                   NEAR image of the day for 2000 Dec 13


                             The Saddle in 3-D

          Several frames from a rotation movie NEAR Shoemaker took
          on September 19, 2000, from an orbit 100 kilometers (62
          miles) above Eros, were combined to create these 3-D
          views of the saddle region. 3-D images made using the
          red and blue color technique are called anaglyphs and
          must be viewed through red-blue 3-D glasses.

          Because of the combined rotation of Eros and spacecraft
          motion, the images were rotated to create the 3-D views.
          The images all show the same area but use two movie
          frames separated by increasing amounts to give greater
          3-D depth (from not enough to too much). The first image
          in the upper left has no depth; the image at upper right
          is made from adjacent movie frames, while the remaining
          images are separated by 2, 5, 10 and 15 movie frames.

          Built and managed by The Johns Hopkins University
          Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland,
          NEAR-Shoemaker was the first spacecraft launched in
          NASA's Discovery Program of low-cost, small-scale
          planetary missions. See the NEAR web site for more
          details (http://near.jhuapl.edu) .
