Santa Maria in 3-D This stereo panorama combines views from the left eye and right eye of Opportunity's panoramic camera, to appear three-dimensional when seen through blue-red glasses. The rover was looking eastward across Santa Maria crater when it took the multiple frames the rover took during its Sols 2453 and 2454 (Dec. 18 and 19, 2010) and which the Pancam team assembled into this image. The panorama spans 125 compass degrees, from north-northwest on the left to south-southwest on the right. Portions of the rim of a much larger crater, Endurance, appear on the horizon.
