The newest Loch Ness Monster sighting of 2023 was captured on video recently by a Visit Inverness Loch Ness webcam.
Eoin O’Faodhagain, who has had around 20 sightings of the Loch Ness Monster since 2017 and regularly monitors the body of water for Nessie sightings is convinced the creature is real.
In the new video, shapes appear to emerge from the water near the shore. Based on the footage, it’s estimated that the shapes were up to 10 feet in length.
“If it is Nessie, I would rate the sighting as very good and visually clear due to the closeness of the images to the webcam,” O’Faodhagain told the Mirror. “Really Nessie could not be any closer to the webcam unless she was out of the water, up on the grass verge.
“I tried to rationalize what I was watching and nothing else apart from Nessie ticked the boxes.”
He continued, “It certainly appears that something comes up out of the water that is quite big and long. They look very alive. I don’t think it is debris – they rise and submerge simultaneously.”
A representative of the lodges on Loch Ness confirmed that the objects weren’t people.
“We aren’t aware of any of the guests swimming or paddle-boarding at that time,” they said.
“I wouldn’t imagine you’d get an eel that big. There is the possibility of seals and otters but it’s hard to say. There has been a few odd sightings on our cameras since they have been up and running.”
Earlier this year, a mathematician claimed to have ruled out the idea that the creature in the loch is an eel.
He determined that the probability of finding an eel approximately 3.3 feet long in Loch Ness at around one in 50,000 and the probability of an eel over 20 feet in length being in the loch is “essentially zero.”
Other theories that have gained traction recently are that the Loch Ness Monster is a type of undiscovered turtle or a plesiosaur that somehow has survived over the decades.
The wildest theory is that creatures like the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot actually exist in a parallel universe, which would explain why they are so elusive and have never been captured.
