Curiosity, following the discovery of a bright object in October 2012, and then a metallic-looking “door knob” in February 2013, now appears to have discovered… a Martian campfire. NASA, of course, says it’s nothing of the sort — rather than an indication of extraterrestrial life, it’s probably just a bright spot caused by the sun reflecting off a rock, or errant cosmic radiation striking the camera’s sensor. A prominent ufologist, however, claims that it’s an artificial life source, and that “NASA could go and investigate it, but hey, they are not on Mars to discovery life, but there to stall its discovery.”
The photo in question was captured by Curiosity’s right-hand navigation camera on April 3 (sol 589). The image appears to show an artificial light source that is shining upwards from below. Given the distances involved, the flare is probably a few meters tall. According to Scott Waring, a ufologist who runs the fantastic UFO Sightings Daily website, this flash of light “could indicate there there is intelligent life below the ground and uses light as we do.” Or alternatively, it might be a camp fire, or some other artificial source of light.
