Astronomers have found the dunes on the surface of Mars that pattern similar to Morse code. The unique patterns detected in photographs sent by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a satellite belonging to the NASA on the red planet, in February 2016.
Sightings patterns of dark-colored sand dunes, as usual, immediately sparked controversy. Some fans of conspiracy theories and alien hunters say that's the message from the Martian inhabitants.

But NASA said, it's only a small anomaly on the surface of Mars. In other words: just coincidence. Furthermore NASA explained that the sand dunes on Mars were formed in a crater, which allegedly formed by asteroid impacts. Shape of the crater that resembles a circle that has a unique effect, particularly on the sand and wind flow that formed the hills.
So instead of elongated shape such as hills or dunes of sand in the desert on Earth, dunes on Mars instead is round, like the dots and dashes of Morse code like a flat.

Why does it happen on Mars? Scientists do not have the answer.
"This process is not yet understood (by the scientists) and became one of the motivations for researching the area," said NASA in a press release quoted by CNN last week.
But if the dunes was the Morse code strung by the extraterrestrials, what do you think it means?
