Nessie Caught on Tape

There is new video footage of the Loch Ness Monster, said to be among the finest footage caught to date. From CNN:

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) — Like tartan, bagpipes, and shortbread Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster is as much an emblem as a tourist draw.

And now Nessie’s back.

An amateur scientist has captured what Loch Ness Monster watchers say is among the finest footage ever taken of the elusive mythical creature reputed to swim beneath the waters of Scotland’s most mysterious lake.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this jet black thing, about 45-feet (15 meters) long, moving fairly fast in the water,” said Gordon Holmes, the 55-year-old a lab technician from Shipley, Yorkshire, who took the video this past Saturday.

He said it moved at about 6 mph (10 kph) and kept a fairly straight course.

“My initial thought is it could be a very big eel, they have serpent-like features and they may explain all the sightings in Loch Ness over the years.”

Click though to take a look at the video. It’s certainly interesting.
