NASA has supposedly photographed a boat on Mars, and intentionally tried to land its Curiosity Rover near it, according to conspiracy theorists.
Alien hunters believe they have spotted a boat on the dry Martian landscape, which is apparently a sign intelligent life once existed on the Red Planet. NASA has stated Mars once had flowing water – but this was upwards of 3.5 billion years ago. Nonetheless, conspiracy theorists believe they have spotted a boat on Mars and the Curiosity rover landed in a Martian village which is home to the supposed boat.
UFO hunter Scott C Waring spotted the boat in NASA images and shared his views on his blog.
Mr Waring wrote on ET Data Base: “As you see, the boat itself is just three meters away from the NASA rover landing spot. That makes this a very suspicious landing location.
“Obviously, NASA knew about this ancient boat structure and deliberately landed the rover in this location because then are on a secret mission to retrieve alien technology.
“Originally I found this back in 2016 but recently realized that this landing location couldn’t possibly be a coincidence.
“NASA never chooses a landing spot on guess. They put a lot of thought and detailed analysis into finding this spot.
“They knew about that boat structure and that it is a sign of an ancient alien village location.”
However, sceptics and NASA would say the boat and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.
Another recent finding which supposedly supports the argument of life on Mars was that of a supposed statue of a Martian god.
The apparent statue is found enclosed between the bottom of two Martian cliffs, with Mr Waring claiming it is made out of copper or a “golden metal”.
He wrote on his blog ET Data Base: “While looking over some Mars photos, I came across a strange figure hidden in the lower part of a hillside.
“The figure looks like its made of a copper or golden metal.
“I know this because the colour is very different from the colour of its surroundings.

“This was probably a god, a statue of a god that the people on Mars prayed to for protection.
“The statue itself has a head, a thick chest with a long robe covering it, a large book or shield on one arm.
“Very amazing discovery and absolute proof that ancient intelligent aliens not only lived on Mars, but prayed on Mars.”
