A strange looking boulder found on Mars appears to show eye sockets and a nose, could it be the remains of a Martian skull, or just a rock?

So it doesn’t really look like Mars, looks more like a desert, but this photo of the Mars landscape has people wondering. This photo was taken by a panoramic NASA camera known as Spirit.

One alien-spotter estimated: “The skull is 15cm with binocular eyes 5cm apart. The cranial capacity is approximately 1400cc. There appears to be a narrow pointed small mouth, so this creature most likely is a carnivore.”

“The nose area is broad and blunted as you would expect to see in a cold and windy landscape. Is he decapitated or is he buried up to his neck?” I would say decapitated, can’t really see much of a neck, or maybe that’s what Martians look like… just a head.

There were previous images of a skull which were spotted on Mars in 2006, but these were believed to have been tampered with.

So do you think it’s a skull, or just a weird shaped boulder? I personally think it’s a boulder, although I hope I’m wrong!
