‘Marshenge’, the images exciting UFO enthusiasts/Mister Enigma/YouTube
UFO enthusiasts are likening a stone circle on Mars to the ancient Stonehenge landmark in the UK.
A NASA image of several stones on the red planet has got alien enthusiasts in a spin, with many claiming the picture is an indication of extra-terrestrial life.
“This is something remarkable,” said Scott C Waring of UFO Sightings Daily. “It’s two circles of rocks and one square in its centre.”
The new ’discovery’ is just the latest in a long line of Nasa images of Mars which conspiracy theorists believe is evidence that the planet once hosted ancient civilisations.
“(It is) always a circle. Sometimes with big rocks, sometimes smaller, but always on small hills,” added Waring.

Photographs of the two structures appear on a video featured on YouTube channel Mister Enigma.
The Martian structure is described in the footage as “A perfectly circular platform with a strange cluster of stones emerging from it. It looks eerily similar to what we have located here on Earth in Amesbury, Wiltshire, known as Stonehenge.
“I know the formation is not an exact match, nor am I saying it is, indeed, a Stonehenge set up,” the narrator adds.
"I am just saying there is something strange about this area and it looks very much like the mysterious ancient stone circle of Stonehenge.
"Could the builders of Stonehenge have visited Mars and did they build the same thing there? Or did we have visitors teach us how to build these things and do the same for long-lost beings on Mars as well?”
Stonehenge, located in Wiltshire, England, was built around 3000BC.
Its purpose is still shrouded in mystery, with theories extending to a burial site or ancient astrology.
