Mosty likely Foo fighters which I believe are humans from our future going back in time to watch historical events. Curiosity would probably be a great event to go watch on a holiday in a few thousand years.

NASA is the red headed stepchild of the government.. I doubt they know anything about existence of alien life out there even if there was.. they barely get funded as it is.

PS.
I have red hair ( when I let it grow ) so nobody take offense

Link fixed. Thanks !
Im just surprised that they didnt edit that out before releasing it. Thats the part that surprises me the most. Its a good thing that there are people out there who are able to piece all these pieces together and see whats going on. Like our fellow ATS'er who did that panoramic view. That was pretty cool.


No problem - I'm not surprised they didn't edit it out because I'm pretty confident that whatever it is has a perfectly mundane explanation ... satellite, meteor, asteroid, martian moon.. etc ..

Wasn't this picture discussed a week or so ago, when it was released by the Rover..

i believe most people said it was sand particles, because it was on the other pictures as well.

Also, zooming would change the location of the dust on the picture as well.

Not sure what it is, it's probably aliens though. Definitely probably aliens.

Here's the YouTube vid:




I don't think alien spaceships would be strangely shaped and of varying shapes/sizes.. When you apply inverse colors to an image it adds dimension to differences in lighting, I hate how they apply these filters to trick the average viewer into thinking the "UFO" has mass.

Maybe it's some sort of artifact, or perhaps as the article referenced claims, dead pixels? I'm not an imaging expert by any means, but like to try and start with the simplest explanation...

Any experts care to comment?

No idea about the time lapse timing between each image, but I think Phobos has a pretty fast orbital speed.

I'd rather see it as a "bug" or anything else, but the best way to check for those, is to eliminate all possible logical explanations, right?


That very well could be but if it was Phobos, then Curiosity should be able to pick up that image more than once. Every day. Othewise, it may not be a moon.

CASE CLOSED!

Just wait until chunks of the parachute start get blowing around by the Martian wind. I wonder how long it will be before the wind blown sand cuts it into pieces large enough to set sail.

YouTube user StephenHannardADGUK, part of a group called Alien Disclosure UK, spotted the anomalies on the NASA images, publicly available on the space agency's website, and applied a series of filters to try to shed light on the mystery.


As has been pointed out several times, the "anomalies" appear in the same location of the frame in all of the images. What does that tell you about them?
For example:
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

Now it very well could be UFO's hovering around Curiosity and checking out what he's doing, but most likely its probably just a glitch. What do you guys think ?


Just to throw this out there...

If im not mistaken Curiosity does not use solar energy as its primary power source. Instead it uses a Radioisotope thermoelectric generator. The power source falls into the nuclear category.

People have claimed UFO's have deactivated nuclear weapons / observed etc.

If those conclusion are accurate then maybe its possible they are doing it on Mars. Not so much to monitor the mission but to keep track of the first nuclear power source on a planet other than Earth.

Obviously that its aliens. Im so tired of you and your facts and logic! Beginning to suspect that youre a reptillian shill.

Thats an excellent theory. I forge the name of the case but I believe it happened in New Jersey, where a worker claimed he and his crew saw a UFO come close to the nuclear power plants and just hover around. This happened a few nights. Lets just hope Curiosity doesnt have a short liven life.

Well, without knowledge of Phobos orbit I can't really point that out as possible or not.

Our moon will slightly change place along it's orbit, from our point of view. Phobos is small and have a fast orbit. Maybe it was caught at the right moment, where it was in the right place with the right sun light reflecting on it.

The video is a hoax. It is made from a single image. The first image from the rear hazcam.

The landscape looks different in every image that the light appears.

How can it? The rover wasn't moving. The camera cannot be aimed. The hazams do not do video. It was a single image. This one:
mars.jpl.nasa.gov...

Chinese lanterns!

Looks interesting to say the least. Nice find.

Those images are taken from the video in this thread, most likely CGI imo:

Isn't it funny, how CGI always involves like a light speck darting across the horizon or something, always the same and a very good give away. The Curiosity landings will provide many CGI'ers with stuff to spew their crap onto.

I say these are just blemishes on the image.

Another clear example here:

The older I get the more I wonder if NASA has to work withing certain perameters dictated by higher ups that keeps them away from finding and exposing extra terrestrial intelligent life. Why aren't they using ground penetrating radar to look for caverns and underground lava tunnels, underground water etc? Why aren't they landing around the poles where the ice and possibly water. Maybe these UFO spots are really a side project. Balloon craft that can float around and take low or high altitude recon. Maybe deflate and land and inflate and lift off again. Now that would be a smart, cheap way to gather info on Mars!

I figured it looked like the sun being reflected, does the lens have a flat, or concave surface? Is the sun out, and in a geometric angle to the lens?

I don't know what I'm talking about, just a hunch, ya' know?
