Legend has it, around 2 a.m. one summer morning in 1988, Christopher Davis, a 17-year-old from Lee County, South Carolina, encountered a creature that eventually gathered international attention and is now known as “Lizard Man.”
As Post and Courier reported, Davis was fixing a flat tire on his car when he was apparently approached by a “red-eyed devil.” Davis was able to get in his car and drive away, but not before the alleged creature jumped on the roof of his car. Davis eventually shook the thing off, but as you can imagine, he didn’t stick around to find out what it was.
Like with bigfoot sightings, every now and then, someone will come out and say they encountered a scaly creature, but with no more evidence than a grainy cell phone video.
Now, with all the hype surrounding the Aug. 21, 2017, solar eclipse, NASA says there might be a way to see one of these creatures DURING the eclipse.
NASA’s Scientific Visualization Center published “Sunsquach,” a graphic that shows exactly where one could potentially get a view of the eclipse and a “bigfoot” at the same time:

The map shows where bigfoot sightings in the United States and the path of totality for the eclipse overlap. So, if you believe the rumors that bigfoot and lizardmen become more active during a solar eclipse, you might want to park a seat somewhere in one of those locations.
You might recognize a handful of overlap spots located in North Carolina, and the Greenville Police Department has already warned people in a post on Facebook, “If you see Bigfoot, please do not shoot.” The post linked to a video from 2015, which showed an alleged bigfoot running across a road into a field.
