Ok, Probably not. Perhaps it’s something that fell off the NASA Phoenix polar lander? But at first glance, it SURE DOES look like a bipedal alien that just crawled out of it’s hole that’s looking at the lander. Even in that light atmosphere, sound of retro rockets would carry an awful long ways. But it’s fun to wonder “what if?”. The “alien” even seems to be casting a shadow in the correct direction.Larger image below the cut.
