Google Earth user Jason Cook claims he found the legendary Loch Ness monster while browsing through satellite images of the Scottish Highlands. Cooke said the 30m long oblong shape followed by thin strands is actually the highly contested creature supposed to inhabit Loch Ness.

Nessie enthusiasts believe the creature is a plesiosaur – a reptile that appeared at the start of the Jurassic period and is widely believed to be extinct. Researchers on the Loch Ness project, called the new images ‘really intriguing’ and deserved further study.

The Loch Ness Monster has been a subject of mass intrigue and debate since it came to the world’s attention in 1933. Scientists have widely written off the idea as a modern-day myth and continued sightings as pranks, yet it has remained a contested phenomenon for almost 80 years.

The latest “sighting” can be seen on Google Earth using the co-ordinates Latitude 57°12’52.13″N, Longitude 4°34’14.16″W.
