Abstract

This paper demonstrates that face-like structures are everywhere, and can be detected automatically even with computers. Huge amount of satellite images of the Earth, the Moon, and the Mars are explored and many interesting face-like structure are detected. Throughout this fact, we believe that science and technologies can alert people not to easily become an occultist.
