Well, Well (it’s Yerson, for another time). What an interesting location in Google Earth this is. It was sent by Nacho Bizznez, from Denver who wrote: “Found a face just outside of Area 51 with Google Earth. Interestingly, there is a very detailed face of someone.” I believe this is the best Google earth illusion I saw in my life. Look how the face curves are detailed, and how they compose a very detailed face of a man. I only think that it is little worn out. Do you agree? It looks more like a Jesus, only meaner. Or is it Hannibal Lecter, just like on DVD cover? What is your opinion? Well, I’ll let you decide for your selves. – Yerson

    no i think it’s a bad illusion

    Mmm I dont think is the best google earth illusion…

  4. Homfrog says:

    Looks like some russian guy. With the furry hat and the deep-set eyes. That’s cool. Maybe the government did it on purpose to show one of their rivals? I dunno.

  5. Homfrog says:

    Yerson misspelled “Forehead”.

    thats quite cool. however i think its just a coincedence. very nice though = ) whats area 51?

  7. FirePaw says:

    Wow, thats really freaky! Awesome. :D

  8. James says:

    I think that is a really poor face couldn’t even see it until i saw the labeled image, and even then it is pretty rubbish.

    I really like that. It does look like a mean face. Great

    I think it looks like an alien. And how appropriate for Area 51.

    ive been to that spot in google earth i googled area 51 and that spot came up and i didnt c that face maybe photoshoped a little bit but it is a good google earth illusion

  16. Connor says:

    i cant see it? where is it

    Looks more like one of the ‘greys’ to me.

    Large forehead, big bug eyes and a tiny mouth.

    Conspiracy?? ;)

  18. Terra says:

    I can see an even more detailed dragon head. His left eye is the dragons eye and the white spoltches is his snout and underbelly plates. Then his horn is the eybrow of the right eye? See him?

  19. Pancake says:

    holy crap, this is crazy! and he’s got a sweet gotee!

  20. Kain says:

    A little far-fetched, but I can see how you would see a face in the image. All-in-all a nice find, Nacho! But not as detailed and clear as some of the other “face” illusions on here.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Wow that`s so cool

  22. Kain says:

    I actually see a second face within the picture. Look to the left of the pointed out face, and you will see a lighter patch of ground. Directly to the left of the original “face”‘s eyes is the second faces forhead. Above the arrow which reads “nose” is the second faces nose. The arrow tip of the red line that says “Nose” is also covering it’s mouth, and directly below it is the second face’s chin.

    This one is far more interesting than the ones I’ve seen from Google Earth before- I don’t see Jesus.. not Hannibal Lecter, either.. I do see very mean face though- almost looks like Nixon in a odd way..


  24. Da Man says:

    awesome! love those google earth illusions

  25. DC says:

    This is awesome! Reminds me of the face on Mars in Cydonia Mensae.

  26. Z says:

    I’m not so sure on this one. I didn’t see anything until I read the title and I saw the red arrows pointing it out. It is one of those things where we see what we are told to see. Especially when it comes to faces, like that Mars face!

    i guess its a good illusion cuz everybody can see what he wants… or just a very bad one cuz being area 51 makes you imagine bullsh*t

    don’t yoy think it’s a bit of a coincidence that it’s close 2 area 51.

    But what i whant to know is how does this person know where area 51 is

    Well it’s not photoshopped that I can tell. Here it is in maps.google.com, only upside down.

    I don’t know about you guys, I think it’s pretty cool though. It’s also not very hard for me to see either… I saw it right away.

    You people that can’t see it aren’t trying, it is so obviously I V Lenin. He must have hired out aliens to sculpt out his smirking expression on th US’s most secret ground to show who really won the cold war. Why he wanted them to include the enormous tumor on his upper right forehead i don’t know.

  37. Anonymous says:

    Jesus? …Hannibal Lecter? … Maybe…

    It looks more like the ‘Creature from the Black Lagoon’ to me.

  38. Not At School Anymore says:

    Yes i beleive that there are aliens not so sre there is an area 51 though. I do think that you people that get to much into this kinda thing are paranoid! seriously! When we actually find an aliean then you can freak out about this kinda stuff but until it happens why keep making these rumors. I wont bellieve in area 51 until i see.

    thank you

    my hubby recons the google earth folk get board, and put these images in. A Dragon in china, an Alien face near area 51 etc.

    strange that you can find such weird figures on the earth…

    hmmm…stop taking the drugs you lot and you might see a bit more reality. seems we’re having some trouble finding genuine optical illusions…..

    I have seen better google earth, illusions, I guess it sort of looks like a streched out face, the eyes look very strange to me, and yes he spelled ‘forehead’ without the first e. I don’t see a dragon either.

  43. SA2Tails says:

    I disagree with all those saying it’s a stretch. You can see all the parts of the face very clearly, and they are all the correct shape (His left eye and lips are particularly impressive).

    By the way, the first picture shows it better. >_>

    This is probably the best Google Earth illusion I’ve seen, as all the others were either deliberate or could be explained by things like image stitching.

  44. RavenII says:

    I think it looks more like a skull/skull x-ray from the left side of the head. Kind of.

  45. CoMutiny says:

    Looks like Kane from Command And Conquer! XD

  46. Anonymous says:

    if it is “very detailed”, why did you have to put a diagram showing the forehead, eyes, and the rest?

  47. NachoBizznez says:

    Oh Ya! It’s not an illusion, just an interesting spot on the map. I’m happy with my first submission!

    Cool very cool ;)

  50. Anonymous says:

    This is pretty good. I saw the face right away. The diagram isn’t pointing to the mouth though. The mouth isn’t that close to the nose. It’s further down.

  51. Shauzia says:

    Theres no need to point it out, we can all see it perfectly ;)

  68. natashavictoria says:

    it actually looks like an alien face with that big forehead and small face with close set features… kinda weird since it’s right outside of area 51

    The road just under all of that is the famous “groom lake road”!

    another thing…if mars had a polar flip, this face is in the same spot that the face on Mars is!!!the face here on Earth is upside down South is up down is North.

  75. Xovan says:

    Thats really creepy.

    Also, if you head 180 degrees you can just about see the face of an infant of boy. Quite hard to spot.

    All I have to say is people see what they want to see. It “kind of” looks like a face, i wouldn’t get too excited though, if you stare at it long enough, people are just gonna see what they want to.

  86. Woodcrow says:

    There’s Too many face’s around area 51… near Groom lake.

    i even saw an Skull slight left and major up of groom lake(entrance i think)

    There is too many Extra-ordinare things Close to area 51 and i really support alien doings there.(i think :P)
    Search this one: Unsolved mystery
    its close to Area 51 and there are many thing that i guess are unexplained there.

  87. Woodcrow says:

    Oh i guess there is an violation here about double-posting but there is no “edit” button on your own post :(

    near the “unsolved mystery” i said earlier.
    there are many moving rocks in it (especially on the “racetracks” places.)

    Here’s another one Just use the directions button

    “Lights off on Grandstand” lat=36.69289, lon=-117.569268

    “Lights off on Grandstand” lat=36.69289, lon=-117.569268

    To me, I don’t care if you have objections, it looks like the guy (or whatever) is putting his finger to his mouth and saying “Shh.” Or something.

    Meh, that’s enough mind-benders for me anyway.
