Each panorama movie is available in two file sizes. The small movies display at the same size on your computer screen as the large movies, but the small movies do not allow you to zoom in on as much detail as the large movies do. All movies are a full circle (360 degrees) unless noted otherwise.

This 180 degree view from the inside of the quarry opens at the "stairs of death." Moving to the right, the three tablets indicate the location of the so-called "parachute jump."
