Post and Courier — Amid the solar eclipse’s hype, which will bring millions of visitors to dozens of events happening across the state this month, here’s one thing you probably haven’t prepared for: a supernatural encounter.
Luckily, several government agencies have been ahead of the game, already highlighting on social media the possibility of paranormal activity as the sky goes dark mid-afternoon on Aug. 21.
And with the Carolinas’ history of “Lizard Man” and “Bigfoot” sightings, residents should be aware of the possibilities.
At least the South Carolina Emergency Management Division thinks so.
The agency tweeted a graphic Wednesday, “regarding possible paranormal activity” occurring during the solar eclipse.
The “Lizard Man” was first spotted in 1988 by Christopher Davis, a then 17-year-old Lee County resident, according to previous Post and Courier reports.
Davis was driving around 2 a.m. one summer morning, when he got a flat tire near Scape Ore Swamp. After he finished changing it, he claimed a “red-eyed devil” appeared about 30-yards away. Davis was able to get into his car and drive as the alleged creature jumped on the roof. He threw the thing off, but said that it was able to keep up with the car at speeds up to 40 mph.
NASA may not be fully in the loop on South Carolina’s “Lizard Man,” but their Scientific Visualization Center did publish “Sunsquatch,” a graphic showing exactly where one could potentially see the eclipse and “bigfoot” at the same time.
First and foremost, I want to apologize to my loyal following for taking so long in between my last blog and this one. I was in the weeds. Now, let’s get to it.
I’m a big believer in aliens, ghosts and generally into any and all weird shit that goes down in the woods. If there’s a Satanic ritual going down in the woods, I want the invite. The people of South Carolina, these are my people. I’m all in with many of their beliefs: Bigfoot, The Lizardman, denial of childhood obesity through gluttonous fast food consumption. All of it. I’m here for it.
I think I may be the only person on the planet to see every episode of Finding Bigfoot. I want to find that fucker more than anyone. I do have to admit though, I do not want to find The Lizardman of Scape Ore Swamp. That nickname in itself is terrifying, let alone the fact that he’s a 7-foot scaly and jacked as shit lizard.
On the 21st of this month, a total solar eclipse will be seen in South Carolina, and I can promise you three things:
1) Bigfoot and The Lizardman will be spotted everywhere.
2) A ton of people will be on drugs.
3) I had to Google what a total solar eclipse was.
I’m not saying that the first two are directly related, but I respect the South Carolina Emergency Management Division for being prepared and alerting it’s people (my people).
