You have to give it to the little green men on Mars - they like towers, just like earthlings. That is what UFO conspiracy website images claim, at least.

In a year of magical Martian images of alien life, as HNGN has reported, hunters find new proof that intelligent aliens built three mile-high towers that are standing in a straight line on that Red Planet.

A UFO hunter looked at Google images and collected information from Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Odyssey missions. They provide "conclusive evidence" of intelligent aliens due to the mathematical precision of the structures, explains inquisitor.

The excitement over the three towers was sparked by a video uploaded by a YouTube channel Mundodesconocido. It mentioned in its promotional blurb that the towers could have been built by intelligent extra-terrestrials.

It said: "Investigating on some Mars images, we have recently found a row of huge towers located in the Martian area of Terra Meridiani. Due to their peculiar features, we believe that they have an artificial origin. In the following video, we will show you all the amazing information and evidence, as well as animated 3D models that will allow you to evaluate correctly the information we propose."

It was immediately picked up by another conspiracy theorist, UFO blogger Scott C Waring. He wrote in "There is a whole planet full of buildings and artefacts to be discovered on Mars. Here is a fantastic example of that posted by Youtube user Mundodesconocido. He found three towers that look to be almost a mile in height or more. They all look like they were made well because none of them is destroyed. They would be perfect for setting up a human Mars base at...if they are empty of course."

Ufologists have been convinced that Mars is full of alien hotspots.

However, NASA dismisses the entire speculations and image as just rock formations. It could be only pareidolia, when the "brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects such as faces or animals shapes in patterns like clouds or the textures of a rock."
