Mars Rover Captures UFO In Image

The Mars Rover Spirit caught an interesting object with it’s panoramic camera earlier this month. While taking images of the crepuscular sky on Mars, Spirit captured an image with a streaking object passing overhead. It could be either the first meteor imaged from another world or one of seven decommissioned Earth probes still in orbit around Mars. Judging from the streak’s north/south orientation, it could possibly be the Viking 2 orbiter, which is in a polar orbit around Mars.
