Wow this is some find ! It was sent to us from Matteo Ianneo in Italy. Bravo .Sure looks like a face to me .The coordinates,   Latitude  33°12’29.82″N, Longitude  12°55’51.21″W,   are confirmed and are found in the Google map of Mars below.

Forty-six year old Ianneo says he is passionate about the riddles of Mars.  He is from from the Puglia Region and the town of Cerignola (FG)

Ianneo says he discovered the new face on Mars by examining pictures sent back to Earth from an ESA probe orbiting the Red Planet and worked into Google’s map of Mars.  He presents the photos below.  He is unsure if the photos are optical illusions or a real sculptured face but feels the images will never-the-less cause a sensation around the world. 

BIN thanks Matteo Ianneo for the contribution of these fascinating images. 

Here’s a link to Google Earth download which also contains Google’s map of Mars, if you wish to confirm the images for yourself.

    It’s certainly eye-catching. I can’t wait for those with the requisite skills to analyze the photos and explain them away, or create elaborate theories of a past civilization.

    The web is overloaded to the gills with ‘desk’perts who think a few hours with photoshop makes them professional image examiners. Beyond that, not everyone is a juvenile delinquent and creating hoaxed photos. Most who suspect others of doing this are simply judging by there own bad habits.

    Lastly, natural formations as seen from space can be a lot like the clouds in the sky… taking on all kinds of different shapes.

    It looked too clear for me to believe that it’s genuine, but you never know.

    Martians worshipped Uncle Fester…….

    If you look at the relief using google earth/mars, it looks much less likely it is a structured face. (i.e. download google mars and go to the stated location – then use the shift/mouse wheel combination to “swoop” down to the surface. This, of course, assumes the relief data at said location is accurate (it is – or appears to be at the location of the “other” face).

  • Idiot Proof

    Interesting, I won’t comment on the veracity or authenticity of the photograph, other than to say I won’t comment, but, the “face” in the image(s) reminds me of an earlier Egyptian Pharoh

    You know what ‘incredible’ actually means? I saw a similar head in a cloud today

  • John L Sullivan

    If you are going to build a massive monument, why have it on its side? The only savng grace that I can give this, is if the “face” was part of a much larger standing structure, not unlike our pyramids

    yes it probably is genuine but its just the way the ground has formed on the surface, nothing to be alarmed about people! it happens on earth to u know! ui make a picture out of anythinjg if u want to see it, eg – the clouds

    Sorry…No GOOGLE for me!!!!

  • mjcasper

    It is interesting..but it looks like curly from the three stooges.

    A look at the top left corner of the photo in the page below will show that this is just two overlapped craters.

  • Mookie Bonging

    1000′s of astronomers agree that the ancient martians that left the face, worshipped,… Jimmy Durante.

    It’s the nose that gives him away!!!

    You people are crazier than I am.

    This is absolute proof Mars has fat bald headed aliens with giant ears, 100% confirmed!

    My life is changed dramatically from viewing these photos, I feel more connected to the aliens beings that like scooby doo. Pause play now!

    The best part about this article are the comments. Too funny!!!

    When I was a child my family took a trip to Carlsbad Caverns. At one point, deep within the bowels of the cavern, a tour guide suddenly shouted “Check this out!” He then shined a flashlight on a nondescript rock protrusion. Then it happened — the shadow that appeared on the back wall looked exactly like John F. Kennedy! We took this as obvious proof that it was aliens that killed Kennedy! (Or something like that, because this pattern-trick of light and shadow must mean *something* — right?)

    i have not seen anything as good as that well done to the guy for finding.

  • Eponymous

    Sorry. This just isn’t enough for me. I’ve seen stalagmite formations in caverns that looked just like Mary and the Christ child. There is NO other indicaton of any intelligent activity near this as far as I can see. Nah, I’m not impressed, ‘Cuda, but I stil like your posts.

    its only right that Alfred Hitchcock should be on Mars


    It looks like a close up of a penny to me. So what if life existed on Mars in the past? What does that change? Your government has been lying to you? Were not alone in the vast universe? Food and energy are not a calculation of inflation aka CPI?

    Looks like an Eisenhower dime imprint.
