NASA Photographs 'Starfleet Logo' on Surface of Mars

Proving that anomaly hunters aren't alone in spotted strange things out in space, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter snapped an image of the Red Planet which seems to show Star Trek's iconic Starfleet logo. The amusing photo was taken by the satellite back in April and released by the space agency this week.

Before one begins speculating that perhaps the odd formation was created by an alien race enamored with the classic TV series, NASA offered a more scientific explanation. According to the space agency, the 'logo' is actually the remnants of dunes which once sat on the surface of Mars. Find out how the sand piles wound up looking like the Starfleet symbol at the Coast to Coast AM website.
