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.

Mars Pathfinder's Pathfinder took the images for this view of the "Rock Garden" on sol 3. Wedge is at lower left; Shark, Half-Dome, and Pumpkin are at center. Flat Top, about four inches high, is at lower right. The horizon in the distance is one to two kilometers away.

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.
