CHESAPEAKE, Va. - Characters from outer space are calling Chesapeake home.

In the trees on the side of Emerald Woods Drive are now two different supernatural creatures.

A flying Big Foot first arrived in the woods, but over the years, drivers say he has been known to disappear and show up in other areas of Western Branch.

Recently, he has been seen soaring high up in the trees wearing a cape with the word "believe" on it.  Last week, an alien joined him on the side of the road.

"We were here yesterday driving through and we saw the alien in the tree and I was like, 'What?! We got another one'," laughed Valerie McKee, who drives down Emerald Woods Drive several times a week.

She and several other drivers say the two creatures make them smile.

"It’s something bright and cheerful that gets your attention and it's what we need right now. It really is," shared McKee. "Hopefully, whoever is doing this is enjoying it. I know the people in the community are."

Drivers say they do not know who is responsible for putting up the alien or the Big Foot. They say not knowing makes the mystery more fun. Every time they drive down the road, they say they will be scanning the trees for more outer space creatures.

"We got a Chewbacca, we got an alien - I can’t even imagine what might be showing up next," laughed McKee.
