Face On Mars? How About Man With Diving Goggles On The Moon?

(Before It's News) Man with glasses on the Moon. Have you seen it? In the video below, diving goggles are represented by two craters in darkness: Rothmann (42 km, smaller, right), and Lindenau (53 km, bigger, on the left). Below, seems to distinguish a smile-shaped mouth, small in comparison with the eyes, and on the corners are like some cheeks. The nose is a hollow place.

There is not something mysterious, not a ‘face on Moon’ showing that was made by aliens. It’s just pure coincidence, in which I filmed the Moon when it reached a certain stage; the Moon’s relief shadows formed this illusion. That figure could inspire creators of cartoons.
 The image is inverted as seen through the telescope. Craters in question are located on the edge of Rupes Altai mountain string which in video are on the left, and ends with the crater Piccolomini.
