An intriguing photo, taken in 2004 by the Mars explorer Spirit, appears to show a human shaped object, website reported Wednesday.

It looks startingly like previous photographs purporting to have captured Bigfoot.

Snapped at the rock-strewn Gusev Crater, the grainy picture appears to show a Bigfoot-style alien creature strolling casually down a hill.

Its bulbous "head" is cocked to one side, as if in concentration, while its right "arm" appears to be reaching out for balance.

The "creature" was spotted when space enthusiasts analysed photos beamed a hundred million miles to Earth by Spirit and its twin explorer Opportunity.

Spirit, sent to Mars to capture images from the surface of the planet, is one half of a USD 820 M mission, along with Opportunity.

It landed on Mars in January 2004 for a three month mission to search Gusev Crater, believed by scientists to be the bed of an ancient lake. If Mars once had surface water, it had the potential to support life.

Why don't they take another photo of the same area. If the "creature" has gone, then that would be creepy. (sorry creepy!)

LOL that the article made it here too... how many people are going to read about this (or have they all had their eyes aimed onto the middle of chalga superstars?)?

Anyway, the picture may seem creepy now, but trust me, in a few years better pictures will show that with a litle improvement in resolution, that was just a rock outcrop. Remember all that talk about a "face on Mars"?

It's not "wierd".
I just have an un-canny ability to attract people, from here and from other, planets!

Most of them have nothing to say, too!!

Keep your head up...a satellite, the size of a city bus, is about to crash.
Then again, never mind....apparently, it's heading towards, North America!

You're safe, for now! :-))

It is mildly interesting to me that this thread/story has more than 13,000 views. As near as I can tell the closest any other story got this year so far is barely over 2000 and most don't break the 1000 mark.

And if you look over the "creatures" shoulders (upper right hand corner) you will see, what appears to be, harmless rectangular objects or "Big Foot Shoe Boxes" but in fact and in actuality, they are missile silos "hidden" in the sand.

Sorry but this isn't a "satellite photo" this is a rover photo, so no conclusions can be made, concerning said, "creature".

Back to the drawing board, or Photo Shop!
