Case File Information

Note from The Black Vault:  The image in this case file was discovered while digging through a massive archive of "raw" photos taken from the surface of Mars.  Many scour these types of photos to see what may be on the surface of Mars.

In this particular case, BlackVault User: Willease (who credits user "Mike_Edwards" for the find) posted this photo that has, what appears to be, a face partially buried in the Martian dirt.

Although this may just be a trick of light, shadows, and this is "only a rock" - it is archived here for research.  

You will also find the high-resolution photo to download below, along with the original source NASA link (live and working as of 2/6/2014).

    I think it looks like there's another one just below but the face looks more worn but the cut of the top of the rock looks the same shape

    It's a hoax you can see that the color of the sand in the backround isn't the right color of on Mars for example search up any other pictures from the mars rover and you will find that the other sand is a darker color.

    I looked at this object as a remote viewing target. It really looks like a statue head damaged.  From the image it is difficult to get the perspective, but the head is about 5 feet from what is left of the chin to the top of the head.  The top is hidden by another rock.  I summoned my channel Y'kao who came.  She said this is rubble from the great war.

When I decided to keep my eyes on it that's when it started to move around. At first I just assumed it was an airplane since they no…
