'Loch Ness Monster' found on mobile map app

Could this be the Loch Ness Monster ? Image Credit: Apple Maps

The form of what looks like a huge creature in Loch Ness has been spotted on Apple's satellite maps app.

It's been a while since there have been any reported sightings of the fabled Loch Ness Monster but this week eagle-eyed users of Apple's satellite maps application managed to spot something rather strange moving through the waters of Scotland's enigmatic lake.

Based on the size of some boats anchored nearby the gargantuan object appears to be more than 100ft in length, far larger than anything that should be living in the loch. Its form also seems to resemble that of a large fish with distinctive flipper-like shapes at its sides.

"We've been looking at it for a long time trying to work out exactly what it is," said Gary Campbell of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club.

"It looks like a boat wake, but the boat is missing. You can see some boats moored at the shore, but there's one here. We've shown it to boat experts and they don't know what it is."

Apparently the full explanation is that this was never in any way an intentional hoax, the satellite really did take that image. Of a boat. It's a composite photo taken over quite a long period of time, therefore some parts of it came out better than others, depending on the weather conditions. Scotland is of course notoriously damp and misty, and that patch of the composite has much lower contrast than the rest because the weather wasn't cooperating that day. If you look closely at the trees on the shore, they're very blurred and colorless near the "monster" compared wit... [More]

The "Loch Ness Monster" is known as the Greenland shark. This shark looks different than other sharks. People say sometimes they see what looks like an up-side down boat floating in the water. The mystery of the "Loch Ness" is no longer a mystery. The lock ness monster is the Greenland shark.

As has already been pointed out and explained by myself and others in this and other threads: 1) The Greenland Shark can't survive for lengthy periods in freshwater. 2) The only way to get from the sea to Loch Ness is via a path that involves either the Caledonian Canal via artificial locks with multiple gates for allowing boats to navigate the rising/lowering path of the river or via the Ness River itself which involves multiple shallow rapids and weirs that would be impossible for a huge slow moving fishing like a Greenland Shark to navigate. Apart from those obvious problems, you'... [More]

It looks to me like a giant trilobite more than a "Loch Ness Monster".
