Mothman after 1967?

10 posts in this topic

Mothman sightings were primarily within the time period of Nov. 12th 1966 to Dec 15th 1967, in W. Virginia.

Were there sightings after this time? I was wondering if after the Keel book was popularized years later, if there were any more instances of sightings? Or has there been a genuine absence of encounters ever since?

These would be different from dreamlike encounters or premonitions of the future.

Nothing more than hysteria.  No sightings because mothman isn't real.

Yeah, I suppose I'm more interested in it as folklore, than whether it is real or not. I was curious if the hype from the specific Keel book influenced the spreading of more sighting stories. Or if there were any other times when there was a mass of sightings outside of the '60's ones. The wiki timeline does have a lot of info, of which I'm newly appreciative.

There have been a splattering of reports across most of the u.s. from what I recall, of Mothman like creatures. However they always seem to be one off sightings. Like lizard-men, frogman, and all the other animal / man hybrids that seemingly are spotted once and never seen again

There were quite a few mothman reports from Chicago this year and before.

Can't say if this is the same as the WV reports. There should be a mothman podcast if you look up skeptics monster talk.

These are interesting links. I didn't know about the recent Chicago Sightings until now. The monstertalk podcast is a useful tool.

Also the 'Phantoms and Monsters' site has a listing of those sightings.
