The Face in the Bluff

Fantastic discovery near Cushman Cave – Face in the Bluff

We are happy to have received a very interesting story from one of our readers.

Around Christmas time 2014 our contributer made a discovery while he was hiking in the area of Cushman Cave.

What he found is truly astonishing a face carved in rock. Not a small face but huge!
The rock is located near Cushman Cave in the area Batesville Arkansas.

Face in the Bluff - is the Noticed Discontinuity

Our contributer explains what he has seen:

“Upstream from that bridge is a bluff on the west bank, and in one of my images of that bluff I recorded a face. It is an illusion; if you go north or south a
few feet it disappears. I wondered who else had noticed the “face in
the bluff,” and in my searching I found the Cushman Cave/Dero story.
This illusion, a face, has a snout that resembles that of an elephant,
and the fingers of its hands touch the lower lid of its right eye.
Each hand: two fingers and one thumb; yeah, alien!”

Many thanks to our contributor.

This video shows what happened on March 17 when an CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) hits Earths magnetic field. Two days earlier, sunspot AR1692 had produced a M1-class solar flare that resulted in the CME that hit Earth.

This time lapse shows what happened during four hours over Östersund in Sweden, between 19:20 and 23:35 UT.

The time lapse consists of 2464 raw images for a total data amount of 30Gb.
