Sharp-eyed UFO fan...claims to spot a lizard on Mars in footage from Curiosity Rover

A science blogger with a keen sense of vision claims to have spotted a lizard meandering around Mars.

The unknown spotter is from Japan and alerted the website, UFO Sightings Daily, of the unusual sight.

The rather unbelievable and completely unsubstantiated claim has caused some excitable conspiracy theorists to fear that the NASA could be planting life on the planet for scientific testing.

Or the rover is actually in the desert in Arizona?

Or more probably the Japanese UFO watcher was just making it up

It's a rock.

'With water existing on Mars in small amounts, its possible to find such desert animals wandering around...although very rare mind you.'

No, it's impossible. There is no food or oxygen or liquid water on Mars. The air pressure is only 1% Earth atmospheric.

Yeah, a lizard that lives in a 200 degree temperature swing, on a daily basis.

Sure.

Well OK, good thing you added the "that breathes fire" part, otherwise I would have thought you were being silly :)

Pareidolia (/pærɨˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-doh-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant, a form of apophenia. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon or the Moon rabbit, and hearing hidden messages on records when played in reverse.

Well - All that jet propulsion stuff has to go somewhere when he’s not flying.

Well, to be fair, it does look somewhat like a reptillian quadruped lying there dead. I guess the GEICO gecko is fleeing the scene of the crime, or is he merely high-stepping because those rocks are hot, lol?

Oh yeah, now I see the little guy, sort of a crunchy looking miniature Jabba The Hutt, looking off to the right?

Cool.

Michelle needs to re-educate him about his diet, obviously it’s for his own good. Is gender even an appropriate construct for Martians? Maybe it’s just a Hutt and they calf by fracturing.

And then there’s that daily food and water thing.

Or at least every few days.

But, I digress ....

Stare at anything long enough, and you’ll start to see familiar shapes. Some people look at clouds, this guy chooses to gaze at pictures from Mars. Just because you can make out a thing doesn’t meant it’s actually there.
If the Curiosity Rover sighted something as complex as a rat, a lizard or Dejah Thoris, I’m sure they would be trumpeting it loud and long.
