Guys, let’s talk about space. And aliens. And UFOs. Now, I watched Roswell and The X-Files and all, but I’m just not sure if I believe in the supernatural. But! I’m not sure I don’t believe in it, either. Here’s what I do know: Stories like this one make me question everything!

Here’s what’s happening: Curiosity, the Mars rover, has been photographing the planet for some time now. NASA recently released some of these photos, in an attempt to share their recent discoveries with us (thanks, NASA!). One of these snaps has caused quite a stir, as it appears there is a small, mysterious woman emerging from the planet’s surface. Say what?!

The news comes to us from UFO Sightings Daily, a website dedicated to reporting conspiracy theories. “It looks like a woman partly cloaked,” they write, “We also see two arms that are lighter in color and what looks like a head with long hair.” Hmmm.

Others are weighing in around the Internet, calling the shape everything from a living martian to a statue of a once powerful ruler. As Mashable commenter Brian Bozanich put it, “I know for a fact that this is Spock’s mother.” We hear that, Brian.

So, what do you think it is? Dust and shadows? Proof that there’s life on Mars? (Yep, went there. #noregrets.) Clever CGI work? While we don’t have the answers, we DO have some pretty impressive photos Curiosity the rover has taken while chillin’ on Mars. Check ’em out here.
