There is so much we don't know about Mars, and that's part of the reason NASA has been exploring the Red Planet with the rovers they've sent up there. The incredible technology that the space agency has landed on Mars has sent back tons of information that is helping scientists better understand the planet, but the rovers have also sent back some very curious images. Among them, a photo of an "alien boot," metallic wreckage, a flying UFO, a mysterious doorway, "alien arms," strange carvings and what looks like an actual alien. Well a new item can be added to that list - an ancient "alien" statue.
Scott C. Waring of UFO Sightings Daily discovered the sculpture by zooming way in on a large photo released by NASA. In a video describing what he found, he shows a faraway mountain where a rock seems to have toppled down the incline and come to a rest on its side. He points out how it looks like it is a statue with eyes, a nose, a mouth and a crown or a hat. One of the eyes is out of place because, as he explains, it was dislodged when the rock fell. He also suggests the face could have reptilian characteristics and the creature it depicts might've lived in water, which is possible since NASA believes there once was water on Mars.
Commenters were impressed by the video, with one comparing the statue to the sculptures on Easter Island, and another suggesting it stood high on the mountain and looked over a city like the statue of Jesus in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
While something like this might seem far-fetched, it isn't too crazy a concept. In fact, even the CIA once claimed there were ancient civilizations on Mars.
If you want to zoom in and see the rock for yourself, you can do it on this large image that the sculpture is in.
