The Gigantic Face of Antarctica
Is it evidence of an ancient civilization?
YouTube channel Third Phase of Moon shared The Gigantic Face of Antarctica back in August, sent to them from a viewer. What we find by visiting the coordinates 72°00’ 36.00’’ S, 168° 34’ 40.00’’ E is a mysterious face in the ice – seemingly complete with two eyes, a nose, and a mouth. The formation may be compared to the infamous ‘Face on Mars.’
But what is it, really? In their video, Third Phase of Moon describes the anomaly as “something that appears to be a massive…ancient structure of some kind of face that is being revealed for the first time on Google Earth.”
While the prospect of this being a remnant of an ancient civilization is an extraordinary one, the more ordinary explanation is that this is yet another case of pareidolia. This is the human tendency to see faces or patterns where none actually exist.
Zooming out on the map, the “face” does appear to get lost in the noise of other presumably natural formations.
Even so, to the paranormal researcher, where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and likewise no good reason not to investigate.
Linda Moulton Howe followed up on the mysterious Antarctic face (which she refers to ask the “Black Stone Face”) with a fairly lengthy discussion. She focused on the question of why, given that satellite imagery of “the gigantic face” has existed as far back as 2004, it only gained attention this year.
She spoke with retired U.S. Navy Captain Mark Wood, who touched upon topics like alien disclosure, government cover-ups, and the Anunnaki.
Earth is a big place, though. Maybe these things just take time to surface.
The following update comes from Linda Moulton Howe’s original Earthfiles YouTube Channel broadcast on August 28, 2019, about a half-mile-size carved black stone head in the Admiralty Mountains of Antarctica.

Updated August 30, 2019 Admiralty Mountains, Antarctica – On August 20, 2019, ufo_scandinavia announced in Instagram (below) the discovery of a Google Earth September 28, 2012, original satellite image of a massive “the gigantic face” face in the Admiralty Mountains not far from Daniell, Hallett and Adare Peninsulas on the USA’s McMurdo Station side of Antarctica.
Perspective | Retired U. S. Navy Captain Mark Wood
I wanted to ask discuss that question with a military source who has contributed to my Earthfiles investigations for the past decade. The following are some excerpts from my phone discussion with him on Tuesday, August 27th. He is retired U. S. Navy Captain Mark Wood.
Mark Wood holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech and a Master’s Degree in Ocean Engineering from Florida Atlantic University. He is also a Registered Professional Mechanical Engineer (P.E.). He was screened for Aviation Command and was assigned as the Executive Officer of the first Reserve Patrol Squadron to be assigned the new P-3C Update III as well as the Commissioning Commanding Officer of a Reserve Patrol Squadron Augment Unit (VPSAU).
LMH: Mark, why do you think it took from September 28, 2012, until August 20, 2019, for this oriental, alien-type image from Antarctica to reach the public?
Retired Navy Captain Mark Wood: Well, obviously somebody who had control of or access to the high resolution photography that was done of Antarctica didn’t want this image out in the public. It’s not surprising. It ties in with what everyone has talked about regarding when disclosure is going to take place. And anything that would indicate alien presence on the planet is real gets pushed to the back burner and denied or just hidden.
