On this same day in 1976, a “face” was seen on the surface of planet Mars and photographed. So was there really a face on the red planet’s terrain?
NASA’s Viking 1 was searching Mars for possible landing sites for its sister spacecraft, Viking 2. As it snapped images of the planet’s Cydonian region, it came across an shadowed, two-kilometer elevated area that resembled a human face.
Here is the photo of the ”Face on Mars.”
The image was dismissed by Viking scientist Gerry Soffen as an optical illusion created by light and shadows. This conclusion was further strengthened by a photo of the same area taken in 2001.
There was no face. It was just an ordinary Martian mesa, not a sign of extraterrestrial life.
