THEMIS Image of the Day, November 18, 2016. Today’s false color image shows part of Terra Sabaea. This area lies to the west of the Isidis Planitia impact basin, and near one of the candidate landing sites (Jezero Crater) for NASA’s Mars 2020 rover.
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.
