NASA recently released a high-definition photo from Mars that was taken by their Opportunity Rover.
But this picture ended up revealing something even more shocking.
In the picture’s rocky landscape, there appears to be an object that seems unnatural and out of place.
See for yourself:
Conservative Tribune reports:
The photo was posted online to the social sharing website Reddit, where a discussion about what the object could be took off. Some users thought it looked like “like light glimmering off of a genuine spaceship” while others speculated that the object looked as though it had a hatch of some sort similar to Luke Skywalker’s speeder on Tatooine in the original “Star Wars.”
User Prosaic Origin posted the photo to Reddit with the question: “Uh nasa? UFO Caught on Mars Rover Mission? Is This Real?”
User jrtv wrote: “Amazing picture. When was this captured?”
User sataz was a little more down to earth: “Compared to the size of the tire tracks, the object must be pretty small. Some piece of the rover or other earthly object perhaps?”
UFO Investigations Manual Nigel Watson told the U.K. Daily Mail that the clarity of the image will cause problems.
“It might look like a spaceship, but as usual the picture is out-of-focus and there is no guide to tell the viewer how big or small this object is,” he said, adding that the object could be a piece of debris, such as its heat shield, from the Mars Rover or its sky crane landing system.
“Unless we get more detailed information this is another case of wishful thinking,” he said.
