Martian Pareidolia: An Elephant in Lava Flow
An image released by NASA last week, taken by the Mars Reconaissance Orbiter, shows ancient lava flow on the surface of Mars, in the Elysium Planitia region. Some are saying that the shape of the lava flow looks like an elephant. Hmm. It looks like Jesus to me. (link: space.com)

It's obviously the Elephant Man. So you're both partly right!
