NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity used its navigation camera to take the images combined into this stereo view of the rover's surroundings on the 958th sol, or Martian day, of its surface mission (Oct. 4, 2006).

This view is presented as a cylindrical-perspective projection with geometric seam correction. The image appears three-dimensional when viewed through red-green stereo glasses.
