Out of the UK comes this picture of a glacier published in The Daily Mail .
I presume that this image has been re-touched somewhat but it's still an excellent example of pareidolia.
Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon where our brains recognize and distill patterns in random visual or audio stimuli. It is what makes Jesus appear on grilled cheese sandwiches, makes potato chips look like Richard Nixon and makes clouds look like elephants.
Or, in this case, makes it look like Mother Nature is weeping because its getting so hot.
And from Wired’s Science Blog , pictures of glaciers from space…
(Bear Glacier, Alaska)
(Grey Glacier, Chile)
(Byrd Glacier, Antarctica)
