Summary: Witness has a sighting of a large red eyed winged entity fly over her house in Bensenville, Illinois after returning home from work.
Current Status: Under Investigation
I had just got home from work on Thursday night at about 10:30 P.M. and had just got out of my car to head into the house on the *Redacted* in Bensenville, Illinois when I heard a strange chirping/clicking sound, it was almost dolphin-like. I stopped in my tracks and started to look around and that is when I saw this large bat fly over my house and yard. It was large with bright glowing red eyes and was thin, the wings were flapping slowly. It must have been at least 40 feet off the ground since it was easily above the house and trees in the neighborhood. I’ve seen bats before but this thing was far, far bigger. It was gone in a few seconds as it flew over my neighbors house and was swallowed up into the night. I had tried to get my phone out and take a picture of it but by the time I got it out of my coat and tried to take a picture it was gone and out of sight as it was flying pretty quickly away. I know I was not the only person who saw it as my neighbors across the street were also looking up at it as it flew over and even asked me the next morning if I had seen it and what I thought it was. I’ve lived here over 12 years and had never seen anything like it, even my husband was skeptical, saying maybe I saw a large goose or crane and the red eyes might have been the reflection of the street lights on the animals eyes. I’m certain of what I saw though.
