Another sighting report of the Chicago/UIC Mothman

Posted on October 14, 2011 at 9:10 PM

I am currently attending university in Chicago , Illinois and I wanted to respond to the informational flyers about recent events involving the large bat-like creatures. I was enjoying an evening with my girlfriend and taking a well deserved break from my studies. We decided to go out and enjoy the unusually warm weather that we were having and go for a walk. As we walked toward a community park near the campus, we were talking about our classes when a commotion amongst a group of people caught our attention. As we looked toward the group of about 4-5 people, something caught my eye and I looked up to see this thing fly overhead.

It looked like a man; it looked like a man with wings! He flew about 10-12 feet above us and was perfectly silhouetted against the evening sky. In all honesty, it looked like an immensely oversized Sugar Glider, the kind I would see back home in Tasmania . It had the rough shape of a sugar glider, but its eyes were nothing like the soft eyes of a glider. They glowed red! We saw it for about 4 seconds before it disappeared from view. At first I thought I saw a man in a hang glider, but it was those bloody eyes that made me thing otherwise!

I at first thought of ringing someone, but I didn’t want them to think I had gone crazy. To say that I was Gobsmacked would have been an understatement

Meh, I dunno. Read this report as if someone is speaking it to you...see what I mean? There's all this extraneous and irrelevant descriptive information, as if it's a novel.."(W)ell deserved break"; "unusually warm weather"; "in all honesty" (why this? Is what has gone before been a lie?!)

It's too polished, too formal, too "schoolie". It's not at all natural, and comes of to me as a concoction. And then there's the "Tasmania" angle, which I think is overworked, particularly the "Gobsmacked", which is not capitalized and is a UK in origin and use, not from Oz or NZ. And everyone knows that Chicago is an education mecca for Tasmanians, right? I don't think so.

Someone who really experienced what is reported would instinctively concentrate on the details of the sighting, which are really secondary here to all the "color". I think the "witness" is an undergraduate having a laugh.
