Apple Maps has never had the best reputation but now is being credited with helping to find the Lochness Monster. Amateur monster hunters Andy Dixon and Peter Thain came across an intriguing image that shows “something” in the water.
The photo was taken directly from Apple’s satellite images, which got off to a rocky start a couple years ago with images like this:
Upon finding the image by chance, Dixon and Thain immediately contacted the Official Loch Ness Monster Club (you heard me).
“Whatever it is, it’s just below the surface 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,” said Gary Campbell, a club representative.
It appears less like the famous plesiosaur and more of a giant catfish, or wake of a passing boat, or just a glitch from an earlier photo capture.
The image has caught headlines worldwide but is finding little in the way of credibility. Currently, there are no plans for further investigation via satellite imagery.
