BLACK-EYED KID, Dressed in 1950s Garb, Standing at Farm Road Entrance


A Pennsylvania man is driving to his job in Delaware along a long winding farm road. He suddenly sees a boy dressed in 1950s garb standing at the entrance to a farm. The boy had black eyes.

“I think I saw a black-eyed kid. So I went online after this happened to me and people have written stories about their experiences with meeting black-eyed children and they say that, one, they can't come into where you are unless you invite them in. They will usually pretend to be lost or need to use your phone or your bathroom in order to get into your house, or your car, or whatever. If you say no, then they can't come in. Secondly, nobody really has an explanation for what they are. Some people think that they are demons. Some people think that they're ghosts or aliens. Nobody really knows, so, yeah, I had heard of them before I had this experience but I really don't have any answers, even after I've had this experience.

I live in southeast Pennsylvania. I work in Delaware and my ride to work is this very long winding farm road. At one point I make a right onto another farm road and this road is a very, very tight space. It's two ways so you can go one way in cars. We can go the opposite way, but it's a very, very tight space. So when you're driving, the car beside you that's coming the opposite way, you both kinds of have to slow down just to be safe. It's kind of a dangerous road. Now, on each side of you are very tall grass hills, so if a cop was going to pull you over, I'm not really sure exactly where you'd pull off. You'd have to ride down the road for a while before you'd be able to pull over because it's that type of space and there's nowhere to pull over, really.

So I'm driving this road on a Saturday. I had to be at work at 3 PM and it was around 2:30 PM. I'm on this road, this very tight space, and there are cars coming the opposite way, and I'm slowing down so that we can both pass safely. I look to my right and there's a break in the hills, in the grass hills, where there's an entrance to a farm, and I look over, and in that entrance is a little boy. First of all, on Saturday it was 40 degrees, and he was not dressed like it was 40 degrees. He did not have a coat on. No hat. No scarf. No gloves. Nothing. He had on a red and gray striped shirt and jeans. The way he was dressed and the way he looked, he didn't look like he was from this time period. He looked like he was maybe from the 1950s. He was very pale and he was staring. He was standing on his bike. He wasn't on his bike. His bike was to the right of him and he was holding it and he was stiff. He's stiff as a board and, at first, I actually thought he was a statue.

Anyway, he's standing there staring straight ahead like his eyes are really big. He's staring straight ahead and his eyes are black, like, they're completely black and I'm looking right in his face. He's not that far for me, he's maybe 50 feet away, and I'm looking right in his face and he's just staring straight ahead and not moving. I was really creeped out by it and then my window started to fog up, but only my window. My windshield, my back windshield, the passenger seat, or the back seats, none of them fogged up, only mine. I really don't believe in this stuff, like, I don't think about strange phenomena. I don't read too much into it, whatever, so I know that this sounds crazy but I promise you, I'm not crazy and this also isn't a trolling video, like, I'm not putting this out there for attention or anything. I'm just putting it out there because I'm hoping someone has a logical explanation for what I saw because, like I said, I don't believe in this stuff and I would hope that there is a logical explanation for this little boy.

So I went to work and I told a few people what had happened and they were like, 'Maybe it was a statue?' I have to take that road home so by the time I leave work, it's about 12:30 AM and I’m driving on this road. This would be Sunday morning and I’m driving very fast, even though the speed limit's only 35. I’m driving very fast because I do not want to be on this road and I glance over very quickly and that gate to where the entrance to the farm is, it's not closed. There's no little boy there. There's no statue, so he definitely was not a statue. I don't have an explanation for what he was. The thing is though, if he was a real little boy and maybe I'm imagining this, there's nowhere for him to ride that bike. I Googled that road thinking that maybe he was a ghost and to see if a little boy had been killed there. The only thing I got was a man who had been killed there. He was a grown man though. He had been hit by a car, but that's the thing, it's so dangerous for a pedestrian on that road.” LT

Fisherman Startled By SASQUATCH ENCOUNTER Along Lake Oroville, California Shore

A fisherman comes within 25 feet of a Sasquatch while at McCabe's Cove on Lake Oroville, California. It seems that the creature was watching him until it realized that it had been seen.

