The NASA Gargoyle was a winged creature reportedly sighted in 1986 by Frank Shaw, a NASA archivist at Houston’s Johnson Space Center.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The entity was described as a jet-black humanoid, that seemed to have a large “cape” draped across its shoulders.
Possible Explanations[edit | edit source]
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- A hoax (possibly a man in a suit)
Notable Encounters[edit | edit source]
According to Shaw, he was walking to his car at the end of his shift when he happened to glance up and see a ghastly black, gargoyle-like figure perched ominously on the edge of one of the Space Center’s buildings. Shaw claimed that he was frozen in horror at the sight of this astounding apparition, which, according to his description, was a jet-black humanoid, that seemed to have a large “cape” draped across its shoulders. It was at this point that the “gargoyle” seemed to unfurl its wings, which Shaw stated made a “crackling” noise as it took flight in the powerful, howling gusts. The sound of the crackling wings seemed to snap Shaw out of his stupor and he turned and sprinted toward his vehicle. In what must have been the longest moments of his life, Shaw fumbled with his keys, unlocked the car door, dove inside, started the engine and drove into the blackness of the night, too terrified to even look back to see if he was being pursued by this winged, ebony atrocity.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Much to Shaw’s delight he was not met with incredulity or mockery, but instead was informed that he was not the first Johnson Space Center employee to have seen this enigmatic entity skulking in the isolated areas of station. In fact, Shaw’s boss revealed that a secret file had been opened on the creature just a few months prior to Shaw’s sighting. The supervisor stated that the file had been created in response to the gruesome deaths of two of the bases German Sheppards. Apparently the corpses of the hideously mutilated and exsanguinated canines had been discovered in exactly the same area where Shaw had seen the gargoyle. (americanmonsters.com)
- Following his unusual confession, Shaw’s story made its way up the chain of command until it apparently came to the attention of some NASA officials who — in classic MEN IN BLACK fashion — decided to interrogate the witness. According to Desiree, her father was intensely grilled by what she referred to as:
- “NASA security people who were flown in from somewhere in Arizona… that much I know.”
