BEVERLY, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Recent NASA photos of the so-called “Face on Mars” look more like pictures of a cat box, but a new computer-enhanced photo reveals that something odd may be on the surface of Mars.

Imaging expert Dr. Mark Carlotto enhanced the latest Mars photos by removing atmospheric haze and adjusting for differing positions of the sun.

His photos clearly show an object with symmetry consistent with a human face, although the “face” has eroded somewhat since its picture was first taken 22 years ago.

Carlotto says it’s impossible to determine whether the face is real until more photos are taken of the right side.

In the meantime, Carlotto says he’s more interested in an mysterious object near the face called “the Fortress,” which appears to have straight sides and enclosed walls.

Although more research is needed to determine whether the objects are artificial, Carlotto says the face and fortress may be a alien “billboard” similar to the monolith in 2001: A Space Oddysey.
