Mothman Explained?

Nick Redfern posted this article about a possible explanation behind the mothman. Could it have been our military behind the sightings?

It was in the February 2014 issue of Soldier of Fortune that an article appeared on the matter of Mothman. It was titled “UFO Mystery Solved: ‘Mothmen’ Were Actually Green Berets.” The article was written by Harold Hutchison. Loren Coleman, cryptozoologist and expert on the Mothman phenomenon, said, when the article surfaced: “Author Harold Hutchison writes that Special operations forces near Point Pleasant, West Virginia, were testing high-altitude, low-opening (HALO) parachuting for use in Vietnam. According to Hutchison, the jumpers used luminous paint to be seen during the tests.”

Hutchison himself said: “Many of the tests of that procedure occurred near Point Pleasant. The jumpers used paint that temporarily glowed in the dark to keep track of personnel. What the Green Berets making those jumps hadn’t figured on was the fact that people on the ground could see it as well. This included the amorous couple who made the report on 15 November, 1966. The luminous paint worked so well in the tests, Special Forces troops used the paint in South-east Asia.”

The “amorous couple” was actually two couples. It was late at night when Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette – two young couples from the area – were passing the time away by cruising around town in the Scarberrys’ car. As they drove around an old TNT plant, the four were puzzled to see in the shadows what looked like two red lights pointing in their direction. These were no normal lights, however. Rather, all four were shocked and horrified to discover that, in reality, the “lights” were the red eyes of a large animal that, as Roger Scarberry would later recall, was “…shaped like a Mothman, but bigger, maybe six and a half or seven feet tall, with big wings folded against its back.”
