The lunar libration allow to see the Moon under two slightly different angles. And this is exactly how we can sens the relief, because our two eyes are separated by a few centimeters and then see the same object under two different angles. Our brain combines those two images to allow us to sense the object in 3 dimensions. Close one eye, and you'll lost the relief of the things.
By taking two pictures of the Full Moon at two separated moments (November 2006 and January 2007), I have realized this view in 3D (called "anaglyph") of the Moon. To appreciate it, take your red and blue glasses. It's amazing!

Thank to Hanno Falk who gives me the idea to realize this anaglyph by creating such an image using two of the pictures of my animation published in SpaceWeather.
