Use red-blue glasses to see the 3D effect. To compose this animation of the nucleus of comet Hartley 2, Daniel Macháček used Sqirlz Morph to morph among the five images of the nucleus that were released by the Deep Impact team on the day of the flyby, November 4, 2010, in a process explained here
. Then Luca Cassioli took sequential frames from the morphed animation and used them as left and right images in this animated GIF.
