Google Earth Image Shows Massive Alien Face In Antarctica

Millions are familiar with the face on the surface of Mars photographed in the red planet’s Cydonia region, but official explanations leave much to be desired and many wondering whether if it’s an artifact from an ancient civilization. But now there is a new face to ponder — one revealed from the melting ice of our planet’s frozen South. What’s being referred to as the “Antarctica Face” is causing quite a commotion among UFO hunters, skeptics, and scientists.

Antarctica Aliens or the Remnants of an Ancient Civilization?

The alien face of Antarctica is a sight to behold. It was discovered by Blake and Brett Cousins, who operate the YouTube channel “Third Phase Of Moon.” The pair has become extraordinarily successful as UFO hunters who frequently scan Google Earth for alien images captured from outer space. The brothers have amassed an impressive following over the years with their videos and commentary on UFO sightings and other strange phenomena, that is also reflected on their Facebook page boasting more than 750,000 followers. As of the first week of September 2019, their video on the Antarctica face alone (originally published on August 20, 2019) already received more than 350,000 views.

The Cousins’ mission, according to their Facebook  description, is “to bring unfiltered video, messages & research in the field of ufology directly to the public!” The video of the Antarctica Face is certain to bolster their success and fan base, as well as bring attention to what is already a growing and well-established center of speculation. 

In the Cousins’ video of the strange satellite images, Blake states, “It appears to be a massive, ancient structure of some kind of face that is being revealed for the first time on Google Earth.” 

The Cousins’ YouTube video is captioned “Grey alien face captured in Google Earth map in Antarctica,”as there are clearly facial features that resemble an eye (with the possibility of the second eye just below the snowy landscape), a nose, and a mouth. Above the face may be a helmet.

Although interest in the Antarctica giant face in the mountains is growing by leaps and bounds, the image is actually not new. The satellite depiction by Google Earth was originally recorded on September 28, 2012, in the Admiralty Mountains not far from Daniell, Hallett, and Adare Peninsulas on the USA’s McMurdo Station side of Antarctica, as noted on the website of famous UFO researcher Linda Moulton Howe. “The McMurdo Station,” the website noted, “is a United States Antarctic research station on the South tip of Ross Island, which is in the New Zealand-claimed Ross Dependency on the shore of McMurdo Sound in Antarctica. The half-mile-long alien face is in the Admirality Mountains at the latitude/longitude upper right between Adare and Hallett Peninsulas.”

A Giant Face or Pareidolia?

Of course, skeptics are always quick to point out that the face is merely a product of erosion, which only looks human because our brains developed to see such things — much like seeing faces in the clouds or interpreting meaningful imagery out of a Rorschach test. The technical term for this is “pareidolia” and is the effect that causes the mind to interpret shapes, structures, and patterns as images that seem familiar. 

Live Science explains, “There are a number of theories as to the cause of this phenomenon. Experts say pareidolia provides a psychological determination for many delusions that involve the senses.

Google Earth Mysteries waiting to be seen

The coordinates for the giant face in the snow, that is but one of many google earth mysteries, are 72°00’ 36.00’’ S, 168° 34’ 40.00’’ E, and several Google Earth enthusiasts have suggested that the alien head is about 3520 ft long.

One writer noted, “Sporting what seems to be a proportionate set of eyes, a nose, and a mouth, the eerie ‘visage’ has captured the imagination of conspiracy theorists who contend that Antarctica is home to all manner of esoteric secrets. Numerous observers were quick to note that the potential face bears an uncanny resemblance to the famed ‘Face on Mars’ that is said to sit in the Cydonia region of the Red Planet and was first photographed by NASA’s Viking 1 back in 1976.”

Curiosmos, explained, “Antarctica has become a repository for conspiracy theories, leading many people to speculate about the true nature of the frozen continent. One of the most famous conspiracy theories concerning Antarctica is the alleged, supermassive, snow-topped pyramids lurking in ‘plain sight.’ These alleged structures – which geologists say are no more than natural formations  — are said to be the remnants of extremely ancient civilizations that inhabited Earth before our ‘civilization’ came into existence.”

Scientists have reported that Antarctica has lost nearly 3 trillion tons of ice since 1992, and it could very well be that the thaw is beginning to put the frozen South in a new light. Will we start to see more remnants of an ancient civilization as more ice melts?

Psychics and Archaeologists Solve History's Mysteries

Archaeology can be frustratingly hit or miss — years of tedious digging can lead to nothing. Many discoveries occur during construction excavation, road building, and recently, by drone photography that reveals soil and vegetation disruption over ancient sites.

While most academic archaeologists dismiss psychic research methods for locating ancient objects and sites, others use them with great success, pinpointing exact locations for excavation. Below are examples of successful automatic writing, psychometry, and remote viewing in archaeological research.

Frederick Bligh Bond

Frederick Bligh Bond was a 19th-century British architect, archaeologist, and illustrator. The son of an Anglican minister, Bond was also a member of the London-based Society for Psychical Research (SPR), dedicated to understanding paranormal phenomena such as telepathy and ghosts.

Bond designed school and university buildings, a hospital, and once, a pub, over time becoming the U.K.’s foremost expert in church architecture and restoration. He was also fascinated with gematria, a Kabbalistic system based on the esoteric numerical value of Hebrew letters and words. By applying gematria to measurements of medieval religious structures, Bond discovered sacred symbolism designed into ancient churches, chapels, and abbeys, even if they were little more than ruins.

Bond’s Glastonbury Edgar Chapel Discovery

Glastonbury, in Somerset, is home to the ruins of a magnificent seventh-century abbey. Archaeological investigations show the area had been used or inhabited by occupying Romans and Saxons. While the site has a significant place in church history, it is also connected to Arthurian legends and is said to be the site of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere’s tombs.

The Anglican Church invited Bond, with his deep knowledge of church restoration, to direct archaeological digs at Glastonbury in 1908 — thus began the paranormal field of psychic archaeology in modern times. By combining his two passions, ancient religious sites and psychic exploration, Bond invented the controversial discipline, much to the dismay of academics and scientific method-based archaeologists.

Bond and his friend John Bartlett, another SPR member, devised a plan — to attempt to make contact with long-dead abbey residents via automatic writing. Glastonbury, the supposed site of the mythic Avalon, held other mysteries.

After his crucifixion, the gospels state that Christ’s body was entombed by his disciple Joseph of Arimathea. A wealthy man, Joseph had kept his devotion to his teacher hidden from authorities. Centuries later, legends placing him in the midst of Arthurian grail legends and Glastonbury history emerged. Some believed Joseph accompanied Mary Magdalene, said to be Jesus’s widow, and their child Judah, to the British Isles. Those legends continue to swirl around Glastonbury to this day.

Bond wanted to find evidence of the lost Edgar Chapel, founded by Joseph of Arimathea, on the site of the abbey ruins. In November 1907, he and Bartlett, using the automatic writing method, stated the question, “Can you tell us anything about Glastonbury?” They had no idea who might respond, but an answer came back; “All knowledge is eternal and available to mental sympathy.”

Many sittings and conversations later, Bond and Bartlett had coordinates for where to dig for the chapel foundation. In fact, there was a building foundation precisely where Bond directed workers to dig.

Eventually, Bond’s methods and discovery exploded into a maelstrom of controversy; church and academic communities turned their collective attention on debunking and denying the truth of Bond’s discovery. Blasting Bond for employing “pseudoscience,” the facts of the discovery were overlooked in favor of campaigning to discredit Bond and his methods.
