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.

3D view of Philae's selected landing site On September 15, 2014, the Rosetta mission announced the selection of a landing site for Philae: "Site J," located on the top of the head of the comet. The site was selected because it had relatively few large boulders and steep slopes compared to the other four proposed sites.

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.
