Mysterious ‘artificial’ light appears on NASA’s Mars image

The high-resolution camera of one of the NASA rovers exploring the red planet has detected a very mysterious bright ‘light’ in the Martian horizon of unknown origin.


Researchers are unsure as to what this mysterious phenomenon is and are still investigating all possibilities, even though like with many other images that show anomalies on Mars, this one too will most likely be forgotten.

The photograph in question, taken over a year ago has been analyzed by scientists at the US space agency at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, without any luck as they have failed to answer what causes the mysterious bright light that appears to be coming from underground. No official statements have been made regarding the image.

The photograph from the Martian horizon was released by Scott C. Waring, a specialist who deals with similar phenomenon investigating space, Mars, and our Moon on his website, UFO Sightings Daily. Most striking, as noted in the description, is that the light is shining on the bottom upwards and does not seem to be an error in the image itself.

Scott Warring wrote: “This could indicate that three could be intelligent life living underground and this image is the ultimate evidence. The bright light seen cannot be caused by the sunshine nor by a photographic effect“.

Interestingly, the image was taken in Kimberly, a region on Mars which was believed to have important evidence of the past on Mars.

Explaining the mystery

The image has given rise to all sorts of speculation of what might cause the mysterious light. Most skeptical viewer believe that we are actually looking at cosmic rays. Because of the fact that space is filled with radiation and Mars has a very thin atmosphere, high energy particles-a form of radiation known as “cosmic rays” – hit the red planet and may not be blocked by the atmosphere or the geomagnetic field as It occurs on Earth.

The brightness that seems to come out of the Gale crater as seen in the photograph of the Martian horizon isn’t really a light, but a cosmic ray that „struck” Curiosity’s camera when the rover was taking the picture.

However, the downside of this embattled explanation is that the mysterious light does NOT appear only in ONE photograph. In unofficial statements, Justin Maki, a scientist at NASA and expert in images said: “it is possible that the flash was produced by the reflection of the sun on a Martian rock. When these images were taken every day, the sun was in the same direction west-northwest from the rover, and relatively low in the sky.

Maki also noted that the light appears only in the right camera of the probe. When an object appears in both rover cameras, it would be possible to explain the anomalies origin and distance to it, but if it doesn’t appear on both cameras, it is very likely that we are actually looking at cosmic ray bombardment.  However, we cannot verify that since –strangely—it has not been possible to verify what it is because the image of the second cameras was blocked out, he said.

  1. There is no mars, or any planets. What our gov has told us about earth is all a lie and we never went to the moon either because man cannot fly through the firmament, above the earth which is The Van Allen Belt. The earth does not spin, the sun, moon, and earth, are contained in the Firmament and rotate around the FLAT Earth. There is a ring of ice around the edge of our planet, 200 feet high, there is no curvature to the earth. Forget everything you have been told by The Government or Education system about earth, its all a lie to Get rid of God and try and make us think we were made by accident and are not special. We are special, we are the center of God’s Universe and our Govermment is trying to suppress this so people dont know the truth. I suppose if I had been in the Government a long time, and was paid and bought for , I may have done things I was ashamed of too, but I doubt it. Evidently these politicians , past and present are afraid of dying and are betting on eugenics extending their life forever but that wont happen!!! Why would anyone want to live in human form when they can be a spirit????

    1. Lol u mst be really high on something….seriously u are asking to forget abt the education like c=9.8 h=6.626×10^34 ….seriously are u people out of your fuckin mind…..get a hold of yourselves…..and yeah no one will take any govt as a god unless they are north koreans so just chill use your head….not your weed …..jesus was a guy who died long ago….so just stop ur pathetic nonsense and study some science not the stupid bible….

      1. You can have your opinion, but no need to disparage and belittle one’s religion, however high and stupid you think it is. Science and the Bible can coexist.

      2. Prove that we live in a spinning ball at 1,700Km/h! Prove the Earth’s curvature! You can not, can you?
        To this day, we DO NOT HAVE A REAL PHOTO of the Earth. If we look at the images provided by the nasa, we clearly note that they are false. nasa and its supposed “infinite space” are absolutely ridiculous! Transmissions that show WATER BUBBLES coming out of the astronauts’ helmet, Earth’s curvature as sharp as if Earth were the size of the moon, from thousands of satellites we see none in the supposed transmissions, open windows of the ISS in “full space”, reflections of people filming the astronauts without any protection, etc …
        Before you write nonsense, showing an absolutely ridiculous ignorance, prove what you write.
        And as to the existence and divinity of Jesus, besides faith, science itself and ancient writings attest to this, but you, in your blindness and ignorance, prefer to ignore. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus. If you continue in your ignorance and do not repent, you will perish by believing in a spinning wet ball.
