Blazing Eyes in Tree

I've been searching through various sites and ATS seems the best one that can give me an explanation. I was going to post in "Cryptozoology and Mythical Beasts" but there doesn't seem to be much action in there.

Last night I was walking the German Shepherd, Grumbler, in the backyard as I always do when he needs to use the washroom. The yard's fairly big with lots of apple trees, American Beech, and white poplars. We were down by Old Rickety, the oldest of apple trees, that's Grumbler's usual dumping area. The dog did his business as I leaned on the shovel (# scooper) while looking around with the flashlight. My dog began to whimper, which isn't like him. He was looking up at Old Rickety as he backed away. He barked once. I saw two glowing eyes and a third glow that could've been an open mouth, I really don't know. The eyes were what got me, you know? They stared down at me while Grumbler tried to get me to move. The red eyes faded, slowly, and were not quite gone, I had a feeling that whatever was up there, didn't feel threatened by me. And I was thinking to myself, I can still see you. And that was when the glowing shapes, eyes, whatever they were, blew out. My dog's whimpering subsided as I pointed the flashlight up and as I did that, branches shook, but the flashlight revealed nothing but branches where the blazing eyes were. In that area something of a decent size could've fit in there. I could see the stars through this area. Grumbler at this point was looking up into the "almost" clear skies and as we returned to the house, he was somewhat back to normal. He kept looking about like he expected something to happen. I was more unnerved when I got back to the house, since then I feel like I am being watched. This happened a little after eleven.

Anyway, it wasn't an owl, way too big. If I had to guess the area in question is at least twelve feet above me. That would be one huge owl, one huge anything. No streetlights down there, I'm out in the countryside so lights in general are a rarity. I thought maybe a plane was flying that open space but the lights would be blinking, and the "red glows" seemed very aware. I live in Nova Scotia and I have heard of strange things, you know, things you chalk up as old wive's tales, but Grumbler was genuinely frightened and he's a very aggressive dog. I do not recall any distinct odors. Anyway, hopefully somebody can give me a logical explanation.

Thanks

Your description sounds somewhat like some of the mothman encounters.

tinwiki.org...

en.wikipedia.org...

Theres probab;ly a number of rational explinations, but the fact the dog was spooked too is intriguing. I hope someone can help you find some better answers...

Interesting, the sightings of this Mothman happened just in the 60s and only in the Charleston and Point Pleasant areas of West Virginia? I'll do more research on the Mothman. T the third glow, though fainter than the eyeish glows, has me beating my head trying to make sense. That's why I keep thinking a plane but plane lights flicker on and off and Grumbler isn't frightened of planes. I've read something about orbs that have glowing lights. But I am convinced whatever these glowing eye-like things were, they were within that apple tree. I had Grumbler down in the same spot today and everything seemed okay with him. I'd climb up there, but it's not called Old Rickety for nothing, and I'm not so non-rickety myself. Thanks for the reply. I kind of hope somebody else gives me a rational explanation, I'd rather sleep peaceful tonight, you know?

Sounds like the tree was possessed by something, maybe a demon spirit? Thats a long shot but that is what I think.

The second would be closer, but they were more defined. The reason I say the second one, because it seems in the second photo, like what I saw last night, is looking at a slight angle, making one a tidbit smaller than the other. And the third light, pulsating like a fish's mouth gasping too much air, is the best way to describe it. I would rather think it was a plane that some paranormal nightmare. The more I read up on this Mothman, the more eerie this is all seeming.

Did you have a flashlight with by any chance, and did you show it to the direction your dog was barking at? It seems it causes red eye which reflects the light, thus causing the 'blazing eyes' effect.

Also would these eyes fit the description more?

That's pretty darn close. They weren't that crooked, that much much of a lean, and they were somewhat bigger. Yes, I had a flashlight and shone it as the glows disappeared. I know, I know, should've shone the flashlight right on the spot where the dog was barking up at but I was captivated when seeing the "glows" and only consciously decided to shine it when the glows faded. I don't know what more to say, but keep the questions coming. I also accidentally posted this in the Mythical section so I am going back and forth here, trying not to repeat myself.

Yeah I understand why you rather believe it was something other then paranormal monster, I wouldn't want a maneating creature near my house while I slept.

Well, I saw fiery blazing eyes staring at me from a bush a few years ago.
I am told it could have easily been a cat.
(Cats certainly do climb trees, as we all know.
And dogs have been known to be ticked by them. :-))

That can be, but how can something as small as a cat make the branch of a tree shake, it would have to be a big cat such as a tiger/lion.

BTW a question to the OP would you venture back to that place where the disturbance happened and perhaps you can find some clues on what was really there?

It depends on the species (of the tree), Diamount.
Many trees have branches of unequal weight; and some are very easily shaken (excuse the unintended pun :-)).

I am not saying it definitely WAS a cat - how could I? - but I think it's always wise to eliminate (if possible) the most mundane explanations first.


P.S. I see it was an apple tree. I am not all that familiar with apple trees' "behaviour", I must say. I can only add that cats have been known to tiptoe their way up to the very end of branches.

Ah, I fail to see that the place where the apple tree subsides seems unstable and may collapse, unexplained things like these really bugs me

At times, especially during the night, unexpected movement of branches (and cats - just for the sake of the argument - can shake a branch really well) can appear to be more agitated or "ominous" than they are.

Again, I am not affirming this is what happened, but it is certainly plausible, at the very least.

Indeed but the OP did in fact say the 'eyes' were coming from INSIDE the tree...

It would have to be one huge cat. It was a good twelve feet above me, give or take.

The more I think about it, if it was plane it had to have flown behind some clouds because I saw no plane in the sky on the way back to the house. But to be honest, I wasn't really looking for one, but was looking up in that area of the sky from time to time.

I took the dog back down there and it was okay and nothing happened. It's not the exact time of last night, but close enough for me.

I'll come back here the next couple days to see if anybody else has a different slant on things. Thanks everybody. Between the two threads (the other in Mythical), I've concluded cool and intelligent persons exist on this board. I was treated well when I expected to be called a cuckoo. Thanks again!

An airplane...?
Wouldn't you've heard it, for one thing?
(In the distance, I assume, but still...)

Maybe it WAS a huge cat.
Stranger things have happened.



BTW, I still don't know the identity of whatever was peeping at me (see the other thread) - and I don't think I ever will.
Maybe it was a cat.
Maybe it wasn't.

It rly sounds like your torch made the eyes flare, it could have been a possum or a big owl. Did the eyes look anything like this?

Some nights the airplanes/jets rumble. Other nights they're silent lights drifting across the sky. And yes, anything's possible. I acknowledge that.
