Red-blue anaglyph of a chain of lunar craters
This chain of lunar craters on the Moon was photographed by Chandrayaan-1's Terrain Mapping Camera (TMC) on April 18, 2009. TMC has simultaneous stereo capability, with three cameras pointing fore, aft, and nadir along the spacecraft's ground track. Any area imaged by TMC can be seen in 3D by overlaying two of these three images.
