3D Full Moon


Get out your
red/blue glasses and check
out this satisfying
stereo anaglyph
of the Full Moon.

A corresponding stereo image pair, intended for
cross-eyed viewing,
is also available through this link.

Regardless of your preferred technique
for stereo
, the 3D effect comes from combining pictures of the same scene
taken at different angles -- mimicking the slightly different
perspective of each eye.

Perhaps surprisingly for
Earthdwellers, getting two pictures of the
Full Moon from different angles only requires a little patience.

In this case, photographer Laurent Laveder used pictures taken
months apart, one in November 2006 and one in January 2007.

He relied on the Moon's continuous
or wobble as it orbits to produce two shifted images of
a Full Moon.
