THEMIS Image of the Day, October 9, 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 Arabia Terra. A dark blue tone in this false color image is often associated with basaltic sand.
