(RNN) - You've heard of killings two birds with one stone, well this is spotting two rarities at one time.

Joshua Stevens, a cartographer for NASA developed a map of the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse matched up with reported sightings of Bigfoot, known as "Sunsquatch."

Using data from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, Stevens plotted known Bigfoot sightings and then highlighted the ones that appear in the eclipse's path of totality.

It's good news for Bigfoot hunters with an interest in astronomy because there is at least one sighting in the path of totality in every state the eclipse will cross.

If that's doesn't excite you enough, there's also map from a professor of geography at the University of Georgia showing all the Waffle House locations within the path of totality.

There are also several places named "Eclipse" where the eclipse can be seen.

To get the maximum experience, you will want to be in Gallatin, TN, which is in the path of totality, has a Waffle House, is 7 miles from "Eclipse Appraisal Management" and is in the vicinity of multiple Bigfoot sightings.
