Our favorite little robot that has been traveling the arid, red “plains” of Mars has disovered something peculiar, to say at least. NASA has revealed a photo of a strange-looking rock formation taken by the Curiosity rover while approaching the “Pahrump Hills”, one of the discovered mountain-like dunes on Mars. While searching the area and taking photographs, desperately hoping to find alien life, the rover spotted something very interesting looking: a piece of rock that looks like it was either made by someone (or something) or left there intentionally by someone (or something).
The latest Curiosity rover discovery is a piece of rock that has round “lobes” which make it look like a traffic signal. It also has a round spherical stone around it. The weird-looking rock was spotted by Joseph White, a UFO enthusiast. Curiosity took the photo at 1:08 am on September 19.
Joseph White said that: “I have been following the images from NASA since the start and I flick through them on the NASA website every day. I saw this one and I thought ‘Hang on, that looks a bit strange.”
White added that he thinks this Curiosity Rover discovery looks like something made by an intelligent species and he wrote on his Youtube journal that this is “clearly intelligently designed”. Others believe that most likely it’s just a rock that just happens to look a bit unusual. It doesn’t take too much for UFO enthusiasts to start theorizing around this rock and we expect to hear plenty of “theories” in the near future.
This is not the first unusual Curiosity Rover discovery. Earlier this week, someone noticed a weird spherical rock in one of the pictures taken on Mars. The rock looks like a ball but NASA specialists stated that it’s just a round rock formed by the process of concretion.
Since it arrived on Mars, the Curiosity rover has come across many interesting things: things like curious rock formations. It is still looking to find any life form or signs of water existence on the Red Planet.
The Curiosity rover was launched on November 26, 2011 and landed on Mars in August 2012.
