Loch Ness monster spotted on Apple Maps? (It actually is a boat)

UPDATE: A version of the photo with better resolution reveals that the so called Loch Ness Monster is in reality, a boat.

While Apple Maps may never reach the same status that Google Maps, or HERE Maps has, it might become known for finding something that no other mapping application has. Believe it or not, there are many out there who claim that Apple's mapping app shows the Loch Ness Monster. No, this is not a belated April Fools joke. Satellite pictures taken for Apple, apparently show some type of creature in the waters of the famous Scottish lake.

The image does not appear on Google Maps. And while some say that the "monster" is nothing more than the wake from a boat, there are no images revealing any part of a boat nearby. And since other boats do appear in satellite pictures taken in the general area, the photo of the Loch Ness Monster was not created by an imaging error.

In February, Gary Campbell, president of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club, said that no sightings had been reported for 18 months. That is something that had not happened since 1925. The Apple Maps image was discovered by Loch Ness Monster fan Andy Dixon who said that finding the picture was strictly a fluke. "It was purely by accident that I came across the image," Dixon said. "I was trawling through satellite transmissions of different parts of the country and I thought I would try Loch Ness."

We wouldn't be surprised to find out that members of the Bigfoot fan club are scouring satellite images right this second, to find one with that elusive monster in it.
