The video, posted by prolific UFO hunter Streetcap1 on Friday, has surprisingly few views. Perhaps it's because the channel has a dubious reputation for source material, with critics saying SC1 often fakes images for more channel views and subscriptions.

Well, I'm convinced.

OK, the Martians are just messing with us now. First they leave us a jelly donut, now they launch a rocket right behind us.

It's a boinga.

Something something Chemtrails, something something precious bodily fluids.

Mars is hit by a squajillion meteors every day.  It's not surprising that the rover cameras might see one.
 
2014-01-28 01:54:55 PM
Which is more likely, martians have space craft or martians have street lights?
 
2014-01-28 01:55:20 PM
I'm saying it's aliens.

lens flare from a streetlight.

Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Regardless of the dubious video poster, the actual source image is from NASA.

I can't think of any good explanation for it... could there be a comet that we don't know about that's visible from Mars? Falling meteor that appears to be going up due to an illusion of its angle? Dust particle flying close to the camera?

I'm going to go with 'de-orbiting debris or meteor'.

Just because something is posted on YouTube, that doesn't make it a video. It's a photo.

Who the hell posts a video of a still picture?

There are hundreds of explanations, but instead the video poster goes "OMG UFO BBQ!"

That's what we get for drawing a giant penis on their planet with the rover

I know that I do not have your superior intellect and education. But could it be that, once again, you are angry at something else and are looking to take it out on me?

Pictures from the same angle ten minutes later show no object, so it's short lived (not a comet). Probably a meteor.

I was setting off fireworks. Case closed.

I wonder how long of a "video" of a still photo YouTube allows you to upload. I'm not going to check, though.
 
2014-01-28 02:11:08 PM
Maybe it's one of Mars' moons, distorted by the rover camera being slow to catch the image?

The rover does not take video, there isn't enough bandwidth to Mars to support that for one thing. Sure, some people have put together some stills. I mean, uh, aliens.

I was gonna say, "People who want to make some sort of commentary/analysis." Then I was going to use, as an example, a Katy Perry video where the entire audio track was removed and replaced with some insights about how much better it is without sounds. Then I realized that a video and a still picture are not the same things, so never mind.

I don't know how I ended up in a 3 Amigos thread two days in a row, but I like it.

Soon it will be revealed that Mars is actually a Death Star type city-planet covered in a thick layer of red dust to disguise itself. That was a class 3 probe sent to determine if our technology level is high enough to steal yet.

i used to have silk marvin boxers that asked "where's the kaboom?"

It's a speck on the camera lens. We see this all the time in alleged ghost photos, too. It's dust, ice, a speck of dirt, or something else that was on the lens.

Either that, or it's some natural thing. A meteor, most likely.

Does it hurt to be stupid? I always wondered that. Are stupid people aware of their painfully stupid stupidity, or are they too stupid to know they're ridiculously, painfully stupid?

No one would have believed in the first years of the twenty-first century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same. No one gave a thought to the older worlds of space as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of life upon them as impossible or improbable. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. At most terrestrial men fancied there might be other men upon Mars, perhaps inferior to themselves and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise. Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.

Anyone bother to check to see if it might be Phobos?

Phobos orbits Mars once every 7 hours and 39 minutes.   The apparent velocity of Phobos viewed from the Martian surface is such that it takes just 4 hours and 15 minutes to rise and set.  That's 180 degrees in 255 minutes (approximately), so in 10 minutes it would move about 7 degrees, which *MIGHT* put it out of view or make it less visible.

/Probably isn't Phobos, though.
//My vote is for "meteor", with a secondary guess of "man-made debris kicked up by wind".

God I hate these UFO morons. Yes, there was indisputably a UFO in that picture. Which means "huh, what's that?" NOT "OMG Aliens!"

Can you link to that video anyway? I'm curious.
