Some seem to think it could be possible.
The image that was recovered from NASA shows what looks to be like a cloaked woman standing on the surface of Mars. Do you think it's a shadow? Or more than that?

There's a bigger version of the image, which can be found here.
In the day and age where there's Photoshop, it's hard to know if there's truth to any image seen online. But if this is a legitimate thing, boy is it creepy!
Another image circling online shows a crab-like object in the corner of this photograph:
TIME says that the phenomenon isn't really a crab, or a woman at all, and can be blamed on Pareidolia, which has been described as a psychological situation where humans see a familiar pattern in objects. So, that toast you didn't want to eat because it looked like Elvis? Yeah, that's the cause for it.
But, can you imagine if there was life on Mars? Pretty cool, eh?
