While most pervasive in the and the imagery of UFOs, flying saucers and creatures from out of space have left an enduring mark on our collective consciousness. A new book from Anthology Editions by Jack Womack tracks its history.
The first sighting of ther Owlman took place on April 17, 1976, when the creature was spotted hovering above the Mawnan church tower in Mawnan, Cornwall. This cryptid, which has the appearance of an owl, is about the size of a man; it has pointed ears, red eyes, and black pincer-like claws. It had large wings of a greyish color. There were many UFO reports, as well as accounts of animals behaving strangely in the surrounding area just prior to the Owlman sightings.
