Depth from bits

There are some computer graphics tricks that have been developed in recent years to derive 3D information from flat 2D photographs. Here are some of my attempts to add some depth to the beautiful photos that have been acquired by NASA from our Solar System.

You may want a lesson in free-viewing stereo pairs. Apologies beforehand about the limited resolution to fit them on a web page. These pictures are stunning as full resolution slides in a stereo viewer. Contact me if you are interested.

Jupiter. A cosmic marble!

Ganymede. A world from another planet.

Saturn. Casts its shadow on its rings while a moon makes an eclipse.

Earth. Imagine being at this viewpoint.
