Apple Maps Reveals Lock Ness Monster?

Quote:
Loch Ness monster experts are all a-flurry this week at the thought that they might have located the mysterious Loch Ness monster through modern technology. An image on Apple Maps, when zoomed in very tightly, reveals a gargantuan shape with fins swimming in Loch Ness.

According to The Daily Mail,

For six months the image has been studied by experts at the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club, where excitement is mounting after various explanations for it were ruled out . . . leaving them to conclude it is 'likely' to be the elusive beast.

One mystery debunker and no-fun-haver says that the supposed Nessie image is actually a leftover "boat wake." But Nessie truthers claim that they've already consulted boat experts. There are a lot of experts getting involved here, all with tenuous attachment to the word "expert."

The real mystery, though, is that Apple Maps, who can't even find its own relevance next to Google Maps, was the program to discover the long rumored mystery beast. Suspicious.

Doesn't look like a sand bar or bank to me, it looks like one of those barely visible coulds on a blue sky day, one of the barely visible whispy ones.

Id say wake but it doesn't look like any boat wakes I have seen.

Mainly because there is no boat there or even close.

Load of bollocks, if the monster was real somebody would have seen it by now, it's not as if the Loch Ness is thousands of miles long and wide

Re: Apple Maps Reveals Lock Ness Monster?

I read it's fake. There was a boat there and someone just photoshopped it out.

Not photoshopped, just poor quality image, due to the lack of contrast, the boat (most likely white) got "lost" in the track of waves left by the boat itself:
Click image for larger version

Name:	boat.jpg
Views:	674
Size:	15.5 KB
ID:	534777

Name:  boat2.jpg
Views: 498
Size:  5.2 KB

the "bluish" appearance may be due to image stitching: in some points satellite images are overlayed, and if you overlay an image like this one with another image of the same area in which the boat isn't there but just water, then that's what you'll get.

Layer 1 + Layer 2

And so on.
