.The latest image from NASA's Curiosity Rover that shows a bright light has enthusiasts who are all about Unidentified Flying Objects curious The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday.

"One possibility is that the light is the glint from a rock surface reflecting the sun. When these images were taken each day, the sun was in the same direction as the bright spot, west-northwest from the rover, and relatively low in the sky." Guy Webster a spokesman for Curiosity's journey told The Chronicle. "The rover science team is also looking at the possibility that the bright spots could be caused by cosmic rays striking the camera's detector."

NASA's second rover on the red planet had a very long journey on the red planet, landing last August to begin taking in its air and further investigating its certain aspects BBC News reported.

It has dealt with a sand dune, and also come across two kinds of argon gas in argon 36, and argon 38. Curiosity was able to find these through its Sample Analysis at Mars tool (SAM) a press release reported. The Rover discovered rare meteorites through its Sample Analysis at Mars tool in October the American Geophysical Union reported in a press release.

The rover came across a mysterious rock the size of a jelly doughnut Jan. 16, a couple feet in front of it as part of its already storied past according to Discovery News.

According to The Chronicle, six journeys without astronauts have gone up to outer space dating back to 1976 and the arrival of two Viking spacecrafts to find proof that there were living species on the red planet before eventually coming to the conclusion that none existed.

Another interesting note includes the Curiosity Rover going in the interior of the red plant's Gale Crater Aug. 6, 2012.
