HELP! Darth Vader bug (what is it?)

We were on vacation in the mountains of North Carolina, staying at a cabin in the woods. Every night, insects would come out of the forest and land on the outside walls around the porch lights, Mostly moths of various kinds (Including 2 luna months), but these two bugs were bizzarre!
We don’t have any idea what they are. Can you help?
I am sending you pictures of both of them.
The Globe, near Blowing Rock, NC
We don’t like to post letters with unrelated insects as it compromises our archiving system. This is a female Dobsonfly, and it is the second example we are posting today.
