RED-EYED MOTHMAN Encountered in Roanoke, Virginia Area Parking Lot

A man, his girlfriend, and her son were moving to another state. They stopped in a Roanoke, Virginia area parking lot to rest. That is when they encountered a creature that deeply disturbed them.

I received the following account:

"This did not happen to me, but to a friend of mine. While I can't say with 100% certainty that he saw the Mothman, I do honestly believe him that he saw something out of the ordinary. When this came up, he knew nothing about the legend of the Mothman. It wasn't until later when a Mothman Prophecies movie came out that he decided to look into it and noticed all the similarities.

What happened to him was, he and his girlfriend and her son were moving from one state to the other. I remember that it was a few weeks after 9/11. They were in the Roanoke, Virginia area at the time of the encounter. This particular night, they pulled over in a parking lot to sleep. They actually had two vehicles with them, one was driving the car and the other was following with the U-Haul.

At one point he got out of the car and went to the U-Haul to get something out of the back. That's when he heard his girlfriend screaming. There was a tall dark figure hovering over the car where she and her son were inside, and it seemed to be looking into the windows and poking or scratching at the glass. When my friend shined a flashlight on it, he said he saw squinting red eyes and it was gone with a flash. It ended up landing on a tall branch in the tree line, and it was looking back at them with round red glowing eyes. He watched it for a minute, then he said it darted straight up into the sky and took off. It never flapped its wings, it just took off like a rocket faster than any living thing on Earth.

He was incredibly shaken up by this encounter, and so was his girlfriend. He said that their relationship was never the same after this and that she changed. I had a deep interest in the Mothman that I kept pressing him for details but you could tell it really upset him." L
