• UFO expert Scott Waring claimed to have spotted alien relics on Mars
  • Photo of the alleged relics was taken by NASA's Curiosity rover
  • Waring saw a pyramid and facial sculptures in the photo

A UFO expert believes that NASA captured a photo of an alleged alien pyramid on Mars. Aside from the pyramid, the expert claimed he also saw carvings of alien faces in the photo.

The strange sighting was reported by Scott Waring of ET Data Base. In a recent blog post, Waring said he spotted the strange object while browsing Gigapan, a website that features high-resolution photos taken by NASA on Mars.

The photo that caught Waring’s attention was taken by NASA’s Curiosity rover on SOL 346, which is equivalent to July 27, 2013 on Earth. According to the details of the photo, the image was taken while the rover was exploring a region on Mars known as Elsie Mountain.

As Waring was going through the photo, he came across a cluster of large rocks sticking out from the surface. According to the UFO expert, the rocks could be relics that came from an ancient alien civilization that one lived on Mars. According to Waring, one of the alleged relics was a pyramid that has four sides.

“The pyramid has four sides and perfectly balanced on each side,” he stated in a blog post. “It has sunk into the sands over time and one side of the pyramid is deep under the dirt, but we can still see its magnificent detail.”

Behind the alleged pyramid are massive objects that Waring referred to as sculptures of heads. Waring came to this conclusion after identifying several features of the sculptures, such as the nose, ear, eyes and cheeks.

Waring believes that similar to the Egyptian pyramids and statues of pharaohs on Earth, the alleged sculptures he spotted on the photo depicted the ancient Martian culture of the Red Planet.

“The faces are very primitive in design,” he stated. “One face has a helmet and two long ears sticking out, and a face with two eyes and a nose. The detail is poor, but who am I to judge what’s beautiful or not on their Martian culture. There is also another face to the far left. It has a helmet and ear, nose eye cheeks and mouth visible.”

Although Waring referenced NASA's photo in his latest blog post, the agency did not release a statement confirming or acknowledging his claims.
