4th Sighting in Chicago: 'Giant Bat' Over Lake Michigan / Montrose Beach


Chicago, Il 2017-04-15: I was out on the lake with my husband and a two other couples celebrating a friend's birthday. We were about 2 miles out on the lake, just off of Montrose at about 10pm. We were enjoying ourselves when I happen to look up and saw what looked like a giant bat, and not like a Fox Bat (which I looked up and saw was the biggest bat). This bat was as tall as my husband who is 6'4 or even bigger. It was solid black with eyes that seem to reflect the moonlight. This bat was blacker than the surrounding night sky and was perfectly silhouetted against the moonlit sky. This bat circled the boat three times in complete silence before heading off towards Montrose. It quickly blended into the night sky and was gone in seconds.

About five minutes after seeing this bat we saw a bright green object traveling north to south at the horizon. It was not a plane as it was brilliant green and was moving slowly across the horizon. If I had to estimate, it was about 2 miles from our position.

After the object was out of sight, we sat there looking around in stunned silence. I began feeling this overwhelming sensation of dread and told my husband that I felt that it was prudent that we get off the water as quickly as possible.Ii tried to get a picture of the thing as it circled our boat, but all I got was black. - MUFON

NOTE: Any related sightings / encounter reports (flying humanoids / cryptid...ex. Mothman, Owlman, etc.), in or around the Chicago metro area, are welcomed. Please forward to lonstrickler@phantomsandmonsters.com. Thanks...Lon


UPDATE: I just wanted to add this report that was posted a few hours ago. I'm not sure if there is any relationship to the previous sightings:

Chicago, IL - 2017-04-17: I was working my shift at O'Hare Airport. I was recording a plane because it had my name across it and then I noticed something flying above the plane in a hovering manner, so I zoomed in on the flying object. It looked like an orb but the way it was flying was abnormal for anything in the vicinity of the airport. I've worked there for 3 years and have taken many videos and pictures of planes and the sky and never have seen anything like it. I would have kept recording but I had to assist a passenger and had to stop recording. I was recording through a window but the window was clear so it is not a shadow of anything and they say the way it is flying it looks as it is in the sky doing its own thing. I've asked a lot of pilots for their opinion and they said it looks 'unexplained.' When I went back to record more it was gone. - MUFON

The Weird Girl at the Playground


Michael Judd told Dave Schrader (of Beyond the Darkness) an encounter he had in 1991 in north St. Louis:

“It was the summer of 1991. My friend and I, we were trying to escape his girlfriend because she was high maintenance and we had three or four places we could go and hide from her. So we went to a park that backs up to a hundred acres of a wildlife area and then, on the other side of that, is a highway, then, just basically, north St. Louis metropolis type area.

He and I go up there and we're hanging out and talking to each other and he's complaining about his girlfriend. All of a sudden, we see his girlfriend drive into the parking area, so we hit the deck. We're hiding and she pulls ahead and she looks for us but she's not gonna get out of the car and she pulls away. When we get back up, we notice that now there is a girl in this playground area with us. And we both look at her and we look at each other and we're both like, 'That's kinda weird, she wasn't there before.' (Dave Schrader asks how old she was) At this time, it's hard to tell because it's 11 o'clock at night, we just know it's female. So we watch her for a little bit and we're like, this chick is weird.

So she walks over and sits down on the swing-set, which had three swings. She takes the middle one. So we're like, alright, let's go check this out. So we walk over and she's sitting there, and she's leaning forward and she's hanging on the chains with her head down and she had long hair and it was covering her face. So he walks over, he would have been on her right side, I would have been on her left. At first we were just like, 'What the hell are you doing here?' She said, 'Oh, I was just out for a walk and this is where I wound up.' 'Which direction did you come from?' 'Well,' she goes, 'I came out of the trees.' I was like, 'You were wandering around in the woods at 11 o'clock at night?' She goes, 'Nah, I didn't pass through a bunch of woods, I just came out from there.' I thought, you couldn’t have just come out from there, you had to have passed through the woods. My friend goes, 'Alright, where you from?' She goes, Well, 'I'm from Ferguson.' I'm like, 'Ferguson is five miles away from here and you would have had to cross a major highway.' She goes, 'No, I didn't cross a highway.' I was like, you know, I leaned back and looked at my friend and was like, 'This chick is whack.' So, all of a sudden, he's like, 'So, you got a boyfriend?' She's like, 'Yeah, yeah, he's pretty cool. He's got a brand new TA.' I was like, 'TA?' I remembered it was what people used to call a Trans Am. I was like, 'A brand new TA? Does he think he's Burt Reynolds?' She goes, 'Yeah, it's brown, just like his is. It's new, it's really cool and fast.' I looked at my friend and was like, 'They don't make brown Trans Ams anymore.' Finally she's just sitting here and she goes, 'I gotta go.' She stands up and walks around the swing-set, right in front of me, and I'm trying to see her face. Never could see it. Never once got a look at her face. And she never once looked either one of us in the eye. And she walks around the swing-set and goes up to the woods and there's a chain-link fence that somebody had cut, so you could go into the woods. And as soon as she hit that fence, she was gone. And I mean like she just went into a whole other world, teleported, poof, gone!”

