Large Cryptid Quadruped Encountered in Odessa, Texas

1990s (early) - Odessa, Texas - A bunch of Odessa oil workers were leaving work at around 9:00 PM. They had piled into a pickup truck and began driving down the road (other workers were following behind in another truck) when something came out of the forest and actually bit the tire of the truck. The driver swerved and was lightly clipped by another vehicle. They apparently had run over the creature which took off running into the woods. The numerous witnesses on the scene were shocked by the creature which they described as a hyena-like beast about the size of a large hog. They guessed that it weighed between 400 and 500 pounds. It had a tail which was tucked between its legs. When it came out of the woods, the witnesses claimed that it appeared to do so with a purpose. The creature was on all fours throughout the encounter.

Little People in Red Orb

Last night I woke up to my baby crying, looked over, and there was a red orb, about a foot in diameter, with two or three (I'm not sure because it left so fast) little figures inside. I saw it as it was leaving through the wall, to the left of my TV. I've seen some things, but never this. I know some people are gonna say hypnogogic hallucinations, and while that is of course a possibility, I really don't think that's it. Does anyone have any insight on this? There are almost always blue and white orbs around me and my immediate family. Usually relatively small though. PP


Flashing Glitches

“A couple years ago when my brother first learned how to drive, he and I were on the way back from the store in our mother's car. We were on a long dark road when we saw a car coming toward us from a ways up the road. The car then turned to the right, our left, into a large field. We could still see the cars lights for a moment, but then we saw a strike of lightning in the field. At first we didn’t think anything of it except that seeing a lightning strike so close was cool. As we continued on the road however, we saw a lack of two things, 1. Any kind of road, paved or otherwise, that the car would have turned onto. And 2. The car itself.

Unrelated, more and more I am seeing visual glitches. A quick flash or streak of light across the wall or ceiling, miss-colored or misshapen patches, like texture errors, light reflections when there is no source, and I even occasionally see the sun itself flash.” JW