The following account was recently forwarded to me:

"I once came within 25 feet of a Sasquatch deep in McCabe's Cove on Lake Oroville, California. It was spring 1976 and I was fishing along the shore. The water level was up very high into the brush so I had to hike around several dense areas. As I was making my way around some thick brush I was focused on the ground in front of me and testing the grass with my fishing rod because I was nervous about rattlesnakes. I came into a small clearing where the heavy brush began to give way to small tan oaks and larger trees, and there I happened to look up to get my bearings before going further. It took me a couple of seconds to process what I was seeing.

Standing in front of me at about 10 o'clock I saw a large hairy creature standing as still as a statue. I guessed it was about 7 feet tall, very heavy set, with somewhat sloping shoulders. I sensed immediately that it was hiding among the backdrop of the forest waiting for me to pass unaware. As soon as it realized that I saw it, the creature bolted upright, turned, and ran through the dense forest. I was in shock and awe, my heart was racing. I quickly ran to where the beast had been standing. Looking around I could see several indistinct tracks, and in the direction where it ran, it had blasted a whole right through the forest.

At the time I didn't think about trying to gather evidence. I was pretty frightened and my adrenaline was high, so I ran a 1/4 mile up the steep hillside to the road and then back to where I'd parked. Later I researched some old news clippings at the Oroville library and discovered that there had been other sightings in the region going back to the 1940s, in particular a case on Table Mountain where an entire family was frightened away from their homestead.

In 1976 the area where I saw the Sasquatch connected to a much larger section of a very remote and dense forest of maybe 100 or so square miles. I don't know what the lay of the land is these days, but I've often thought about going there on a backpacking adventure. I've only recently started checking out Bigfoot videos, and I discovered that one of the common warning behaviors is to stomp their foot. When I described how the Sasquatch "bolted upright." Now that I think of it, it was more of a sudden stomp with one or both feet before it turned and ran. I recall how it kind of shook the ground. There were a lot of tracks all in about a one-meter spot where it had been standing. I think it had been standing in that same spot for several minutes watching me, maybe curious about what I was doing. I had been casting along the shore, and then I was testing the grass with my fishing pole. The Sasquatch might have considered my behavior interesting." NG

NOTE: In recent years, Lake Oroville has been devastated by the drought. Lon

TIC TAC-SHAPED UAP / UFO Recorded Over US 12 in Wisconsin (VIDEO)

A Wisconsin family observes and records a Tic Tac or missle-shaped UAP/UFO while traveling west on US 12 toward Madison. The object eventually fades and vanishes.

"Hi Lon, I am attaching a video that my wife shot last Friday (10/28/22) while we were traveling from Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin to Madison, Wisconsin. I was with my wife and two teenage children. While traveling approximately 60 mph, going towards Madison (I assume it was US 12 west), we saw a strange object in the sky that looked as though it was floating or moving slowly across the sky, at a high altitude. There was no noise associated with the object. It was a small cigar or "Tic Tac" shaped object, chrome or white in color with a black area on one side. I am not familiar with any known aerial vehicle that this could be. I could be wrong (with all the flying vehicles that are in the sky nowadays), but this seemed very unnatural. Another strange thing is that it shrank down in size. This did not seem like it was due to moving farther away. It seemed to actually "morph" into a smaller object. I will attach the video. Sorry about the background talking and noise. We were all excited and taken aback by the situation. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, JM"

RED-EYED CRYPTID or Entity Follows Investigator Home From Research Area (VIDEO)

The following video was acquired in an undisclosed private wooded location in Missouri. The witness has been involved with Bigfoot research and maintains a research area nearby.

VIDEO - unknown red-eyed cryptid or entity on private property in Missouri

The witness (Jake) states that he believes that he was followed home by a 'red-eyed' cryptid. The video was recorded on Jake's family property.


Jake does narrate the video, some of which I have transcribed:

"I was letting my dog out and I had my camera with me. I glanced up for just a short moment and I got a glimpse of something red and shiny back towards the woods in my backyard. I was alone during this entire time, just out there with my dog. I'm going to estimate the distance at about 100 feet, maybe a little less."


"I believe that whatever it was, a Bigfoot or Dogman, followed me bAck from my research area."

Take a look at the video and listen to the narration. Lon
