3D anaglyph image of the moon

Please use red-blue glasses when you look at the image!

The three dimensions of the moon show if we watch the bent terminator (the border of the shadow) draw a curve
on the quarter moon's surface. The graphical trick of creating an anaglyph out of two moon images

is one of the ways to let us see our neighbour in space as the "ball" it really is.
