UFO hunters claim that an image taken by NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover shows an ancient tree stump on the surface of the Red Planet.
A video posted to YouTube by Paranormal Crucible highlights the feature on the surface of Mars, speculating that it could be the petrified remains of a Martian tree. “Object is around 3 feet in height, and with numerous discoveries of plant and animal life on mars, it would be logical to assume, that a variety of tree either existed, or still exists on this enigmatic planet,” it explained, in a post accompanying the video.

“Paranormal Crucible makes a hypothesis that this could be an ancient tree stump on Mars,” adds the website UFO Sightings Daily. “Its a good assumption since NASA themselves said Mars was Earth-like when a solar explosion hit the planet.”
