Pareidolia
From Wikipedia:

Quote
Pareidolia (/pærɪˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is the tendency to interpret a vague stimulus as something known to the observer, such as seeing shapes in clouds, seeing faces in inanimate objects or abstract patterns, or hearing hidden messages in music.

Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, ...

Well, some of us are looking at satellite images and clouds from above on a daily basis. I think it should be entertaining if we share, what our brain makes of things.

I had a blog post on this, back in 2011: Arctic Faces.

Pareidolia is fun!

I thought those were a llama (I started typing lama, whoops) and a seal.  I see "lineations" in the Petermann Glacier tongue!  :)

I don't know if lineations in a glacier qualify, but hey, who am i to judge. Could be a snake also, right? ;)

I do see the Llama (as in Lloyd) but i don't see the seal.

Well spotted by Niall Dollard here:

Beautiful sentinel image (dated 030619) of the blue ice at the head of Tanquary Fiord, north central Ellesmere Island.

Reminds me of a leopard's head.

Not sure what i'd call it or the apparition on it's back, doesn't look benign.

“There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late

I see a Picasso horse (the head's ears at 76ºN 130ºW) with some (blue) 'dirt' flying behind.

Which is the best answer to Sep-2012 ASI lost (compared to 1979-2000)?
50% [NSIDC Extent] or
73% [PIOMAS Volume]

Volume is harder to measure than extent, but 3-dimensional space is real, 2D's hide ~50% thickness gone.
-> IPCC/NSIDC trends [based on extent] underestimate the real speed of ASI lost.

A frantic baby elephant makes a dash for the Bering Strait.
