The Bigfoot Moon

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 20th, 2008

Are there certain moon phases that are better by which to hunt Bigfoot? Well, while you ponder that question, dealt with throughout this posting, think about how much the museum needs your help.

Coming very soon, the “Bene-foot” on November 22nd, in downtown Portland…Maine. On Saturday night. Empire Dine and Dance Club is at 575 Congress Street. If you are a student with an ID, you get in for $15. It’s a good cause and you can laugh too.

Bring your cryptozoology books and get an autograph, if you want from me and/or the comedians. Or not. Just chill, if that’s what you want to do. No snow is in the forecast. The sky will be clear and the moon will look like this on November 22nd, over Portland, Maine:

Advance ticket sales end today, Thursday, November 20th, at midnight. Non-student advance tickets are $22, regular tickets are $25 at the door. For more details, see here.

The leading cryptozoo cartoon artists in the world have donated their time and art on behalf of the comedy benefit to support the International Cryptozoology Museum, to spread the announcement of this benefit.

If you can’t come but strongly wish to donate to the cause, please send your donations via PayPal to or, your donations via snail mail to International Cryptozoology Museum, attn: Loren Coleman, PO Box 360, Portland, ME 04112 USA.

The art following is greatly appreciated. Everyone has given permission to reproduce any one of these completely on your blog or website in the next two days to get the word out about the “Bene-Foot.”

Deep thanks are given to Duncan Hopkins, the creator of the ICM logo above, and the various famous artists, in order, whose works appears below: Ted Bastien, Dan Slavin, Peter Loh, Robert Swain, Charles Berlin, and David Lowe.

This is the way the moon will look up in the heavens on December 25, 2008, whether you are in Iraq, Afghanistan, Maine, Japan, or Bluff Creek, California:

Much thanks again to all the artists.

BTW, some researchers say the best moon to have in the sky is the New Moon, when searching for Sasquatch. It looks like this:

The following is the way the moon will look on January 1, 2009:

Go out there and catch Bigfoot in 2009!

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Will the nite be filmed or recorded at all ?

    I’ve done a little research in that area myself, looking over sightings and distribution for West Virginia (don’t ask, it was just a project of mine).

    My information was based of of info from the BFRO site, and most of what I looked into suggested that the New Moon, Full Moon, and Dark Moon were all good…now that info could be skewed by all kinds of things (like only a limited number of incidents, reliability, etc.), but I have thought about the function of the moon before, especially with my favorite critters like Nessie, Champ and Ogopogo. The moon phase has a lot to do with breeding, movement and all kinds of things with animals (and I would be willing to wager with humanity too, though most people don’t like to acknowledge that), and I think it should have similar effects on cryptids.

    I am working on cataloging similar things for Nessie and Champ and Ogo, so that when I do finally get to go to those places I will have as much info as possible to refine my search.

    In the meantime for those interested, I found a website that will calculate moon phase for you, here.

    I have big problems with “more activity” during times when the moon is the least luminescent. For starters, if you don’t have good night vision (which I am going to make the claim that it probably doesn’t considering it seems to be perfectly fine and active during the day), you aren’t going to be doing more things on the nights when you have the most problems seeing. Also, is there more activity, or are we simply imagining more activity because of our unconscious fears of the dark and attributing more noises and other “proof” because of this.

    Yes, no basis…just biased claims as I rush to class!
