Keep in mind that one of the "eyes" is (iirc) a reference-dot, i.e. an
artifact of the camera, not part of the picture in nature.

Also, every picture I've ever seen of the "face" is the SAME IMAGE.
How many times have our various machines passed over Cydonia?
Shouldn't there be more than one image of the site??
If two or three of them show a "face", let me know!
