‘Alien skull’ spotted on Mars
The panoramic NASA camera known as Spirit has snapped the above picture, which has many UFO buffs claiming that an alien skull has been captured on film! Apparently, what at first appears to be a rocky landscape, actually reveals a mysterious object that looks like it has two eye sockets and a nasal cavity.
With this photo, chat rooms are lighting up with talk of the possibility of photographic evidence of Martian life. According to the http://sport-hansa.com/, one alien-spotter speculated: “The skull is 15 cm with binocular eyes 5 cm apart. The cranial capacity is approximately 1400 cc. There appears to be a narrow pointed small mouth, so this creature most likely is a carnivore.” Read more of this story here: Alien Skull Spotted on Mars
