Martian Surface as Seen by Phoenix



This anaglyph, acquired by NASA's Phoenix Lander's Surface Stereo Imager on Sol 16, the 16th Martian day of the mission (June 10, 2008), shows a stereoscopic 3D view of the Martian surface near the lander. The large rock seen near the top center of the image is informally called "Winkies" and the rock below it is informally called "Quadlings."

The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.
