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 the Murray Buttes, Gale crater, Mars (wide) A strip of black sand dunes separates Curiosity's landing site in the flat northern floor of Gale crater from the enticing rocks of Mount Sharp. A gap in the dunes occurs in a field of buttes, which the rover team has named for Bruce Murray, a founder of The Planetary Society. Two HiRISE images taken on August 17 and 22, 2008, allow a 3D view of the landscape.

The full-resolution version is only half of the full resolution of the data. For a zoomed-in view on the buttes at center that enlarges to full HiRISE resolution, click here.

The original data can be found at the HiRISE website: PSP_009650_1755 and PSP_009716_1755.

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. Download the full-resolution single-eye images to use in your own stereo viewing applications:
