New Mothman photographs or at least something many people believe may be the legendary creature was taken by a witness on Sunday evening in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.
According to the witness report, the man was driving along State Route 2 in the evening when he saw something jump from tree to tree. He pulled off the road and was able to take some photos of a creature which seems to have wings and awkwardly angled pointed tipped legs. This new Mothman sighting comes almost 50 years after the first reported sighting of the creature which took place back on November 15,1966.
The West Virginia Mothman legend reached worldwide notoriety after author John Keel published a book called “The Mothman Prophecies” in 1975 which was adapted into a movie starring Richard Gere in 2002. There have been many reported Mothman sightings over the years although there hadn’t been any recently until now. Could these photos actually be a legitimate 2016 Mothman sighting? These Mothman pictures are definitely very interesting although you can be sure many skeptics will be weighing in as to the likelihood of a hoax. So have a look and you can decide for yourself if this is the Point Pleasant Mothman.
