This is a red-blue anaglyph. Use 3D glasses (red over left eye, blue over right) to see it in 3D, or scroll down for other stereo or flicker gif versions.

3D view of Curiosity's landing site from HiRISE For a 3D view of the landing site, HiRISE took two photos from slightly different angles. The white dot marks the spot where Curiosity landed. The scale at full resolution is about 1 meter per pixel. North is about 7 degrees to the right of up (the images are aligned along Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's orbital path).

Stereo versions

Stereo images are composed of one image for the left eye and one image for the right eye. Crossed-eye stereo presents the right-eye image on the left, and left-eye image on the right. Parallel-eye stereo presents the left-eye image on the left, and the right-eye image on the right. A flicker gif presents the left- and right-eye images alternately.
