A Castle And Faces On Mars

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Italian researcher Matteo Ianneo, presents in his book Messages From Mars I°  elements common to our civilization:  human faces and profiles,animals, ruins, cities and vegetation that he found scanning Mars with Google Earth.  The 172 page book is the result of his careful and diligent study  of his  step by step  searching the surface the Red Planet. 

This is the first “face that Ianneo found.  His first discovery was made in September 2009 at 3am Italian time. It can be found on Google Earth on Mars at  Latitude 33°12’29.82″N Longitude 12°55’51.21″

He says, “Here is the Face of Gandhi. This face is very important to me, many human elements and aspects can be seen: the round head with a dark part that seems to represent the subject’s hair, an ear, an eyebrow, an eye, the nose, mouth and neck. I have to say that it really is a good profile. Of course, I leave it to the reader to formulate an opinion and/or personal judgement.” 


Here is “A beautiful face which in my opinion is feminine in nature.” says Ianneo. 

Google Earth is as follows:Latitude 43°19’19.30″N Longitude 22°53’5.29″E

Inneo writes in his book  Messages From Mars I°:  If this face is artificial in nature, it must surely have been carved by some unknown means. My hypothesis is a sculpture carved from above by technology unknown to us. Perhaps enormous spaceships left these marks as a sign of their arrival on this planet – a type of competition to see who was the most powerful godexplorer and conqueror of universes.”

Ianneo found a castle on Mars  using  the Google Earth program for Mars at the Martian coordinates: Latitude 84 ° 13’27 .72 “N Longitude 22 ° 32’19 .53″ W.

Ianneo writes, “I kept thinking that what was amazing about these images was that they shared common details to us, i.e. human features. I wasn’t surprised that later I discovered others. And so it was. As I scanned the surface of Mars, in one area I noticed the profile of an anthropomorphic being.”  The position on Google Earth is as follows: Latitude 40°01’25.89″N Longitude 8°58’21.53″W

Ianneo says, “I would like you to look at this last discovery that made me incredibly happy: the face of the Holy Shroud.”   The position on Google Earth is as follows: Latitude 38°20’49.26″N Longitude 13° 2’5.56″W

Ianneo says, “Remember that every face examined by me is not the result of erosion caused by natural elements, but hidden wonders created by people who dominated this extraordinary planet.”

His critics are harsh and say his work is “useless” and only the product of  “a very well known phenomenon of perception of the human mind: to be able to, or to want to see human faces in everything. This feature of the human brain has been widely studied and has the scientific name of pareidolia.”  His efforts have been called the “height of misinformation.”

      O’ My Lord! That face kinda looks like Lyndon Johnson LOL/

      So looks like we are all have Pareidolia because thousands of people have seen the well know face on Mars which we know NASA is living about.

    • iamamerican

      Great discoveries, I’ve always held the theory that our ancestors came from Mars.

      • Freeamerican

        Maybe yours did!

    • Endtime

      Be careful. It so easy to imagine faces and other things in structures. Just look up in the sky when there are clouds. You can easily see faces coming and going. And other things.
      Look at rocks in the nature. You easily figure out what looks like a face here and a face there, an animal, a hut …
      And so on…

      This will not be news before it’s news

      I think these faces on Mars were carved by intelligent water.

    • Stēkō

      God, I knew it, the shroud is a Martian knock off !
      Those pesky little green guys, next thing you know they’ll find a way to make a Kenyan the President of the United Sta…………… Oh, crap.

      What’s next? A forty mile long Martian billboard advertising ” The Future will be better tomorrow ” ( Quayle. ).

      God bless
      Put your hope in Jesus, at least then when you see His face you won’t burst into flames.

      The city of Helium and the face of John Carter.

      • Augendieallessehen

        Same initials as Jesus Christ.

    • QuestionMan

      Good luck seeing any detail of the coordinates…Google diffuses any clarity for zooming in…like we would need to be concerned over people’s privacy on Mars!

    • MSG Chicken

      I baked cookies and once in awhile one of them looks like the cookie monster. So there is truth to this article.

      The other time I made spaghetti and spilt some on the floor and gosh darn if it didn’t come out looking like the Mona Lisa.

      Most people are deluded easily.

      An Italian guy finds shapes on Mars that look like Benito Mussolini and the face from the shroud of Turin. I am waiting for an American to find on Mars a likeness of Jesse Ventura and Miley Cyrus.

      Excellent work Matteo … ” Who looks outside … dreams. Who looks inside … awakens.” ~ Carl G. Jung …

      Sheesh. Even aliens have their pareidolia. :roll:

    • Arcturus

      Looks more like Mussolini from an Italian postage stamp.
