Elephant on Mars Sculpted by Lava Flow

3 posts in this topic

The dried flood of lava over the surface of Mars has created the spitting image of the eye and trunk of an elephant.

The curve of the animal's forehead and the dent of an ear also appear in a new photo taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

"This is a good example of the phenomena 'pareidolia,' where we see things (such as animals) that aren't really there," University of Arizona planetary geologist Alfred McEwen wrote in an update posted on the university's HiRISE website.

One of the comments was pretty funny, the one that said the 'Elephant' was proof of "Perambulating Prehistoric Plutonian Pachyderms" and wanted NASA to come clean about them... :lol:
