The idea of Mars once harbouring life has long intrigued us on Earth. Although many have claimed they have discovered evidence of life on Mars, conclusive proof continues to elude us. Training telescopes on the Red Planet is not enough, which is why US space agency NASA sent its Curiosity Rover to explore the apparently barren surface of Mars. And prominent UFO hunter Scott C Waring believes he has now found evidence of a crashed alien UFO on Mars, among the many photographs beamed back by Curiosity.
The eagle-eyed UFO expert revealed his latest “discovery”, an unusually-shaped mound in the background of a NASA photo.
Mr Waring believes this is the latest conclusive evidence of extra-terrestrial visits to Mars.
Mr Waring wrote on his UFO Sightings Daily blog: “I found a crashed disk on a hilltop of Mars in this week’s most recent Curiosity Rover photos.
“The disk was half visible and about 30 percent of it was buried below the surface of the hill.
“The estimated size of the UFO was about 40 metres across.”

The UFO enthusiast believes the tapered shape resembles the ancient Aztec and Mayan ruins in South America.
And Mr Waring thinks the lower half of the “spacecraft” offers the most crucial evidence.
He said: “When have you ever seen the base of any pyramid stick out like this? Never.
“But you can see that the object landed in this location, and was not built that way.

“It looks like the rover was not heading in this object’s direction, but rather the camera accidentally swept past it when looking around.
“I would really like to drive that rover over to this hilltop and get a closer look at this ancient craft.”
NASA appears increasingly confident of discovering life on Mars.
However, the US space agency will certainly never expect to discover evidence of intelligent life, past or present.

Instead, at best NASA can hope to find signs of extremely basic or single-celled life.
The space agency said: “Among our discoveries about Mars, one stands out above all others: the possible presence of liquid water on Mars, either in its ancient past or preserved in the subsurface today.
“Water is key because almost everywhere we find water on Earth, we find life.
“If Mars once had liquid water, or still does today, it is compelling to ask whether any microscopic life forms could have developed on its surface.”
