A blue whale was spotted off the coast of Sydney, Australia last month, in what is believed to have been the third sighting of the endangered sea creature in these waters in over a century. The whale may have measured more than 25 metres (82 feet) in length and weighed over 100 tonnes (100,000 kg).

Despite its large size, blue whales are mostly invisible even to experienced whale-watchers.
