UNDATED (CNN) -- There's been another one of those weird sightings. But this is no "Virgin Mary in a grilled cheese." This is a big cheese sighted on another planet.
Even other planets have mice, or at least a certain mouse. It is a photo of Mercury, the planet closest to the sun. People are seeing Mickey Mouse!
Is it photoshopped? Definitely not. This is a NASA photograph taken by its messenger mission spacecraft showing what David Blewett with John Hopkins University says is "Three impact craters on Mercury's surface."
The larger one forming Mickey's face is 65 miles across. Blewett says, "The effect of the mouse ears is enhanced because of the shadows in the craters."
It was a summer intern working on the messenger mission who first noticed Mickey's image in the craters. There's a name for seeing a pattern where none really exists. It's called "Pareidolia."
There's a man on the moon, a mouse on Mercury, and an elephant on Mars? Some have seen an elephant shape formed by lava flowing on the red planet. It's a stretch to us but some saw this shape as a mermaid on mars.
The most famous Martian face had the most believers until it was discredited by even better images. And check out big bird formed by the dark spots in the sun's corona. NASA even put out a helpful side by side image.
Remember when Mork, the alien on the Mork and Mindy Show, offered interplanetary travel advice. He says, "Oh, don't ever go to Pluto. It's a Mickey Mouse planet."
Turns out Mercury is the Mickey Mouse planet, inspiring punny headlines like "Mickey on Mercury? That's Goofy."
But hey, Disney might as well milk it. After all, Disney bought Mickey Moo, a cow born with Mickey's silhouette on his side. And this cow has Mickey on his head. So if you see Mickey on mercury, join the club.
