Bigfoot's Cousin...'The Aapman'


Bigfoot's Cousin...'The Aapman'

We had strange interactions and sounds while camping in the Drakensberge in South Africa on holiday.

Now we had been sitting around the fire having a couple drinks and having a laugh when we started feeling like someone was watching us, this feeling just got worse, after a while we started shouting into the cliffs like a bunch of idiots making jokes just to calm ourselves, we decided to go to bed and call it a night. Whilst in the tents we could literally hear something moving on the cliff sides, but we shook it off and thought it's just a baboon or something.

Then we had small rocks and sticks thrown directly at the tent. This scared the sh*t out of us. We then started making jokes just to chill ourselves when we heard the LOUDEST scream/yell I've ever heard. It was very very loud; sounded big and aggressive. We all stopped joking went dead quiet and I could literally hear my own heartbeat.

The scream was repeated 4 times all from above, rocks had been thrown. Next morning we asked the camp manager WTF that was and he spoke about a local legend of the Aapman(Apeman), he seems to fully believe in the Aapman.

Needless to say we didn't go anywhere alone rest of the trip and at night times we got scared of everything that moved.

Didn't hear anything or witness anything for rest of the trip. But completely scared of the outdoors now - CD

The Mechanic

Somewhere in Manchester, UK. My uncle used to be a mechanic. He's working on a friend's car at home and needs a particular part as the one he's looking at is severely damaged. He takes the part to another garage, hoping to negotiate price on a replacement, and asks the only guy working if he has one. The guy smiles, takes the part from my uncle and then returns ten seconds later with the same part and one completely identical. By 'identical', I mean that my uncle described it as a duplicate of the original - damaged in the exact same places, with the same blemishes and tells. Confused, my uncle takes the parts from the mechanic and as he studies them, the mechanic bursts into hysterics. Thinking it a prank, my uncle calls bullsh*t and asks where he got the part, to which the mechanic replies that he 'made it.' My uncle left the shop with both parts, dumbfounded as to how the mechanic had produced the identical part.

Without reason, my uncle insists that this mechanic was an alien or something otherworldly, but I always thought his mind was titled towards this explanation as per his alleged saucer experience. As for a possible explanation, it makes sense that car parts would be subject to similar examples of damage, and perhaps the mechanic in question noticed my uncle's part looked uncannily similar to his own and saw room for a prank of sorts. Certainly explains the laughter. I'll have to apologise for the sparsity of detail in this one; I regret that I don't know the name or details of the part but could find out fairly easily if anybody gives a sh*t. Always thought of this story at its best to be weird and at its worst to be casually explainable. - NG

Phantom Dog

An anonymous caller described what he saw when he was a child:

“I'm 28 years old and when I was about 4 or 5 years old, I was asleep one night. I was sleeping on the bed with my mom because my dad had been out of town, so I was sleeping in the bed with her. I had got up to use the restroom and the room was a little room, and it had a restroom and the bed was about six feet away from the bed. And I got up to use the restroom. I used the restroom, walked back to the bed but I forgot to turn off the light so when I turned around... I turned around to go turn off the light and I seen a dog and it was walking... and it was walking towards me. And, at the time, I didn't have a sister. It was just me and two older brothers and my mom. And I didn't know why we had a dog in the house. I guess my mom was scared of them. I don't know. Anyway, I seen the dog walking towards me. I'll never forget it and I just turned around and I jumped into the bed and I tried waking my mom up. I shook her and she finally woke up. She's like, 'What's wrong?' I couldn't even talk. I was saying, 'There's a dog!' But the words wouldn't come out. And my mom looked and she said, 'There's nothing there.' And I know I wasn't dreaming either. I know what I seen. It was crazy. I ain't seen the dog ever since. That's my story.”

More 'Glimmer Man' Accounts


My personal sighting was when I was staying at a friend's house for the weekend. They live in a nice mountainside neighborhood outside of the capital city of Honduras. After a nice breakfast and a good amount of coffee, I went back to the guest room to wait while my friends got ready for the day. I was in bed playing with the dog and had the door open looking out to the living room. I was sitting up on bed when I saw 'Glimmer Man' run through the living room and out the balcony. It ran at a jogging pace so the whole thing lasted less than 2 seconds. The best way to describe it is to say I saw a humanoid shaped mirage running out of the house. The outline of the mirage was stable, it wasn't flapping around, like real mirages do. After I saw it I froze but not in fear. Just curious. I started playing with my eyes to eliminate any chance of an optical illusion, but I couldn't reproduce it.

