Face on Mars Movie

The European Space Agency website has a 3d movie/animation of the so-called ‘Face on Mars‘ which gives an excellent feel for the actual layout of the feature, imaged from the new camera on board Mars Express:

The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) science team have produced a dramatic 3D animation that beautifully simulates a flight over the Cydonia ‘Face on Mars’, one of the most famous surface features on the planet.

The movie sequence was produced through a combination of digital data from the HRSC and the Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) on board NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor…the 3D animation starts looking towards the East, and finishes with a still image looking South.

Now, how about those ‘pyramids’?
