Hard evidence of life on Mars that NASA doesn’t want to discuss

UFO Sightings Daily revealed yesterday that the NASA Spirit Rover took a sequence of five images over an approximate seven day period that showed what appears to be an animal near a distinctive set of rocks. Two of the five images show an object that appears where other images in the sequence show nothing else was previously there. The object, about the same size as a basketball, had clearly moved, not once but several times in the sequence. The object appears to have a relatively long neck and blends in well with the surrounding rocks. The conclusion drawn by Scott Waring, owner of UFO Sightings Daily is startling. Spirit Rover had captured images of an indigenous form of Martian life that blends in well with the surrounding rocks.

The sequence of Spirit Rover images was first found three years ago by Waring. On May 14, 2014, he decided to post an update on his blog providing more detailed analysis of the moving object in the Spirit Rover images. Waring provided the chronological sequence of images that clearly show an object twice appearing where previously there was nothing there. No alteration of the images occurred which were all taken directly from the NASA JPL website created for storing Mars Rover imagery. Waring’s conclusion, is that the images reveal some kind of animal moving on the Mars surface.


It’s pretty hard to ignore NASA’s own imagery that clearly shows a basketball sized object appearing to move on the Martian surface. So why hasn’t NASA said anything about it? I thought I would give someone from NASA a chance to respond.

On May 15, 2014, I wrote a post on the NASA affiliated science forum, NASASpaceFlight.com, to get expert feedback about the sequence of Spirit Rover images. NASASpaceFlight.com was conceived by its owner, Chris Bergin, with the support of NASA spaceflight managers to give engineers from different national space programs a forum to share information about space missions. Here is what I wrote:

There is a sequence of images by the Spirit Rover over an approximate week (Sol 1830-1836) that show a distinctive set of rocks. An object appears in the sequence. Some claim it is an indigenous form of life. I’d like some expert opinion on what it is. I’ve attached a composite of three images in the sequence which show the object (notation is by the life proponent).

My post was quickly removed by Bergin, and I was banned indefinitely from the forum. The reason given was that the forum does not discuss UFOs, yet in my request for feedback about the Spirit Rover images, I did not mention UFOs or anything flying for that matter. Clearly, space experts do not want to discuss questions arising from NASA’s own scientific instruments that suggest possible life on Mars, let alone the existence of UFOs.

The five images from the Spirit Rover mission show an object that has clearly moved in the sequence. The object appears to be some kind of animal that blends in well with the surrounding rock. Given that NASA experts refuse to discuss such a possibility, it is reasonable to agree with Waring. Hard evidence has been found that there is some kind of indigenous life roaming the surface of Mars.

    In the NASA JPL site, a manual about the naming convention of the images can be found. In it, you can get the image filename coding and it’s meaning. The 24th character represents the Camera Eye (R=Right or L=Left). The pictures used are from the left camera (filename…L0M…), so I researched for the right pictures of the same moment (just changing the 24th filename to …R0M…) and I can see a parallax error about the “neck” of the rock-creature. See for yourself:
    Left Image: 2N289093752EFFB074P1985L0M1
    Right Image: 2N289093752EFFB074P1985R0M1
    The same happens in the other pictures.

    1. Whatever that rock-thing is, it doesn’t have a neck/head, as we would guess.
    2. It still doesn’t change the fact that a rock-thing has moved between some photos.

    absorb heat from the sun, wedge shaped body to stay under the sand
    during sand storms, and periscope vision to see when the storm has
