A UFO enthusiast claims to have made "the find of the century" after spotting what he believes to be a woman on the surface of Mars, in an image taken by NASA's Curiosity rover.
Scott C. Waring, a prolific alien conspiracy theorist and founder of UFO Sightings Daily, says the image shows a woman lying on her back on one of the Red Planet's rock formations.

He says the sprawled outline has either been "carved into the ground or [the] roof of a structure", and says it's one of only a few carvings he has seen that "depict a human-like species".
While even Waring admits the figure is "very crude", he says that can be put down to three things: time, erosion, and "possibly a war that may have caused Mars to be this way".
However, he colourised the photo to make it clear which piece of rock he was referring to.

He believes the woman is wearing a dress akin to that worn by "ladies ... back in the 1700s here on Earth" - but admits the figure's breasts have left him puzzled.
"Something confusing is her chest, it has the breasts one above the other, unlike women on Earth who have them side by side," he wrote.
