Return of the Mothman set for Feb. 8 release at BAM

LOGAN, W.Va. — The first official sighting of the terrifying flying creature took place on Nov. 12, 1966 when five gravediggers at a cemetery outside Clendenin claimed to see a man-like figure soaring above their heads—gliding just above the treetops.

It was then that the Mountain State’s most famous legend began, and the massive winged creature, dubbed the Mothman, was seen repeatedly thereafter in the Point Pleasant area—alarming the local citizenry—between the winter of 1966 to late 1967.
