Tomb with cross found on Mars

Tomb with cross found on Mars

The Curiosity rover, which has been exploring the Red Planet for almost two years, never ceases to amaze us with unique and extraordinary pictures. In the last batch, those searching for extraterrestrial civilization have found what appears to be a tomb topped with a cross.

According to one Internet user, nicknamed Truthseeker, who has not only examined the photos thoroughly but also made a video, the religious symbol on the surface of Mars is nothing other than a wooden cross and the small plate beneath it looks like a headstone.

"I am dumbfounded, there's not much to say," Truthseeker says. "There's another cross, I mean, come on, that's just clear…everybody can see that, you don't even have to do any editing or nothing."

"It looks like a plate on a grave. This is not the first cross, which you can see on the photos from Mars, published by NASA," cryptozoologynews.com quotes the network user.

Earlier this year, in April, another photo sent by Curiosity caught imagination of the internet community. It clearly showed a beam of light emanating from the Red Planet's horizon which led many to claim that proves the existence of life on Mars.

"This is not a glare from the sun, nor is it an artifact of the photo process," claimed the image's discoverer, Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily.

"Look closely at the bottom of the light," Waring wrote. "It has a very flat surface giving us 100% indiction [sic] it is from the surface. Sure NASA could go and investigate it, but hey, they are not on Mars to discovery life, but there to stall its discovery."

NASA explained that the images of bright spots taken on April 2 and April 3 are likely to be a product of the sun's glare or cosmic rays. It insisted that similar glints of light are seen all the time in images taken by the Curiosity rover.

"In the thousands of images we've received from Curiosity, we see ones with bright spots nearly every week," said Justin Maki of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. "These can be caused by cosmic-ray hits or sunlight glinting from rock surfaces, as the most likely explanations," he added.

Curiosity is not the only one sending pictures of odd objects from Mars. Another American rover, that has been researching the Red Planet since 2004, Opportunity, made a photo of a strange black and white stone that appeared out of nowhere nearby. The "guest" was noticed by Vitaliy Egorov, a famous Russian "Martianologist blogger."
