'Large Black Flying Man' Sighting - Calumet Park Neighborhood in Chicago


I just received a telephone call from a witness in the Calumet Park neighborhood of Chicago.

The woman and her boyfriend noticed a large black figure above a group of trees in the vicinity of 127th & Ashland Ave. at approximately 7:30 PM on Saturday, May 27th. The witnesses state that they first thought that it was a black helicopter because of the size, though the distance was not determined. The object then rose further in the sky and became apparent that it was a large human-like being with wings.

They described it as black in color and it was flying without moving it's wings. They were shocked at the size as it silhouetted itself across the moon, which was visible in the late clear evening. There was still considerable light, but too dark to get a discernible video or photograph with their cellphone, though there was an attempt to capture photographic evidence.

They determined that it was not a plane or glider, but a living being of unknown origin. The description by the woman was that is looked like a 'large black flying man with wings.'

The woman (who did disclose her name to me) was disturbed by this encounter. She searched the internet and discovered my posts on Phantoms and Monsters. She was surprised by the previous sightings in Chicago, which she was not aware of. She plans to be vigilant during the next few evenings and will be making inquiries of possible sightings by other witnesses.

I found that the witnesses were very credible and made no attempt to embellish their sighting. Lon

Weekend 2 Cents: Indiana 'Monster Crab' -- Her 'Big Friend'


Indiana 'Monster Crab'

“It's funny that you mentioned Indiana as being a hotbed of strange occurrences. I spent time there working in a coal mine in Vincennes and heard a story that, though brief, was truly strange. I became good friends with a new guy on our crew and one day our conversation turned to cryptids. This guy was a college grad and a family man, in his late twenties. He decided to leave his job as an ultrasound tech and find more adventurous work. I considered him an intelligent and trustworthy man. So what he told me was this.

He grew up on a local farm. The area was soybean fields criss-crossed with a number of large creeks. His sister and cousin were with him swimming in one of these creeks one day, they were around ten or eleven years old, when they saw the surface of the water become agitated. As they watched from about twenty yards away, a crab about four feet wide burst from the water and pulled itself up onto the bank. He told me it looked like any other crab except for its monstrous size. The creature climbed up over the bank and was gone. The kids cautiously climbed the bank after it and found only its large tracks in the freshly ploughed field. He said that it must have made for one of the other creeks nearby after being disturbed. He told me that it scared the hell out of them and ended the swimming in those creeks. The guy was not a liar or a spinner of tall tales. He was kinda embarrassed to talk about it thinking I might react as his family did with disbelief. I think that what he told me was true and what he saw was real.”

Her 'Big Friend'

I recently received the following account:

Like to tell you a story. I work as an ice logger in Peace River, Alberta. Now mind you I am there only 4 months a year. But I will tell you that we have a nice camp, nice setup and we go 24/7 hauling wood for the big chippers...and chips go to China as wood heat etc. Anyhow, we had a bridge out where we have to take the big chip trucks across and were 6 of us there. Some idiot trucker threw out a bag of trash right on the river, mind you at this time in the season it was 40F below. We all saw these big tracks come out to this bag and rifle thru it. This thing whatever it was drug its feet whether to hide its prints or what. But all off us and we are tough bruised, battled and scared loggers NEVER said a word to each other. Just looks or I guess glares at each other. But we knew there was something there in the wood line. We done our work and we got the hell outta there.

This is the thing. Truck drivers don't have to stay in the woods like us. This.. whatever it was did not like that bag of trash thrown there. We were not allowed at night when we were skidding to go 5 feet from machine, have your smoke but don't go to far lol. Now this is written down as a offense if you do it. Old Cook...well she is not that old but she told us not to throw food out at the camp cause it would cause ravens to come in and cause a racket in the morning. Because the boys work 12 hr shifts and hate to get woke up.

Anyway this night I was on days at the time and could not sleep. So after supper I stayed around the kitchen talking to her. She is a Plains Cree lady and I am Mi'kmaw. So after awhile like 9 or 9:30 I noticed her bagging stuff, leftover dinner etc. I said I will take that out for you. Our trash bins are bear-proof with heavy lids. She said 'no.' So I watched her take this bag outside and lay it beside the bear proof bins. I was thinking WTF...did not ask her much or why really she does that. But in a way she said it was for her 'big friend.' I did not go see if the food was gone as I work 12 hr shifts, but I do watch here after our supper and or breakfast. She puts certain things aside for somebody. Anyway just a little thing that made me think off you. Love your page - MJM

Daily 2 Cents: 'Smiling' Alien Encounter -- Bizarre Modified' People -- Machete-Wielding Clown Terrorizes Drivers


'Smiling' Alien Encounter

Rodney in Centennial, Colorado called in to describe his encounter:

1975 - Longmont, Colorado

“A long time ago when I was young kid, 12 or 13 years old, back in 1975 or 1976. I was living in Longmont, Colorado...living out in the country with my parents. I was riding back one night from my friend's house and, you know, I called my parents and told them, 'hey, I'm coming home.' So I got on my bicycle and started riding back home. There's this big hill on the way home, and it was dusk out. I've rode up on top of the hill and, you could see the countryside and everything, and I seen these red lights. The red lights were like shimmering and bouncing up and down, and I thought that's got to be a helicopter. The next thing you know that things started coming up and it was bouncing as it's coming up to me. It flew right up to me on the hillside and it was a really small silver disc. It had a window in it and there was an alien there operating these handles and stuff trying to like keep the ship leveled. I was sitting there amazed.

You know, the thing about it was at the time I wasn't even thinking about aliens. I wasn't even thinking that way. Well, this thing flew up into my face and this window there, and this alien and it wasn't a grey alien, like you see on TV. It wasn't like that. He had white skin and big eyes, right, and kind of a small nose and a small mouth, big round head but small body. (Jimmy Church asks how far away was the craft) Oh god, maybe 15 or 20 feet. It was really intense and I was sitting on the hill on my bicycle holding the bicycle handles. It was operating the knobs, like I told you, the thing was kind of bouncing around and shimmering. I was going to reach up to wave at him and he looked right at my hand like he was going to get ready to shoot me or something. I didn't move. I just stood there and looked at him with my eyes wide open and I smiled. He smiled right back and then he flew off. The lights disappeared and I kind of got scared and went home. (Church asks if he told the parents) I didn't tell them nothing, right, and I didn't tell anybody nothing until almost 10 years ago."

Unexplained Burn Marks in Yard

Pittsburgh, PA - 2017-05-15: This past weekend I noticed very odd patches in my yard. They were dead or burned out areas. The thing that is very odd is that all the marks are nearly the same mark or pattern. Each is oriented in a different direction and they are mostly in 2 clusters. They are all appx: 30" wide by 24". I am not claim them to be extraterrestrial, But they have me puzzled and thought MUFON may want to look at them. I thought maybe they have been identified before. Please feel free to contact me. - MUFON
