Here's a clip from the Center for Fortean Zoology website. It is a video taken of something in Loch Ness in April of this year and then given to representitives of the center at the Fortean Times Unconvention for analysis. Its in Windows media format, but takes awhile to load if you have a dialup connection, so the quality may not be all that great. The website also offers a section to leave comments, and is conducting a poll of people's opinions.

Anyone care to describe what happens in the video?

Heres My verdict, now you must understand i'm not exactly big on cryptozoological creatures:

There definately something there bigger than a eel that engulf suggested, although the video is poor quality as MM said, you can make it out, with the nice commentry from the dude on the other end of the camera, there is a shadow as he said, and it does look like something breaking the water.  It has to be big to make a shadow under the water like that, but seeing as its white and from other nessie photos, its supposed to be brown, then i suspect its a small whale of some kind. Unless of course loch ness isn't connected to the sea but i'm i dunno about that.

It could well be a boat , it's a very good video though ..

Sturgeon fish thrive in the Locks of Scotland. Some which has been caught have reached the length 6-12 feet! If you pop the word Sturgeon into Google search, you will be surprised at the length and size they can grow. And supposedly, just before they die they start turning white. dontgetit.gif

I saw a photo shopped image of a Sturgeon, and it had had its body elongated with effects to seem logner, but you could see small problems with it and was obviously a fake. thumbsup.gif

The man claimed that the thing swam by his boat and he took a photo of it. Oh he also claimed that it was a sea serpent of some kind.

I am not sure if this guy could have got any closer to the objects in the water. The road is considerably higher than the loch at this point, although he could have attempted to get closer by entering the Urquhart Castle site. Having said that, I am unsure just how close this is to the castle.

Loch Ness is connected to the sea by the River Ness, which flows through the town of Inverness. I cannot imagine that this river is very deep, so it seems rather unlikely that these objects are whales. The Sturgeon theory is an interesting one, but the boat theory can clearly be ruled out. The objects (creatures) disappear underwater at times. I don't think that I have ever seen a boat do that !

Maybe there is a submarine in the Loch, with a plastic Nessie neck stuck on it, and why can no one find it when they search the loch? Because the sub has a built in cloaking device. Now why didn't I think of that ages ago!? thumbsup.gif  whistling2.gif
