Martian Surface as Seen by Phoenix

This anaglyph, formed from a mosaic of images acquired by NASA's Phoenix Lander's Surface Stereo Imager on the 13th through the 36th sols, or Martian days, of the mission (June 7, 2008 to July 1, 2008), shows a stereoscopic 3D view of the Martian surface near the lander. In the bottom left is a trench dug by Phoenix's Robotic Arm. In the bottom right is one of Phoenix's two solar panels.

The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.
