Giant Skull-Like Object on Mars Could be From 10-Foot Alien

The surface of Mars looks a lot like the desert areas in the western United States where the deer and the antelope play and then die and leave their skulls to be bleached in the sun until they look like rocks. That’s why anything spotted on the Martian surface by keen observers of photographs from the Mars rovers that looks kind-a sort-a like a skull bears closer observation. Especially when it resembles the skull of a human-like creature that could have been 10 feet tall.

The image was taken by the Mars rover Spirit and appears to show an object partially buried in the Martian soil. Its discovery in the photo is attributed to an unnamed British man but the photograph was enhanced and distributed in a YouTube video by Paranormal Crucible, which has found and disseminated many of the odd and unusual images found on Mars.

Without any tweaking, the object does resemble a skull buried to jawbone level or possibly missing that part of its face. There appears to be two eye sockets and a nasal cavity between them, along with a horizontal protrusion that could be once been covered with a unibrow.

Based on estimates of its size, if the object is the skull of a humanoid being with similar body structure and proportions to humans, the Martian or alien visitor would have been around 9 or 10 feet tall.

What do you think? I know, it takes a little imagination to go from the image below to the enhanced one at the top of this page.

And yes, the people who did the enhancement are the same ones who claim to have found a humanoid creature driving a vehicle on Mars.

On the other hand, an ancient civilization of giants on Mars combined with the theory that life here came from the Red Planet could possibly explain a less ancient civilization of giants on Earth, couldn’t it?
