The Eerie Enigma of the Mothman

A terrifying man-bird hybrid of sorts with glowing red eyes. That is the common description of the creature christened “The Mothman” by the press, named after a character from the popular Batman television series. Since its first reported sighting back in 1966, many subsequent reports and wild speculations have ensued. However, conclusive photographic evidence or proof of this creature’s existence remains elusive to date.

 

Where It All Began…

The creature was first sighted on 12 November 1966 at a cemetery in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The five men who were preparing a burial site on that fateful day all swore they saw a grey, winged, man-like creature with large glowing red eyes located at what would normally be the creature’s chest flying over them. It was described to be about six feet tall and wider than a man. This first report marked the beginning of the Mothman enigma.

Things began to heat up three days later, when the media picked up the second reported sighting of the Mothman. Filed on 15 November 1996 by two young couples from Point Pleasant, namely Roger and Linda Scarberry as well as Steve and Mary Mallette, they collectively claimed to have seen a “large creature roughly the size of a ten-foot flying man with wings and glowing red eyes”, when they were exploring an area outside town known as “the TNT Area”, the site of a former World War II munitions plant.

Interestingly, all four unanimously maintained that those glowing red eyes had a “hypnotising” effect on them. In fact, they only awoke from their stupor when the creature made a sudden, mad dash towards an open door in the plant. With fear registering and adrenaline kicking in, all four ran back to their car and sped towards town.

As they were making their escape, the creature or one very similar to it came back and gave chase. It was flying low and kept up with the car despite them accelerating. It only stopped its pursuit when they hit town. According to the couples, upon nearing the town, the creature suddenly backed off, dropped the chase and flew away in the opposite direction.

It is speculated that the creature might have decided to cut its losses and go back for the body of the dead dog near the city limits which the couples recalled seeing during their frantic escape. Intriguingly, not only did the investigating police officer fail to come across any dead dog, he also encountered strange problems with his radio. When he arrived on site, it began emitting such loud screeching sounds that he had to turn it off.

The unidentified dog was widely linked to Newell Partridge, who also reported experiencing strange unexplained phenomenon at the outskirts of Pleasant Point on the same fateful day of 15 November 1966. According to Partridge’s report, his television went berserk at around 10:30pm. The screen abruptly went blank for a few seconds before emitting a loud sharp whining noise followed by the sudden display of herringbone patterns. At the same time, he heard his dog, Bandit, howling non-stop on the porch. It was very unusual for Bandit to howl continuously unless there was something disturbing outside since he was a big German Shepherd trained as a guard and hunting dog.

Assuming that it was a wild animal intruding, Partridge picked up his gun and headed out to the porch. Seeing Bandit run towards the family’s barn, about 150 yards away, Partridge followed suit. It was there where he saw “two circle-like eyes” glowing red through the night, prompting him to run back and take cover in his house.

Venturing out at daylight, he only found Bandit’s tracks in a circular pattern, indicating that he had probably gone round and round barking at something in the air. Bandit was never seen again and his disappearance remains unsolved.

After the second report, the police and media were inundated with an influx of depositions and testimonies of similar encounters with the Mothman. The following are but a few examples of sightings within the first year:

  • 18 November: Two firemen, Paul Yoder and Ben Enochs reported sighting the Mothman in the TNT Area.
  • 21 November: Richard West, from Charleston, reported seeing a six-foot tall figure with a wingspan of six to eight feet and red eyes perched on top of his neighbour’s roof. It remained there for a while before taking off straight up, “like a helicopter.”
  • 25 November: Tom Ury reported spotting the Mothman while he was driving along Route 62, near the TNT Area. It was early morning when he saw a large, greyish figure standing in a field before it suddenly lifted straight into the air and flew over his car.
  • 26 November: Ruth Foster of St. Albans reported having sighted the Mothman standing in her yard near her porch. Interestingly, her description of the Mothman was similar to that of Richard West.
  • 27 November: Connie Carpenter reported seeing a greyish bird-like humanoid figure standing on the golf course near Mason when she was on her way home from church before it too flew away.
  • 4 December: Five pilots at Gallipolis airport in Ohio reportedly saw a giant grey bird flying at about 70mph. Its wings were not moving and it had a longish neck.

By late 1966, the number of reported Mothman sightings were steadily dwindling. In fact, official reports of Mothman sightings were few and far between, especially after the collapse of the Silver Bridge at Point Pleasant on 15 December 1967. Intriguingly, it was only after the Silver Bridge’s collapse that Mothman sightings extended beyond the borders of Point Pleasant. Mothman sightings began emerging from different parts of the world, along with a disturbing pattern of sightings occurring just before or at major disasters and tragedies.

 

Return of the Mothman?

