Vesta's "Snowman" (3D)
Vesta's "Snowman" (3D) To make this 3D view of the "Snowman" crater chain on Vesta, Tayfun Öner first created a global 3D model of Vesta from the Dawn mission's rotation movie, then mapped a higher-resolution image of the snowman to it, then rendered two views of the craters from two different perspectives and combined them into a red-blue anaglyph.
