Did the satellite took pictures of the Loch Ness monster?. / August 28, 2009 /

Under the watchful eye of a satellite photo came across the elusive monster of Loch Ness, or, as his fans affectionately nicknamed the total unknown, Nessie. At least, it believes in the British Jason Cook, who first discovered the amazing shot at the satellite and sent it to the newspaper The Sun.

Cook stumbled upon the photo by accident. Coordinates image on an electronic map of the world — 57 ° 12’52 .13 «north latitude, 4 ° 34’14 .16» west longitude.

— When I saw this shot, could not believe my eyes. I immediately remembered the classic descriptions of Nessie — all the same! — Shared his impressions of Cook.

Based on the extent of the map object whose shape can be seen in the picture 37-kilometer lake is almost 20 meters in length on each side visible appendages that look like four legs, and back stretches elongated tail. These parameters fit the description of a hypothetical plesiosaurs — Detachment of fossil reptiles, which, like sex, some researchers, is the Loch Ness monster.

Satellite images are already interested parties Loch Ness Project — a group of scientists collecting data in support of the theory of the existence of the monster. One of the scientists, Adrian Shain, said that «the photo looks very intriguing» and the band will certainly study it. It is possible that the image recognize random light effect or a water-resistant foam, as it was already more than once with similar «sensations».
