NASA’s Curiosity Rover seems to have captured something very bizarre on camera, including a strange white light dancing across the horizon of the red planet, and four blobs hovering in the sky.

While the images are certainly a curiosity, NASA and photography experts insist they are nothing more than blemishes on the images, picked up by the camera lens sitting on the rover at a distance of 350 million miles away.

So far, NASA has not commented on any of the strange sightings, but alien hunters have suggested that these are alien ships monitoring humans’ baby steps into the universe.

YouTube user StephenHannardADGUK, part of a group called Alien Disclosure UK, spotted the anomalies on the NASA images, publicly available on the space agency’s website, and applied a series of filters to try to shed light on the mystery.

“Four objects caught by Mars Curiosity, very difficult to make out on original image so I have used a few filters to highlight,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying, referring to the four pin-points of light pictured in the skies of Mars.

“What are these four objects? UFOs, Dust particles, or something else? As always you decide,” he said.

According to the Huffington Post, video analyst Marc Dantonio - who has worked on projects for the U.S. government, said that these are simply ‘dead pixels’ in the image - a regular problem in the world of graphics.

Another video appears to show an object rising from the horizon, followed shortly afterwards by another small object.
