2 Winged Humanoids Glide Over New Jersey Highway

I recently received the following account:

Lon...I've listened to your podcasts many times and wanted to share an encounter I had over 20 years ago, here in northern New Jersey. I was in a car with a friend of mine, traveling east on Rt.80...maybe Rt.46. I can't remember exactly. It was still daylight, August or September. We were on a 4-lane highway and the weather was clear. All of a sudden from the driver's side on the left of the highway came 2 human-shaped things with wings gliding over the highway, just a few feet (2') over the tops of the cars as we passed over a body of water! They were a muddy brown color, 2 arms, 2 legs, and 2 wings each, neck and head. The bodies looked almost wet, or leathery. It was only a few seconds that passed. we had a "wtf" moment! They flew over the highway and swooped back down over the opposite side. We didn't notice any flapping of wings, just a smooth, gliding motion. Didn't see any detail in the faces or eyes. I would guess they were about 6-7 feet in height with a thin, athletic body type. Almost gargoyle-like. My friend and I haven't shared this with too many people. Some react like we're lying, but we both talk about it every once in awhile. Thanks - Don


Missing Time Incident

Country lane in South Carolina, 1990s. My brother driving, me a passenger. Dark road, nearing dusk. A phone line crossed over the road between poles at one point. Dark fields to either side. As we neared it, we saw a greenish-blue-white glow around the middle of the wire over the center of the road. It was hazy and puzzled us. We'd never seen anything like it. Seemed about the size of a large Coleman cooler, but rounded. He slowed as we passed under it, so we could get a good look. We did not stop. It was dark by the time we arrived, and people started asking where we'd been. "We came straight over," we insisted. Yet the fifteen minute ride to my sister's house we were on had become 90 minutes. No explanation. GS
