UFO buffs and researchers reckon they’ve spotted an alien sunbathing on a rock in an official NASA snap.
The photo shows a small, blurry figure with a pink body on Mars’ rocky surface.
NASA first shared the image in April 2021, but it was only in 2022 that self-styled UFO and alien expert Scott Waring noticed the supposed alien sighting.
Speaking about the mysterious figure, Waring said: “Everyone here knows I love to comb through NASA photos. Well, I came across something unique…something that is 100% proof of intelligent life.
“There is a person laying down watching the NASA Mars rover from a safe distance away. The person is about 1 foot tall, .3 meters and is laying down, pinkish upper chest, neck and face, radish hair, wearing a dark suit, but has a grey object over one shoulder…looks like a backpack of some sort.
“There are even footprints behind the person leading up to the location they chose to lay down at.”
Waring quickly posted this image on his blog, UFO Sightings Daily, where he carefully analysed it for his followers.
From his observations, he concluded that the creature in the photo was lying down while watching the probe. There are even footprints behind it, leading to the spot where it decided to lie down, he claims.
CNET’s space expert highlights that Mars is a harsh place, and so far, no signs of ancient tiny life forms have been found there, despite ongoing studies.
Some might say this supposed alien figure is just a rock formation that looks a bit like an alien. But why let facts spoil the fun?
This is actually something called pareidolia. It’s when we see familiar things in unclear images. It’s all about our brain spotting patterns it recognises in blurry pictures and objects, especially seeing faces where there aren’t any. A good example of pareidolia is when we think we can see face-like shapes on the moon or Mars.
