Everyone knows Mothman and I know it's controversial to claim him in Ohio as a West Virginia *icon*, the Silver Bridge collapse he prophesized was a connecting bridge between Point Pleasant, WV and Gallipolis, Ohio.

On November 12, 1966, five men who were digging a grave at a cemetery near Clendenin, WV, claimed to have seen a man-like figure fly low from the trees over their heads. This is often identified as the first known sighting of what became known as the Mothman.

Shortly thereafter, on November 15, 1966, two young couples from Point Pleasant, Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette, told police they saw a large grey creature whose eyes "glowed red" when the car's headlights picked it up. They described it as a "large flying man with ten-foot wings", following their car while they were driving in an area outside of town.

Mothman is a tonal deep grey with red/burgundy accents.
