The mystery of Loch Ness: Nessie was first seen in 565 AD

Observations of the Loch Nessi monster, or Nessie as it is affectionately known, have been reported for centuries.

However, it wasn't until the 20th century that the monster became an international sensation, thanks in part to a series of high-profile sightings and photographs. We asked ChatGPT when people first saw Nessie and were shocked by the answer.

One of the earliest recorded sightings of Nessie dates back to 565 AD, when a Christian missionary named St Columba allegedly encountered the creature in the Ness River during his mission to convert Picts to Christianity. According to the story, Columba saw a large beast that was about to attack a man crossing the river. He crossed himself and ordered the beast to "turn back quickly". The creature obeyed and disappeared into the water.

At the beginning of the 20th century there were several Nessie sightings that attracted public attention. One of the most famous occurred in 1933, when husband and wife George and Margaret Spicer reported seeing a large humpbacked creature run across the road in front of their car near a lake. They described the creature as about 4 feet tall and 25 feet long, with a long neck and a small head.

In 1934, a photograph taken by a London surgeon called Robert Kenneth Wilson became world famous. The photograph, which became known asthe 'surgeon's photograph', showed a creature with a long neck floating in a lake. However, the photograph has since been debunked as a hoax, likely involving a toy submarine or other object.

Despite the debunking of the surgeon's photo, Nessie sightings continued to be reported over the years, with many people claiming to have seen a large unknown creature floating in Loch waters. Some researchers suggest that these sightings can be explained by misidentification of known animals, such as otters or large fish, while others believe there may be an entire population of unknown creatures inhabiting the Loch. However, there is no concrete scientific evidence for the existence of Nessie, and many sightings have been explained as hoaxes or misidentifications.

What is the Loch Ness Monster. Does it exist?

The Loch Ness Monster is a legendary creature said to inhabit Loch Ness, a large freshwater body of water in the Scottish Highlands. The monster is often described as a large, long-necked and hunchbacked creature, sometimes referred to as 'Nessie'.

Despite numerous reports of sightings of the creature over the years, there is no concrete scientific evidence that the Loch Ness Monster actually exists. Many of the reported sightings have been explained as mistaken identifications of known animals, such as otters or large fish, or as hoaxes.

Despite this, the legend of the Loch Ness Monster continues to capture the public imagination and attract tourists to the area. Scientists have also conducted various surveys of Loch Ness using sonar and other imaging techniques, trying to determine if there is any evidence of a large unknown creature in the water, but so far none have been conclusive.
