Rosetta at asteroid Lutetia

Red-Cyan stereo anaglyph of asteroid Lutetia created from ESA images. You will need red-cyan glasses to see the 3D effect.

Around the same time Spain was beating the Netherlands in the World Cup, the comet chasing spacecraft Rosetta passed close by asteroid Lutetia.

You can read the story and see some fantastic images at the ESA website, and you can download images from here.

I made a 3D anaglyph from two consecutive images using the GIMP, they asteroid rotated too much for a good 3D effect, but you can still see the cental blug quite well.
