Many prominent rocks near the Sagan Memorial Station are featured in this image, taken in stereo by the Imager for Mars Pathfinder (IMP) on Sol 3. 3-D glasses are necessary to identify surface detail. "Shark," "Half-Dome," "Pumpkin," "Flat Top" and "Frog" are at center. Little Flat Top is at right. The horizon in the distance is one to two kilometers away.
