Mystery: Face on Mars

On July 25th 1976 the Viking Orbiter1 recorded an unusual formation. NASA released the information to the public with the following text.

The picture shows eroded mesa-like landforms. The huge rock formations in the center that resembles a human head, is by shadows giving the illusion of eyes, nose, and, mouth. There is more, for years people speculated about the image in the hopes that It was an artificial structure. After all it does look in every respect as if it were made by an intelligence. Its about 1 mile across and was taken from a distance of 1,162 miles.

The Global Surveyor began orbiting Mars on September 11, 1997. Among its other duties was the re-imaging of the area the face had been photographed in. The image returned was less than many had hoped for. Too bad really, the last image published here was taken with 10 times better resolution than the Viking pictures, and it was taken at a distance of only 257 miles.
