3-D Lunar Eclipse


Shown above is a 3-D image of the Moon. It was made from images of the lunar eclipses of 2010-12-21 and 2019-01-21 which were fairly similar. During both eclipses the Moon passed near the northern edge of the Earth's shadow at mid-eclipse. Due to differences in the Moon's libration, the Moon's face was tilted to slightly different orientations during each eclipse. The tilt provided just enough of a difference in the views to produce a natural stereo pair.

To see the Moon as the 3-D sphere it really is, use red/blue glasses to view the above anaglyphic image, which presents the 2010 eclipse to the left eye and the 2019 to the right. If you don't have red/blue glasses but are able to merge stereo images without a stereo viewer, see the stereo version. 2019



3-D Lunar Eclipse


Shown above is a 3-D image of the Moon made from images of the lunar eclipses of 2003-11-08 and 2008-02-20, which were fairly similar. During both eclipses the Moon passed near the southern edge of the Earth's shadow at mid-eclipse.

To see the Moon as the 3-D sphere it really is, use red/blue glasses to view the above anaglyphic image, which presents the 2003 eclipse to the left eye and the 2008 to the right. If you don't have red/blue glasses but are able to merge stereo images without a stereo viewer, see the stereo version. 2008