Although John Keel’s 1975 book “The Mothman Prophecies” and a Richard Gere movie of the same name helped to further the legend of this winged beast, in reality there were no further reported sightings of the Mothman after 1968.

That is, until 20 November 2016 when an unidentified man came forward and released to local news station, WCHS, photographs of what he believed to be the Mothman, taken while he was driving on State Route 2. The station proceeded to air the pictures on 21 November 2016.

As the images were rather grainy and merely showed the silhouette of a two-legged, winged creature flying over the tree tops, some sceptics questioned their authenticity, especially given that the timing of their release was very close to the 50th anniversary of the Mothman myth.

Some have even ventured the opinion that the 2016 photographs were produced with the intention of generating hype and drawing attention to the anniversary.

Possible Theories and Explanations

The Mothman has invoked as many explanations as there are sightings, ranging from the scientific to the radical. The following are but some of the more popular explanations bandied about by sceptics and believers alike:

  • Barn owl: When fully extended, the wingspan of these owls makes them appear larger than they actually are. Their eyes can also appear to be mounted on headless torsos and do reflect a distinctly eerie red when lights shine on them. Thus, many have tried to dismiss the Mothman myth as mistaken sightings of barn owls.
  • Mutated crane: This theory stems from the nature of the Mothman’s lair i.e. the TNT area which is believed to still house secret chemicals. Proponents of this theory claim that the Mothman arose when a crane came into contact with these chemicals and was accidentally subjected to genetic mutation.
  • Secret experiment: The Mothman has been said to be the result of a top secret government experiment at a secret laboratory within the labyrinthine TNT area. This theory has been further compounded with reports of the infamous “Men in Black” visiting witnesses who reported sightings of the Mothman.
  • Aliens: This theory garnered much attention in view of paranormal researcher John Keel’s compilation of strange phenomenon which accompanied sightings of the Mothman. These phenomenon were commonly associated with UFO folklore, such as mysterious energy fields, glowing orbs, weird animal behaviour, disappearances, technological failures, loss of time, and the anonymous “Men in Black”. Many were also swayed by this theory due to the fact that the residents of Point Pleasant were victims of electrical problems.
  • Messenger of Doom: In light of the disasters and tragedies that occurred whenever the Mothman made its appearance, it has been speculated that the creature was either predicting the disastrous events or the one causing them.

The Fascination with the Mothman Enigma Continues…

It is unlikely that the Mothman phenomenon will fade away anytime soon. Regardless of whether you believe in its existence or otherwise, the Mothman is likely to continue attracting public curiosity and attention as can be seen in the following examples:

 

Mothman Statue

In 2003, a 12-foot-tall steel statue of the Mothman, created by artist and sculptor Bob Roach, was unveiled.

The installation of this statue pretty much guarantees that the Mothman will be sticking around for quite a while, at least as a tourist attraction in Point Pleasant.

Address
Fourth St.,
Point Pleasant,
West Virginia 25550.

 

Mothman Festival

The allure of the Mothman culminated in Point Pleasant holding its first Annual Mothman Festival in 2002. It is a two-day event held on the 3rd weekend of September. The festival takes place in the heart of Point Pleasant on historic Main Street, where the famous Mothman Statue and Mothman Museum are.

Festivities include talks by guest speakers, vendor exhibitions, a mothman pancake-eating contest, and hayride tours focusing on notable areas of Point Pleasant.

 

Mothman Museum

Located right next to the Mothman Statue, the Mothman Museum first opened its doors to the public in 2005. It is a one of a kind museum dedicated to all things related to the Mothman. It is open seven days a week (excluding gazetted major holidays in America) and boasts of having the largest collection of props and memorabilia from the movie “The Mothman Prophecies”. It also houses a souvenir store and operates an online store for those who wish to lay their hands on Mothman memorabilia.

    Whether the Mothman is a fictional creature or a real one, I would like to think that it is a localised one as there is no report of sightings else where. This is a creature unique to Pleasant Point, West Virginia only. It must be thrilled for the residents there to know that there is a Mothman living among them. Thank you, Cindy, for this sharing.

  2. Wai Meng Wan on Nov 18, 2017 at 1:21 am

    Mothman is not a cryptid I have encountered in the news before to be honest.

    Equally cryptid is their purpose.

  3. Datuk May on Oct 29, 2017 at 12:57 pm

    There are many mysteries in the world and often there are no concrete evidence to prove their existence beyond reasonable doubts.

    As in most instances, whether you believe or otherwise, it is respect for others’ belief that makes knowledge of such mysteries be known or published for us to just even read out of interest.

    Thank you, Cindy.

