What is ‘Where Is the Sky’ on TikTok? Series leaves users creeped out

A new creepy series called “Where Is the Sky” has people freaking out on TikTok

Some have characterized the point-of-view videos as an ARG, or alternate reality game — one that combines fictional storytelling with the real world. So here’s what you need to follow along on this spooky journey. 

What is ‘Where Is the Sky’ on TikTok?


i don’t even know why i’m doing this but hopefully somebody sees this? it’s 11AM and the sun still hasn’t came up? everybody in my apartment is gone?

♬ original sound – is anybody there?

Where is the Sky started on an account of the same name, which has 1.2 million followers. The videos follow an anonymous protagonist as he navigates a world covered in darkness while fleeing things that go bump in the night.

“I don’t even know why I’m doing this but hopefully, somebody sees this? It’s 11 a.m. and the sun still hasn’t come up? Everybody in my apartment is gone?” the caption of the very first video read.

Who is the person behind ‘Where Is the Sky’ on TikTok? 

The account is linked with another TikTok called “there_is_no_sky” and some believe the creator is Lewis Witterick. Witterick’s Instagram is linked to on the original TikTok account and in his bio he listed “where_is_the_sky.”  

The story of ‘Where Is the Sky’ is still unfolding.


whatever that thing was in the stairwell wasn’t the only one, they’re everywhere.

In one video the protagonist is trying to record, but a monster’s roar is quickly heard and he runs away. 


there are footprints in the snow . . . and there’s something on the track.

In another he hears an ominous gurgling sound coming from the train tracks. Then notices footprints. 


in honour of a million of you following my story, i went back to where it all began. big mistake.

♬ original sound – is anybody there?

But some of the villains in the story might be human. A TikTok showed him being chased by what looks like two men, up and down a spiral staircase. When he opened a door to make a quick exit, a monster’s claw reached out for him. 

We’ll all have to keep watching to see what happens.
