The Girls on the Pier

Brian wrote in to Darkness Radio with a weird story:

“The year. 1990. Desert Storm and Nelson Mandela being freed from prison. Myself and three friends, while serving in the British Army, traveled to Brighton, England for a few days of R & R holiday. The weather being particularly hot that year, we were wasting no time enjoying it. Myself and my friend Andy decided to go for a walk along Brighton Pier, famous for its amusement arcade and ice cream. Whilst there we got to speaking to two young German girls from Nuremberg and we hit it off immediately. They spoke broken English and we tried our best WWII movie German commandant accents with them.

For the next few hours we all laughed and joked about everything with each other and the language barrier became less of a distraction as the evening wore on. One girl was a blonde and the other a redhead. Both beautiful and way out of our league, and yet they liked us and wanted to know more about us. As we were both in the awkward teenage years, myself and Andy didn't know which girl liked who and I was just glad to get some attention from the opposite sex. After awhile we all decided to meet again at the same time and place the next day. They left the Pier to join friends while we waited for our other two friends to join us.

The following evening, filled with nerves and apprehension, myself and Andy made our way to the Pier. Standing at the entrance were these two beautiful German girls all dressed up in tight dresses waiting for us. I couldn't believe my luck. We all walked to the Pier and got some food before deciding we should all go to the cinema to see 'Bird on a Wire' starring Mel Gibson. Myself and Andy looked at each other, knowing that this would be the ideal place to find out which girl liked who. We made our way to the Pier exit but at this point for the strangest reason ever, Andy walked ahead of all of us and ran across the large open road in front of us. I called him back but he continued to run toward the other side. Knowing that he was heading in the wrong direction to the cinema, I apologized to the girls and asked them to stay where they were so I could return my idiotic friend. I ran over to the other side, approximately 20 meters in width where he was standing at. I grabbed him and said, What are you doing, the cinema is this way? He could not provide any reason or rationale for his behavior. At this point we both quickly headed back to the other side of the road but to our bemusement, the girls were nowhere to be seen. This is less than 10 to 15 seconds since I spoke to them.

Now if you could picture the scene at Brighton Pier. It's a long wide open road that stretches out a long distance and would require some amount of running for the girls to hide, especially running in the dresses that they were wearing. We looked everywhere for the next few hours, searching the Pier pretty extensively but to no avail and eventually giving up and being annoyed with Andy. The next day at the same time, we came back to the Pier to seek out the girls but they never showed up. The next day we had to leave to go elsewhere and never got the chance to speak to those two German girls from Nuremberg.

Andy and me lost touch not long after that but caught up 25 years later. After a few war stories and some alcohol, the topic of Brighton came up. We discussed what happened that night. Maybe after all this time, Andy would have a different view of the story that I had on it but he didn't and to this day he still felt as I did about it - spooked as hell. We both discussed, where did they go and what happened? Why did Andy walk away without reason? How could we not see them run away if that is what they decided to do? So many more unanswered questions. To this day, I don't know if those two girls from Germany are alive, dead or just part of our imagination. Or, was it something more paranormal?”

Black Angel Encounter

I was on my way home from Chester WV. with my girlfriend. We were on RT 68 between East Liverpool Ohio and Midland Pa. along the Ohio River. It was in December 2010. The time was around 3 am and a thing that looked like a black angel flew in front of my truck, it was about 6 ft tall and was so close we both ducked. What ever it was came from the river side of the road. I wanted to go to the Midland Pa. Police but my girlfriend said they would think we were crazy, we often talk about this but that was as far as it went. - witness report


Short Entity in Baggy U.S. Army Uniform

San Antonio, TX - 2016-07-12: I would like to discuss this event with a person it is too much to write about with my phone. A friend and I gave a ride to an individual in a baggy army uniform. This person was too short to have been accepted into the military and it's appearance was very strange. My friend (a veteran ) and I gave this entity a short ride. Later, we reported this to the military police at Fort Sam Houston. The officer on the phone was belligerent, and eventually hung up on me for no obvious reason. There is more I would like to discuss about this event that would flesh out this event. Thank you. There was no craft involved, just a lone being on a rural road near a major installation and needing a ride. - MUFON CMS

Mythical 'Blob' Found

A strange-looking invertebrate has been spotted by a deep-sea ROV over a century after its discovery.

With its translucent body and ethereal otherworldly appearance, Bathochordaeus charon was first observed all the way back in 1899 by Prof Carl Chun of Leipzig University during an expedition to explore the depths of the South Atlantic.

Believing it to have originated from the bottom of the sea, he named it 'Charon' after the ferryman who in Greek mythology is tasked with transporting the souls of the deceased across the river Styx.

