Date:  May 5 2017
Location:  South Chicago/Calumet Park, Illinois
Time:  8 pm
Summary:  “I was out with my son at Calumet Park at about 8 pm walking the trail, as we have since he was about 6 years old. We were talking about what was going on within our lives and about what our plans were for the upcoming summer. As we walked toward the fieldhouse, we were overflown by what I thought was a large goose as we have seen multiple geese flying around the city and suburbs within the last couple of months. As we watched, it quickly became apparent that this was not a goose, but something much bigger. I can describe it as a large bat, but it had a distinct human figure about 6 feet in height per my estimates. It was blackish/grayish in color and had an enormous pair of wings that must have been 8 to 10 feet in width. My son was in complete shock and asked me what that thing was. My response was an equally surprised “I don’t know.” This bat flew up and over the fieldhouse and toward where the tennis courts would be. I heard a couple yell out in surprise as this bat flew up and over the fieldhouse and out of view. The entire encounter lasted about 30-35 seconds from the initial sighting to it flying up and over the fieldhouse and out of sight. I estimated the speed of this bat to be at least 40-50 MPH and it to be at least 15-20 feet above us as it was just over the top of the streetlights. It was dusk, but the sun had just started to set, so there was enough light to still get a good view of the object as it flew overhead. I was only able to get a general description as it flew over us at that speed and prohibited from getting any finer details of it. We went around the fieldhouse and tried to see if we could see anything on the other side, but did not get any other views of this creature. The rest of the evening went without incident and I only decided to report this after reading some reports of similar sightings within the city online. “

Summary:   Was out at the breakwater with my best friend and her boyfriend. We were waiting for my boyfriend to finish helping his dad tie their boat to the dock after helping bring the boat to the marina for the Summer. We were standing on the shore by some picnic tables waiting on James to meet us there. We were talking when we heard this loud screech, it sounded completely out of this world and after a couple of seconds, we heard another one, only louder and higher pitch than the first one. We looked around thinking we had heard an animal in distress and if it needed help. That’s when we saw this large bat fly into our view. It was black and came from the direction of the bridge that holds up the Lake Shore Drive. It flew low and then shot up into the air as it came over the water. We noticed one of the coast guard helicopters was flying over the water at about the same time, but we’re not sure if it saw this thing as it kept on flying toward the Adler Planetarium. This thing flew a large circle and cried out again and almost instantly it was joined by another large bat. These things were big and stood out against the sky. They flew figure eights around each other. It looked like they were dancing in a strange sort of way. It was actually quite beautiful, considering how freaking strange it was. About that time, my boyfriend walked up on us and scared the living bejeezus out of us. Both myself and my friend screamed and I think those large bats heard us. Because they screeched back at each other and both flew down toward the water, it looked like they were going to slam into the water and at the last second, they pulled up and flew toward and I’m assuming under the bridge and out of sight. we ran toward the railing, to look down the river and saw nothing else. This entire encounter lasted about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. It was scary, only because we didn’t know what the Hell they were, but it looked like they were interested in each other and not us. We can’t be the only other ones to see it as the riverwalk and the pier were full of people and joggers. Are these things just giant bats or are they gargoyles or just people in those wing-suit thingies?
