SHIMMERING HUMANOID or 'GLIMMER MAN' Observed on Chicago Neighborhood Street

A shimmering humanoid or 'Glimmer Man' is observed by a teen watching the street below his apartment in Chicago, Illinois. The witness was startled when the being looked at him!

"I live in Chicago, Illinois and I'm in my early twenties. When I was in my teens during the summer here I was looking out my front window one night. Mind you the window was open due to my family living in a rather old apartment building at the time with a less-than-optimal air conditioner.

So I'm looking out the window and I spot this weird area of distortion across the street. At the time for a moment, I thought it was a plastic sheet that had caught onto a bush that was in front of the house there.

However, it moved. Like a person would, just shuffling about on the sidewalk, rippling like a person under a transparent sheet. I looked on in amazement and confusion not knowing what to make of what I was seeing.

However, my amazement came to a halt when I felt the being look at me. It was as if it, like a person felt it was being watched and looked dead at me. I got scared and ran back into the back of the house.

Never seen anything like it since. I know that sounds stupid or like some dumb dream but this happened. This actually happened." O

NOTE: This is not the only time that a shimmering being or 'Glimmer Man' was reported in Chicago. This report was forwarded to me in February 2023 - 'GLIMMER MAN' Recently Observed & Reported by Two Chicago Witnesses. Lon
