Flying Human-Like Creature - Cherry Hill, NJ

I received an interesting 'flying humanoid' report from New Jersey today:

I came across your site looking for answers of what my daughter and I seen in the sky and there are similar stories to ours. I am from Cherry Hill, NJ and approx. two years ago to this day my daughter and I where riding our bikes. It was bright that night due to a full moon. Not many clouds in the sky but a few that would once in a while make the night darker.

We stopped by a friend's house. Her and her two daughters came out and we where all just talking. I happened to look up in the sky and there's this flying long human shaped thing with a wing span approx 7-8 feet wide. It reminded me of the movie 'Jeepers Creepers.' My mouth just kind of opened and I was speechless and pointing as it went behind the cloud near the moon. I told them what I had just witnessed. Everyone kind of giggled and I told them it did not come out of the cloud yet to keep looking. Well to our eyes it appeared again. My daughter just stood there watching it repeating herself 'mom what is that?' I know she had that same hard-to-swallow feeling I did, while my friend's two girls ran inside screaming. We watched as it flapped and soared near the moon till it disappeared into the clouds again and never came out.

I know what I had seen that night, but wouldn't know what to call it except a flying human-like creature. An experience I would never take back and when I hear others, I really want to believe they had seen the same thing I had. My daughter to this day (now 14) feels there is so much out there we really don't know much about. What is myth and what is real? A night we will never forget and keeping herself busy researching the Jersey Devil to Mothman and Slender Man. It's out there!!! Strasse7

NOTE: Because of the distance, the wingspan could have easily surpassed 7-8 ft. Very interesting multiple witness sighting. The description of the being was similar to the 'Night Stalker' from The 'Night Stalker': Terrible Being Torments Family. The witnesses in that incident also referred to the character in 'Jeepers Creepers.' Lon

  1. Jeepers Creepers is one of the top scariest movies in my book. :) To think that there are people witnessing a creature like in that movie is too freaky! I honestly couldn't imagine seeing one flying around IRL. It would be like not believing what you're actually seeing!

  2. There are LOTS of things in this world, that the powers that be, don't want us to know about. In this case, I don't believe the creature to be aggressive. if it were, you would have stories about people being attacked. There are none. Same thing with Bigfoot. LOTS of stories; no one dead. It would indeed be nice to know more about these creatures. but, i choose to believe they are nothing "evil."

  3. Reminds me of the flying man of Coney Island in 1880, and the John Keel anecdote about Vietnam soldiers who saw something similar in 1969.
