[adsense] Footage showing a mysterious light on Mars was captured by NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover. The footage clearly shows a bright light of unknown origin. UFO and alien life enthusiasts maintain this may be the first evidence of intelligent life outside Earth.
Scientists from NASA, however, have played spoil-sport and forwarded the likelihood of the light being alien as small. Several sources from NASA speculate that the light is most likely a ‘cosmic ray reflecting off a glinty rock’ and hitting rover’s camera, causing the phenomena.
“At the same time NAVCAM RIGHT took the picture with the light in it, NAVCAM LEFT also took a picture…and there’s no light,” Plait explains. The supposed glint of light on the horizon may have been just a glitch in one of the camera shots.
