So sayeth the BBC. Well, not exactly. The BBC is just reporting on speculation that's been growing on the Net since NASA released this photo, taken in 2004 by the Spirit spacecraft/rover when it landed on Mars. If you look really closely at the left-hand side of the photo, well:
A magnified version of the picture, posted on the internet, appears to some to show what resembles a human form among a crop of rocks.Take a look - it really does resemble those blurry photos you see of alleged bigfoots (bigfeet?). Other theories are even more bizarre:
While some bloggers have dismissed the image as a trick of light, others say it is evidence of an alien presence.
One said it was a garden gnome, another that it was the Virgin Mary.So the Danes are aliens? That would explain Peter Schmeichel.* * *
But the consensus seemed to be that it bore a striking resemblance to the Little Mermaid statue in the Danish capital, Copenhagen.
Poster 'Madurobob' said it was a statue 'obviously built by an ancient civilisation that later departed Mars and settled Denmark'.
