Mystical Night Research

Researching the Paranormal since 2002

“A friend of mine had moved south, to work with his uncle. Things didn’t work out, so he called and wanted to know if I would pick him up, at the bus station, in Springfield. I told him, “Sure.” The day he came back, his bus wasn’t due until 1:30 AM. When it showed up, he was starving, so we headed up the road to Steak and Shake. While we were eating, some girls showed up, after a night of partying. We stayed around and talked with them for a while. Well, by the time we left, Brian wanted to see if we could swing by one of his old girlfriend’s houses before she went to work. He wanted to see if he could stay with her for a while. I didn’t have anything to do the next day, so I told him that would be fine. She lived in Assumption. To get there, we headed back to Taylorville.

The object appeared to be somewhat high in the sky, but with the trees so close and all around, I couldn’t see it. Continue reading

Date of sighting: Aug 9, 2007, approximately 11 PM

While standing outside facing south and looking up at the sky, I heard a loud roar over my right shoulder and turned to look. Out of nowhere, a triangle-shaped object appeared, and at the same time, the roar stopped. The object was completely silent for the duration of the sighting. It passed over a tree which was west of me by about 40 feet and north of me about 50 feet, and it cleared the 60-foot tree by about 30 feet. The sky was dark, though not black, and airplanes (with running lights on) could be easily seen flying at high altitudes. There were no planes at low altitudes. Continue reading
