Aww man.. I wish cellphones and cameras was invented
I am sure there would be lots of pictures of this entity flying around in Chicago.
Ohh well


When faced with something like a moth man, most people don't usually have "hmmm. I should document the literal demon standing/charging before me for the convenience of scientists." Idk who you think you are but I highly doubt you'd Get a worthwhile picture of it if you even thought to pull out a cell phone. Procuring Photographic evidence isn't a survival instinct

Seems to me if this freak is gonna hang around as a local
warning. He needs to communicate that a little better.
He didn't do much good in point pleasant. Or maybe no
one listens to night phantoms without a cellphonic
emergency terrifying high pitch squelch alert?

IDK

Mothman, Meth Monster what's the difference?

I found the original story interesting though I don't think it's more than fiction.
If some tragedy befalls Chicago soon I guess we can revisit this.

You mean, more tragic than Chicago normally is, where a "good" weekend is when less than a hundred people get shot?

Not all events are conducive to getting a good picture. I can't even tell you how many times I've wanted a pic of a raccoon, or a deer, or something of the sort, and wasn't able to get the camera open and aimed in time.

That's normal. When something happens quickly and unexpectedly, usually the only time it's captured on film is when cameras were already set up (like traffic cameras, for example).

I mean, if Bigfoot breaks down your door, steals you hot dog, and leaves, you simply are not going to have the presence of mind to grab your phone and turn on the video record function in the couple of seconds that elapse before the incident ends

dear god... please tell me you don't seriously think that photo is legit....


I think it's interesting. I don't know enough about its origins to make any judgement one way or another as to whether it's legit.

I give up. What are we supposed to be seeing in that pic?
(please don't say the bird, please don't say the bird, please don't say the bird)


The whatever-that-flying-thing is in the background.

Exactly! People just don't have a camera aimed and ready all of the time, even the most self-absorbed, selfie fanatics, to capture everything.

Due to crime in Chicago, there are an estimated 10,000 city-owned video cameras, recording at all times. They are high up on skyscrapers...down at street level, and everywhere in between.

If Mothman is visible in Chicago, Mothman has been captured on video.

It needs to start flying over the ghetto at night, it might scare all the hoodlums off the street and put a dent in the crime rate

How on earth would you not freak out if a seven foot tall, red eyed, moth based humanoid who has a wrap for causing disaster was flying around your city?

Next time you are about to be in a car accident, be sure to film it.

When that big meteorite went down in Russia, lots of people filmed it because apparently having a dash camera is necessary to avoid people hitting you on purpose and then suing you. They'll start including them as standard equipment on trunks and rearview mirrors soon.

Yeah, my first reflex to this story was "since nearly everyone has a camera in their pocket, how can there be no pictures??". But I think I agree that if someone sees something jarring and it's fleeting, their first instinct is not to get out their phone. If the thing hangs around long enough (say more than 10 seconds), maybe - but if it's a fleeting glimpse, it's understandable that there's no photos, even with this many sightings..

Now, whether or not it's a "mothman" is a totally different question..

Ah but you forget that supernatural things often avoid video.


No real stake in this discussion; just find it interesting.
