National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Curiosity rover has captured a strange white light dancing across the horizon of Mars and four blobs hovering in the sky.
While it is certainly a subject of curiosity, NASA and photography experts insist they are nothing more than blemishes on the images, picked up by the camera lens sitting on the rover at a distance of 350 million miles.
NASA has not commented on any of the sightings so far, but alien hunters have suggested that these are alien ships monitoring humans’ baby steps into the universe, the Daily Mail reported.
YouTube user StephenHannardADGUK, part of a group called Alien Disclosure UK, spotted the anomalies on the images, publicly available on the U.S.space agency’s website, and applied a series of filters to try and shed light on the mystery.
“Four objects caught by Curiosity were very difficult to make out on the original image, so I have used a few filters to highlight,” the paper quoted him as saying, referring to the four pinpoints of light pictured in the skies of Mars.
“What are these four objects? UFOs, dust particles, or something else? As always you decide,” the user said.
According to the Huffington Post, video analyst Marc Dantonio, who has worked on projects for the U.S. government, said these were simply ‘dead pixels’ in the image — a regular problem in the realm of graphics. Another video appears to show an object rising from the horizon, followed shortly afterwards by another small object.
Curiosity, a six-heeled vehicle the size of a compact car, landed inside a vast, ancient, impact crater near the Mars’ equator on August 6 after an eight-month, 570-million-km voyage through space.
