Did Aliens Build a Pyramid on Mars? NASA photos show what some believe is a pyramid on Mars.
AN UNUSUAL STRUCTURE
YouTube channel Paranormal Crucible uploaded a video on Saturday, June 20 analyzing a photo that seemingly shows an unusual structure on the Martian surface.
The photo in question was taken by the Mastcam aboard NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity on Thursday, May 7, 2015. The photo depicts a hill and its rocky terrain. One of the rocks in the distance looks somewhat different than the others in the photo, and it bears a striking resemblance to a constructed pyramid.
The description accompanying the video states, “Due to the size of the object about the scale of a small car I would theorize that the artifact is either the capstone of a much larger pyramid possibly buried deep beneath the surface or perhaps a marker stone.”
PROOF OF ALIENS?
This object highlighted by the video is interesting. But is this pyramid on Mars proof of a current or former alien civilization on Mars?
The video’s uploader seems to think so.
In the video, using a text-to-speech program, the uploader comments, “Whatever this mysterious object may actually be is open to debate.” But then the uploader opines, “But I would suggest, due to its near-perfect design and shape, that this anomaly is the result of intelligent design, and certainly not a trick of light and shadow.”
People have been spotting unusual looking features on Mars for a long time. One great example is astronomer Percival Lowell who, in the late 1800s, observed channels on the planet’s surface, and interpreted these channels to be artificial canals manufactured by intelligent Martians.
People have spotted anomalies in Mars photographs since NASA began photographing the planet’s surface. A well-known example is an odd surface feature photographed by NASA’s Viking 1 on July 25, 1976 in the Cydonia region of the planet, which later became known as the “Face on Mars.” As its name implies, this large object (approximately one mile across) resembles a human face.
Many scientists dismiss claims of faces, artificial structures, animals, etc. on Mars, simply attributing these oddities to pareidolia —a psychological phenomenon where the brain conjures up recognizable objects, like when people see clouds shaped like animals, or Jesus on a tortilla.
But others believe that, based on the mounting number of odd objects photographed in high resolution by Curiosity, like the recent pyramid on Mars, that the possibility of a Martian civilization, past or present, can’t be ignored.
