I was messing around in photoshop with some images from the Hubble Gallery, because I wanted to make some cool backgrounds for my desktop, and I started freaking out because by just altering the colors and brightness on the images -- VERY CLEAR PICTURES of aliens, alien craft, HUMAN PEOPLE, ANIMALS, PLANETARY OBJECTS, and a whole host of other shit seem to be in the other colors of the nebula rather than just using the whole visible spectrum.

You can verify this with ANY IMAGE FROM MOST NEBULAS, JUST BY DOING WHAT I SHOW YOU AND ON YOUR PC.

SERIOUSLY -- Click this and go to my youtube videos. I made three or four so far THIS NEEDS TO BE ANNOUNCED TO EVERYONE :

1st Video -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLSlVz0G-D8
2nd Video -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYP7CkiUj1k
3rd Video -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AN_yMjspTaY

I KNOW PEOPLE POST ALOT OF CRAP ON YOUTUBE -- THIS ISN'T FAKE.

I wouldn't come into THIS community and show you FAKE crap. I respect this community, and ***I WOULD NOT BE POSTING THIS IF THIS WASN'T 100% REAL***.

Someone please get back with me on how to clean up these images a little better and also how to **GET IN TOUCH WITH SOMEONE IN THE MEDIA** If you can get in touch with me about this, my email and contact info is in my youtube page's profile link.

To contact the media you hire a public relations firm. You can find them in the phone book.

wow that was amazing. Interstellar debris that is a face? really? Soooo... when that star blew up someone did it to create a face. I guess that's like having a stellar fireworks display that you can only view from very far away and have to have an incredible lack of knowledge on how dust/debris fields are created in a stellar nursery

Somewhat less cruelly than the other commenters:

Aaron: evolution has made the human brain into an unsurpassed pattern detecting machine. So much so that even when confronted with something that is completely random it will try to find patterns. The human face is a pattern that we can detect and understand from infancy.

In essence you are seeing what you want to see, very much like seeing shapes in clouds.

At the risk of sounding cruel or snotty - but why wasn't this blatantly obvious in the first place? Those pictures are literally thousands of miles, if not millions of miles apart. Finding faces or objects in such large distances would perhaps seem about as fun as cloud gazing, but no one would actually think there's people in the clouds these days. How do people fool themselves into thinking such incredulous things while throwing all critical thinking and perspective out the window?


I of course have my own opinions, but I like to throw the question out there for food for thought.

the hourglass nebula doesnt have an hourglass in it nor does the Horsehead have a real Horse head. the Witch head nebula wasn't made by witches. To put it plainly, you can call it the Funny abstract face nebula but it doesn't mean that someone made a nebula light years across and plant a very poorly made face in it

If that's mind-blowing, imagine if there were galaxies in the shapes of all the letters!

I've been looking and can't find any aliens.
