To view this image you need to use coloured glasses with a red filter on your left eye and a blue filter on your right eye. If you don't have these you may also try to view the 3D image as a stereo pair by clicking here.

This stereo image has been created by combining video frames taken 9 seconds apart. At about 7km/sec orbital velocity this corresponds to a separation of 63km. The  average range of 470km gives an angular separation of 7.6. Which makes the image equivalent to viewing an object at about 50cm distance.
