An alien hunters website has claimed to have found the remains of an ancient 'temple' on the surface of Mars.

Analysing a picture taken by the Curiosity rover the website ufosightingsdaily.com claims to have found rocks that share a stark resemblance with some of the pillars made in ancient Greece because why not.

Incredibly this is actually one of the more reasoned claims made by the site which also believes it has found evidence of a boat on the planet's surface.

While it is indeed true that many scientists believe Mars was once covered by a giant ocean, this was over 3.7 billion years ago, when life was only just getting started on Earth, let alone on Mars.

Then of course there's the issue of the temple. It's not the first time that religious structures have been identified on the planet. A mysterious pyramid temporarily caused the internet to have a minor meltdown and indeed still remains unexplained as NASA was unable to bring the rover in for closer inspection.

Geologists do however believe the pyramid could quite easily have been a naturally forming object.

So are these the remains of an ancient temple on Mars? Probably (almost certainly) not. Unless of course Mars was the that little Summer getaway for the Greek gods. but it's important to remember that for every 1000 possible 'greek temples', they may just stumble onto one genuine find. For now though, the search continues.
