KENNEDY ON MARS 1991 - A PAREIDOLIA EXAMPLE|
In 1991, Ted Kennedy's face was seen in this NASA photo of Mars and reported in the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers. This form seen in Nature had a sufficient similarity to the form of an image stored the mind of many people. This perception was easily shared with others using a newspaper story. The unconscious brain processing easily presented people with a match, but only for those who were familiar with images of Ted Kennedy. Nobody was actually fooled by the image.
