It's a streetlight.

This thing is a hexagon.

It's a good thing it doesn't have a beard.

Perhaps in profile, as a caricature.

I can see it, if you look at the far right of the cloud as a profile shot. But that's just the human mind trying to make a correlation with a known shape. That's why people see Jesus everywhere and Rorschach test work.

It looks like a puppy's head...

Nebula looks fat.

The hotbed of star birth, called NGC 3324, is full of hot young stars,...

Might be NSFW.

Rotate the image and play with the contrast and colors until you get whatever it takes to make it the "Jesus Nebula".

Then, people will be asking how much funding it will take to send a ship there. Make up a number.

Uncanny.

People who see a human face are fooling themselves, clearly it's a chimp.

Maybe Nagilum in his blurry moments. If you turn your head 90 degrees clock wise and squint your right eye...


/admit it, you tried it.

So whatever happened to the guy that decided to stay behind with him? Did he die? Hyper-evolve? Travel back in time and invent reality TV?

Don't know how anyone doesn't see that.
 
2012-02-02 01:31:01 AM
Maybe, just maybe if you have to explain where it is in the picture and how it is supposed to resemble a face, then perhaps....


There's no face in the nebula!!!

Space Face is watching you masturbate.
