Red Eyes in the Night Sky

I recently found the following account:

I believe I had a Mothman encounter in August of 2005. I was 19. I visited Point Pleasant with my friend and fiance. We were just dumb kids being dumb kids, thought it would be fun to go find "The Mothman." We didn't even plan the trip out very much. We borrowed this old tent that belonged to my fiance's father and I swear to God hadn't been opened since the 70s. When we made it into town, it was already dark. We stopped at a police station and they were friendly enough, told us where we could camp.

We went down all these creepy back roads and it seemed so dark and isolated. We were having a good time, pretending to scare the sh*t out of each other, as kids do. We were driving down one back road just surrounded by woods. It was completely dark other than the headlights. And we all three saw two enormous red eyes in the sky. I know how it sounds. But it honest to God happened, and we all about p*ssed ourselves because of how high off the ground they were. We all three screamed like little girls and my fiance floored it.

After the initial shock and just feeling shaky and unnerved, my fiance recovered and wanted to set up camp. My friend and I thought he was an idiot and we refused to sleep anywhere near those woods. We ended up sleeping in the car in a hospital parking lot once we were back to civilization. We later found out the directions to the camping spot we got was in/around the TNT area. We had no prior information about this. We barely planned at all.

We had breakfast at Biscuit World the next morning and for whatever reason chose not to share our encounter with anyone. I guess we thought no one would believe us if we did. We left a day early since we didn't want to try sleeping in the car in August again.

When we got home, Hurricane Katrina had made it's way toward the gulf coast. It was all over the news. (We had listened to mix CDs the whole trip and hadn't even been aware of anything going on.) It just struck me, because a Mothman sighting is said to be an omen of tragedy and misfortune.

It's still this crazy story I tell people, and they laugh, but what happened stays with me. Be careful what you go looking for, kids. You just might find it. OM
