Vintage 'Caballero' Shadow Figure


“I saw a figure that looked like a man wearing an old style Spanish hat with a wide brim. As I got closer, the black was a black like I've never seen, darker than any black, like it was sucking in the little light that was left as it was dusk, sun just setting. I was on my bicycle in a field that ran between housing neighborhoods. I got about 10 feet away from what I thought was a Mexican man in vintage style clothes since there were a lot in Sacramento, California in 1981, when I saw him. I opened my mouth to ask the stranger, 'What's up man? Where'd you get those black colored jeans?' Only I stopped on the word 'where' because it turned around to look at me. I actually snuck up on it! No lie! It was staring at a house at the edge of the field, when it turned around. I almost froze. The dude was a quarter inch thick, my mind was freaking out at this point, it was inhuman. Nothing is that thin! Then I saw its eyes or rather two perfect holes where it's eyes should of been. Instead was a bright white light inside the circles that should have been eyes. In the span of a nano-second I processed all this blacker than black shadow cut-out person with holes for eyes. And it was tall, like seven feet tall with the hat and the cloak it was wearing, like it was from colonial time.

I, being the smart ass kid I was, said to it, 'Never mind, homie, better get them eyes fixed first!' Probably not the smartest thing to do, antagonize a dark shadow thing, but I did and hit the pedals on my bike like my feet had rockets strapped on. I was riding as fast as I could, looking back, watching it to see if it was chasing me. I didn't see it, as I was turning my head back, forward. As I'm looking straight left, I see it standing straight across from me even though I left it in the dust. It was right up with me, just slowly turning its head and watching me flee for my life. I don't believe it was malevolent, in fact, I believe it was watching a demon in that house it was staring at. The house was well known for being haunted, screams and roars, and lights and smashing crashing sounds always emitting from the two story that no one lives in. I think it was monitoring the demon in that house. I saw it one more time before I quit going through that field completely, it was in the same place watching that house only this time, the house was going crazy; horrific inhuman screams and lights and the destruction sounds were LOUD. I saw it go into that house just before it started so either it's the demon or its fighting it. I swear this to be completely true, take it how you wish, but it changed my life forever.” Patrick Riley

Tall Red-Eyed Humanoid Encountered in Oakland, CA


I recently found the following account:

I was driving home with my brother between 12 and 2 AM. I had just gotten on the highway and in the middle divider of the road my headlights shined on giant man at least 8 to 9 feet tall and his skin was all charcoal grey. He wasn't broad, (I couldn't see his body because it looked like he was wearing a large black trench coat or cloak of some kind) but I'd imagine he would have been around 200-250 pounds from how his head looked. He also had red glowing eyes, which seemed like they glowed on their own and weren't just reflecting my headlights since I could still seem them once my lights were no longer shining on him.

I was driving at least 50-60mph so I only saw him for a few seconds. It almost looked like he was shocked to see me and was shuffling back into the bushes but he was almost as tall as them. The way he walked creeped me out the most, he was sidestepping but they were fast really short steps like if you had to walk with your pants around your ankles or a were a penguin or something.

I yelled "what the f**k!" and my brother, who was laying back in his seat sat up, looked over and said "what the f**k!" too. We were both rattled but kept on driving home

This was in Oakland, CA in August 2017. I don't remember the exact date but I could probably find out since someone I know had a wedding a few days before.

Below is a really bad drawing of what he looked like and a maps link to the part of the highway I saw him on. I don't remember the exact place but it was somewhere on that stretch of highway - Derateo

NOTE: Is it possible that this being had wings wrapped around it? Possibly similar to the Bolingbrook, IL encounter? I put that question to the witness...waiting for a reply. Lon

'Giant birds do exist!'


“Giant birds do exist having seen -- and heard -- one myself. I was deer hunting and heard a slow swishing sound for about 3 minutes then saw what looked like a giant white hawk fly over (about a 16 foot wingspan -- and that's on the conservative side). I've flow RC airplanes and seen different size aircraft, and it is possible to get a fair idea of its size and height from a distance. I've also seen ordinary hawks with as much as a 6 foot wingspan but the bird I described was absolutely huge and likely a freak of nature. Condors have a span of about 10 feet; however, the bird I saw was definitely significantly larger then that.” L

-----

“I saw a Thunderbird a few months ago (2017) early in the morning while I was driving on the highway to catch the bus for work. It was still a little dusk, but it caught my eye because it was huge and flying relatively low. Long beak with the pointy head and the long tail with the arrow tip. What I found really fascinating was how the wings almost flapped in slow motion. They were flapping at 1/4 the speed of Canadian geese. If I wasn't on the highway, I would've pulled over to get out of the car just to get a better look. There wasn't much time for anything else. It was flying perpendicular to the way I was traveling. Truly amazing to witness. Just wish I had someone with me to see it too.” PP

-----

“I saw a Thunderbird for sure. It scared the crap out of me. I was in Muskegon, Michigan, about 1975, spring time. So, they definitely exist. If someone is still doing research on this contact me, I'll give you all the details.” BC

Giant Black Triangular UFO

“14 years ago myself and my 2 kids saw something very similar. We were driving to Seattle in the middle of the night to beat Thanksgiving day traffic from our home in Kalama, Washington. We took the 512 McCord Air Force exit and a few miles later I saw a gigantic black triangle a mile or so ahead of us hovering low in the sky. I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I'm a skeptic so I was trying to figure out what kind of military craft it was. My 16 year old daughter spoke. I thought she was sleeping so I looked at her. She asked me, 'WTF is that Mom?' 'I don't know,' I said. We all three turned to stare. My son woke because we were talking. Anyway when we looked again the thing multiplied, there were 3 now. The other 2 were smaller but the same shape, all had lights on the outer perimeter. We stared for a good 5 minutes because I slowed down to get a good look. After going straight under it we saw military jets banking hard and heading straight for it. Suddenly they all disappeared. I don't know if they just hit the lights out or if they left. All three of us are sceptics so to this day we aren't calling what we saw alien aircraft but definitely a UFO.” RP
