NASA Photo Captures Skull Of 'Dinosaur-Like' Alien On Mars

Saturday, September 7, 2019

A UFO expert claimed to have spotted what appeared to be a skull of a dinosaur-like creature on Mars. The UFO expert saw the image through one of the photos taken by NASA’s Spirit rover.

The claim regarding the strange skull-like object on Mars was made by Scott Waring of the UFO-centered blog ET Data Base. According to Waring, he came across the image of the object as he was going through the previous photos taken by NASA on Mars.

As he was browsing through the various galleries, he came across a photo that was taken by the Spirit rover on SOL 109. In the image, an object that looks like a skull of a dinosaur can be seen near the center of the photo, just above the body of the rover.

As seen in the image, the object looks like it had been pressed into the Martian soil. Since the tracks made by Spirit surround the object, Waring accused NASA of intentionally running over the alleged skull using the rover.

The alleged 'dinosaur skull' on Mars

Based on the photo, several prominent features of the skull can be spotted such as the eyes, a horn and an elongated mouth. Waring noted that it looked like a skull of a creature that was part-reptile and part-bird.

“I was looking through the old Spirit rover photos when I found a screaming face in the dirt,” he wrote in a blog post. “It was a skull that resembled part reptilian and part bird.”

The appearance of the object led Waring to speculate that it could be a fossil of a dinosaur-like creature that once lived on Mars.

“If you found this in your backyard, would you even hesitate at thinking it was a dinosaur fossil?” Waring wrote. “You would probably assume it’s as such instantly. The fact that it’s on Mars alone should rock the world of paleontology.”

This isn’t the first time that Waring claimed to have spotted something resembling a reptile on Mars. Earlier in June, he said he saw a carving of a reptilian face on the Red Planet. Interestingly, he said the carving was made on a wall of an alien structure.

The centerpiece of recent interest is the dinosaur skull protruding from the Martian regolith, teeth still embedded, sparkling efferdent white. There are no sockets for these teeth. Dinosaur dentures gave this senior citizen a few extra good years. The jaw line of the skull has no joint or connection point with the skull. So our minds make up the deficits, fill in the blanks and we agree with others and convince ourselves that this is a fossilized skull. Who knows how this animal could have evolved differently.

But evolve it did – within our minds. Referencing online dictionaries [ref], “Pareidolia is the imagined perception of a pattern (or meaning) where it does not actually exist, as in considering the moon to have human features.” I must admit that I do not seek out these “discoveries” on Mars but I enjoy looking at them and there are many scientists at JPL that have the same bent. Mars never fails to deliver and caters to everyone, but when skulls and fossils are seen, it is actually us catering to the everyday images and wishes we hold in our minds.
