The Loch Ness Monster on Google Maps

Nessie on Google Maps

UK tabloid The Sun claim to have found the Loch Ness monster in the satellite imagery of Google Maps and Google Earth. If you click on the image above you can have a close look at the image directly in Google Maps.

I don't want to influence your view about this but The Sun also claimed in February to have found Atlantis on Google Maps. They claimed the lines in the image below were the walls of the lost city.

Unfortunately for The Sun a Google spokeswoman later announced that the lines were the result of the sonar used by boats to map the ocean floor.

However it is true that Google Maps Street View has made a number of irrefutable UFO sightings:

At Miller's Point, near Sydney Harbour

In Tokyo

In Melbourne, Australia

In San Francisco

In Dallas

And in Virginia Beach, VA, USA

If you still insist on keeping hold of your rational disbelief then I'd like to hear your explanation for this amazing Street View of a time travelling dinosaur in Indianapolis.

That's clearly Nellie. With her head sticking out of the water. I don't know what else it could be!

Great UFO sitings too. Thanks for posting!

It looks like a boat to me, I wonder what the zoom level is?

Is the Loch Ness monster supposed to be immortal?

Not sure about really old monsters. Like the dinosaur too.

As for the ufo's...

The one in San Fransisco looks like an image blending problem (It was after all the first city shot in Street View).

The others are most likely sun (light) flares caused by internal lens reflection at certain angles.

As for the ufo parked in my driveway... I'll pay $103 for someone to tow it away.

Nessie in Italian attic mystery
Mystery drawing may have been done by master illusionist

ARTISTIC CONUNDRUM: The 1949 painting entitled Loch Ness Monster and Black
Man without a Face
More Pictures

Our Loch Ness Monster is famed the world over, and pops up in very strange
circumstances from time to time.

Now she has surfaced at the centre of an art mystery in Italy.

This centres around a charcoal drawing dating from 1949, which is described as
Loch Ness Monster and Black Man without a Face, and which could possibly have
been drawn by famous Dutch artist, MC Escher.

This story of the mystery painting starts in 2005 in Volturara, a small
village in the Italian province of Avellino, where traffic police officer
Raffaele De Feo lives.

When clearing out his family’s attic, he found what he called “the strange

Initially he did not take any notice of it, but later, in removing the frame,
he sees an inscription on the back of the picture, signed by MC Escher, which
reads: “With all my heart to a friendly remembrance.”

Now some Italians are urging art experts to authenticate the work as being
done by Maurits Cornelis Escher, nicknamed “Mauk", and contacted the Press and
Journal to spread the world that Nessie “lives” in Italy.

Escher (1898-1972) was hailed by many as one of the world's most famous
graphic artists. His art is enjoyed by millions of people all over the world,
as can be seen on the many web sites on the internet. And for several years he
lived and travelled in Italy.

He is most famous for his so-called impossible structures, such as Ascending
and Descending, Relativity, his Transformation Prints, such as Metamorphosis I,
Metamorphosis II and Metamorphosis III, Sky & Water I or Reptiles.
