.’

According to the ChicagoTribune, there have been an awful lot of ‘Mothman’ sightings in recent times. They say that some people believe it looks like a bat or owl where-as the rest claim it looks more man-like. Perhaps even a man in a winged suit of some kind. Reports seem to note that the creature has glowing red eyes and that in the presence of this interesting beast they feel a deep sense of overwhelming dread.

Paranormal researcher Lon Strickler of Pennsylvania told the ChicagoTribune over the phone that he believed these people were in-fact seeing something. He says that because the descriptions do not all quite match there could be at least two or more different ‘creatures’ present. There have allegedly been around 50 something sightings of this Mothman just in 2017 alone.

One of those being a man named John Amitrano who worked security at a popular hangout. He told VICE that he saw a flying plane and then something moving somewhat awkwardly underneath that plane. He claims it did not look much like a bat and seemed to look more like a pterodactyl. He said “I know what birds and what bats look like. This thing didn’t have any feathers or fur, and it didn’t fly like anything I’ve ever seen.” This creature he saw seemed to have a human-like shape and flew in a strange swooping motion up and down.

The ChicagoReader, a local news source reported that most of these Mothman spottings have occurred near Lake Michigan. That being said, whether you believe there is an actual Mothman out there or not, if there is he or she has not been hurting anyone that we know of. Some people believe there has to be a logical explanation for these sightings and others are completely convinced that the Mothman does exist. What do you think?
