NASA Captures Photo of Martian

NASA has captured an image of what looks like a Martian. The photo was taken by NASA's Spirit rover on the edge of the Gusev Crater on Mars. You can see the photo by clicking the red tag below which has been positioned in the middle of the Gusev Crater.

The spoilsports over at Bad Astonomy claim that this is not actually a Martian at all but a rock,

"...puhlllleeeeze. A man? It’s a tiny rock only a few inches high. It’s only a few feet from the rover!", they say.

You could of course try a little alien hunting yourself by visiting our Star Viewer map.
