February 2, 2008: Happy face on Mars

It isn't the first face symbol they've found on Mars, but it's the happiest. The Planetary Society blog offers this one courtesy of NASA / JPL / MSSS:

This picture of a crater resembling a "happy face" was acquired by the Context Camera (CTX) on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on January 28, 2008. The unnamed crater is about 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) across. It is located among the Nereidum Montes, north of the Argyre basin, near 45.1 S, 55.0 W. North is toward the right and sunlight illuminates the scene from the upper right.

This is your smiley fac:

This is your smiley face on drugs:

Any questions?

WOW!! When you turn it upside down, it looks like a giant crater on Mars and not a smiley face at all!

...and hi, by the way.

Hi yourself, and welcome to the Cellar.

Wait till Elspode gets a load of you.

Let me just move out of the way here.....
I'm about to be lodged between the earth and the hooves of a pack of grazing cellarites...

Hi Euphoria!

Not at all, he's the perfect gentleman.

It's not the same face, but Google Mars has another "happy face" here:

Or did you mean hide from me? I'm harmless. Less than harmless, even.

he's more likely to drool on you. he's a big philanderer.

xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Feb 2 10:43 PM

But, but, it's humble respectful drool.

lumberjim  Saturday Feb 2 11:57 PM

humble like Uriah Heap?

xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Feb 3 12:26 AM

No, I was at that concert.

Oh, well as long as it's humble drool. Pretentious drool is the worst. :p
