Nasa recently released some Martian photographs taken by the Curiosity Rover, however one of the image shows an unexplained bright and mysterious object. The image was captured by the rover’s “Navcam” on June 16, 2019 at 03:53 UTC.

Curiosity has a total of 17 cameras & two Navcams and has been sending pictures since it landed on the Martian surface in August 2012.

This is not the first picture with such an anomaly spotted. On April 3, 2014, a similar bright white spot was spotted and scientists believed it to be a reflection from a rock. Again, in December 2018, a similar shiny object was spotted and this time no-one was sure what it is but was thought to be a meteorite.

As of now, there have been no comments but the thing is surely mysterious as neither the before nor the after images show the white bright light. All images released publicly by Nasa were taken at 3:53 UTC
