NASA scientists were stunned to see the image of a “weird UFO’ taken by the right-side navigation camera on NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity on April 3, 2014 while exploring an area of Mars known as ‘the Kimberley.’
The images appear to show a small flash of light gleaming in the distance, in front of a crater rim in the horizon, reported Space.

UFO enthusiasts jumped on the images, regarding them as possible evidence of advanced life on Mars.
“This could indicate there is intelligent life below the ground and uses light as we do,” one commenter wrote.
However, scientists are throwing cold water at the sighting, saying that it could be smooth rock surface reflecting sunlight.
“One possibility is that the light is the glint from a rock surface reflecting the sun,” a member of the mission team member told Space.com
“It’s also possible that the flashes resulted from the impact of fast-moving cosmic rays,” they explained in a statement released by NASA.
