On 12 September 1952 three boys saw what they thought was a meteor crash into woods near their homes in Flatwoods, West Virginia. They went to investigate with an adult neighbour, Mrs Kathleen May. They found a glowing ball about the size of a house hovering in a clearing in the woods. Nearby stood a figure about 15 feet tall that was wrapped in a billowing black cloak. When the figure began moving toward them, the witnesses fled. Next day strange marks were found in the ground of the clearing and a terrible stench filled the air.
