Mothman Sighting




I don't know whether this is real or fake because it was pictures slideshow and I can't say its fake or real. I grabbed the video from Youtube.com. It depends on you whether you want to believe it or not because we haven't seen the real footage of Mothman recently. But many people connect Mothman with bad predictions (when we see mothman, bad things will happen in a few minutes after that) and some say Mothman is Angel of Death. Until now, we do not know about the existence of Mothman.

Mothman Analysis




There are several theories concerning the Mothman phenomenon.


A large collection of first-hand material about the Mothman is found in John Keel's 1975 book The Mothman Prophecies, in which Keel lays out the chronology of the Mothman and what he claims to be related parapsychological events in the area, including UFO activity, Men in Black encounters, poltergeist activity, Bigfoot and black panther sightings, animal and human mutilations, precognitions by witnesses, and the December 15, 1967 collapse of the Silver Bridge spanning the Ohio River.

Keel's first book was the basis of a 2002 film, The Mothman Prophecies, starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Debra Messing and Will Patton, directed by Mark Pellington. A companion book called the The Eighth Tower, also released in 1975, was derived from material edited from The Mothman Prophecies by the publishers.

In conjunction with Sony/Screen Gems, cryptozoologist Loren Coleman claims to have served as one of the movie's publicity spokespersons, discussing his interpretation of the Mothman events in Mothman and Other Curious Encounters. Coleman created and hyped something called the "Mothman Curse", whereby researchers would be targeted for death adding more to the list in April 2007. Coleman's writings claim that early eyewitnesses never described a "moth" but a large bird. However, the only withness to date who still claims this description seems to be Tom Ury. Witnesses such as Faye DeWitt, Marcella Benett, and Linda Scarberry have repeatedly stated on national TV that the Mothman was half human.

Andy Colvin, a photographer and documentary filmmaker who claims to have seen the Mothman, has produced to books and a reality series on Mothman called The Mothman's Photographer, featuring John Keel and almost 50 witnesses. Colvin's sister took a snapshot of him in 1973 that allegedly shows a Garuda in the background. After researching various forms of Buddhism and certain Native tribes, Colvin's series proposes that both the Garuda of the Far East and the Thunderbird of the Native Americans are synonymous with Mothman, and that Mothman may be an archetypal "guardian angel" who exposes criminal activity at pivotal moments by sending visions, dreams and messages to ordinary humans. The Mothman's Photographer presents evidence that Mound, WV, witnesses separately saw the Mothman, aliens, the Dover Demon, the Virgin Mary, plasma figures, "intelligent", globes of light, and the Flatwoods monster in the same location.

One of the early theories is that the Mothman was a misidentified Sandhill Crane, which, in th elate 1960s had been a problem in surrounding regions. Sandhill Cranes can reach a height of 6 feet, achieve wingspans of 10 feet, have the general appearance described, glide for long distances without flapping and have an unusual shriek. Other recent theories suggest the possibility of the Mothman being a barn owl, an albino owl or perhaps a large Snowy Owl (based on artist's impressions of the mysterious, flying animal). Skeptics suggest that the Mothman's glowing eyes are actually red-eye caused from the reflection of light, from flashlights or other light sources that witnesses may have had with them.

The word "Mothman" was an invention by an Ohio newspaper copyeditor, after the first news stories of the "Big Bird" sightings appeared. (Taken from: wikipedia.org)

Mothman History




On November 15, 1966, two young married couples from Point Pleasant, named David and Linda Scarberry, and Steve and Mary Mallette, were travelling late-night in the Scarberry's car. They were passing the West Virginia Ordnance Works, an abandoned World Wat II TNT factory, about seven miles north from Point Pleasant, in the 2,500 acre McClintic Wildlife Station, when they noticed two red lights in the shadows by an old generator plant near the factory gate. The stopped the car, and were startled to discover that the lights were actually the glowing red eyes of a large animal. Terrified, they drove toward Route 62, where the creature supposedly chased them at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. However, as quoted in Keel's The Mothman Prophecies, the Scarberrys, despite driving more than 100 miles per hour, claimed to have noticed a dead dog on the side of the road, and in fact made such accurate note of its location that they have claimed to have gone back the very next day and looked for it. Explanations for how they were able to make so accurate a mental note at a time of such great distress, or why they would go back to look for the dead dog, are not included in Keel's book.

A plaque on the Mothman statue provides a version of the original legend: "On a chilly, fall night in November 1966, two young couples drove into the TNT area north of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, when they realized they were not alone." Driving down the exit road, they saw the supposed creature standing on a nearby ridge. It spread its wings and flew alongside the vehicle up to the city limits. They drove to the Mason County courthouse to alert Deputy Millard Halstead, who later said, "I've known these kids all their lives. They'd never been in any trouble and they were really scared that night. I took them seriously." He then followed Roger Scarberry's car back to the secret ex-U.S. Federal bomb and missile factory, but found no trace of the strange creature. According to the book Alien Animals, by Janet and Colin Bord, a poltergeist attack on the Scarberry home occurred later that night, during which the creature was seen several times.

The following night, on November 16,several armed townspeople combed the area around the TNT plant for signs of Mothman. Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Wamsley, and Mrs. MarcellaBennett, with her baby daughter eena in tow, were in a car en-route to visit their friends, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Thomas, who lived in a bungalow among the "igloos" (concrete dome-shaped dynamite storage structures erected during WW-II) near the TNT plant. The igloos were now empty, some owned by the county, others by companies intending to use them for storage. They were heading back to their car when a figure appeared behind their parked vehicle. Mrs. Bennett said that it seemed like it had been lying down, slowly rising up from the ground, large and gray, with glowing red eyes. While Wamsley phoned the police, the creature walked onto the porch and peered in at them through the window.

