This is an anaglyph of an Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Wide Angle Camera (WAC) mosaic of the lunar nearside taken at low-Sun conditions. You will need 3D stereo glasses to see it pop off your screen!
The two perspectives that make up this anaglyph were generated by draping the same low-Sun WAC mosaic of the lunar nearside over the Global Lunar DTM (Digital Terrain Model) 100 m topographic model (GLD100) with two different sub-Earth points.
Planetary scientists use anaglyphs to visualize the 3D structure of planetary surfaces. For example, the HiRISE team has over three thousand anaglyphs of the Martian terrain available for scientific study and public use. This type of visualization is helpful with the intuitive and qualitative interpretation of a scene by revealing geologic relationships that are not obvious from a single 2D image.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
