Perfect Conditions Without Even Trying

February 8, 2005

You know those pictures that if you stare at them from just the right distance in just the right way, a 3-D image will appear? I've always had trouble with those things -- when I can actually get one of the "holograms" to appear it's usually after a few minutes of trying.

Then APOD put up one of their own. Turns out that given the size of the image and the distance I sit from my monitor, I was able to make the image appear within a few seconds.
