So aside from the question. not too long ago NASA received this picture from one of their little robots traveling mars. I personally think it's a statue. Also note there are two broken structures next to the woman as well. Here is a link so everyone can see the statue.

So what do you guys think?

I think it's people's mind playing tricks on them, just like how we see familiar things in the clouds. It's seeing what we want to see. We're familiar with the shape of a woman after all.

It's making something out of nothing.

Kind of like those videos that think they seen a ghost go by in the background.

I don't think NASA has much to gain from photoshopping their photos.

No you completely misunderstood me.

I meant seeing something that is just a coincidentally familiar shape. Like we do with clouds. In this case, the texture is just reminiscent of something we're used to seeing and want to see.

Oh I see, jeez dude you're confusing as heck sometimes lol.

There are actually close up images of it that show it's a woman. But I think it's a statue of a woman. I'll try to find a more close up image on it.

When is the last time you saw a shadow that looks like this. Also how can it be a shadow without any structures to cast one?

People will see things that aren't there it is as NASA stated shadows and a trick of the light. The issue that folks don't understand is the human brain is hardwired to see shapes and patterns the term is Pareidolia which is why we see faces and such.

Pretty much.

I'm like 99% sure what we're actually looking at is a rock and shadows.

It's no different than the Old Man of the Mountain.

Even if alien life did visit Mars, why would it have a human profile?

Except there are not structures around it to cast a shadow that long or big.

I totally agree with this. It's not different than a Jesus on a toast to me... You see what you want to see, because it is how the brain is made.

So I take it nobody is actually looking at the picture. Again, how could it be a shadow if there are no structures to cast one.

Watch how easy this is to do though.

My image outline:


Now look at the original image: http://mashable.com/2015/08/06/nasa-mars-lady/

You probably see an alien cat now because I pointed something familiar out. It's like clouds man.

You didn't outline the head or arm which is clearly visible in the close up image I provided in the edited post.
