THEMIS Image of the Day, December 21, 2016. Today’s false color image shows part of Aram Chaos. This is an ancient impact crater that was filled with sediments, flooded, and eroded.
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.
