THEMIS Image of the Day, September 2, 2016. Today’s false color image shows an unnamed crater in Noachis Terra. The paired small craters near the center may be where a binary asteroid struck. The THEMIS 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.
