Winged Humanoid / Diamond-Shaped UFO Seen Near Same Location in Rockford, Illinois

I recently talked to a witness 'JL' who had a UFO experience and. then later, a winged humanoid encounter at the same location.

On the evening of January 1, 2000, JL and her son were traveling on Spring Creek Rd in Rockford, Illinois. As they approached Rock Creek they both observed a large diamond shaped craft hovering above the creek. The craft was brightly lit and there was a distinct beam of light coming from the bottom towards the creek. JL slowed the car and the craft suddenly cut off the beam. At the same time, the craft slowly ascended into the night sky.

JL and her son had lingering dreams after the incident and both started to notice paranormal activity around them.

Then on an October night in 2002, at around 8 pm, JL was again driving on Spring Creek Rd near Rock Creek. She observed a winged shape approaching her head-on. By the time this flying anomaly got near her, it swooped up and over the car. JL states that the winged being was humanoid in shape with two leg-like structures trailing below it. The wing span was so wide that it literally blocked out all the street lights. She estimates that it was 6 ft in height, black in color and had large wings approximately 12 ft in total width.

She immediately stopped the car, got out and looked down the road behind her. The winged being had vanished, but she noticed that the trees were moving as if a huge gust of wind had gone through them. She also stated that the being never flapped its wings. It seemed to be propelled by an unknown force.

JL has experienced a sense of consternation and anxiety ever since the incident, even though she now lives Tennessee.
