Is that you, Buddha? What’re you doing on Mars? Just chilling?
According to UFO hunters at UFO Sightings Daily, a pile of rocks that resembles a Buddha statue has been spotted on the Red Planet. The image, captured by NASA and unearthed by YouTuber Paranormal Crucible, “should be enough to convince the United Nations that intelligent life once existed on Mars,” writes Scott C. Waring in the post.
"This shows a face and head turned to its right, with breasts and a plump stomach, shoulders,” he continues.
Something curious to note, however: Waring posted an image of the same formation this time last year, but claims that the old one was never "this close up." If you compare the two photos, however, you'll notice they are the exact same one from NASA.
Paranormal Crucible even enhanced the NASA photo to bring out its human-like features, as shown in the video below:
It feels like every day someone is claiming to find strange objects on Mars — a floating spoon, Bigfoot, an iguana, a traffic light — to name a few. So, do we think this formation is solid evidence of anything? Probably not. But hey, it's still fun to use our imaginations as adults.
