Anaglyph images of the Aswan cliff showing the overhang before (left) and after (right) it collapsed. The anaglyph images were prepared for evaluating the volume of overhang that detached in July 2015. Note the orientation between the two images is different.

The images are best viewed using red–green/blue 3D glasses.

A series of additional views of the cliff is available from the menu to the right, under "related images".
