Experts studying the phenomenon of UFOs suspectNASA's American Aerospace Agency in the fraud of the century. In one of the images, recently obtained from the surface of the Red Planet by the rover “Curiosity”, a strange flying object got into the camera lens. In shape, it resembles a flying eagle. Does NASA really deceive us, or does someone just have a very strong imagination?
Is there life on Mars?
Martian scientific laboratory "Curiosity"has been studying Mars since 2012. During this time, the rover managed to make some interesting discoveries and research. For example, he found an unusual meteorite, methane, clay, an ancient Martian lake, was investigating the Gale crater. The device often sends photographs of the surface of Mars to Earth, takes selfies.

Interestingly, the progress of the mission, as well as the fact of its existence, has already been tried to be questioned many times.
For example, the other day controversial caused a snapshot, published on the NASA site in June of this. Ufologist Scott Warring reported that a strange object was found in the photo, similar to ... an eagle soaring in the sky.
As Warring points out, the first “flying anomaly”noted Argentine "UFO expert" Marcelo Irasusta. According to ufologists, what they see can be "another proof" of the existence of life on Mars. Or, on the contrary, it proves that the US space agency is deceiving everyone - and the rover, in fact, is on Earth, on a small isolated Canadian island of Devon. And a bird caught in the frame in turn is an ordinary bird of the earth.
"Either there are living things on Mars, or - althoughI do not like this idea, but it also needs to be taken into account - the rover may not be on the Red Planet, but on the Canadian island Devon, ”Waring wrote in his blog.
Warring explains that NASA uses the islandDevon as a platform for testing new space technologies, since the island’s landscape is very similar to the Red Planet. In addition, here the agency is studying issues related to how people can exist in the conditions of Mars.
On Devon Island, NASA is testing new technologies and doing some scientific research related to Mars.
In terms of science
To explain the detected “something” in the picture is verysimply. The “soaring eagle” can actually be: a normal camera flash, highly charged particles of cosmic rays, or simply reflected sunlight, and not some kind of “anomaly”.
You can choose any option. But the most probable is precisely cosmic rays (radiation). The fact is that the density of the atmosphere of Mars is less than 1% of Earth's, therefore it does not protect the planet from solar and other types of radiation. This radiation can affect the operation of optical equipment, creating so-called image artifacts.
