            On September 12, 1952 a group of children playing outside in Braxton County, West Virgina saw something fall from the sky and impact (or land) behind a nearby hill.

Sanderson, Gray Barker and others as well as an appearance by some of the eyewitnesses on a national television program. The show used a sketch artist to create a picture of the “monster,” which arguably caused the entire episode and its witnesses to become objects of ridicule.
