WATCH: 120-metre ‘sea monster’ spotted on Google Earth


A mysterious creature was spotted on Google Earth near Antartica, causing frenzy among people to figure out what actually it is.

Some calling it ‘sea monster’ while others believe it’s a big sea creature. Some have a more rational explanation for the strange object. But no one could come up with certain validation to the anonymous creature.

Scott Waring of UFO Sighting Daily thinks it could be a sea monster.



“This looks like The Kraken. I used Google ruler and it says this is 30 meters (100 feet) from head to end, but the end looks just like the mid area of a giant squid which means it could be 60+ meters long with tentacles. That sounds like a Kraken to me,” he wrote.

A kraken is a mythical tenticled monster, known in tales of the sea for drowning people and ships.


The picture was taken near Deception Island in the South Shetlands and appears to show a ‘fin’.

Plesiosaurs were marine reptiles that are known to have first swam in oceans about 205 million years ago and were especially common during the Jurassic Period , said The Mirror.

They are believed to have died out about 66 million years ago.



Another discussion about the image on other website claimed the image showed the tip of a Kraken’s tail. And it said the picture could prove the existence of a 120 metre-long monster.

However, grainy satellite images often still show images which the more paranoid of minds can mistake for ships or monsters from outer space.

Do you think it is a 120-metre long monster? Decide yourself
