For years alien chasers have been trying to convince the world elongated skulls found among some ancient civilisations on Earth were actually those of extraterrestrials who visited our planet thousands of years ago.
The widespread theory claims advanced ETs visited ancient civilisations on Earth several thousands of years ago and taught people how to build ancient monuments such as the Egyptian pyramids, and the UK’s Stonehenge.
The theories even claim these superior beings ended up being held as leaders or even revered as gods.
The theories began when deformed and elongated skulls were found among many of our ancestor civilisations across the globe including Egypt and Peru – with conspiracists believing they were from large-headed alien visitors.
Now alien hunters believe they have spotted the skulls on Mars, convincing them the bones found on Earth really were from another planet.
YouTube channel Paranormal Crucible, which spends hours sifting through images of the Red Planet taken by NASA, has released a short film, called Alien Egyptian Skull Found on Mars, claiming to have spotted a huge elongated skull on the Martian surface.
A blurb published with the video said: “I decided to take a second look at this artefact and do a little more enhancing and re-building to get a better idea of what it actually was.
“It is an elongated skull, possibly thousands of years old in my opinion.
“I also mirrored the image and discovered a possible skull encrusted altar with a pyramid either side, and a possible alien head-dress.
“I will be enhancing the mirrored image in a few days and will either create a video report on it or i will post the image on my facebook page, so far its very interesting.”
The film shows a strange-shaped rock, that it suggests looks like one of the ancient Egyptian skulls.
However, the channel has come in for severe criticism, because it digitally manipulates its discoveries to make them appear more like the object it claims to have found – as is done in this case.
Theories about alien elongated skulls have been slated many times as it has been shown that several ancient cultures elongated their skulls on purpose by binding infants heads through pieces of wood.
After the alien elongated skulls theories were debunked, ET believers came up with a counter claim, that humans on Earth purposefully elongated their skulls, as the evidence suggests, to emulate their alien leaders or Gods.
Despite the arguments against the footage, fellow alien hunter Scott C Waring was left convinced by it.
He blogged on his website UFO Sightings Daily: “Here is a great redo of one of the most amazing faces ever found.
“A giant skull on a mountain. Also in this photo are a lot of signs of broken cornerstones, walls, and other parts of structures strewn about.
“Clearly this location was once a thriving community. Great work by Paranormal Crucible at retouching it to make it more clear, and to see what it might have looked like when it was new.”
There have been an array of similar discoveries in NASA images of Mars, including other skulls.
But sceptics, and even NASA scientists, have pointed out that they are always the same colour as the Martian rocks they are discovered among.
They say these objects are just misinterpreted by the phenomena known as pareidolia, when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar shapes and objects like faces or animals in textures or patterns such as rock surfaces or clouds.
