    Loch Ness Monster--on Google Earth. Daily Mail U.K.

    Is this Nessie on Google Earth?

    It promised the world views of the entire planet from their laptop. But could Google Earth have unravelled our favourite mystery of the deep?
    One internet fan claims he found the legendary Loch Ness Monster in satellite images on the virtual globe.
    Security guard Jason Cooke said the 65ft oblong shape followed by thin strands is actually the highly contested creature supposed to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands.


    Jason told the Sun: 'I couldn't believe it. It's just like the descriptions of Nessie.'
    Nessie enthusiasts believe the creature is a plesiosaur - an aquatic reptile that appeared at the start of the Jurassic period and is widely believed to be extinct.


    Some claimed a series of vertebrae uncovered on the shores of Loch Ness were 'proof' that there was a living plesiosaur in the Loch.
    Adrian Shine, a researcher on the Loch Ness project, called the new images 'really intriguing' and said they deserved further study.
    Scientists have widely written off the idea as a modern-day myth and continued sightings as set ups and wishful thinking.
    Yet it has remained a contested phenomenon for almost 80 years.
    The latest tantalising sighting can be seen on Google Earth using the co-ordinates Latitude 5712'52.13"N, Longitude 434'14.16"W.

    It seems that Florida was a mere vacation and not the retirement that we thought.

    The original pics were a self confessed student prank!

    Nuff said.
