When I was a kid, my family and I went to visit a relative’s home on Christmas Eve to open presents. This was in West Virginia, in the late 2000’s I think, and I remember it being dark at the time. On the way to our destination we were driving past a natural clearing between two mountains that was by the roadside. This spot was also near a railroad crossing. We saw three large red floating lights and at first thought it was a new cell tower. Then the lights began moving ever so slightly and we saw that they weren’t attached it anything.

On a night in late September of 2009, possibly the 28th, a woman named Carly was on the front porch of her house near the Lunken Airport in Cincinnati, Ohio. She was reportedly hanging early Halloween decorations when she suddenly got the eerie sense that she was being watched.

The conversation began when he noticed the Mothman books I was reading in the school library. Brandon said that what he saw was similar to the Mothman in appearance.
