This March 18, 2014, stereo view from NASA's Curiosity Mars rover spans 160 degrees, centered southward, with an outcrop of eroded sandstone in the foreground. It appears three dimensional when viewed through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left.

This 160-degree, stereo view from NASA's Curiosity Mars rover is centered southward toward a planned science waypoint at "the Kimberley," with an outcrop of eroded sandstone in the foreground. The panorama appears three dimensional when viewed through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left. It combines several frames taken by the Navigation Camera (Navcam) high on the rover's mast, during the 574th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars (March 18, 2014).

The scene spans from east-southeast at the left to west-southwest at the right. It is presented as a cylindrical-perspective projection. Separate left-eye and right-eye components of this anaglyph are available as Figure A and Figure B.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages the Mars Science Laboratory Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. JPL designed and built the project's Curiosity rover and the rover's Navcam.
