The Face on Mars: Gone With the Wind?

The Face on Mars: Gone With the Wind?
The Face on Mars: Gone With the Wind? Do you still see the "face on Mars"? For many viewers who have seen the new images from Mars Global Surveyor, the face is (with apologies to Margaret Mitchell fans) gone with the wind. This particular view of the feature in the Cydonia region has been processed to replicate as closely as possible the lighting effects of the original image taken by Viking orbiter some 20 years ago. The resolution of today's Mars Orbiter Camera is 10 times better than that of the Viking system. MSSS / NASA
