The weirdest series of images taken on Mars

In the 19th century, Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli claimed that he observed the canal on Mars. Since then, people have continuously discovered strange images on the red planet.

One of the strangest images appeared in 1976 when NASA's Viking 1 spacecraft captured a human face in the Cydonia region on the red planet. NASA describes it as a large stone dune similar to a human head, the shade creates an image of the eyes, nose, and mouth. Many people interpret the face longer than 3.2 km is the tomb from the civilization of Mars has disappeared long ago. However, later photographs show that this is a mountain table top. The face of Mars is now used as a classic example of pareidolia (psychological obsession with faces). (Photo: NASA).

The image of the spoon on the surface of Mars makes many people wonder whether the Curiosity spacecraft (NASA) discovered traces of lost civilization or this is a rocky mountain range with different shapes. In 2015, NASA also captured a picture of a spoon suspended on a red planet. (Photo: NASA).

In 2016, in a photo recorded by Curiosity, many people noticed the strange light in the distance, thereby forming many theories about aliens. In fact, this may be a cosmic ray. (Photo: NASA).

In November 2018, Curiosity continued to record strange images on Mars. This time the object resembled gold. At that time, the self-propelled ship was exploring geology along Vera Rubin Ridge. This object could be a meteorite of nickel and iron. Previously, Curiosity also discovered similar objects, including a large metal meteorite in 2015 and a smaller sized meteorite in 2016.

In 2014, Curiosity captured images of the Martian surface with objects similar to the thigh bones. Many people believe that this is a fossil from civilization has disappeared. But scientists at NASA claim not. It may be a strange shaped rock due to erosion. (Photo: NASA).

On September 28, 2012, Curiosity captured the Rocknest sand dune area. Famous UFO hunter Scott C. Waring immediately spotted the squirrel in the picture, calling it a ' cute rodent on Mars'. However, it is clear that this is only a small stone lying among other stones. (Photo: NASA).

As soon as it landed on the red planet, Curiosity spotted a piece of plastic on the surface. After review, the project team at NASA concluded this was a piece of plastic from the self-propelled ship. In 2018, another plastic-like object was seen on Mars. It turned out to be a thin, flaky piece of rock. (Photo: NASA).

On September 5, 2007, photos from the Spirit self-propelled train appeared to show a woman in a skirt, holding out her hands. But similar to the squirrel case, this is just a stone. In 2015, Curiosity also sent a photo of a rock with a human-like shape. (Photo: NASA).

A photo taken by Opportunity self-propelled boat in 2010 at the Concepción pit shows an object similar to a sculpture of ancient Mesopotamian civilization. In particular, it is very similar to the statue of Nabu - the intellectual god of Neo-Assyrian civilization. (Photo: NASA).
