This amazing image on Google Earth could be the elusive proof that the Loch Ness Monster exists.
Sun reader Jason Cooke spotted "Nessie" while browsing the Web site's satellite photos.
The shape seen on the surface of the 22-mile Scottish loch is 65ft long and appears to have an oval body, a tail and four legs or flippers.
Some experts believe Nessie may be a Plesiosaur, an extinct marine reptile with a shape like the Google image.
"This is really intriguing. It needs further study," said researcher Adrian Shine, of the Loch Ness Project.
Sightings have been claimed for centuries.
To see the object, enter co-ordinates Latitude 57°12'52.13"N, Longitude 4°34'14.16"W in Google Earth.

looks like a boat with a square transom and a wake
It’s a boat. Bow wave off the front. Stern wave off the back. Engine exhaust down the middle.
bump for later
Somehow, I do not think this news is going to push “Dead Ted” from the headlines any time soon.
Yup, pending a more detailed photo, I’d say it’s a boat with a wake.
If that’s Nessie, it looks like it’s been dead and bloated for sometime.
A boat????? That is crazy talk.
Now that’s what I call a monster.
Be afraid, be very afraid.
For what it’s worth, author Steve Alten was interviewed about this photo on Coast-to-Coast last night (yeah, I know they also had an earlier guest talking about how paranormal activity has increased the past 5 yrs due to increased solar activity).
Alten made a # of observations, two of which were: (1) He doesn’t know where the “65-foot” figure comes from — because the Loch has no islands of a given length as comparison.
(2) The evidence he has seen is that the loch is more likely home to a 30-to-50-foot eel.
And why did he not consider some large man made object as a possibility?
How many large boats actually travel the Loch Ness ?
same thing I thought. A boat.
Quite a few.
An eel! That actually makes good sense.
True story here...my dad was in the Navy during the Korean War on the USS Wisconson. Told me one day in the N. Atlantic men were calling everyone they could get onto the deck to see a “sea monster”. It was (according to my dad) dark, muddy brown in color...about 3 ft thick with a head “like a snake” and was probably close to 50 ft long as the men judged. Dad said about 100 men witnessed this and they ALL simply attributed it to some deep sea snake or eel. So neat you said that. Could be a great-grandaddy eel that was somehow able to grow to that huge proportion.
