Online alien and UFO hunters claim they have sighted a UFO drone in a photo of the Gale Crater region of Mars captured by a NASA Mars rover. According to the YouTube UFO hunter Paranormal Crucible, a photo of the Martian terrain snapped by a Mars rover -- presumably Curiosity -- on Sol 64 shows an object that looks like a metallic chunk of machinery dumped on the Martian surface.
Paranormal Crucible notes that the discovery was first made a few years back. But in a new set of photos uploaded to YouTube on November 1, 2015, the UFO hunter revisits the remarkable discovery that set the entire online UFO community buzzing with excitement when it was first discovered.
This time around, Paranormal Crucible attempts to "clean up the photo" by enhancing features of the alleged metallic object that could help UFO researchers gain fresh insights and "shed new light" into its nature and construction.
UFO Sightings Daily editor Scott Waring points out that the "cleaned up photo" gives a "new perspective" by enhancing features that give clues about what the object looked like when it was made, and what it was probably used for.
"I really like his cleaned up photo of the object and his new perspective. It gives us a chance to look at it as it was when it was made, and how it might have been used."
According to Paranormal Crucible, "In my opinion this object is an extraterrestrial drone possibly built by the indigenous Martian populace or perhaps it was deployed by an off world alien species who were exploring the Martian surface."
However, other UFO enthusiasts who have studied the image claim that the object could be part of a bigger spacecraft, such as a component of a spacecraft's engine or propulsion system.
Regardless, UFO and Mars anomaly hunters are unanimous that millions of years ago, Mars was home to indigenous alien races with advanced culture and civilization. While some Mars anomaly hunters believe that the ancient civilizations reached sufficient levels of scientific and technological development to build flying machines and possibly space ships, others insist that ancient Mars civilizations attained only modest standards of scientific and technological development.
But all anomaly hunters agree that ancient Martians created a young bustling civilization that generated sufficient "noise" to attract the attention of hostile aliens possessing advanced nuclear technological culture. The hostile aliens wiped out the bustling Mars civilizations by detonating a series of powerful thermonuclear devices.
These startling claims about Mars civilization were first made by a U.S. physicist, Dr. John Brandenburg, who obtained his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis.
In a paper, titled "Evidence of Massive Thermonuclear Explosions in Mars Past, The Cydonian Hypothesis and Fermi's Paradox," presented at the 2014 Annual Fall meeting of the American Physical Society Prairie Section in Monmouth, Illinois, Brandenburg argued that data from gamma ray spectrometry conducted by NASA orbiters show evidence of radiation fallout consistent with two massive nuclear explosions on Mars. The explosions occurred on two sites on Mars where two civilizations -- the Cydonian and Utopian --- flourished millions of years ago, according to Brandenburg.
"Taken together, the data requires that the hypothesis of Mars as the site of an ancient planetary nuclear massacre must now be considered. Fermi's Paradox, the unexpected silence of the stars, may be solved at Mars. Providentially, we are forewarned of this possible aspect of the cosmos."
UFO hunters have reported discovering remains of crashed UFOs on different sites on Mars.
In August, 2015, Waring reported that he sighted in a photo of the Martian terrain, snapped by NASA's Mars Curiosity rover, a black object that looked like a space shuttle.
Some UFO enthusiasts compared the alleged spacecraft to a Star Destroyer from the Star Wars movie franchise.
