‘Face’ spotted on Mars as NASA releases bizarre photo

‘Face’ spotted on Mars as NASA releases bizarre photo
We’ve all heard of the face on the moon – but now it seems Mars has one too. And it looks a little creepy.

An image taken in 2001 by the thermal imaging camera on NASA’s Mars Odyssey probe has just been released by the space agency, seemingly revealing the planet’s ‘mugshot.’


“Do you see what I see? Is that a face staring out at me?” NASA boffins joke under the image.

NASA did not explain what features of the planet’s surface managed to form the ‘face,’ or indeed where on the planet it can be found.
