This 3D stereoscopic image can be seen by those lucky enough to control their eyes enough to merge these two images into one in the middle, by going cross-eyed. The left image is taken by Paul Stewart in New Zealand, and amazing astronomer. At the same time, I took the image in the right on the east coast of Australia, around 9:30pm AEST using a 9.25 SCT telescope. The slight separation is only just enough to give a small sense of depth around the edges where the shadows and the craters reveal the curvature of the full moon. It is subtle and would work better with more separation geographically, or taken from space. Still, it is a fun experiment to try if you have a friend to coordinate with some way away from you!

Available also in Red/Cyan Anaglyph if you have some 3D glasses lying around:
