Welcome to the Anomaly Hunter’s Parrotopia: Geoglyphs on Mars
First, it was an elephant seen on Mars, now anomaly hunters have spotted a 1.5 mile long, 1/2 mile wide and 750 feet tall parrot. Did these researchers fall and hit their heads? Does this journal publish stuff wil-y nilly? Dare we call it parrotdolia?
A new paper claims this is not a Rorschach test for the extraterrestrially challenged, but an anatomically correct, three-dimensional rendering of a parrot on Mars that is too accurate for chance.
So concludes an independent team of two geologists, three veterinarians and a sculptor — who spent six years hashing out the details of three images from NASA’s now-defunct Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft taken between April 2000 and December 2005.
