NASA has been invited to participate in a new expedition to search for the Loch Ness monster.

The Loch Ness Centre has called upon the space agency to contribute its expertise in a new attempt to locate the legendary creature.

Last year, one of the most extensive searches of Loch Ness in the Highlands concluded with a hydrophone capturing loud underwater noises and several potential sightings.

The latest expedition will take place on the 90th anniversary of Sir Edward Mountain's expedition, from May 30th to June 2nd.

Since the initial expedition in 1934 by the Watchers of the Monster, over 1,156 sightings have been recorded in the official Loch Ness monster register.

Aimee Todd from the Loch Ness Centre stated, "We are hoping that Nessie hunters around the world will help us reach the people at NASA. We are hoping to reach them through the power of social media. We are just hoping for their expert guidance to help with our ongoing quest to get answers. We have gone to UK universities. We are hoping that experts from NASA might have some advanced imaging technology to scan the loch. We would have to sit down and talk to them about how to get it here,” Sky News reported.

Volunteers during the new search will be assigned to monitor the surface, looking for breaks in the water. They will receive a briefing on what to watch for and how to record findings.

Those unable to participate in the search in person can get involved through the live cameras on the Visit Inverness Loch Ness website.

Additionally, a screening of "Loch Ness: They Created A Monster," a documentary exploring the monster-hunting frenzy in the 1970s and 1980s, will take place, along with a special Q&A with the director John MacLaverty.

There will also be a live debate with researcher Alan McKenna from Loch Ness Exploration, along with a witness account.

Nessie hunters can also venture out on a boat with Deepscan captain Alistair Matheson, the skipper for the Loch Ness Project, as well as Mr. McKenna, using a 60ft hydrophone to listen for mysterious sounds echoing from the depths of the loch.

The Loch Ness Centre is located at the old Drumnadrochit Hotel, where manager Aldie Mackay reported seeing a "water beast" in Loch Ness 90 years ago.

General manager Paul Nixon said, "Last year, we captured the world's attention with one of the biggest-ever searches for Nessie, with participants joining us from America, Canada, France, Italy, Japan and more. With unexplained noises heard, alongside possible sightings, this year we are determined to find out more about the elusive Loch Ness monster."
