2. Save it on a list
3. Put on your Oculus Quest 2 / Quest 1 VR headset. On the left side of your Oculus homepage menu, click on “Saved”
4. You should be able to see your saved Mars 360 photo
5. Click on “Watch” and it will open an Oculus Browser
6. The 360 photo will load
7. On the top left corner of the photo, you will see the “Enter VR” button
8. Click “Enter VR” and it will go into a full immersive view of the Mars 360 photo
