Anaglyph image of Noctis Labyrinthus
Anaglyph images can be created from data acquired by the nadir channel of the HRSC camera system operated by DLR on board ESA’s Mars Express spacecraft, which is directed vertically onto the surface of Mars, and the oblique view obtained by one of the four stereo channels. By using red-blue/cyan or red-green glasses, they allow realistic, three-dimensional views of the landscape.
The view into the valleys, which are over 5000 metres deep, becomes impressive. When viewing for more time using 3D glasses, even topographical details come into view, such as the wind deposits on the flanks of the mesas that are arranged in a strikingly rhythmic pattern, or tectonic fractures and subsidence of blocks of terrain on the originally level surfaces of the mesas.