On November 24, four people saw the creature flying over the TNT area. On the morning of November 25, Thomas Ury, who was driving along Route 62 just north of the TNT, claimed to have seen the creature standing in a field, and then it spread its wings and flew alongside his car as he sped toward the Point Pleasant sheriff's office.

On November 26, Mrs Ruth Foster of Charleston, West Virginia reportedly saw Mothman standing on her front lawn, but the creature was gone by the time her brother-in-law went out to investigate. Further, on the morning of November 27, the creature apparently pursued a young woman near Mason, West Virginia, and was reported again in St.Albans the same night, by two children.

A Mothman sighting was again reported on January 11, 1967, and several other times that same year. Fewer sightings of the Mothman were reported after the collapse of the Silver Bridge, when 46 people died. The Silver Bridge, so named for its aluminum paint, was an eyebar chain suspension bridge that connected the cities of Point Pleasant, West Virginia and Kanauga, Ohio over the Ohio River. The Bridge was built in 1928, and it collapsed on December 15, 1967. Investigation of the bridge wreckage pointed to the failure of a single eye-bar in a suspension chain due to a small manufacturing flaw.

Mothman



Mothman
is the name given to a being reported in the Charleston and Point Pleasant areas of West Virginia between November 12, 1966, near Clendenin, and December 1967. Most observers describe the Mothman as a winged man-sized creature with large reflective red eyes and large moth-like wings. The creature often appeared to have no head, with its eyes set into its chest. A number of hypotheses have been presented to explain eyewitnesses accounts, ranging from misidentification and coincidence, to paranormal phenomena and conspiracy theories.

The Mystery Of The Bermuda Triangle



The disappearane of US Navy flight 19 is still the most astounding mystery associated with the Bermuda triangle. Taken from TV show: "FirstScience presents: The Bermuda Triangle" available at FirstScience.tv.

The Devil's Triangle



Many theories have been given to explain the extraordinary mystery of these missing ships and planes. Evil extraterrestrials, residue crystals from Atlantis, evil humans with anti-gravity devices or other weird technologies, and vile vortices from the fourth dimension are favorites among fantasy writers. Strange magnetic fields and oceanic flatulence (methane gas from the bottom of the ocean) are favorites among the technically-minded. Weather )thunderstorms, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, high waves, currents, etc) bad luck, pirates, explosive cargoes, incompetent navigators, and other natural and human causes are favorites among skeptical investigators.

There are some skeptics who argue that the facts do not support the legend, that there is no mystery to be solved, and nothing that needs explaining. The number of wrecks in this area is not extraordinary, given its size, location and the amount of traffic it receives. Many of the ships and planes that have been identified as having disappeared mysteriously in the Bermuda Triangle were not in the Bermuda Triangle at all. Investigations to date have not produced scientific evidence of any unusual phenomena involved in the disappearances. Thus, any explanation, including so-called scientific ones in terms of methane gas being released from the ocean floor, magnetic disturbances, etc, are not needed. The real mystery is how the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery at all.

In conclusion, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery by a kind of communal reinforcement among uncritical authors and a willing mass media to uncritically pass on the speculation that something mysterious is going on in the Atlantic.

The Triangle area



The boundaries of the Triangle vary with the author, some stating its shape is akin to a trapezoid covering the Straits of Florida, the Bahamas, and the entire Caribbean island area east to the Azores; others add to it the Gulf of Mexico. The more familiar, triangular boundary in most written works has as its points somewhere on the Atlantic coast of Florida; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and the mid-Atlantic island of Bermuda, with most of the accidents concentrated along the southern boundary around the Bahamas and the Florida Straits.

The area is one of the most heavily-sailed shipping lanes in the world, with ships crossing through it daily for ports in the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean Islands. Cruise ships are also plentiful, and pleasure craft regularly go back and forth between Florida and the islands. It is also a heavily flown route for commercial and private aircraft heading towards Florida, the Caribbean, and South America from points north.

The Gulf Stream ocean current flows through the Triangle after leaving the Gulf of Mexico; its current of five to six knots may have played a part in a number of disappearances. Sudden storms can do appear, and in the summer to late fall hurricanes strike the area. The combination of heavy maritime traffic and tempestuous weather makes it inevitable that vessels could founder in storms and be lost without a trace (especially before improved telecommunications, radar, and satellite technology arrive late in the 20th century.

Bermuda Triangle



The Bermuda Triangle is a strange and mysterious place in the southern Atlantic Ocean. It is roughly the shape of a triangle and it is said to have sucked planes and boats into its dark and murky waters. No one knows what happened to the planes and boats. When some enter the waters of the triangle they disappear forever.

In my opinion, people tend to think its a mysterious place where every objects that pass-by the area will be disappeared or in theory, sucked by mysterious force. For me, yes it is mysterious but logically its normal for the natural environment, but just because we were new with that kind of thing we curiously want to know or discover what's the hidden part?I mean we want to know what's the inside of the bermuda triangle. Why its triangle because if we look it from the map or radar (or what so ever), the shape is triangle.

But who knows one day people will uncover the hidden truth of the Bermuda Triangle.

The Bermuda Triangle



The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region of the northwestern Atlantic Ocean in which a number of aircraft and surface vessels have disappeared. Some people have claimed that these disappearances fail beyond the boundaries of human error or acts of nature. Some of these disappearances have been attributed to the paranormal, a suspension of the laws of physics, or activity by extraterrestrial beings by popular culture. Though a substantial documentation exists showing numerous incidents to have been inaccurately reported or embellished by later authors, and numerous official agencies have gone on record as stating the number and nature of disappearances to be similar to any other area of ocean, many have remained unexplained despite considerable investigation.
