Monster or Boat Wake? - 'Loch Ness Monster' Spotted On Apple Maps
From The Huffington Post
Apparently Loch Ness Monster hunters should've just asked Siri where to find the mythical beast.
A group of Loch Ness Monster enthusiasts say they've sighted the legendary Scottish beast via satellite images on Apple Maps. The creature, which purportedly is seen periodically in Scotland's Loch Ness, was spotted this time by members of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club using the Apple software. They have been puzzling over the dubious image for the past six months.
Excitable spotters say the low-resolution image can't be anything other than "Nessie," which looks to have large flippers and a long, ghostly white silhouette.
"We’ve been looking at it for a long time trying to work out exactly what it is," said Gary Campbell, president of the club, to the Daily Mail. "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."
Campbell told ABC News the group submitted the image to Scottish Canals, the government agency which manages the country's inland waterways. The agency couldn't identify it, either.
"Nobody has been able to explain what it is," Campbell told ABC. "It's pretty large, so it's not a seal or an otter. It's also not a whale or basking shark as some people claim, because they wouldn't go in fresh water."
