• A UFO expert spotted an alien structure in a photo taken by NASA's rover on Mars
  • The structure looks like a small nest built by alien organisms
  • The expert believes the nest was made by insect-like aliens on Mars

A UFO expert claims to have spotted a strange-looking structure made by alien life forms in one of NASA’s photos of Mars. According to the expert, the structure could be a nest made by insect-like aliens on the Red Planet.

Claims about the nest-like structure were made by Scott Waring of the UFO-focused blog ETdatabase. According to Waring, he came across the image of the structure while he was going through the raw photos taken by NASA’s Spirit rover on Mars.

The photo that caught Waring’s attention was taken by the rover on Sol 106 of its mission. According to the details of the image, it was captured near the Gusev crater on Mars. Like the other images taken by NASA’s rovers on Mars, the photo features different sized rocks scattered across Mars’ desert-like surface.

Based on the photo, the structure appears to be very small and has an odd shape. It can be seen perched on top of one of the rocks shown in the photo. Due to the object’s strange appearance, Waring claimed that it’s most likely a nest built by small alien organisms on Mars.

“This photo was taken by the Mars Spirit rover on its 106th day on Mars,” Waring stated in a blog post. “The object I found is a structure that has been made recently. The smoothness and lines of it all indicate that something is living in this small structure right now.”

In addition to its size, another strange feature of the structure is its surface. As seen in the photo, the surface of the object has various holes on it. This led Waring to believe that the alleged creatures that built the structure could be similar to insects on Earth. He said that the nest-like structure reminds him of the appearance of mounds built by termites.

“The creatures that reside here are about 1-2cm tall,” Waring stated. “The structure itself is about 24cm tall by 35 cm wide. The life forms might only be insect-like or a small animal, but nevertheless its made by a life form. Much how termites create standing and spiral mounds.”
