According to viewers, the object has a smooth, possibly metallic, exterior, with some saying it appears to have lights.
Some UFO enthusiasts have even jumped on the image, claiming it is an alien spacecraft, and possible proof of intelligent alien life, reports the Daily Star.
There have been countless other rover pictures put forward by alien chasers amid claims they show ruins, fossils, or even live creatures on Mars, but most have appeared to be just odd-shaped rocks.
