Cthulhu is the most pathetic of the Great Old Ones. After a brief resurrection, it was easily defeated by a human with a wooden boat, making the elder gods a laughingstock of the universe. However, a new threat appeared after Cthulhu's death, referred to as Ghatanothoa. This creature is the firstborn of the pathetic god Cthulhu, but far more powerful, and all the world's countries have banded together to unite against this common threat.
Ghatanothoa has an interesting effect on those who look at it. These victims, upon gazing at the creature, immediately become petrified in their current stance. They lose the ability to move, but their brain and organs continue to function, keeping them alive and conscious in suspended animation. Millions of men, women, and children around the world have turned to stone, frozen in time for all eternity. Although their constant agony and suffering is quite hilarious and a source of entertainment for we rationally minded people, the government considers this creature a threat and have determined to kill it instead of offering it the worship that it deserves.
There is just one problem: unlike medusa, whose power can be nullified by avoiding her eyes, Ghatanothoa's power affects those who gaze at it in any form, directly or indirectly. This means that even those who simply look at its picture, video feed, etc., are affected and immediately turned to stone. This makes it extremely difficult to attack, as anybody who even looks at it through a protected medium is affected.
How can the governments of the world successfully fight against this creature under these circumstances?
