Stars Wars spaceship on Mars? NASA probe spots mysterious object like 'Star Destroyer' on Red Planet 19:19, 24 August 2015 By Sam Adams A new photo taken by the probe shows a what will look, to many, like a Star Destroyer from the blockbuster film franchise NASA Sighting: Object spotted by Mars Curiosity Rover probe This mysterious object spotted by NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover will look eerily familiar to millions of Star Wars fans. A new photo taken by the probe shows a what will look, to many, like a Star Destroyer from the blockbuster film franchise. The object was spotted by UFO expert Scott C Waring. He said: "I found this anomaly in the latest Curiosity Rover photo. The black object looks like a crashed UFO." Mr Waring said the spacecraft was only about 2.5 to 3 meters across, "so it probably only held a few passengers," RT reports. Star Wars: A Star Destroyer from Return of the Jedi The object has striking similarities in shape to Star Destroyers from Star Wars, which were space warships used primarily by the Empire. However, the fictional vessels are many times larger than the craft spotted by Mr Waring. Although it is highly unlikely that the object spotted is a spacecraft of any kind, until this - and other anomalies pictured by the Curiosity Rover - are properly explained. For this reason, it is fair to take a guess- some of them on what these objects really are. "There is only one photo of the ship. The rover usually takes many of each area, but not this one. Perhaps tomorrow it will take more," Waring wrote. Other objects spotted on Mars which have been published recent weeks have been likened to anything from a ghost to space boobs.