Daily 2 Cents: The Night Hillsborough, NH Was Invaded! -- Strange Apparition in the Bay of Quinte -- Implant 'Activated' After Abduction


The Night Hillsborough, NH Was Invaded!

This incident occurred in Hillsborough, NH, when I was attending over-night summer camp when I was about 10 years. It would have been in July or August of 1978 or 1979.

One night, in the middle of the night, I awoke quite alert for no apparent reason. It was pitch black in and outside of the cabin. Besides feeling very alert, not sleepy at all, I felt an instinctive fear.

Then I heard two things "talking" outside the cabin. I would say they were very close, maybe 5 or 10 feet away. They were not human beings because the sounds they were making were not human sounds. On the other hand they were not animals because they were definitely communicating in an intelligent way, there was no mistaking it - questioning and answering. You need to read to the end of my entry to understand why I am reporting this as an ET encounter.

I don't think at the time I had seen any UFO movies. My initial response was a primal fear of the unknown.

After several minutes of laying on my back paralyzed by fear, I gathered my wits and decided to climb up to the top bunk and wake up my best friend.

As slowly and quietly as I could, I slipped out of my sleeping bag and climbed up the ladder to his bed. Then, I gently nudged him at the same time whispering in a hushed whisper, "John, wake up, "shhhhh" just listen".

He woke up, he listened, and he heard them too.

We just listened, frozen, for what was probably only a half a minute more. Then one of us whispered something to the other and the voices outside went silent.

John and I froze again and were silent.

We waited for several minutes, listening for them, wondering if they were still there. Finally, after some time, reassured that they had probably left, we started whispering to each other again. Though we did not use the words at the time, the conversation was along the lines of 'WTF????' We were freaked out.

It took another half hour before I was comfortable enough to climb back down to my bed and go back to sleep.

In the morning we reported the incident to our counselor. he told us it was probably porcupines. Of course we knew it was not a porcupine or any animal, but you can imagine he did not pay any attention to us.

The clincher to this incident is that a week later I received a letter in my camper mailbox from my father. This was way before email or cell phones, I had no daily communication with my father. In the letter he had enclosed an article he had cut-out from a newspaper (Boston Globe?). The headline was something like: Hundreds Spot UFOs Over Small New Hampshire Town. (Hillsborough). It had occurred the same night as our incident.

I tried once in recent years to find the article in the Boston Globe microfishe at the Boston Public Library but I couldn't find it. It must have appeared in NH newspapers at the time too. - MUFON

Strange Apparition Seen in the Bay of Quinte

Thursday, April 20, 2017 - Trenton, Ontario newspaper, The Trentonian (page 11). Written by Barry Ellsworth:

Breaking news: I'm pretty sure there is a Loch Ness type of Monster in the Bay of Quinte. I know this because I saw it, about 60 feet off the shoreline. What looked like a head protruded I'd say about a foot out of the water. There was a gap of about three feet, then a body laying on the surface, like that of a very large snake. Binoculars did nothing to solve the mysterious appearance. Regular reader of the column (if they exist) know that I have had eye problems. Anyway, I wrote if off as floating wood, a common site this time of year when the water level is high. There's only one problem with that – I did look at something else for a few minutes and when looked again, it was gone. I recounted this vision to the stalwart Mary Lou. “You are imagining things,” she said. “It was just sticks.” This throwaway line was as vexing to me as the vision. “I am not imagining things,” I countered. “If it was a couple of sticks, why did they disappear? And why would a stick protrude 12 inches out of the water?” Mary Lou would not believe. “Well, maybe it was that muskrat that comes around sometimes,” she said. Really? “Well, it was at least five times the size of the biggest muskrat in world history,” I countered. Mary Lou remained unconvinced. “Maybe it was a moose,” she said. “No antlers,” I said. “You're dreaming,” Mary Lou declared. After that remark, I was dreaming, but not about sticks or muskrats or Loch Ness Monsters. “I'm telling you, it was something very different and alive,” I replied. She just looked at me with that smug little smile on her face that people give you when they are prepared to indulge your fantasy because obviously reason will not work. But I know what I saw and I saw what I know, and I know I saw a beast the size of a huge snake. God only knows how long the body was that lay submerged between the head and the three feet of body on the water surface. I think that was the tail, as big around as a telephone pole. Doubt me if you must, just like Mary Lou. But when the Lower Trent Conservation Authority reports that someone let loose an Amazon anaconda into the bay and it is terrorizing boaters and swimmers, I will be vindicated.

Implant 'Activated' After Abduction

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada - 2017-04-21: I was looking out the window and saw a starlight looking object. I thought it was the moon but it was cloudy out it looked like a white ball of light.

After I stopped looking at it I felt very sleepy so I stayed up a little bit then went to bed. I remember waking in some sort of craft-like object. They looked to be mantises and grays. They were making a clicking sound. One Gray walked in, he looked to be important. He was wearing coveralls and the others were wearing nothing. The others were scaly-like dragon scales. The scaly ones had a scalpel looking thing. They clicked there tongue loudly and I fell asleep. I woke up in my bed with a pain in my arm. I did not feel anything in my arm but the light showed up again tonight and my arm started tingling like it fell asleep but only in one spot. -
