Enceladus' plumes in cross-eyed stereo
Filed under Enceladus, pretty pictures, Cassini, amateur image processing, Saturn's moons, 3D
Cassini swept past Enceladus' south pole for one last close look before winter darkness swallowed the enigmatic tiger stripe terrain and gathered these dramatic shots of plumes issuing from south polar vents. This is a crossed-eye stereo pair -- stare at the screen and cross your eyes until the two images overlap, then allow your eyes to focus on the overlapped pair to see it in 3D.