The interesting part is that the family I was visiting are long-time experiencers of all things paranormal. The mother and the son are both alien abductees. She has been informed by her doctor that she has signs of 5 pregnancies she can't account for. They always see lights in the middle of the night. Both of them frequently wake up with bruises. And from that, they have all types of other experiences including a visit from 'Hat Man' and even a winged humanoid that fit the description of 'Mothman', red glowing eyes and all. Other people who have stayed overnight also see shadow people and the boy's girlfriend saw Glimmer Man running towards her. They have learned to live with it.

The son recently sent me an audio. A friend of his was being harassed by window tapping and other sounds. She also kept getting phone calls with weird sounds. She was able to record on of the phone calls. He tells me that he recognizes the sound recorded as something he heard in one of his alleged abductions.

All this stuff seems to be related. I am working on a hypothesis. I hope to write it up and send it over once I flesh it out.

I hope you find it interesting that all this stuff seems to be all around the world. If you use, just refer to me as Bob, and feel free to mention the fact that all this happened in Honduras.

Later

My name is Justin, and I have what has been recently coined as a Glimmer Man sighting. I've thought about this many times since it happened.

I grew up in the eighties and early nineties listening to my mother's ghost and UFO sighting stories, but I never took much stock in them. So when I had the experience that I had, I didn't tell anyone, because I have never heard of another person seeing something like what I had.

It was 2001 in mid-August, which I remember because my birthday had just passed a week or so before this happened. I was living with my Mother in her home in the Short North in Columbus Ohio. I was watching TV in the living room around 10pm. The overstuft chair I was sitting in faced the dining room and the TV was to my left where the window was. I was alone in the house, as my mother was probably at work. She was the manager at her job and normally closed the store. I had just started to think that it was off that my mother's dogs weren't in the room with me. They followed me everywhere until my mother got home. I began to feel alarmed? Like something was off. I couldn't put my finger on it at the time. The feeling intensified over the next few minutes.

At some point, I felt like I wasn't alone. I glanced over at the door leading to the dining room, and I saw it, and I was struck with fear. Standing right inside the doorway was what I can only describe as a Predator. Except it was human in shape and size. It couldn't have been any taller than me, and I'm only 5'7". It didn't move. It stood fixed in that position for several seconds. Then it lunged forward and crossed the room very quickly. All I could do was close my eyes and cover my face. And I felt air brush my hands and arms like something had moved quickly towards me. After what felt like several minutes, I managed to convince myself to lower my arms and open my eyes. I was alone in the room. Whatever was there was not anywhere to be seen.

I sat for a few more minutes trying to calm down. Then I proceeded to the game room which was toward the front of the house. My mother had a billiard table, dart board, golf clubs, and a few baseball bats in there. I picked up a baseball bat and made my way through the house room by room looking for whatever it was that I saw. The only thing that I found was my mother's dogs, hiding under the computer desk upstairs in her office.

Pterosaur Observed Near Mobile, Alabama


I recently received the following account:

What I saw that day changed by life and I have never made an official report until today. Around midday spring of 2001, I left my home to attend college classes. We lived down a single lane dirt road in the outskirts of Mobile, Alabama near a large water reservoir called Big Creek Lake. I had the windows of my car down as it was a beautiful day. The radio was off and because of the dirt road, I was driving slowly. I heard a strange noise overhead coming towards me and it piqued my curiosity enough to stop my car and try to see what it was. We lived near a coast guard base so helicopters and other small planes were not unusual to see. But when I heard the noise again, I realized it was unlike anything I had ever heard.

As I leaned my head out the open window, a shadow covered my car and the entire road. Above was the underside of a dark grey leathery animal whose sleek, muscular body carried two enormous bony wings. As it soared over me at a very low height just above the tree line, the body came to a point. I am unsure if there was a tail or just legs arranged in a linear fashion. In an instant, the shadow was gone. All sight of the animal was lost due to surrounding trees. But I heard the noise again. That is when I realized what it was. The sound of air being moved by those gigantic wings. I heard the wings flap a couple more times in what seemed like an impossible wait time between. Then, nothing. I sat in disbelief. My life has never the same. I believe that anything is possible in this weird world. I know what I saw. I will never forget. These things are real. MB

This is the exact location of my sighting:
592 Young Neck Rd
