A creature believed to be the legendary Kraken may have been spotted on Google Earth.  It was spotted in Deception Island off the coast of Antarctica. The enormous mysterious monster was seen on April 9 while a conspiracy theorist looked at the coordinates 63° 2’56.73″S 60°57’32.38″W in Google Earth.

“This looks like a Kraken,” posts web site author Scott Waring on UFO Sightings Daily.  “I used Google ruler and it says this is 30 meters (100 feet) from head to end, but this looks like just the mid area of a giant squid, which means it could be 60+ meters long with tentacles. That sounds like a Kraken to me.”

It is not known how Waring got the coordinates. The sighting can be seen in a video uploaded on YouTube.

In legends, the Kraken was an enormous creature that attacked ships with its terrifying tentacles in the North Sea. This mythical creature has been featured in many movies.

Waring initially thought that the spotted creature is another famous animal called Plesiosaur. Scientists say the extinct animal lived 205 million years ago.

“No idea what this is but it’s circulating a few places right now and when I saw it, it IMMEDIATELY made me think of a Plesiosaur fin,” adds the author. “Was hard to see from the images I was seeing so I went there on my own, to Google Earth.”

There have been other explanations for this sighting. Another conspiracy theory posted on UFO Sightings Daily says that it looks more like a UFO underwater.

‘But if you look more closely it looks like an artificially made object, an underwater UFO coming out of the ocean,’ an unknown author posted on the website.

As of now, whether the object is the legendary Kraken, the Plesiosaur or a UFO remains unclear. Scientists around the world have not commented on this issue.
