People around the world are fascinated by a picture that shows a bright spot lighting up the surface of Mars.
The Curiosity rover captured the bright spot from pictures taken on April 2 and April 3. As soon as the picture made its way to the internet, people started wondering if it was something extraterrestrial like a UFO or an alien.
However, the Curiosity rover’s official Twitter feed has dispelled any rumors by tweeting that the”bright spot in this pic is likely a glinting rock or cosmic-ray hit.” A spokesman for NASA said that it is unlikely that the bright spot was caused by any being.
The Curiosity rover has been on Mars since July 2011.
