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. More formats: Left stereo | Right stereo | Flicker gif

This is a red-blue anaglyph. Use 3D glasses (red over left eye, blue over right) to see it in 3D.
