    Very funny, in today's Orlando Sentinel there was a science article on seeing faces in the clouds. Swear to God.

    Yeah, our brains are programmed by evolution to look for specific patterns, in this case faces, even if there aren't really any patterns to be found. Michael Shermer, the guy from Skeptic Magazine, talks a bit about it in this presentation, which is a pretty fun watch in its own right btw.

    The image that was posted is different from the NTSC version. The NTSC version shows the top half of what looks to be a face as well....I'll admit the first time I saw it clear as day, the second time I could see where it could be more coincidence instead of a definitive face, but when I view the DVD's from North America, there's more top to them than what the image displays. Unforunately all the great Macrovision, DSS protection prevents me from taking a screen shot of it.

    Faces are one of the basic primitive shapes that are hardwired into the human visual system (apparently it's kind of important for newborns to know and respond to their mother's face). One side effect of this is that we tend to see faces everywhere.

    But I'm not saying there isn't a deliberate face in the picture - perhaps it's Netter Digital's subtle tribute to Ron Thornton (whose company Foundation Imaging originally created B5s effects, but left acrimoniously after S3 to be replaced by Netter Digital). Watching the scene also really made me appreciate just how well that sunset is done for a scene that lasts only a few seconds..

    Faces, animals, you name it.

    It's quite ironical that JMS once wrote an episode of Twilight Zone about that subject ^^

    I can see the half face. It could also be a fist.

    Dead center, top, it looks like a nose, one cheekbone (on our right), mouth and chin, and the face looks male. There also appears to be a right hand below the chin.

    It's been a long time since I sat looking for shapes in the clouds. Apparently, I'm not as good at it as I used to be. Didn't see a face. I do see a somewhat horizontal line with a vertical line above it. If you're seeing a face in there, it's just a healty imagination.

    I can't seem to paste a frame out of B5 to save my life.....if you look at your 2nd screenshot, top middle....go back to that point in the vids (around the 5:14 mark), and look at the top center of the screen, the actual video goes up a little more to show off what looks much more like a head/face...maybe it's just clouds or the chance way they come together and my minds playing tricks on me, but I swear as I was listening to JMS's commentary last night, that looked dead like a face to me. It will slowly float across the screen.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks!
    There is no panning in that shot on my discs, but the cropping was done separately for the PAL version (which I have) and the NTSC version (which I'm assuming you have) so that might explain it.
