NASA recently tweeted some images of the surface of Mars and it’s sparked multiple conspiracy theories.
People have taken to Twitter to say they’ve spotted a small white triangle on the surface that could be a “sign” and one person even claimed to spot an alien.

Nasa’s Perseverance Rover account tweet stated: “Peering inside to look at something no one’s ever seen.
“I’ve abraded a small patch of this rock to remove the surface layer and get a look underneath. Zeroing in on my next target for #SamplingMars.”
One person replied with a screenshot of a small white patch on one of the photos and said: “Definitely a tiny white alien.”
Another wrote “Dude, what is this?” and circled two white patches in one of the photos.
One of those patches is a white triangle shape that is causing much debate.

Some people think it’s just a rock while others thinks its an alien “symbol”.
One person tweeted: “I’m curious, is this small white arrow pointing at anything interesting? Or is it just a small white triangular speck in the rock?”.
Another said: “anyone see that small triangle? i think its a sign..”
Another person asked: “New type of mineral?”
Nasa hasn’t actually commented on the triangle shape or any of the other signs and symbols people think they’re seeing.
Mars has such a rocky and dry surface it can be easy to think you’re looking at a pattern or a shape when actually all you’re seeing is rock and dust.
