Opportunity’s Close-up of ‘Oileán Ruaidh’ (Stereo) by NASAJPL on Flickr.Via Flickr:
An iron meteorite is the latest quarry for NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity.
The rover’s cameras revealed the meteorite on its trek to its long-term destination, Endeavour crater, in images taken on Sol 2363 (Sept. 16, 2010), the 2,363rd Martian day of the rover’s mission on Mars. This view was taken with the navigation camera on Sol 2368 (Sept. 21, 2010), after a drive the preceding sol to get close to the rock. The meteorite is about half a meter (20 inches) long. The scene appears three-dimensional when viewed through red-blue glasses with the red lens on the left. available on iTunes
