Hi all ATS users. This is my first thread, so I thought i'd keep it fun.
This is a face i found while exploring on Google Earth Mars. I've posted pics before on some one else's thread (recently), and another web-site, only because i wanted to show someone, and i couldn't make threads yet on ATS.

Here's the pic



Heres the co-ordinates. 43°42'25.71"N 42°43'29.71"E

In my personal opinion, this is way better than the other Mars face, this one even has a horn coming out of it's head. If you go to oblique view it even looks symmetrical. The whole area around the face is pretty interesting. There's a lot of pyramidal looking structures, and yes I know it's all natural (or is it? lol), but this place is pretty cool to look at. Anyways i'll leave it up to you to explore any further.

Peace 2 all

Good choice for a first thread, it is very intriguing. i have always been interested in our red neighbor, its almost if it is begging us to visit...

this was posted on a recent thread (maybe was you op idk). this to me is a good example of the paradeilia(?) thing people mention. the origional cydonia face is more convincing to me. but i'm open to this being something aswell.
if there was any civilisations on mars in the past then surely all that sand blowing around for a few thousand years would have their monuments looking a bit obscured, so i cant really argue against this.
i'm far from a skeptic, but i'd say this is just more rocks.

I think it is laughing at us... Maybe it's just laughing at all of the debunkers??

More proof people where and ARE still up there.

And for people saying it only looks like it a little,with sand blowing for thousands of years its bound to look like that. Just imagine how the "Crazy Horse" carving out of a mountain will look in 2,000 years.

Hey Hazz - if I may:

This is SE of that "face". It's definitely a 4-sided pyramid like we see in Giza:

(Please right-click image and click "View image/picture")









With the exception of the mouth, it's pretty damned symmetrical if you ask me!

Hmm maybe that too. But nah, seriously I think it's that one thing forgot what it's called where the brain will try to make a face out of a random pattern.

Prove it.

I'll take a direct link from the MRO over a google earth pic any day.

Yeah i'm pretty sure it was me who posted on that thread. I looked everywhere when i found this and couldn't find it anywhere.

I totally agree with you. It was my original intention to post this as an example of Pareidolia.

Thanks for the pics impaired!

Faces where there are none: Pareidolia
Seeing a face means two things: recognizing a shape as a face, and (possibly) recognizing the person from the face. Both are incredibly important tasks, and we are very good at both of them. So good, in fact, that we see faces even where there are none.

The fact that we see a few lines as a (Chernoff) face is testament to this. Even an image that is reduced to two points, two lines, and a circle, is seen as a face that can be curious or scared, happy or sad. This is also how caricatures and cartoons work: a distorted or reduced face, even when attached to a thing or an animal, is recognized as a face, and the attached object as a person. This also works for the design of certain objects like cars, which have headlight "eyes."

The fact that we have faces around us almost everywhere we look makes it hard to appreciate this phenomenon. So let's look at some faces that appear where there clearly are none. This effect is called Pareidolia.

Perhaps the most famous example is the "Face on Mars", which was photographed by a Viking probe in the 1970s. It inspired a lot of speculation about life on Mars (and some crappy movies), but it later was shown – not surprisingly – to not be a face at all.

In times of Google Maps, faces can also be found on closer planets.

Finally, there are faces in our every-day non-visual communication: smilies. Two or more punctuation characters can express joy, astonishment, shock, and affection. Who would have thought that these mundane characters that just structure the more important text could convey so much meaning?

So would I, up until their recent track record of editing and Airbrushing photos.

There are numerous threads showing the editing of pictures(not the airbrushing ones).

Nice post and welcome.. Question though for anyone. This looks like the updated photo NASA took of the face location that i famous. It looks like the photo releaased, but turned in a different direction.

I could be wrong but thought I would ask.

Just to set things in the right perspective, the "proof" you are referring to about the Macedonian face was shown after altering the pic by running it through several filters which distorted the original image. While it may or may not be a face, you can hardly call this proof.

While the face may be pareidolia the pyramid is well...... a perfect pyramid. I also find it interesting that at cydonia near the other well known `face` there are also pyramids.

I know, it's very interesting. As i said, I originally posted this as an example of Pareidolia, but the more i look at this area, the more it intrigues me.

I for one would like to think that Mars, or Earth or any other place anyway, has had life in a certain past, that we will one day discover.

I also would like to think that maybe, some places like Mars, Earth or others, are bases of some other life, alien to us, or at least pit stops.

I am totally convinced that alien life exists, near 100% convinced that some of that life has visited us and is still doing so.

However, I don't think it has any face pattern. It sure does look like it, but what is it really? Rocks, if you ask me.

It would be surprising at least, that humans on Earth are making crop circles with alien faces, and aliens on Mars are making rock formations that look like a human face. Or would it?
