A British enthusiast who tracks the Loch Ness Monster has been officially “certified” by the lake’s scenic management after he filmed a video of the Monster on April 22. According to the video, the monster is about 30 feet long, making it the largest image ever taken.
Eoin O ‘faodhagain, 55, has reportedly been obsessed with tracking the loch ness monster for decades. By his own account, Ian saw the creature for the first time last January and again in early April. Ian captured the video, which lasted less than three minutes, of his third sighting of the creature on Urquhart Bay in loch ness on April 22.
The video shows a dark object floating motionless on the surface of the calm water, then slowly submerging into the water and disappearing within two minutes.
Ian said the video was special because there were no boats on the lake and no waves to disturb the creature. He visually measured the monster to be about 30 feet long and about 4 or 5 feet high above the surface.
The video has been officially “certified” by the loch ness scenic management as the largest ever image of the creature.
Sightings of the loch ness monster were reported 18 times in 2019, the most since 1983. According to a 2018 survey, the loch ness monster earned Scotland £41 million that year.
But last September, after the most extensive study to date, an international DNA team from the University of Otago in New Zealand announced that the long-held mystery of the loch ness monster had finally been solved — and the only reasonable answer was that the legendary monster turned out to be a giant eel.
