what makes the face of the “man in the moon”?


And does it appear upside down to people in the Southern Hemisphere?

In: Physics

It’s a series of lowlands and craters from meteors. Another way to look at this question is paraedolia. That is the word for the concept of how we see faces in things as humans. Like when we see the image of [Jesus in a dogs butthole](https://m.imgur.com/gallery/qr9Qdcf)

There this thing that your brain does where it sees faces in *everything*. Its called pareidolia, there’s even a subreddit for it, and a quick look at r/pareidolia shows just how far your brain can stretch an image to see a “face” in it.

There’s so many craters in the moon, youd probably see a face on it no matter what
