New impact crater on Mars caused by a mysterious ‘Impactor’ (Video)

A bizarre looking new impact crater in Elysium Planitia that was first discovered by the Mars Context Camera (CTX, also onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter) which formed between February 2012 and June 2014.

 
According to NASA, it appeared as a dark streak with multiple secondary craters, which was not seen in the previous CTX image. The image shows a very distinct crater rim and ejecta that is much darker than the surrounding dust-covered terrain. The distribution of the rayed ejecta suggests that the impactor struck from the west.

It is not clear what kind of object has been crashed on the Martian surface since NASA only speaks about 'An Impactor'.

Could it be a crashed UFO?
