Snapshot taken by NASA’s Mars rover
“Is this the picture that proves that there is life on Mars? And the existence of Bigfoot?” —The Telegraph
Today, January 23, in 2008 a picture taken by NASA’s rover on Mars began to circulate as “Bigfoot on Mars” despite being four years old at the time.
The news hit the UK first with the The Telegraph reporting, “The photograph, taken in 2004 by the Mars explorer Spirit, appears to show a human shaped object that looks startingly like previous photographs purporting to have captured Bigfoot.”
On this side of the Atlantic Ocean, a local ABC affiliate printed this in their Water Cooler section, “Recently, a space enthusiast enlarged a single frame from one of those images, and found a figure that some say resembles some sort of ‘Bigfoot’ creature.”
