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.

Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko in 3D A 3D view of the comet composed from images taken by the OSIRIS camera and NavCam. The resolution of the two cameras is quite different, so it took some processing to make it work as a stereo pair. The left-eye image is the original OSIRIS photo; the right-eye image is a synthetic one made by warping the OSIRIS photo to the shapes of features visible in the NavCam photo.

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. Download the full-resolution single-eye images to use in your own stereo viewing applications:

This has to be one of my favorite 3d anaglyphs of all time. look at those cliff faces, and how the neck looks eroded away. very very cool. what an exciting journey, so much more awesomeness to come.
