WINGED HUMAN-SHAPED FIGURE Seen Flying Near Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado

A couple were lying in their backyard at night stargazing. They observed, what they believed was, a human-shaped figure with wings flying near Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado.

I received the following account:

"I was referred to you by a friend. I've been looking for answers and thought that I'd ask you. This was around September or October of 2017. My fiance and I loved sitting in our backyard and enjoying the scenery. We live near Cheyenne Mountain in El Paso County, Colorado. We had seen some weird unexplainable stuff on the top of the mountain. Once we were watching what we thought was a hiker before he ran towards the edge of a cliff and seemingly flew off the edge. This kind of stuff was the other half of why we loved sitting in our backyard and just watching the mountain and observing the sky.

Back to the story. With all the strangeness, this by far was the most unexpected and unexplainable. One night, around 10pm-12am we were up late and felt like lying out back and stargazing. We dragged the dog's bed outside and threw a few blankets on top so we could lay on it. It was always windy, we lived at the base of a mountain so this was a part of life. We also had a flood wash behind our house (with a little running trail) that made our yard even more windy. As we watched the clouds pass under the stars, something large and humanoid glided over us.

It looked like a man with wings, it did not flap, just glided over silently, I would say about 3000 feet up (I am estimating this based on the height of the mountain) I am not sure but it looked like it was at about the height of the mountain peak, below the clouds, gliding above our house, south, parallel to the mountain ridge. It was silhouetted against the clouds, the city lights barely illuminated it but I could clearly make out the shape of a man with wings.

My original thought was a hang glider, but it was super late at night and as far as I know, you don't just jump off of random mountains to do this, there are designated flying zones and you have to log quite a bit of flight hours to be able to fly alone.

I also thought it was a vampire or gargoyle, but again I have not heard any legends or stories from this area.

I have done a bit of research and my new thought is that someone may have released a flying fox? I looked up videos of them flying and they seem smaller than what I saw, but maybe someone had one that got too big and they let it loose. I have had friends that have exotic pet birds, cats, or monkeys so I could see this happening. They seem like they need to flap a lot though, but I guess if it were higher up it would not need to so much. It had such a smooth, straight flight path it gave me doubts. This still seems like the most reasonable explanation. But, then again, with the sightings in Chicago and other places, I wonder if this winged humanoid phenomenon may be real." M

NOTE: I responded to the witness. It's difficult to assess what they may have witnessed. If anyone in the Colorado Springs area has seen something similar, please contact me. Lon
