Seeing animals in clouds, or a face in the moon, are examples of pareidolia.

Here's an article from Earthsky.org that explains what's going on, with lots of amazing examples. - Rob

Maybe you’ve seen the proverbial bunny in a patch of clouds, or a clown’s face in a mud splatter on the side of your car? Seeing recognizable objects or patterns in otherwise random or unrelated objects or patterns is called pareidolia. It’s a form of apophenia, which is a more general term for the human tendency to seek patterns in random information. Everyone experiences it from time to time. Seeing the famous man in the moon is a classic example from astronomy. The ability to experience pareidolia is more developed in some people and less in others. LOOK AT THE PHOTOS IN THIS ARTICLE TO LEARN MORE AND TEST YOUR OWN ABILITY TO SEE THINGS THAT AREN’T THERE.
