THEMIS: Crater – false color

Landslide in Cimmeria crater (THEMIS_IOTD_20150526)THEMIS Image of the Day, May 26, 2015. The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. These false color images may reveal subtle variations of the surface not easily identified in a single band image. Today’s false color image shows part of an unnamed crater in Terra Cimmeria. Note the landslide deposit on the inner rim and floor of the crater.
