Skeptics around the world gleefully exclaimed “I told you so!” as the first high-resolution images of the so-called ‘Face On Mars’ were released by NASA.The images were taken by NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft, which has been in orbit around the red planet since last September. The apparition is shown to be nothing more than a collection of hills on an eroded mesa. However, it remains to be seen whether this will act as cold-water or gasoline on the flames of die-hard paranoid conspiracy theorists in the UFO / ancient astronaut community.

Meanwhile, back on Earth, persons everywhere continued to see faces in certain clouds, rock formations, modern art works and potato chips.
