Loch Ness monster may be an optical illusion

The Loch Ness monster may be an ordinary optical illusion. This is the conclusion of the expert on the paranormal, Jonathan Bright.

Bright believes that the long history of the Loch Ness monster may be the usual optical illusion, which in one form or another is extremely common on Earth. In particular, the paranormal researcher compared the Nassi phenomenon to the "floating ship" that recently blew up the minds of a large number of people. The Daily Mail reports on the real and unreal around us.

According to an expert, a viral photo of the ship, not so long ago taken off the coast of Scotland, could explain the mystery of the Loch Ness monster. Jonathan Bright has stated that the images of Nessie may actually be “a kind of mirage " caused by reflections in the water.

"As a person who studies mysterious phenomena, we always try to rule out any natural or normal explanation first," the expert explained.

Last month, the British were seriously alarmed by a photo of a tanker that appeared to be floating in the air off the coast of Cornwall. This optical effect was caused by the fact that the color of the sea and the sky were very similar, so there was a complete feeling that the ship was floating in the clouds.

It is known that such an optical illusion is known as "Fata Morgana" and is associated with the open ocean. Translated from Italian, this phrase means "The Sorceress Morgana" and refers to ancient myths and legends. In fact, the thermal inversion between the two layers of the atmosphere is "to blame" for this effect. This leads to the projection of objects that lie on the horizon – such as islands, ships, or icebergs-but in the form of a composition of two or more images placed one above the other.

This is due to the interaction of warmer air at the top with denser cold air near the surface of the water. This creates an atmospheric channel that acts as a refractive lens. Passing through the channel, the light rays bend, creating an inverted image, on top of which, as it seems to us, the farthest projected straight image floats.

Bright personally came to Loch Ness to test his guess. Soon after the start of the observations, the expert photographed what, as it seems to him, could mislead people for many decades. The paranormal researcher plans to make another trip to Loch Ness after the coronavirus pandemic and then release the images he has obtained.

"I don't know if I'll see Nessie, but I'll keep an eye out," Bright joked.

In addition, the Briton claims that the illusion could explain many legends in the history of mankind-from UFO sightings to the ghost ship "Flying Dutchman".
