A UFO expert claimed that one of NASA’s Mars photos accidentally showed an alien vessel parked on the surface. Aside from the spacecraft, images of other alien artifacts were also included in the photo.

Scott Waring of ET Data Base obtained the photo through Gigapan’s website, a private company that was founded through a collaborative effort between the Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania and NASA’s Ames Research Center.

In the interactive photo, an elongated object can be spotted in the middle of Mars’ desert-like surface. Upon zooming in on the object, it can be seen that it bears a striking resemblance to a small speedboat. Aside from the shape, the strange object also featured a gleaming windshield-shaped feature on its top area.

According to Waring, the object was an ancient vehicle that Mars’ previous inhabitants used. He noted that it was used for transportation because aside from the windshield, the object also had a tail fin, which was most likely used for maneuvering the vessel. In addition, it also had pipe-like features protruding from its back.

In addition to the vessel, Waring also spotted various object that he referred to as ancient alien artifacts. According to the UFO enthusiast, these objects were the remnants of the ancient civilization that once thrived on Mars.

One of the objects that Waring spotted was a symbol or character that was carved on a flat surface. He also saw various fragments of pillars scattered across the surface of the Red Planet.

By comparing the strange objects with other prominent features on Mars, Waring noted the boat-like vessel was about 3 feet long while the pillars stood at almost 5 feet tall. Given the objects’ sizes, he speculated that a race of small beings that were about 3 to 6 inches tall once lived on Mars.

Waring’s latest theory seems to coincide with his previous discovery back in June. Last month, he saw a carving of an alien face in one of NASA’s Mars photos. He said that since the carving was made on a wall that was only about a foot tall, it was most likely made by a small alien being.
