Google’s Street View may have just captured the Loch Ness Monster coming up for a breather in the deep, dark waters of the Loch Ness in Scotland. Google’s Street View is capturing pictures from above the water and below and this latest image of the Loch Ness shows something rather big breaching the surface of the water, causing a rather large and long wake and then it totally disappears under the water.
This latest captured image could be something else other than the famous Loch Ness Monster, but what that may be is hard to explain. As the International Business Times reports on April 21, Google’s traveling “Trekker” is used to document all the corners of the earth today and the odd sight captured by the camera while out on Loch Ness has Loch Ness Monster enthusiasts very interested in the latest image.
Today you don’t have to purchase thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment, fly to Scotland and rent a boat to hunt for the centuries-old Loch Ness Monster, which came out of one of Scotland’s most famous legends. Google has the area covered in images ready for you to explore. The Huffington Post reports today that, “Google mounted a Street View camera on a boat to give people a 360-degree view of the 23-mile-long loch in all its murky glory, and to allow armchair monster hunters around the world to join the search for Nessie.”
You too can start your own search for Nessie through the Loch Ness body of water using the Google Street View by clicking here. It brings you right to Scotland and you get the same view as the folks who were out on the famous Loch Ness in a boat, so do a little exploring from your couch!
Google has photographed the lake from above and below and besides this mysterious image captured on film, there were no reports of seeing anything resembling the monster that is said to lurk in these dark and very deep waters. This unidentified image “is about the size of a small raft and appears to poke above or float on top of the water,” a spokesperson for Google explained what their team saw.
With technology allowing man to go where no man has gone before, one of these days Nessie will be captured in all her glory in a clear image if she really does exist. Interest in the Loch Ness Monster has never waned and once every few years or so interest in this deep water fable sparks when someone comes along with a blurry photo or a terrific tale. Is Nessie real? There is no reason she can’t be, but until you see her smiling face, the images, like the one picked up on Google Street View, are all you have to go on!
