Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

A couple of strange lights have been recorded by the Mars Curiosity Rover a few days ago. The first anomalous light can be seen ascending into the sky, from far away. The second light is seen traveling on Mars’ horizon. The rover recorded the light traveling from the left side of the horizon to the far right. Following what seems like a straight trajectory. The antithesis of a falling star.

For all we know this could be one of our satellites orbiting the planet up close. Although I cannot come up with an explanation for the ascending light we see. Anyone care to share some light into this strange video?

So far, Nasa has not commented on any of the strange sightings, but alien hunters have suggested these are alien ships monitoring our 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.

Referring to the four pin-points of light pictured in the skies of Mars (below), he said: ‘Four objects caught by Mars Curiosity, very difficult to make out on original image so I have used a few filters to highlight.

However video analyst Marc Dantonio – who, in the interests of full disclosure, has worked on projects for the U.S. government – told the Huffington Post that these are simply ‘dead pixels’ in the image – a regular problem in the world of graphics.

Indeed, many computers and mobile phones develop dead pixel problems, as do modern digital camera.

Dantonio said: ‘After watching the video, it is actually quite clear that these are one-pixel sized image anomalies.

‘I fully concur at this point that these are dead pixels on the imager.

‘All CCD [cameras] have them, and in a bland atmosphere like that at Mars, they would be very obvious as opposed to an active atmosphere like Earth, where they could end up hidden for a long time before anyone noticed them.’

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

NASA has not publicly commented on either ‘sighting’.

    This is the same youtube user who put up the troll video and some other questionable videos.

    Although, I’ve been waiting for something to happen with that rover.

    I’ve been keeping posted updates on the Rover in the forums scott =)
    It’s just started to move and has done a test of the laser.

  • Some sort of ball lightning?

    if its just ‘dead pixels’ though why would the dead pixels move? My tv’s got a dead pixel and it doesn’t move horizontally across the tv or anything

    Someone elsewhere has posted this complete with Killers From Space / Creature From The Black Lagoon music in the background. It just lacks a screaming, terrorized female. One expects sinister, grinning heads to be thrust into the lens of the camera shortly, LOL.

    It would be nice to know the exact timeline. There is no reference. At the end, he mentiones that it is probably 1fps. We don’t know do we.
    That makes it hard to judge.
    If it is the sun we are looking straight into, then a satellite will be unlikely, as they reflect the sun to appear/be visible.
    If it is real video and not some fabricated BS, it is rather fascinating.

    Be patient, but if someone or something arrives telling you something be very skeptical, misdirection 101! We do have instincts! When someone tells you one thing it could just be they have a secret agenda. Please philosophize!