    Interesting first time coming across these red-eyed creature. The first recorded Mothman sighting took place on November 12, 1966 and the most recent was in April 2017. The creature of legend whom many dubbed the odd flying creature as the Mothman It seems to be connected to few tragic events some claiming sightings connected with UFOs, and others claiming that a military are doing some experiment. The creature appears to have wings with pointed tips and long legs, bent at an awkward angle.
    Because there have been so many other sighting over the years.it has gained worldwide fame. the legendary creature that inspired the book and film Mothman.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Cindy Hew for such an interesting post.

  7. Freon on Oct 27, 2017 at 2:42 am

    This is the first time i heard about Mothman.

    Most of the sighting happened in USA. But, there are some sighting reported in China.

    In China, the Mothman are call “Tian Er Ren” , and the sighting of Mothman in China happened in year 1926. The sighting spotted by a young boy. But, not much information on China’s Mothman. According to China’s description, the mothman have female and male. Female is more bigger and stronger than the male. And they only appear when there is a disaster happened.

    Thank you Cindy for this article about Mothman.

    What Lama Zopa Teaches About the Dorje Shugden Ban

    FPMT centres today however, no longer rely on Dorje Shugden, on the advice of their current spiritual advisor and spiritual heir of Lama Yeshe, Venerable Lama Zopa. The new FPMT policy to no longer follow the practice of Dorje Shugden is in contrast with Lama Yeshe who was extremely devoted to Dorje Shugden and relied on him until the day he passed. This is something that Lama Zopa himself has previously acknowledged; despite halting the practice at FPMT centres, Lama Zopa said in the past that…….find out more here: http://bit.ly/2Sv5gN4

    As a young boy, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche loved to draw and paint like any other child but unlike most kids, he was especially inspired to paint Buddha images. Whether it was in art class at school or at home during his free time, painting Buddha forms came very naturally to the young Rinpoche who would spend hours sketching, drawing and producing the images, often at the risk of being severely reprimanded by disapproving parents who could not understand his attraction towards Dharma practice, teachings and Buddha forms.

    In 132 A.D., Zhang Heng presented the Han court with the world’s first seismoscope. A 2005 replica was even said to detect earthquakes with the same precision as modern instruments.

    Historical accounts tell of its great accuracy, though its precise design remains a mystery. The outer appearance and functioning is known for certain, but its inner workings remain open to speculation. The replicas have been built on the best guesses from such speculation.

    Congo River Basin mythology, Mokele-mbembe is a water-dwelling entity, sometimes described as a living creature. In the last two centuries, there are many reports and sightings of this long-necked, long-tailed, three-clawed, terrifyingly huge animal residing deep in the Congo River basin of central Africa. Well ,these region is the reputed home of the mokele-mbembe, an amphibious dinosaur-like creature. Many African locals, natives and tribes based on the description, this creatures…….Mokele-Mbembe is most probably a dinosaur family. The reports of these sightings has caught the attention of scientists and researchers. Many expeditions since 1909 till 2006 led by cryptozoologist, researchers and scientist teams from various countries such as America, Britain, Germany , Africa and Japan came to a conclusion that there is no physical evidence of the existence of Mokele-Mbembe. The last expedition was in 2018, the researchers travelling to Congo failed too to conclude the existence of this long necked creatures. Even though the stories of this creature seemed to be unbelievable yet the African natives or local do believed in their existence.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another, which often results in discrimination and prejudice towards people based on their race or ethnicity. Its happen every where against individuals on the basis of their race and beliefs. But it happening more in America which has existed since the colonial era. The US is a multicultural society, but racism against Tibetans still unfortunately exist . Tibetans against Tibetans just because of different beliefs , propitiated a different Dharma protector. Rinpoche has experienced racism while growing up in Howell, New Jersey and later discriminated for the religion which is my Dorje Shugden faith. Sad for the past 20 years Rinpoche and many more Dorje Shugden practitioner have experienced . Due to the ban , disharmony, families , monasteries divided and many more unrecorded incident happened. They were denied services in school, hospitals, restaurants, employment and so forth. Rinpoche has suffered vulgarities, insults and threats as a result of Rinpoche’s faith. All these should not have happen as more people are educated now and they see things differently. But the Tibetans Leadership has ignored it and refused to have a peaceful dialogue . Even HH the Dalai Lama refuses to meet with Dorje Shugden practitioners. No one should have to experience any forms of discrimination due to their race, skin colour, economic background, education and their faith.
    The story of Tenzin Dorjee who is culturally Tibetan tells all, how he fought against the odds to be at peace living in America.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Unacceptable, how can these students have the mind to hurt other people and worse still to their classmate. It is like they do not even have a mind to think that their action will not only hurt but may kill her. It is really scary to think that we as human as become so barbaric and inhumane. Parents should really pay more attention to their children. Bullying behaviour does not just happened over night. Children need to be guided with right values and attitude. In this case, the bullies need to learn their lesson. Serving tea and apologising is not enough. They are responsible for their action and the pain that they brought to the girl.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
