Another Flying Saucer Spotted on the Surface of Mars

The surface of Mars is starting to look like a flying saucer junkyard as yet another dish-shaped craft has been spotted in an image taken by the Mars Orbiter Camera. Are aliens crashing their spacecrafts into the Red Planet, using it as a rest stop or abandoning saucers there to be used later for parts?

This particular picture (above) comes from the Aram Chaos region of Mars and shows what looks like a flying saucer resting on or embedded in a ridged ground or rocks. The craft’s distinctive shape and what appear to be windows make it stand out from its landing or crash site. MMSPZC, one of the groups that spotted it, estimates the size of the flying saucer to be 200-300 meters in diameter.

The Mars Observer isn’t the only one photographing flying saucers on Mars. This object appeared in a picture taken by the Mars Curiosity Rover. It looks like a flying saucer with a dome-shaped deck on top and seems to be embedded in the ground or a wall.

Not all of the saucers are landing so gracefully or fully intact. This photo taken by Curiosity shows what appears to be a saucer that is flipped over. Either that or it’s a craft that's buried so deep into the surface that all that is above the surface is the tail.

Then there’s the one with the skid marks. This image taken by the Mars Orbiter Camera shows what appears to be a flying saucer that plowed into the surface from a low angle and left a trench-like skid mark before ending up half-embedded in the surface.

The number of saucer-shaped objects discovered on the surface of Mars continues to mount. Add to that the many more images of what appear to be spacecrafts that are not saucer-shaped and of unexplained lights both on the Martian surface and above it. They can’t all be rocks, hot pixels or shadows, can they?
