Fox News claims the Loch Ness Monster exists.

My Dad sent this to me, because clearly, what would I be doing watching Fox News? Regardless, this is a pretty interesting story rooted in science fiction. And I love mysteries like the Loch Ness Monster; I DVR Ghost Hunters I just love this kind of stuff.  So check this out:

This amazing image on Google Earth could be the elusive proof that the Loch Ness Monster exists.

Sun reader Jason Cooke spotted “Nessie” while browsing the Web site’s satellite photos.

The shape seen on the surface of the 22-mile Scottish loch is 65ft long and appears to have an oval body, a tail and four legs or flippers.

Some experts believe Nessie may be a Plesiosaur, an extinct marine reptile with a shape like the Google image.

“This is really intriguing. It needs further study,” said researcher Adrian Shine, of the Loch Ness Project.

Sightings have been claimed for centuries.

To see the object, enter co-ordinates Latitude 57°12’52.13″N, Longitude 4°34’14.16″W in Google Earth.

I don’t know, this looks like a boat to me, with a trail of waves behind it, but I just wish they’d use attribution on the 65ft long body.  Regardless its fun to think about.
