Mars attacks! Incredible sunset over Australia looks like the Red Planet is about to collide with Earth
- Incredible photographs show a 12.5 mile lenticular cloud formation over Tasmania, Australia during sunset
- Photos, captured by Wayne Painter, 70, depict what looks like craters, mountains, and sand dunes in the sunset sky
- While many say that the incredible view looks like the surface of Mars is about to hit Earth, others claim the cloud formation looks like a large dragon’s head
These breathtaking images of a sunset over Tasmania look like the surface of Mars is seconds from colliding with Earth.
The striking photos, taken by local Wayne Painter, 70, in late October, capture what look like craters, mountains and deep red horizons in a view that is out of this world.
Some have said the images of the 12.5 mile wide lenticular cloud also looks like a dragon’s head looming over the Australian island.
The vast deep red horizons and craters make it seem as though our closest neighbour in the solar system is moments away from colliding with Earth
Eagle eyed fans of the photographs have said that the images look like the surface of Mars or a massive dragon’s head looming over Tasmania
The priceless views were captured by Wayne Painter, 70, who immediately ran home to grab his camera to capture the moment
Trees, sprawling mountains in the horizon, and open water, combined with the gorgeous sunset make Tasmania look beautiful during dusk
The dragon similarities are plain to see here as one large crater in the lenticular cloud could double as a large looming eye in the sunset sky
The waves at the end of the formation make the clouds look like large Martian mountains on the horizon, with other patterns in the sky sharing an uncanny resemblance to sand dunes
An airplane flies into the horizon in this image, no doubt giving passengers some of the best views one could ever have on a flight
