Winged creature seen by attendees to Lollapalooza in Chicago, Illinois.

My friend and I were attending Lollapalooza last Sunday in Chicago Illinois. As the concert ended and we were walking back to the hotel we saw what looked like a giant bat flying just above the Treetops in the park. As we walked into a clearing we saw that this thing had landed and was looking directly at us with a pair of glowing red eyes, these eyes brightly lit and were a brilliant red. We both screamed which attracted the attention of a few people who ran up to us and saw this thing. This thing then spread its wings open and shot straight up into the air.
It flew above the Treetops and then disappeared into the darkness of the night. The strange thing, asides from this creature was that the park was absolutely silent after it left. No birds were heard, not even the sound of the city around us just a bunch of scared people trying to make heads or tails of what the hell we saw.

The creature was approximately 7 ft tall and was completely black. It had a pair of red eyes that glowed and when its wings spread open it must have been at least 10 ft across. These wings did not look like they had feathers but instead looked like what a giant bat’s wings would look like. It made no sound other than the sound of flapping once he got airborne and it was gone within four to five seconds.
* A follow-up interview was conducted by UFO Clearinghouse investigator and the following information has been posted below*

The witness states that they left the Lollapalooza grounds at approximately 9:30 p.m. they were one of the last ones to leave in order to allow the crowds to thin out and make it easier to traverse to the hotel.

The witness and her girlfriend both reported that they were both talking and walking when they notice something fly overhead. At first they paid no attention and assumed it was just a large bird. They continued walking for approximately 150 yd when they notice the creature in a clearing in the park. They stated that the creature looked like it was hunched over something when it noticed them and they were able to look at it face to face. They both agreed that it was about 5 seconds later that a group of people came up from behind and also saw the creature. They were all pointing and some were even shouting at it. It was at this point that the creature unfolded its wings and took off into the air. Both witnesses described the wings as membrane like just like a bats and about 7 – 10 ft wide from tip to tip. They say the creature shot up into the air with minimal effort and what’s gone within seconds.

When asked specific questions meant to misdirect both witnesses stuck with the story they submitted. Neither tried to embellish and both specifically stated the day we’re sober and fully aware of their surroundings. Neither witness reported any adverse effects following the encounter or the subsequent days after.

Large Flying entity seen near Ohio Street Beach in Chicago, Illinois

**This report was emailed to UFOCH by a witness**

I wish to report an incident that I had on Thursday had about 7:30 p.m. in Chicago. I was out walking my dog and was watching storm clouds as they were coming in. It was then that I saw what I can only describe as a big owl that was in the sky above the lake just offshore of Ohio street beach. It was flying in a circular pattern and look like it was riding thermals as it was not using its wings much to keep it aloft but only gliding. I watched it for about a minute before it dipped down toward the shore and was out of sight.

I waited around for about 5 minutes even walking the half block over toward Lake Shore Drive to see if I could maybe see something from that vantage point. I saw nothing else and then headed home as there was a storm approaching and did not want to be caught outside in the rain. I had heard a lot stories regarding these sightings but never thought I would have one myself.
I did not see a lot of details other than it was a black thing with wings. It was large as it stood out against the sky and you could tell that it was using its wings in flight. I try to rule out a larger than normal seagull or maybe somebody hang-gliding, but none seemed to fit what I had seen.
I’m  reporting this to you to add to your growing list sightings within the city. I asked that I do not be contacted in regards to this or that my name not is used. The reason being that I work for the city of Chicago within city government as administrative staff and do not want this to get out and potentially jeopardizing my job. I am very sincere in my sighting and wish to share it with you but cannot risk losing what has taken many years to accomplish.
I can tell you that these sightings have not gone unnoticed and have garnered much attention but there are powers to be that do not want the increasing number of sightings to jeopardize the summer and potentially scare away tourist but please know that these sightings have not gone unnoticed within City Hall.
Thank you for your time and your attention and I hope that my siding helps add a piece to the puzzle of what is going on in this city.

