Real Mothman Sightings - Recent Mothman Sightings

In this article we will be taking a look at the real Mothman sightings that have occurred AFTER the famous Point Pleasant incident in West Virginia, in 1966.

Many visitors to this site end up looking for information on that famous report…but few of them realize that the Mothman sightings continued…all over the world!


The Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine

Back in 1986 a group of locals who lived (and worked) around a nuclear power plant in Ukraine reported incidents linked to a large winged humanoid creature with piercing red eyes.

These locals also complained about terrible nightmares and ‘silent’ phone calls after they had come face to face with the strange entity.

The sightings seemed to escalate until the 26th of April that year…when reactor number 4 at the plant suffered a catastrophic steam explosion.

This resulted in the worst nuclear accident in history – the Chernobyl disaster.

At first the government, and the locals, thought that the internal fire was nothing more than a small electrical disturbance. They were ordered to help the rescue effort and they obliged willingly.

The locals and the authority workers had no idea that their rescue efforts were actually contributing to their own end – they were being poisoned by radiation as they worked…

Within a fortnight of this nuclear incident – most of the people involved in the cleanup were dead.

Numerous deathbed reports described a headless bird like creature with a 20 foot wingspan, flying above them as they tried to rescue the doomed nuclear plant. They firmly believed that this entity was trying to warn them of their fate – trying desperately to lead them away from the radiation.


The Freiburg Shrieker

On September the 10th, 1978, a team of miners were getting ready for work in an area of Germany. As they approached the mouth of the cave into the mine, their path was obstructed by a tall man in a dark trench coat.

They approached the dark character to ask why he was blocking their route to work…and realized he was not wearing a trench coat…and he was not a regular man!

The figure was an entity with large wings pinned to his sides.

The miners just stood their – rooted to the spot in fear.

Without warning, the winged entity let out a piercing shriek that tore at the ears of the mine workers. They dropped their equipment and ran terrified into the night.

About an hour after this incident was reported, the mine the group were due to work in, collapsed.

Was this dark stranger sent to warn the miners of the impending disaster in the mine?

Many believe this to be the case.

This dark figure later became known as the Freiburg Shrieker.


2006 – Wisconsin

One dark night in Wisconsin, 2006, a Cherokee man and his son were making a car journey home when they suddenly had to slam on the breaks to avoid hitting a figure in the middle of the road.

But, this figure wasn’t actually standing on the road…it was hovering a couple of feet above the tarmac!

Both father and son were scared, very scared! They decided to make a break for it and floored the car off into the distance…

But the strange creature followed them…

They couldn’t outrun it in the car – at one point it was able to hover backwards right in front of their windshield. They just kept on flooring the car, staring into the hovering creatures red eyes.

Eventually the creature broke off from it’s pursuit, and the father and son headed straight for the local police station.

In his report, the father stated that:

“The first thing I saw were the eyes and what I thought maybe were teeth. It had a 14 foot wingspan at least, it was huge, It almost covered half the road. It was close enough for me to reach out and touch it, it almost hit the windshield. It had a white mouth, the eyes were the size of reflectors. The body was attached to the wings. It had grey and brown hair, but not too much hair, it was more fleshy, kind of like a bat. That’s why I called it a man bat because it looked like a cross between a man and a bat.”


The Japanese Earthquake

Most of you will remember the 9.0 earthquake that hit Japan back in 2011, and the 15 meter tsunami that followed…

After this disaster, the internet was flooded with Japanese reports stating that a ‘winged creature’ had flown through the country in the hours leading up to this horrific natural disaster.

Was this yet another sighting of the Mothman?

Was he once again on a crusade to warn the Japanese people about the incoming disaster?

The Chicago Mothman

The Chicago Mothman

Over the last few weeks I have been gathering updated information on the ‘Mothman’ Indrid Cold. During this process I stumbled across numerous (relatively recent) reports on the Chicago Mothman…

Another article was born…


The Photo

In August of 2011 a couple returned to Chicago, the city where they once lived, to complete some business. After their work was done, they decided to reminisce and visit their old neighborhood.

When they were driving past their old ‘hunting grounds’ the wife suddenly remembered about a giant statue of a native American nearby. She convinced her husband to take a short drive to see if the statue still stood – she wanted to take a quick photo of it to show their friends back home.

A strange bat-like object flying above the statue

They eventually located the impressive statue and managed to take a few angled snaps of it.

When they returned home to sharpen up the pictures they were surprised to see a strange bat-like object flying above the statue – they did not notice it when they were taking the photographs.

At first they thought it was some species of a bird but they quickly realized that it was way too big – what was it?


Two Red Eyes

A couple of days after the couple’s photo was taken, two female students in the Miller Park area were getting ready to go out for the evening when they saw a pair of red eyes glaring at them through the window.

The girl’s apartment was actually on the third floor so they had no idea how the creature behind these eyes was suspending itself – they left the apartment screaming in fear and eventually a gathering of concerned residents grouped around them downstairs.

Two Red Eyes

Once they had managed to calm the girls down they were able to listen to their story involving the red eyes outside their window.

The residents searched the outside of the building but there was no sign of this red-eyed intruder.

Several hours after this incident, another group of students in the area came face to face with a seven foot tall ‘creature’ – believed to be the same creature that was perched outside the girl’s window.

They later described it to be dark gray, or black with deep red eyes – it stood there staring at them for a matter of seconds before flying off into the night sky.


The Humanoid Bat-Like Creature

In September of the same year (2011), a mass sighting was reported when a humanoid bat-like creature was spotted in Chicago flying about 12 feet above the ground.

This sighting seemed to spark a tidal wave of similar sightings throughout the city leading up to the winter months.
