Daily 2 Cents: Large Dark-Winged Creature -- Flying Humanoid Observed -- 'Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research' Team Meets

Large Dark-Winged Creature Encountered in Michigan

I recently received the following account:

In response to the large winged creature spotted in Lansing, MI last year. My husband and I also had a very brief encounter in about 2009. We were on Vermontville highway in the country heading west. It is nothing but farmland and rolling hills between Potterville and Vermontville. As we were driving some dark-winged creature with a wing span bigger than our car, bigger than a full sized couch flew 10 feet over our car. Both my husband & I sat in silence trying to put together what in the heck we both saw. It seemed like eternity before my husband broke the silence first, but it was probably only 10 seconds. It happened so quick we couldn't get any more details than that, but it was unlike anything we had ever seen. The only comparison I can relate it to would be the Mothman. This occurred about 30 miles southwest of Lansing, MI. Spooked the heck out of us. - SD


Flying Humanoid Observed in Hudson, Illinois

5/22/2018: Three friends of mine and I were watching the sunset on Evergreen Lake in Comlara Park in Hudson, Illinois about ten miles away from our college campus. As the sky is getting darker, two lights appeared out of nowhere (literally in the blink of an eye) directly above the lake. The red light was above the green light and they were obviously attached to something in which the outline slightly resembled a human with his arms a bit out. It flew towards us, evident by how the lights were getting larger as it flew closer, flew backwards (without the lights turning away from us) and then disappeared just as fast as it appeared. The lights did not blink once. We immediately left. - MUFON

On Wednesday June 27, 2018 the 'Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research' (Pennsylvania) team gathered in Hanover, PA to begin work on a new project. When a formal announcement is made by the parties involved, I will release the details of the project. This will be a presentation of actual anomalous activity reported to us within the state of Pennsylvania and other investigation locations (including the Chicago Phantom sightings & encounters). Thanks again for your continued support. Lon

Mass Hysteria Grips Filipino School

Classes in Ronda National High School were suspended yesterday morning after some 30 female students were reportedly possessed by evil spirits, causing panic in the school.

It started when a student reportedly saw a faceless man with half of his body missing inside her classroom in Barangay Palanas.

Students from other sections in Grades 8, 9, and 10 reportedly suffered from the same demonic possession.

They began shaking and some reportedly had trouble breathing, according to school officials who had to bring some of the students to the health center. Read more at Students ‘possessed’ in Ronda school