Further accounts of the creature however have been scarce with only a few being reported over the last century. Of those examined by scientists, none seemed to exactly match Chun's discovery.

Now though, Rob Sherlock of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute has finally managed to locate and even capture one off the coast of California using a remote-operated vehicle.

"Since the vehicle was recovered some tens of minutes later, the animal was alive, in fantastic shape, and we preserved it right away in order to send it to the Smithsonian," he said.

"We had no idea, until we looked more closely at the specimen, that we had actually found B. charon, the species first described over a hundred years ago."

"It felt like Chun had finally been vindicated after years of doubt." - 'Mythical' Sea Blob Finally Spotted a Century After Its Discovery


Huge Flying Prehistoric Cryptid

In 1970, My mother and I saw a bird that followed the car up a mountain road near Maysville, WV. We saw only the tail and the underside of this animal. It's wings were almost as wide as the road. This animal repeatedly flew over the hood of the car as we drove. It did not have a feathered tail - it's tail looked long and coiled up. It was dark in color.

When we witnessed this I told my mother that I looked like a prehistoric bird. This animal was much larger than a turkey, turkey buzzard, owl, eagle, hawk or any other bird of prey that I have ever seen. It had a broad heavy body. In fact it looked so large that it had trouble getting airborne and it used the path of the road to get up in the air. This bird looked large enough to easily take down a dog or deer-sized animal.

I cannot say that it had any man-like features but this was something that both myself and my mother still remember. I have to believe that other people witnessed what we saw and I can see why they called it Mothman. This is a true story - for obvious reasons I can see that people blow it off as untrue but we know the truth. I know another person in Maysville, WV that has described something similar. He explained to me he did not know what it was but it was as big as the highway is wide.- Witness correspondence

Location: Iron Mountain, Michigan - 1972 - 10:50 pm

The witness was driving out of the parking lot of his foundry job when he noticed an object flying about 100 ft in the air above a junkyard. He noticed 4 lights, 2 red and 2 green. Suddenly it shot a bright beam down onto several of the wrecked cars in the junkyard, shut it off, and proceeded east repeating the same thing. The object then stops to hover above some trees and bushes. The witness drove closer to the object and realized it was a giant round disc shaped craft. There was a dome-like structure on the top with a giant pane of glass with 2 creatures standing. One pointed towards the witness car, turned to the other and immediately the glass was covered by some kind of barrier so it simply looked like a disc with a dome. The witness then stood directly under the object where he saw a mesmerizing red light that had an extremely tranquilizing effect on the witness. The underside of the object had a slight lip around the edge. Crisscrossing the belly were what appeared to be some kind of tubes or I-beams, which passed through to each of the lights resembling a “cross” or plus sign. Eventually, the witness heard a whine like an electric motor starting, and then silence set in. The lights then became more intense, while four globes beneath the object began to send off what looked like bolts of lightning. Out of nowhere and completely encircling the disc, came a coil, which looked like it was made up of overlapping scales, like fish scales, roughly spherical in shape and about 12 inches at the widest. The disc then rose cleared the top of the foundry roof and preceded slightly northeast, it momentarily turned its lights off as it glided across a street. The craft then stopped and disappeared. The witness then suddenly found himself back home.

Years later the witness remembered being lifted up on a beam of light and being inside of the disc. There he met the same two beings he had seen previously. One of the humanoids was about 4-½ ft tall, the other 4 ft. Their skin was kind of iridescent gray and they had large eyes, no ears, or mouth. They had 4 fingers on each hand with a tiny suction cup-like on each finger. Inside the object everything was metallic with sky-blue seat cushions. The humanoids seemed to lack what we would call substance, rather like a holographic image of one kind or another. He was told telepathically that they had needed electrons from the iron in the junked cars, which they needed as fuel. The witness could not remember how he left the object.

Location: Putre, Chile - June 27-28, 1974

Young Bolivian student Lucio Quevedo Lazarte was sleeping in his room when a noise coming from the living room woke him up. Going to investigate he was confronted by a man with very short white hair, wearing a tight-fitting shiny black outfit that ended in a closed turtleneck. On his arm he wore a bracelet and his hands were enclosed in dark gloves. He also wore a strange metallic belt with several sphere and rhomboid shaped object clinging from it. Lucio at first thought that the stranger was a thief and begged him not to steal the curtains. The entity answered him by saying: "I could changed that what you call a curtain for something of more value." At that moment the humanoid took out of his belt one of the rhomboid shaped objects and placed it in front of Lucio's face, at this time Lucio lost consciousness. Later he woke up from a kind of trance and the stranger had already gone. He went back to bed and covered himself completely even though he was unable to sleep after that.

