NASA Mars orbiter finds 'grinning' face of Ed Asner in an impact crater

NASA/HiRISE I'm a big fan of pareidolia, the human tendency to spot familiar objects in random shapes.

Mars is a wonderland for pareidolia, giving us gifts from a pebble that resembles a robot leg to alien-looking faces spotted in rock formations .

The HiRise camera team for NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is based at the University of Arizona.

The HiRise Twitter account offers a delightful feed of red planet images, including a tweet this week showing a well-preserved impact crater .

Asner is a seven-time Emmy award winner known for his work on the The Mary Tyler Moore Show in the 1970s.
