Explanation: Have you ever seen the Man in the Moon? This common question plays on the ability of humans to see pareidolia — imagining familiar icons where they don’t actually exist. The textured surface of Earth’s full Moon is home to numerous identifications of iconic objects, not only in modern western culture but in world folklore throughout history. Examples, typically dependent on the Moon’s perceived orientation, include the Woman in the Moon and the Rabbit in the Moon. One facial outline commonly identified as the Man in the Moon starts by imagining the two dark circular areas — lunar maria — here just above the Moon’s center, to be the eyes. Surprisingly, there actually is a man in this Moon image — a close look will reveal a real person — with a telescope — silhouetted against the Moon. This featured well-planned image was taken in 2016 in Cadalso de los Vidrios in Madrid, Spain. Do you have a favorite object that you see in the Moon?

说明: 你看过月面的人脸吗?这个常见的问题,与人类空想性错视(连想到熟悉但实际上不存在的图案)的能力有关。满布纹理的满月所引发的诸多图腾联想,并非只是出现在现代的西方文化里,更是贯穿古今并交织在世界各地的民间传说里。举例来说,通常因主观视觉上月亮的指向而异,与月面图案相关的传说有广寒仙子及玉兔等。另一种月面幻觉则是“月亮上的人脸”,在此说之中,月亮中上方的二个黝黑圆形月海是眼睛。在这张影像中,令人惊奇的是如果仔细检视,月亮中还真的有个有望远镜为伴的男人,二者的剪影就出现在月亮前方。这张精心策划的主题影像,是在2016 年摄于西班牙马德里的Cadalso de los Vidrios。在月亮上,有看见你最喜欢的月面物体吗?
