Anaglyph Image of Moon

The glasses should be placed so that the right eye looks through the blue filter and the left eye looks through the red filter. 

The image taken from Honolulu is displayed in blue.  The Swannanoa image is displayed in red.  If we compare our two eyes to the two cities on the Earth, if we look toward the Moon with North up, Honolulu corresponds to the right "eye" and Swannanoa corresponds to the left "eye".  Many thanks to Michael Collins for producing the blue/red anaglyph from our images!
