Last week, stories started appearing on the Internet about a satellite image on Apple maps, of what was described as something large swimming just below the surface in Loch Ness. Had satellite photography captured an image of the Loch Ness monster? Were rumors of Nessie’s death premature after all? (See our post from February — Nessie Has Gone Missing!)
The image appears to be about 50 feet long. Gary Campbell, president of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club, is quoted as saying, “It looks like a boat wake, but the boat is missing. You can see some boats moored at the shore, but there isn’t one here. We’ve shown it to boat experts and they don’t know what it is.
“Whatever this is, it is under the water and heading south, so unless there have been secret submarine trials going on in the loch, the size of the object would make it likely to be Nessie.”
