Is THIS Nessie? Apple maps satellite image spots 'creature swimming' below surface of Loch Ness
The Mirror ^ | Apr 18, 2014 13:23 | David Colins

Posted on 04/18/2014 7:09:25 PM PDT by 11th_VA

The photographs were captured by two different amateur Nessie hunters scanning different satellites on their iPhone and iPads.

That’s exactly what I thought it looked like.

I think it is a Boeing 777 that got lost.

Looks like a carefully blurred image of a moving ship to me.

Are you sure it's not Malaysia Flight 770?

Compare the scale to the boats, buildings trees and roads nearby. That’s a big fooking catfish!

There’s some photo manipulation going on there. Look at the discoloration in the areas around it. There’s no other similar discoloration anywhere else in the picture.

Life after being kept up by the Zygons probably just took its toll. I doubt they gave UNIT a guidebook on the care and maintenance of a Skarasen.

Couldn’t resist a classic Dr. Who injection.

It’s amazing that they know more about fish that live 7 miles under the ocean than we do about animals that live in a Scottish lake or in the forests of Washington!

-——It’s a big catfish -——

If the scale in the top photo is correct.....

There are no catfish that big....at least recorded as seem by anyone....

Catfish can grow huge, big enough to swallow a man whole...

That one is a far far bigger ....

Those pictures are blurry because Sir Cort Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland’s local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake.

There are no ripples in the water for a creature that size?

Smells fishy to me.

Obviously but it does look like one.

My best guess is that its a photographic artifact of a boat layered over by the next photo taken.

I enlarged the inage and ran it through some edge contrast filtering

I then noticed the right angle at the rear of the object...

I did another Pass using another filer..and noticed the very brounded front...of the object

the animation is included to hilghlight those areas mentioned

the lighter tones..appear to be...the small wake one would expect to see in conjunction with a water craft!

Are you sure it's not Malaysia Flight 770?

I wondered how long it would be until people would not even remember the correct ID number for the missing Malaysian plane.

It was MH370, btw.

... From the looks of this pic .... if it isn't a photoshop fake .... There does seem to be some kind of wake of something that is beneath the surface. Using the scale of the thing with the boats, trees and structures on the shore .... it is way too big to even be a whale .... that thing is huge!! .... If this isn't a school of large fish or feeding seals (but the size is even way to big for that ...... then it must be something else. Because of what looks like bumps on it's back the only thing I can see that would look like that from the air would be a humongous gigantic sturgeon .... however it would have to be a 4 ton sturgeon lol.

... anyways .... that's my uneducated observational two cents worth.

-——There are no ripples in the water for a creature that size?-——

Well it is just under the surface.....so any ripples would be hard to see in a still shot....

As for being bogus..... Sort of hard to swallow the idea something that huge would go unnoticed for so long....

What...? Scanning satellites with an iPhone?

Good thought, but that whale shark would have to be a hundred (hundreds?) of feet long. Compare it to the size of the trees!

Stop saying that. If he sees this thread he’ll be upset. Catfish are notoriously sensitive about their weight.

I totally agree. It looks like some sort of boat’s wake, with the boat having been digitally cancelled. Maybe Apple was using some sort of technology to reconcile multiple frames of the same location? Nessie was supposed to be a serpent, not a giant catfish.

Oh I know, lol. Actually if the pic is legit, I’m guessing it’s probably a sand bar, but if you look intently at the close up pic, it is the same general shape of a whale shark and even appears to have a similar mottled pattern of dots.
