Now this is what I call a face on Mars! This is an image, taken by the Mars Global Surveyor, of the the Galle crater. And yes, it looks rather like a smiley face.
Named after the astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle, this crater is actually huge. 230 km in diameter. In fact, that smile is really a curved mountain range!
The best part is that this isn’t even the only smiley crater on Mars. There’s another one near Nereidum Montes. Because Mars is a happy little planet.
Also, a big smiley crater on Mars should be familiar to any fans of Watchmen. That scene on Mars near the end of the story? It’s actually set in the Galle crater!
