Has Nessie the Loch Ness Monster been photographed by Google Earth?





Loch Ness



on Google

An image which appears

to show a large sea creature

swimming in a Scottish loch

has been spotted on

Google Earth.

The discovery has prompted

some to suggest it is proof that

the legendary Loch Ness monster,

sometimes known as “Nessie”,

actually exists.

The strange shape was

reportedly found by Jason Cooke,

who told The Sun newspaper

in Britain,

“I couldn’t believe it.

It’s just like the

descriptions of Nessie.”




Following the reports,

Google announced that its

specially adapted trike,

which is able to take eye-level

images of areas that are

inaccessible to its Street View

camera cars,

would be sent to Loch Ness

on Thursday.

The Loch Ness monster

was first brought to the

world’s attention in 1933.

Since then there have

been dozens of sightings,

although many of these have

turned out to be nothing

more than hoaxes.

There have also been a

number of searches for

the creature.

The most recent was in 2008

when scientists used sonar

and underwater cameras in

an attempt to find the animal.

For anyone interested

the supposed monster,

which is around 20 meters long,

can be seen in Google Earth

at Latitude 57°12’52.13″N,

Longitude 4°34’14.16″W.

  1. This photo looks more authentic than most because of the graininess of the photo.

  2. However, the top photo looks to me like an otter.
