Loch Ness Monster, Scotland
A mysterious 7.5 meter long object detected by a captain's sonar imaging system has lead some to think that the image could be proof of the existence of the elusive monster that is said to live in the loch's murky depths.

Mike Bell spotted the object at a depth of around 35 meters on the scanning equipment on his boat, while taking a group of tourists out on the loch on June 27th.

The 24-year-old skipper circled around to confirm his discovery, but upon reaching the same spot he found that the unidentified mass had completely disappeared.

Talking to the local press about his discovery, Mike said, "I would like to think this is our creature, Nessie. It's my first year being the skipper in the boat. In five months I've never seen it or had something that big on the sonar."

The news comes after it was revealed that there have already been eight alleged sightings of the infamous Loch Ness Monster already this year, but some think that the inexperienced captain could have mistaken a shoal of fish for Nessie. This could explain how the large mass simply vanished - the fish scattered after the boat passed above them.

Mike said, "it's my first sighting of Nessie and I think my dad is a wee bit jealous as he has never seen it. My dad is the more experienced skipper who has been doing this for a few years and has said he's never seen it that big before on the sonar."

If it's not a shoal of fish, then what else could it be? There are no other creatures in the loch that are seven meters long... that we know of. Mike is pretty convinced, "an object of that size I would think is way too big for the normal species in the loch. It must have been about five or six minutes we spent trying to pick up this creature again."
