Cutting-edge technology may have just added credence to a long-standing legend in Scotland's Loch Ness. A satellite orbiting Earth and using Apple's satellite map app may have provided proof that there's a Nessie to be found in the Scottish Highlands. The photos, at the very least - are remarkable.
Cutting-edge technology may have just added credence to a long-standing legend in Scotland's Loch Ness.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The photographs were captured by two different amateur cryptozoologists scanning different satellites transmitting images of the earth from space.
The location was just south of Dores and were beamed from Apple's satellite map app and could only be viewed on some iPads and iPhones.
A satellite high in the atmosphere, accessed using Apple's satellite map app, may have provided proof that the legend lives on - with amazing images of a creature swimming below the surface of the world famous loch.
Monster hunters Peter Thain, from Northumberland and Andy Dixon from County Durham, were pleased with what they saw.
"It was purely by accident that I came across the image. I was trawling through satellite transmissions of different parts of the country and I thought I would try Loch Ness," Dixon said.
The location was just south of Dores, were beamed from Apple's satellite map app and could only be viewed on some iPads and iPhones.
"I was a believer in Nessie even before this but I had never been. Now I am so excited, I can't wait to get up north and pay a visit - with a camera of course.
"Unfortunately I have not seen anything since but I will keep looking."
The photographs were captured by two different amateur Nessie hunters scanning different satellites transmitting images of the earth from space - Peter Thain from Northumberland and Andy Dixon County Durham.
Longtime Nessie-hunter Campbell declared "We first received Peter's information at the back end of last year but took some time to try to work out what it was.
"Initially it was difficult because it doesn't appear on all online satellite images - only some of them on Apple products.
"When Andy got in touch at the beginning of the year, we finally managed to locate a device that had the image on it and asked some boating experts to look at it.
This picture, taken by Dr Kenneth Wilson in 1934, is said to show the Loch Ness Monster.
"They confirmed that while it looks like a boat wake, it cannot be a boat as there is no hull or superstructure visible. This is confirmed by the fact that there are clear images of other boats in the pictures.
"After Nessie 'going missing' for 18 months, it's great to see her back.
"Furthermore, the use of satellite technology means that if Nessie is just swimming below the surface like in this case, we can still pick her up."
Nessie was on definitely in hiatus last year. Nessie was first spotted in 565 A.D. and has been seen 1036 times in the last 1,500 years.
