THEMIS Image of the Day, February 3, 2016. Today’s false color image shows part of Ophir Chasma. The wavy edges of the image are a result of elevation variations and a unique period of spacecraft orientation. 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.
