On the 6th of August 2012 NASA sent their $2.5 billion Curiosity rover on Mars. It has been on the Red Planet ever since, helping scientists determine whether Mars possesses the necessary environment and chemical ingredients for microbial life just as Earth does. However, it appears that instead of helping, the rover has caused a series of alarms to those who believe in UFOs.
The most recent “UFO on Mars” reports state that the Curiosity rover has caught a UFO on camera in the Martian sky. The object in question has a conical shape and has left a shimmering trace of its tail. It appears on one of the photographs the rover took on the 5th of January and is extremely bright on the clear sky background. Another photograph was taken by the rover from the same angle 6 minutes after the “UFO” one and the object can no longer be seen in the rover’s range.
Supporters of the UFO theory deny the possibility that the object could have been a meteor or a shooting star because of its unique tail.
