If there’s life in the solar system besides Earth, most scientists agree Mars is the best bet to find it. Despite the fact that the red planet may not harbor intelligent alien life, it could still house bacteria on its surface, or most likely below it. In recent years we’ve changed the way we look at the red planet.
15 years ago, it would have been ludicrous to think Mars was a planet similar to Earth, but thanks to a number of recent studies made possible by data gathered by NASA’s rovers exploring the Martian Surface, we have learned that in the distant past, Mars was a planet covered in water, and had an atmosphere eerily similar to that of Earth.
So, if it was a planet similar to ours, is it that crazy to ponder whether Mars may have housed life during the time it was covered in water?
Recently, Geomicrobiologist Barry DiGregorio from Buckingham University called NASA out for hiding evidence of Alien life on Mars.
The scientist believes how NASA’s Curiosity Rover has snapped what he considered could be trace fossils created by soft-bodied creatures on the red planet, and how NASA is aware of the discovery but has chosen to ignore it because of the planned man mission to Mars in the 2030’s.
However, NASA, on the other hand, claims that the images captured by the Curiosity Rover are nothing but rock crystals that are currently undergoing analysis.
But even before DiGregorio spoke out how NASA may be hiding evidence of alien life on Mars, another scientist, John Brandenburg said there was evidence of ‘intelligent’ life once existing on Mars.
Obviously, these claims kickstarted a heated debate as the scientific community turned against Brandenburg.
So, why is it so hard to believe that Mars may have had life? Is it because of our arrogance? Or are we just afraid to venture out into the possibility we may not be the only living species in the cosmos?
Despite the fact that mainstream scholars firmly disagree with John Brandenburg and Barry DiGregorio, alien hunters around the globe believe the two scientists are onto something.
“There are structures on the surface of Mars. I will tell you for the record that there are structures underneath the surface of Mars that cannot be seen by the Voyager cameras that went by in 1976. I will also tell you that there are machines on the surface of Mars, and there are machines under the surface of Mars that you, can look at, you can find out in detail, you can see what they are, where they are, who they are and a lot of detail about them.” (Dolan, Richard.

Thanks to the countless images beamed back from Mars, UFO hunters have been able to explore the red planet as never before.
And as they explore every corner of Mars, every once in a while, they find something worthy of mention.
Strange shapes that resemble statues, objects, and even buildings or animals, here we have some of our favorite ‘discoveries’ made by UFO hunters on Mars, and we must admit some of them are really weird.
Pyramids on Mars?
Yikes, is that a three-sided Pyramid on the surface of Mars?
The Cydonia Institute for Martian research has released more stunning images of supposed artificial structures on the Martian Surface, which make us question everything we have been taught about Mars in the past.
The head of an ancient… Sumerian statue on Mars?
According to UFO hunters, the surface of Mars is covered by eroded ancient statues now in ruins.
Is this one of them? Or is our good old friend Pareidolia kicking in again?
An Ankh Cross on Mars?
An image taken by NASA rovers on the surface of Mars shows what appears to be an object eerily resembling the ancient Egyptian Ankh Cross.
The Face of Mars
Probably one of the most well-known paranormal discoveries on Mars.
Is that an alien creature on Mars?
One of my favorite weird images of Mars snapped by the Curiosity rover.
Olympus Mons and three other volcanoes on Mars form a perfect triangle on Mars.
That’s just plain weird… right?
Olympus Mons, Pavonis Mons, Arsia Mons, and Ascraeus Mons form a possible ‘artificial’ geological formation on the surface of the red planet.
These volcanoes are located in the Tharsis region on Mars and are collectively known as the Tharsis Montes. They form the so-called Tharsis quadrangle.
And we have another Martian Pyramid.
Coincidence? I think not.
Did you know that we apparently have a Stonehenge on Mars?
Towers on Mars?
There are also some weird geological formations that UFO hunters say could be three, perfectly-aligned towers on the Martian Surface.
What’s a tomb in Japan doing on Mars?
But we also have a massive structure on Mars which eerily resembles an ancient monument in Japan.
