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.

A landslide in Ceres' far north in 3D Near Ceres' north pole, an asteroid crashed into the steep rim of a hexagonal-shaped crater, causing a large landslide. This 3D image has been rotated to place north down in order to make the lighting more intuitive, and upsized by a factor of two. The whole image is about 125 kilometers across. It is a combination of two images taken on June 21 and 24, 2015, during the Survey phase of the Ceres mission

Combination of images PIA19592 and PIA19593.

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.
