In their bid to find life on Mars, space enthusiasts have been flicking through photos taken by NASA’s Curiosity rover and, although they haven’t spotted any aliens, they have found numerous bizarre objects and animals on the planet’s surface.
That’s what UFO buffs are claiming anyway and who are we to doubt that mice and monkeys are scurrying across the face of the Red Planet?
I mean, just look at the watertight evidence.
Space spotters have already claimed that NASA are ignoring clear evidence of a floating spoon, a giant scorpion, a space crab, a massive bear, a suspicious lady, an astro lizard, a Buddha statue and a Martian version of Stonehenge – all of which sound totally legit.
Now, according to the Mirror Online, space enthusiast Joe White, 45, has picked out a dark shape which he claims looks like a large mouse scurrying across the surface of the planet. Clearly it’s on the wrong planet – the moon is the one made out of cheese, right?
Joe, a space video journalist from Bristol, said:
It is what looks like a very large rodent in Gale Crater sitting on a ridge, plain as day. It may be an optical illusion but it has big ears, nose and eyes visible. It resembles a very large mouse or gerbil, and would be about two or three feet long.
I mean, sure Joe, it could be an optical illusion but Biker Mice from Mars had to be based on something, after all.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, the Express are now reporting that a monkey has been spotted sitting on a rock on Mars too. What a time to be alive!
Scott C Waring, editor of UFO Sightings Daily, described the monkey as “a figure sitting down looking to the right” which “looks very monkey-like in its appearance”. Incredible scenes.
These “experts” are incredulous that the NASA rover hasn’t explored these phenomenons further to get more evidence, and they claim NASA are denying the clear evidence of life on the planet which is right before their eyes.
For their part, NASA has blamed the array of anomalies on pareidolia – a phenomenon which means the brain tricks the eye into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns and textures. Basically, they’re saying all the weird animals are just oddly shaped rocks. Sorry about that, everyone.
