Where did the myth of the Mothman begin?
A Mothman sighting was first reported in 1966 near the small town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. A man-like shadowy figure flew over the heads of five men digging a grave in Clendenin on November 12, that same year. A 10-foot-tall, glowing-red-eyed black figure chased Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette in their cars three days later on November 15. There was also a similar incident near Point Pleasant near a former World War II munitions site called “TNT Area.”
Sightings increased over the next year. The first mention of him in a newspaper came in the Point Pleasant Register on November 16, 1966, with the headline: “Couples See Man-Sized Bird… Creature… Something.” Later an anonymous Ohio newspaper copy editor dubbed him “Moth Man,” likely to sound similar to Batman.
The Mothman was believed to live in a vacant nuclear power plant near town, once home to a top-secret government testing facility for nuclear weapons. Did the government tamper with the Mothman? Weapons testing’s winged manifestation? Legends were created as imaginations ran wild.