Flying entity seen flying over Irving Park Road in Chicago, Illinois 

At approx 6:35pm today, I saw a flying object in the distance. Its wings were not flapping much and it was coasting – there was a storm approaching, but this was going in the opposite direction of the wind. 

I saw it from the 2400 block of Irving Park Rd and it looked as though it was around Montrose and Campbell or maybe a bit further north.

** an investigator has already made contact with the witness and we are waiting for further information. Once information is obtained we will be posting to the website**

Sighting Details

We have just moved to Colorado and wanted to visit the red rocks area. on the way to the amphitheater, i had the passenger side window rolled-down and I was taking pictures from my cell phone. i was taking random pictures of the mountains in the distance because i liked the way the clouds were hanging over the mountains. it wasn’t until we got home and i was looking through all of our pictures that i noticed a very bizarre looking circular object in one of our pictures. i zoomed out on the picture and all i could say was,”what is that?” i sent the picture to my daughter and to another friend, who is interested in the unknown and they both said i need to inquire about this. i’m very curious about what this could be. i did not take this picture because i saw the object, but after seeing what i caught on my camera, i’m glad i did not actually witness this object because this caught me off guard and caused me to gasp.

I observed at first only one after closing up for the evening, 9:00 is when i noticed the first one, very bright and starting to turn toward the south, they all came from the same location but came into view at different times, the sighting lasted approx. 35 minutes and was viewed from a total of three different vantage points, at times there were 5 in view, all moving west and then south and gaining altitude before they were out if sight. the objects were a bright orange and they pulsated, all were alike in size and color, i was filming with an iphone to capture what i was watching. i was amazed there were so many, all following the same flight path. and at 10:30 i saw another traveling south and accelerating out of sight.

I was out side my house talking with my bro in law who is a ufo skeptic.It was 933 pm on aug-2-2017.He started going crazy saying look.So i did and i said get your camera going i started snapping shots i took a quick video and he got a video as well. so we witnessed this craft blinking red and then white lights kind of like a helicopter but moved erratically or suddenly fast then stop then slowly moved back another way .I started waving my arms and then the thing turned blue just blue not blinking but a slight glow and it moved a cross a small area steady then back and landed like Apollo on the moon.In my video im saying look it changed to blue but the object is still red and white blinking lights after the fact. so there is a strange anomaly.Also, there’s a slight pic of my face and I wasn’t behind a window or there was nothing to reflect my image back.I was filming over a fence in open air. after zooming in on pics i can see two alien heads with eyes looking towards us.And another pic zoomed in looks like an et straight out of the et movie slightly laid back flying this craft.Also a couple months ago i witnessed a red orb alot closer flying over the park and it moved crazy zig zag patterns.I tried to snap shots but my camera would not snap the pics.It was frozen.I turned back and told my brother in law look he said i was crazy and i looked back it was far away little red dot. and no one believed me until aug 2 when he showed me to look in the sky and we were amazed at what we saw and after zooming in pics even more amazed.My brother in law is not a skeptic anymore. i was excited and would love to make contact.I’m very interested in them.

Sighting Details

Stepping out my front door at approx. 9:55pm cst to smoke a cigarette and investigate what my two dogs were barking at. the moon was bright at approx. 20degrees above the horizon, and the sky was completely clear when i noticed a bright white oblong/rod object hovering directly parallel to the west (facing north) of the moon. i thought it might have been tired eyes or the like so i didn’t think anything of it until i noticed it definitely wasn’t a cloud. stared roughly for two minutes. i then ran inside to get my phone to take a video and when i returned approx. 30-40 seconds later the object had moved up about 5degrees and moved directly above the moon which was at about 20 degrees, i would say it was at 23-25 degrees above horizon. i then watched it move in a southwestern direction for about 30 seconds as it hovered onto the opposing side of the moon (west from vantage point) and to an angle of 23-25 degrees above horizon, almost parallel with the moon again. as it moved farther away from the moon it seemed to speed up while simultaneously the bright white light faded and the object hovered again for approx. 8-10 seconds then disappeared.
