Mars Rover Photo Shows ‘Human Shadow,’ Or Maybe It Doesn’t

Posted: 01/27/2015 1:16 pm EST

From rats to skulls to a disappearing doughnut, so-called “ufologists” claim to have seen all sorts of strange things in photos taken by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover.

Now they’re saying that a rover photo taken in 2012 (see below) shows the shadow of a human or human-like alien “messing with” the rover.

“The person has no helmet and their short hair is visible and in high detail,” Taiwan-based ufologist Scott Waring wrote in a post on his blog UFO Sightings Daily. “The person has on air tanks on their back and a suit that covers most of the body except the hair.”

Waring goes on to wonder if the image indicates that the rover isn’t on Mars at all but right here on Earth–or that humanoid aliens live on the Red Planet.

Of course, there’s always the (more likely) possibility that the shadow onlylooks likethat of a human form. It makes sense that our brains would interpret the image this way. Humans are wired to spot patterns and even faces in images–it’s a phenomenon called pareidolia.

Here’s the same shadow from a slightly different angle taken about 28 seconds later. Yes, it still looks vaguely like a person. But if it is, “he or she” managed to keep perfectly still, because the figure hasn’t budged even slightly.

Our verdict? It’s just the rover’s own shadow.

Aliens On Mars?

Lizards!
Oh, NASA rover Curiosity, you make us so curious. Curious about images like this, which appear to show either camouflaged or fossilized lizards running around on Mars. A blogger caught this image, what do you think?
Rats!
OK, this really does look like some sort of rodent. NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity shot a photo of this little guy earlier this year. But after a closer look, and a little common sense, it’s probably a rock.
LIZARD RATS!
The rock rats and rock lizards have begun to breed. It is only a matter of time before they… wait… WAIT, WHAT IS THAT?!
Computer, ENHANCE!
Oh no. It’s too late. The rock rat lizards are already here.
Beautiful Mars Ladies
The Internet has long been crazy about this photo, snapped by the NASA rover Spirit. She has a terrible choice in dress color though, doesn’t she?
Faces
The conspiracies go back to July 25, 1976, when this shot of the “Face on Mars” was taken by an orbiter. Do you believe yet?
Hearts
Awwww. These are real photos taken of Mars’ surface. But were they designed by extraterrestrials who know the human concept of love? Only the ETs know.
Alien Heads
If it’s a skull, it appears to have several eye sockets, a nose, and an embarrassingly large forehead. If it’s a rock, it’s probably not even a rock. IT’S A ROCK… LOBSTER!
