YouTube UFOlogists and space anomaly hunters UFOvni2012 report a Mars anomaly that ranks among the most bizarre ever. The anomaly hunters recently reported sighting in a NASA Curiosity rover photo what appears to be a “strange [alien] woman walking on Mars.”
The original NASA photo (see below) in which the anomaly hunters spotted the lone figure may be viewed here on the NASA JPL website. The viewer can zoom in on the image on the NASA website for a closer view of the “strange woman walking on Mars.”
The photo appears to a show a ghostly woman standing on a rock formation observing Curiosity rover. She appears to be wearing a flowing dress. Her head and two arms are distinctly visible.
UFO Sightings Daily editor Scott Waring, notes that the woman appears to be bare-chested.
“It looks like a woman partly cloaked. The woman seems to have breasts… indicated by the shadow on its chest. We also see two arms that are lighter in color and what looks like a head with long hair.”
Some viewers noted that the style of her dress is reminiscent of the fashion style of ancient Minoan women. Ancient Minoan art often shows women spotting a bare-breasted style of dress.
Waring also suggests that the image could be a highly eroded ancient statue, but thinks it unlikely.
“It’s hard to tell if this is a living being, or a statue of a being from long ago. However, a statue that small would be eroded and destroyed easily, so it has a higher chance of being a living being. Also it is facing the Mars rover… watching it from a distance.”
UFovni2012 uploaded to YouTube on June 23, 2015 a second video which purports to conduct further “analysis” of the NASA photo. Anomaly hunters debate whether the NASA image actually reveals a “strange woman walking on Mars.”
The reaction to the “analysis” by YouTube viewers was mixed. Some viewers appeared convinced while some expressed disbelief.
“If people actually believe that there is a woman walking on Mars then there is more wrong with this world than I ever could have imagined.”
“There are some very, strange people walking around on earth as well, with some very strange ideas.”
Some accused UFOvni2012 of editing the original NASA image. But the YouTube anomaly hunters posted a link to the original NASA JPL image (see original NASA image here) which shows the “strange woman walking on Mars.”
“I think it is only animation work.”
“Yeah dude, this doesn’t even reach animation level, this is straight from ‘ghost in your phone’ app from android market xC.”
“Strange that does strangely look like a woman in an open-chested dress, like it was edited in.”
Someone suggested that the woman is an alien version of the Statue of Liberty.
“You are saying that she’s only 20 cm tall. If she would be standing on that cliff you maybe a lot taller than anybody from earth (sic). She’s maybe related to the Statue of Liberty.”
However, NASA scientists continue to tell anyone who cares to listen that strange anomaly sightings in Mars rover photos are due to the psychological phenomenon called “pareidolia,” a tendency of the human mind to perceive familiar shapes and figures when presented with otherwise meaningless jumble of data.
But anomaly hunters dismiss this scientific explanation.
Responding to questions from this reporter about the claim that Mars anomalies are due to a pyschological bug of the human mind called pareidolia, an anomaly hunter retorted, “There is no such thing as pareidolia.”
