This is the left-eye view of a stereo pair showing the terrain surrounding NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on the rover's 189th sol on Mars (July 15th, 2004). It was assembled from images taken by the rover's navigation camera at a position referred to as Site 72, which is at the base of the "West Spur" portion of the "Columbia Hills." The 360-degree view is presented in a cylindrical-perspective projection with geometrical seam correction.

See PIA06711 for 3-D view and PIA06713 for right eye view of this left eye cylindrical-perspective projection.
