ALIEN hunters claim to have found evidence of extraterrestrial activity on Mars in official photos snapped by one of NASA’s rover.
The supposed alien heads feature in a black-and-white photograph taken by the Mars Curiosity rover. On the 506th day of its mission, Sol 506, the rover photographed a barren and boulder-strewn field. But self-appointed UFO expert Scott C Waring believes the NASA image features alien artefacts hidden in plain sight.
In a bizarre analysis shared to his blog UFO Sightings Daily, Mr Waring picked out two rocks which he believes are alien faces.
And although at first glance, there is nothing unusual about the rocks, the conspiracy theorist thinks one of them resembles a dragon.
He said: “I first had to clean up the photo. What I mean is there are lots of lines in the photo, so I got rid of them.
“Then I added light and found that there were two faces in the bottom centre of the photo.

“One face is dragon-like, I painted it yellow with a blue eye.
“The other is wearing a mask or tattoo and it is human-like, although I do not see the chin but can see the lower lip.
“I assume the chin is below the surface of the dirt.”
Mr Waring then said he can see a human-like nose, forehead and lips.
But appearances can be deceiving as he argued the face is not human.
He said: “It’s alien and this mask or tattoo seems to be thick and probably has a function of some sort.
“It almost appears to be a superhero of sorts and perhaps it was.”
In Mr Waring’s opinion, the heads are both nearly five feet tall (1.5m) and could have been part of bigger statues.
Even more bizarrely, he suggested they may have once belonged to living beings.

Mr Waring said: “But if they were alive… then they stood almost two floors tall.
“It’s a shame we can only see the heads. It would be something to see when it was whole.”
Unfortunately, there is no evidence life has ever existed on Mars – certainly not intelligent, developed life.
Some NASA scientists believe simple microbes may have evolved on Mars billions of years.
But the Red Planet has never been home to a species that could have built complex statues.
Instead, Mr Waring’s discoveries are most likely a product of pareidolia.
Pareidolia describes the tendency to see shapes and patterns, like faces, where they do not exist.
NASA said: “Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where people see recognizable shapes in clouds, rock formations, or otherwise unrelated objects or data.
“There are many examples of this phenomenon on Earth and in space.”
