A self-proclaimed alien and UFO hunter on YouTube has released video made using photographs from Mars rover curiosity wherein they claim to have found an alleged tree stump on Mars.
For conspiracy theorists Mars is a constant course of alien and UFO goodies ever since NASA’s rovers have made it to the Red Planet. Not a single day goes by when some or the other strange thing has been sighted by self-proclaimed alien and UFO hunters. And while almost all of these sightings are not even worth looking at, there are those that leave many baffled, including this one.
The alleged tree stump looks real and according to the video creator – YouTuber Paranormal Crucible – this particular anomaly is proof of existing life or ancient life on the Red Planet. According to the alien hunter, the evidence is definitive proof that life existed on Mars.
The video has been created using an image taken by Mars rover Curiosity on Sol 1647. From the image, it seems that the alleged tree stump is about 3-feet high. The image was taken by Curiosity’s Mastcam on Sol 1647 in March this year.
The description of the video claims that the tree stump is petrified remnants of a Martian tree. This tree stump, claims the creator of the video, is around 3 feet in height. The video creator goes on to cite previous sightings of alleged plants and animals on mars and says that it is logical to assume that a variety of tree either existed, or still exists on Mars.
According to NASA, on Sol 1647, the Left Mastcam on board Curiosity rover took a 360-degree panorama and Right Mastcam acquired a 17×3 mosaic of the edge of the sand dune, which was named “Ogunquit Beach.”
Subsequently the ChemCam and Right Mastcam observed bedrock targets “Damariscotta Lake,” “Mount Katahdin,” and “Boothbay Harbor.” Late that afternoon, the arm was unstowed for drill diagnostic tests and a full suite of MAHLI images on another bedrock target dubbed “Halftide Ledge.”
The object does look at like a tree stump, but it most probably is some form of rock. Check out the video below:
