The Bat Beast of Kent sighting was an extraterrestrial sighting that took place on the evening of November 16, 1963 on Sandling Road in the county of Kent. The two witnesses 17-year-old John Flaxton and 18-year-old Mervyn Hutchinson.

The two witnesses were walking home from a party with several other friends when they noticed a large, glowing orb hovering high in the air. The unusual, self illuminated, ovoid object, which was described as being just a few meters in diameter, hovered above a field. It eventually made its way behind the trees and settled into the foliage of the woods at Sandling Park.

Moments after the craft apparently landed behind the trees, the teens noticed a shaking in the brush and a strange creature emerged.

AppearanceEdit

The beast apparently looked like a headless bat that was approximately 5-feet tall, with large webbed feet and wings protruding from its back. In Hutchinson’s own words: “It didn’t seem to have any head. There were huge wings on its back… like bat wings.”

TriviaEdit

  • In the 1970s, ufologist Chris Wolfe also re-opened the case of this almost avian anomaly. According to records, he interviewed Flaxton and also inspected the scene of the unearthly encounter. Following his investigation, Wolfe came to the dubious conclusion that what Flaxton, Hutchinson and their chums actually saw was an ordinary crow oddly illuminated by the flashing of an electric train passing not far away in the chilled autumnal air.
