New images taken by a spacecraft orbiting Mars are astonishing to space fans.
A camera on the European Space Agency’s Mars Express craft captured a large crater on the Red Planet.
The unknown pit is said to be about 18.6 miles away.
Her unusual make-up has attracted her attention, which makes her look like a terrifying human eye.
Space fans have turned to Twitter to identify the ‘disciples’ of Mars.
A space lover Tweeted“Mars sleeps with one eye open! By the standards of Mars, this stained and colorful landscape represents part of the Aonia Terra, a high mountainous region south of Mars.
Other Twitter users are comparing the ‘eye of Mars’ to a similar geological feature on Earth called the ‘eye of the Sahara’.
The crater is located in the southern hemisphere of the Red Planet.
It is surrounded by other large and questionably more impressive pits.
The craters are thought to have formed billions of years ago due to a massive invasion of space rock impact.
Scientists like to study this region of Mars’ pits because the effects can detect material deep inside the planet that may not be visible elsewhere.
The deeper material in the eye-like pit is suspected to be a substance that was not depleted when Mars water was present in the hole.
More detailed observations will be needed to determine exactly what it is.
Scientists are continuing to study the geology of Mars to determine if ancient life could have existed on the planet.
