The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on 5 September received a 3-dimensional ‘anaglyph’ image of the Chandrayaan-3 Vikram lander from the south polar region of the lunar surface. ISRO released the images just a day after the ‘Vikram Lander’ was set into sleep mode at around on Monday morning. 

"In this 3-channel image, the left image is positioned in the red channel, while the right image is placed in the blue and green channels (creating cyan). The difference in perspective between these two images results in the stereo effect, which gives the visual impression of three dimensions. Red and cyan glasses are recommended for viewing in 3D," ISRO stated.
