Northern Terra Meridiani Rocks and Cliffs in 3-D

October 28, 2003
The top picture shows a 115 kilometers (~72 miles) wide portion of northern Terra Meridiani, a region of vast layered rock outcrops similar to portions of southeastern Utah and northern Arizona on Earth. The white box in this context image, located near 2.2°N, 1.3°W, shows the location of the high resolution stereo view obtained by MOC by combining a picture taken March 10, 1999 (FHA-00541) with one obtained by pointing the spacecraft on May 28, 2001 (EO4-02223). The stereo view, which requires red (left-eye) and blue (right-eye) "3-D" glasses to be seen, covers an area approximately 2.3 km (1.4 mi) wide by 6.2 km (3.9 mi) long. The full-resolution view is seen at nearly 1.5 meters (5 ft) per pixel, a scale at which objects the size of airplanes and school buses might be seen.
