“ On September 4, 2009 . . . just as it was getting dark, but it was a bright full moon also, my bro in law pointed behind me and said ‘What the hell is that?’ and I turned around and saw the largest flying creature I’ve ever seen. It was heading straight towards us. I wish I’d had a video camera. It flew straight over us and off into the horizon. It must have had a 20 foot wingspan. It was gigantic. It flew about 50 feet over our heads.” So stated the man who reported what he called a “pterodactyl.”
But these two men were not the only eyewitnesses of strange flying creatures near the Cooney Reservoir in southeast Montana, in early September, 2009. The same eyewitness that gave the above account also said, “I told the fish and wildlife service lady who was working there what I saw and her eyes popped open and she said she’d seen several very large birds that she’d never seen before in the area the day before.”

A “very large, winged creature” glided over the heads of two eyewitnesses who were taking a walk near the corner of Burbank Blvd and Woodman, in Sherman Oaks, California, one night in September of 2009. It was described as too big to be a bird: a wingspan estimate of at least 10-15 feet.
The man said, “it almost didn’t look alive until it beat its wings, once, before going out of view. I didn’t have my best glasses on but my girlfriend has 20-20 vision and she told [me] a few minutes later that it had lights on it.” But the dim glow of this flying creature differs from the bright flash of the ropen (apparent modern living pterosaur) of Papua New Guinea. If it is related to the glowing ropen, perhaps the creature seen by the two eyewitnesses had a residual bioluminescent glow, left over after one of its bright flashes; another eyewitness has reported brigher flashes of flying lights (similar to the ropen light) north of Los Angeles, at various times.
Sherman Oaks is in Los Angeles County, California, just north of the mountains that separate the San Fernando Valley cities from the greater Los Angeles area. (Compare with Irvine, California, pterosaur)
