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.

Vesta in 3D Eighteen images taken on August 20, 2011 have been combined and draped over a 3D model of Vesta in order to produce this 3D view.

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:
