Hi, I saw that you were keeping a timeline of “batman” sightings in Chicago. My friend and I just saw something in Albany Park/Lincoln Square, about half an hour ago (10:30 pm), and I’m not sure who to report it to.
It was a huge black shape that appeared to be gliding high over the Wilson/Kimball area. We viewed it from my balcony about half a mile north of there. We observed it gliding for about 2 minutes before it was lost in the clouds, headed south. It looked somewhat like a bat and that’s what I thought it was at first, but it was just too big! It was hard to tell exactly how big from that distance, but I would guess about an 8 foot wingspan.
We’re pretty spooked by it. Let me know if you have any advice about who we should report this to.
The witness was contacted by a UFOCH investigator and the following information regarding the sighting was submitted.
On July 29th at 10:30 PM, my friend and I were sitting on my third floor balcony, facing south. I live in Albany Park, at Drake and Argyle. We weren’t doing anything in particular, just enjoying the evening and chatting, both of us 100% sober. We noticed the large black shape in the sky to the south. It appeared to glide East and then West, possibly circling, for about a minute. Then it turned South and we lost it in the clouds. I climbed up to my roof for a better view and watched it get smaller until I couldn’t see it anymore. My friend attempted to take a video, but as it was dark out, nothing could be seen in the video. Whatever it was, I seriously doubt it noticed us as it was quite far away. I believe it may have been following the river.
My friend and I worked together on this drawing to describe the general shape of the thing. No detail could be seen- the shape appeared to be completely black.
The witness has written us back and provided us with the video that they shot. She provided a quick update on where on the video the entity is supposed to be.
“Here’s the video. Sorry it’s only a few seconds- she quickly realized she couldn’t see anything on the screen and chose to watch with her eyes.
