Yeah that first shot is a little too real to dismiss quickly.. especially when I looked at the clip of it again closely, I could be wrong but it appeared that the face was moving a little, and my first impression was that it was laughing.. yeah I know, it sounds a bit "out there", but just sharing my thoughts..
I think that the circumstances around the pics definitely add to their effect.. I mean, other shots of similiar things (like that supposed face on Mars) are IMO a steaming load, but they aren't taken in the same situation.. they seem more like a bad sci-fi writers idea..
Sh!t. Thats Farkin weird. If you were skeptical you would automatically jump to the conclusion that its fake. They always say that you can edit and change things with todays technology and blah blah. But since I've been brought up under catholic beleifs, and Ive always been an open minded person about things like this, im really puzzled. I even sent it to my mums email at work and she didn't know what to think.
