The Mothman is a white-winged, human sized creature, with red eyes, two inches in diameter and six inches apart. Associated with disaster, the Mothman was first reported on November 12, 1966 by five gravediggers. The creature was then seen by a couple in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, and has continually been spotted in this area over the years. On December 17, 1967 the Mothman was accused of causing the Silver Bridge collapse, which killed 46 people. The Mothman has also been sighted in other places around the world such as: Argentina, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Some hypothesize that the Mothman comes from a portal, located in Point Pleasant, that leads to an alternate reality. Whether the Mothman is here to cause harm or warn us of it, is something that remains a mystery.
