An alien hunter claims to have found the image of a crash-landed mothership on the surface of Mars.
The location of the spacecraft is alleged to be near the Tharsis and Elysium volcanic areas of the Red Planet.
Conspiracy theorists spotted the strange shape in a photo of Martian terrain taken by NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor.
MARS, YouTube Video – Conspiracy theorists believe the UFO ‘crash landed’ on the surface of the planet and has been abandoned there ever since.
But they admit that they do not know the reason behind the crash, or the potential occupants of the craft.
“If we take a look at the crash site we see that the UFO, which is approximately 190 metres wide, impacted the surface at a low angle, ending up half buried in the Martian soil,” UFOvni2012 said in his YouTube video.
presentation of the alleged evidence of alien technology on Mars, entitled “UFO Crash Site on Mars, 190 Meters Wide Alien Spacecraft (MSSS).”
He added: “In 2000, the Mars Global Surveyor captured many images of the Medusae Fossae formation, and it was Steve Wingate, a NASA image specialist who discovered a very unusual object half-buried in the Martian soil, what appears to be a crashed alien craft.
“Despite frantic efforts to make his amazing finding public, the image mysteriously disappeared several times from his site, but surprisingly the image released on October 16, 2000, remained on the NASA servers till now.”
The video has now been viewed more than 107,000 times since November 21, but not all viewers were convinced by the footage.
One YouTube user wrote: “A meteorite collided with Mars and the impact crater is where you have imagined you can see an alien spacecraft, and the white area to the right is a debris field showing ice.”
But others disagreed, writing: “Looks like a base that opens the door and lets light escape into the sand dunes of Mars.”
