A nighttime sighting on Route 610

YEAR: 1997


MONTH: September

STATE: Maryland

COUNTY: Worcester County

LOCATION DETAILS: The location was on route 610 about 6 or seven mile from route 50

NEAREST TOWN: Berlin Maryland

NEAREST ROAD: I was on route 610 which is not far from route 50

OBSERVED: In September of 1997 while traveling north on route 610 in Worcester county MD. at around 11:00 PM my bother and I saw a figure on the side of the road. It was very large and dark the light did not seem to reflect off of it, honestly it was as if the outline was what caught our eye. Since we were in my Suburban I could tell very easily that what ever we were seeing was tall. I recall that my brother was so shocked he even jumped away from my side of the truck which is where the figure was. Even to this day the thought of what we saw makes my hair stand up.
The figure stood motinless facing towards the east,it made no movement what so ever. I remember the light that was reflected from it's eyes was a white/silvery color. Michael and I said very little on the way home that night and we rarely speak of it today.

ALSO NOTICED: Other than total shock at what we had seen there was nothing of note.

OTHER WITNESSES: My brother Michael. He and I were talking.

OTHER STORIES: I did mention it to a friend who lives very near that area and he had heard of sightings near that area from older people. I have never myself heard of anything like this on the eastern shore.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: There was very little in the way of lights and there was as I remember no moon light. It was very dark.

ENVIRONMENT: The area is mostly farm land with pleanty of wooded area around the fields. Deer are very abundant in this area, they can been seen just at the woods edge most evenings.