The next day, Lucio woke up in his bed stiff, pale and unable to move. A local police doctor attended to him and concluded that he had some type of virulent disease. He woke up around noon, seemingly returning to normal. Around 1500 he suddenly got up from bed and climbed up on top of a bunk and proceeded to jump out the window. His brother Julio saw him and ran quickly to assist him, but to his surprised he could not find Lucio anywhere, not a trace of him. The police were called and they searched for him throughout the afternoon.

Around 9:00 pm a scream was heard: "He is here!" Everyone ran to the location and found student Donato Perez on the ground with Lucio lying directly on top of him. Donato explained that he saw Lucio being accompanied by two men that upon seeing him dropped him to floor and vanished. Lucio's clothing was dirty, and his shoes stained with grayish volcanic sand. During a medical examination it was discovered that his fingertips had triangular shaped scars on them. A couple of days later he was able to recall what happened and remembered that as he fell out of the window two short humanoids grabbed him and took him flying to the nearby Taapaca Volcano. There they entered a landed object and inside he saw additional humanoids (not described). Later the same 2 short humanoids took him back and that's when Donato saw him arriving. In the area around the Volcano investigators found several ground traces.

Location: Sevilla, Spain - October 14, 2000 - night

Joaquin Aranda was out hunting in a field near his ranch when he spotted on top of a nearby hill, a luminous figure that as it walked, emitted flashes of bright light. Aranda then told his dog to go towards the strange figure. The animal walked a few paces then ran away into the brush. Lacking options and a little frightened the witness fired a shot into the air. Instead of being intimidated the luminous figure began walking towards the witness. At this point Aranda fired towards the figure that ignored the shot and apparently was not harmed and kept approaching him. Frightened Aranda dropped the rifle and fled from the area. Returning to the scene the next day accompanied by his sons, Aranda found the rifle propped up against a tree, and no tracks or footprints around it.

That same night Diego Garrido was driving on the C-421 motorway near the city when as he rounded a curve he noticed a very luminous figure that appeared to be walking along the embankment. As Garrido drove by, the figure lunged towards the car, causing the witness to slam on the brakes. He noticed that the figure had amorphous facial features, with two concaved cavities where the eyes would have been and a small dot in the area of the nose. Terrified the witness accelerated and left the area at high speed.

Location: Manchester, Indiana - January 24, 2004 - 7:30 pm

A 17-year old motorist traveling almost 10 miles north of Aurora, Indiana on a Saturday night claims to have encountered an unusual figure on the road. While driving his black Chevrolet Cavalier southbound along North Hogan Road a "figure" was spotted in the headlights of the automobile as it was crouched down near a puddle of water. From the driver's perspective the figure was spotted out the windshield on the right of the car. After passing the frail-looking figure, the driver looked into his rear view mirror and again observed, illuminated by the taillights of his car, what he described as a tall, abnormal figure that moved strangely with pointed joints that "buckled out". He estimated the figure stood around 6 feet, seven inches. "It had protruding joints and moved very strangely." The driver said he was able to ascertain the figure, alleged to be dark gray or black and "pencil thin" stand up and take several steps toward the woods along the roadside. The figure definitely walked on two legs and was thought somehow, to be a male, although no clothing was noted. No face or eyes could be seen, but the witness had the impression that the figure was looking straight at him. The figure was immediately thought to be something out of the ordinary, not a human being. The duration of the sighting was "hurried" and possibly within the 3 to 4 second range.

The driver continued on for a small distance after passing the figure and finally put on his brakes, coming to a stop at an estimated 2 minute walking distance on the road from the location of the sighting. He looked back to further observe the entity. At that point, a second car came into view and approached from the opposite direction, passed and then reached the spot on the road where the figure was thought to be. The 17-year old motorist reportedly watched closely and observed the second car undertake what he thought to be an evasive maneuver near the vicinity of where he thought the figure would be situated, and then the car turned around at that spot and shortly pulled up behind him, somewhat in the grass. There was an elderly couple in the car, both in their late 60s or early 70s and both with gray hair. The driver, who wore glasses said, "Boy, did you see something back there? I'll tell you right now, that was no person." The passenger, an elderly female said, "It was no human being. It was no man."

The elderly couple was reportedly "spooked" but offered to follow the first witness the remainder of the trip down North Hogan Road, clearly in the opposite direction of their intended destination route. It was thought that the elderly couple observed this same figure on the opposite side of the road, and possibly had observed it more closely. Later, the 17-year old witness was said to have become hysterical, and within an hour was describing the figure as an "alien".
