Datebook: September 12 - Flatwoods Monster Sighted 60 Years Ago

Sep 12, 2012

An alleged alien or cryptid was reported sighted on this day in 1952 in Flatwoods, West Virginia. Some said it was a large, pulsating ball of light - others say it was ten-feet tall with a red, glowing face and green body, with stubby arms and long fingers, wearing a dark pleated skirt. Some suggest it was just a barn owl... A freaky alien barn owl.

It’s Wednesday, September 12
