If you see Mars, you are right! That is Mars. Now look closer. What do you see? Do you see a female figure, standing on a ledge? A "dark lady," perhaps? Maybe even a "weird 'dark lady,'"? An "alien woman," if you will? Maybe you're feeling a little fratty and you'd prefer to describe what you see as "space boobs"? Right over there?

We see you, blob. We see you.
