Star Destroyer found on Mars? 'Crashed UFO' resembles famous Star Wars ship

Star Destroyer found on Mars? 'Crashed UFO' resembles famous Star Wars ship
If you thought Star Destroyers were only found in Star Wars flicks, you may be wrong. A photo taken by NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover shows an object that, to some UFO lovers, looks like the same warships seen on the big screen.

"I found this anomaly in the latest Curiosity Rover photo. The black object looks like a crashed UFO," wrote UFO Sightings contributor Scott C. Waring.

He added that the "craft" is only about 2.5 to 3 meters across, "so it probably only held a few passengers."

Anyone familiar with Star Wars will recognize the similarities the object's shape seems to have with the film franchise's famous Star Destroyers – warships known for their firepower, which causes enemy ships to surrender or be destroyed. Though the fictional vessels were some 500 times larger than the object found on Mars.

Admittedly, it may seem a bit far-fetched – so perhaps its best you come to your own conclusion about the newest mystery object found on Mars.

And while you decide whether the image resembles a real-life Star Wars spacecraft, Waring and other space enthusiasts will be anxiously awaiting any future photos.

"There is only one photo of the ship. The rover usually takes many of each area, but not this one. Perhaps tomorrow it will take more," Waring wrote.

It's not the first intriguing object to be photographed by Curiosity. Just two days ago, UFO lovers claimed to have spotted a “lizard” on “high alert” over the presence of the rover.

Earlier this month, 'space boobs' also were reportedly spotted on Mars, with UFO believers saying they spotted an alien “woman with breasts and long hair.” But it's not just women and lizards apparently wandering around the Red Planet. An “awesome Martian space crab” also caught the eye of ufologists this month.
