A Timeline of the Chicago Flying Humanoid Sightings So Far

So far there have been sixteen sightings of a large, flying humanoid in Chicago in 2017, and two prior sightings that took place in 2011.  They've been reported out of chronological order, so we've put together a timeline of the reports, with links to the articles that describe them, to help you contextualize the sightings.  All of the sightings have taken place in Chicago's lakefront area, within a few miles of Lake Michigan.

The current timeline:
