Yes, those things you got taught to draw as a kid, if you were like me you also enjoyed turning the corner of your schoolbooks into epic motion pictures of stick man adventures too.

There are reports of these creatures/men being seen as real entity’s, some more obscure reports mention them wearing a stick hat. The walk they adopt is a sort of lo-lope gait and are surprised when seen but have followed some of their more unfortunate witnesses.

There have so far been no reports of harm coming to someone and they tend to just disappear. There seems to be no tales for their origins and but a theory is they may have come from a 2D universe. I dounf one account, via Mike Dash’s book Borderlands, which stated two people were travelling across the All Road, Elveden in England and caught a glimpse of them in the headlights.

Stories about sightings have turned up since 2008. it might be another urban legend or creation like Slenderman, or an attempt to get something viral for a marketing campaign that never reached fruition. It seems that simple google searches bring up forums that show people willing to share experiences but I couldn’t see any good video’s or footage. I was reminded of a previous subject however, about the strange alien stick figures/nightcrawlers.

The WOW! Signal was detected in 1977, 15th August by Jerrty R Ehman whilst working on a project at the Big Ear Radio Telescope. It was in Ohio, it bore the expected anticipated markings of being extra-terrestrial.

The noise lasted for 72 seconds and since then it has not been heard again.

The name WOW! came from Ehman writing it on the computer print out of the signal.

There have been further attempts to detect the sound again, but by 1999 after six 14-hour long observation attempts WOW! had not been picked up again.

In 2012, on it’s 35th Anniversary a response from humanity was beamed out. The idea is that if there are other lifeforms out there, they might pick us up on their travels.

 

July 1947, for alien conspiracy claims this is the cracker!

A rancher found metal debris on the ground outside his place in Roswell, New Mexico. America was gripped in ‘flying saucer fever’, the claims were rapidly dismissed by officials as debris from a weather balloon in an accident.

But the alien craft and bodies had supposedly already been taken away, witnesses spoke of holes in the desert grounds, of covert ops to bring the ship down to ground and then in 1995 the mysterious Roswell autopsy video surfaced. The video shows the supposed ‘grey’ alien being autopsied. There are enough video’s around about the debunk vs authenticity that you can probably google a fair whack in a night.

Despite the US Air Force still stating that it was a weather balloon the rumours carry on to this day.

In 2006 the video was finally proven to be a hoax, the video was made by Ray Sentilli who was a London-based video maker. He admitted that it was a reconstruction of a video that he claimed originally existed however that was lost, he stated that there were a few of the original films in survival however they don’t seem to have been brought forwards for checking.

If you are looking for a comedic look at this with some terribly English humour, then Alien Autopsy is a good light relief film.

A fictionalized version of the creation of the footage and its release was retold in the comedy film Alien Autopsy (2006).

Not the band! or the kids show… But the Phenomenon.

In World War II the pilotes of Allied aircraft described lights or strange things in the sky as foo fighter. Originally it was termed for the UFO sighting by the US 415th Night Figher Squadron but took on the name from there for all unexplained objects in the sky. The original assumption was that the lights or objects might be enemy craft, secret weapons etc but they were reported by both sides.

The term foo was taken from Bill Holman’s Smokey Stover by Donald J Meiers from 415th Night Fighter Squadron.  However a RAF Pilot’s report from a bombing mission over Germany in 1942 also contains the term so there is no confirmation about where it really began to be used.

Pilots described objects that were glowing red, white or orange. Some said they came across the sky like Christmas lights and that they circled around like they toyed with the aircraft before they vanished. The other common factor is that they seemingly flew with intelligence but never seemed to act in a hostile manner. They were also known as “kraut fireballs” and the military did seem to take them seriously, strangely enough both German and Japanese pilots were reporting a similar thing. A rationale for the sightings was a possibility of afterimages from flak bursts, or perhaps St Elmo’s fire.

On one occasion a gunner of a B-29 hit one and it was said that it fell in large pieces setting buildings on fire. Again people still unable to confirm this report state that they feel it is still more likely to be an electrostatic phenomena like St Elmo’s fire.

So what is St Elmo’s fire? It’s a weather blip if you like, named after St. Erasmus of Formiae who is the patron saint of sailors. It is bright blue or violet and has at times been confused with ball lightning. The fire is a mix of gas and plasma, and they are often witnessed during thunderstorms as the right conditions are met to ignite them.

Various legends for the beautiful natural event and some have been named. Welsh Mariners called them Spirit Candles, and the Chinese Goddess Mazu is believed to create a fire on top of a ships mast to bless lost sailors.

St Elmo’s fire was also reported to have been seen in 1453, at the Seige of Constantiniple by the Ottoman Empire. It was reported to be on the top of the Hippodrome and the Byzantines said it was a sign that the Christian God would come to destroy the Muslim army. It then disappeared just days before Constantinople fell and ended the Byzantine Empire.

Ball Lightning

The Dover Demon is a cryptid that comes from the Massachusett’s area, USA. It was first reported April 21st 1977. He has attracted enough interest worldwide to have figurines of him made in Japan.

The Dover Demon was first sighted by three 17 year old boys driving through the area, the cars headlights caught it as they passed near a bar. Bill Bartlett was the driver that reported the sighting saying that at first he thought it was a dog or cat. On closer inspection they found it was a rather unearthly-looking thing crawling along a stone wall, Farm Street.

He watched it long enough to get a desciption, which is that it had a disproportionately large head with illuminated orange eyes. It has long thin arms and slender fingers. It was hairless with a rough skin and had no eyes, ears or mouth that he could see. Other witnesses say the creature has green eyes, chalky grey skin and that it makes a blood curdling screech, however the sexless, featureless descriptions are a match.

It was then seen an hour later by two more teenagers who were walking home. Both of them said it was bipedal, this also matched the same description from two people the next day who said the same information as Bartlett however he reported the eyes as green not orange. All witnesses have remained steadfast with their description and they all drew sketches. Bartlett’s included a note to say he also would swear on a stack of Bibles that’s what he saw.

So… how does he fit in with theories? Let’s jump straight to alien, a possible human/alien hybrid that escaped from a secret compound? How about a being from another dimension?

A curiously mundane (and perhaps more sensible) suggestion comes from zoological sources who say it might be a newborn moose. Some of the descriptives are very similar but a moose has hooves not fingers. Also it was disputed saying that at the time the offspring would be larger and no records for them exist in eastern Mass- for 1977.

So the conlusion is that there is so far nothing evidence wise to prove or disprove the Devon Demon. The description is also similar to that of the Mannegishi creature native to Cree Indians in Canada. It could also be similar to some aquatic beings, like a merbeing type. A similar description also comes up in the Carribean legends of the Backoo.

Unfortunately there was also a greater deal of skepticism due to the age of the people involved. Some skeptics like to cite that this is nothing more than teenage pranking, but before the reportings had been put together after the fact there is nothing to suggest the teenagers had even met. Another one for the unsolved case but intriguing none the less.
