Out There stories relating to "Mars UFO"
Thursday, June 26, 2014
At first glance, this appears to be a Martian moon--until it is photographed in front of a distant mountain range, still glowing strongly. Unless there is a better explanation (and a believable one) coming from NASA, this is a genuine unknown, and on Mars! (The original of this video was hacked and destroyed, but another version is now available on YouTube. Your Out There editor would suggest downloading it promptly if you wish to retain access to it.)

There is clearly a bright UFO in this photo from Curiosity. Does this mean that Curiosity has taken a UFO photo on Mars? The object appears in the photo on the NASA website. Here is a comment from one of our experts:
"If you copy the photo to your computer and then select and view it and zoom in on the bright white spot you can see that someone just pasted the shape over the rocks. It is a practical joke."
Somebody at NASA is having a little fun, it appears, but you never know. We have also asked NASA for a comment on the image and are awaiting an answer. For a larger image, go here.

. The object does not appear to be a video dropout. It is something in the Martian sky. There are probably many ways to dismiss it, but the fact remains that if this was a photo taken of something in Earth's atmosphere, it would be assumed to be a plane with a short contrail. Conceivably, it's a meteor, but it could also be an unknown.

This video has been made from a series of stills taken by Curiosity every few seconds. The stills were taken approximately every second or so, judging from the fact that the shadows and the sun do not move. If you look at this in full screen mode, you will see one object rise from the surface on the horizon, and another one cross the entire horizon from left to right. It isn't clear what these objects are. Contrary to some of the commentary (it is exceptionally stupid, even for YouTube), the objects are not part of the Curiosity mission's hardware. In addition, this low resolution camera would not be able to pick up an orbiting satellite from the ground. The object that crosses the horizon must be in the atmosphere, moving rather slowly in relation to the camera, and either very large or close enough for the camera to record it.
This is an interesting and unusual video. It is not presently explained.
