Get out your red/blue anaglyph glasses for a three-dimensional treat. This extreme closeup of the south edge of the Moon's famous Tycho Crater shows melt flows and pools, small craters, sagging slopes that look like ripples, boulders, and part of the crater rim. North is at the top. Image width is about six miles (10 kilometers).

Pairs of images from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter were combined to create the 3D view.
