Left-eye view of a color stereo pair for PIA11960
Right-eye view of a color stereo pair for PIA11960
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its navigation camera to take the images that have been combined into this stereo, 180-degree view of the rover's surroundings during the 1,854th Martian day, or sol, of Spirit's surface mission (March 21, 2009).
This view combines images from the left-eye and right-eye sides of the navigation camera. It appears three-dimensional when viewed through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left.
The rover had driven 13.79 meters (45 feet) westward earlier on Sol 1854.
West is at the center, where a dust devil is visible in the distance. North on the right, where Husband Hill dominates the horizon; Spirit was on top of Husband Hill in September and October 2005. South is on the left, where lighter-toned rock lines the edge of the low plateau called "Home Plate."
This view is presented as a cylindrical-perspective projection with geometric seam correction.
