THEMIS: Pit and dunes in Rabe Crater

Broken floor and dunes in Rabe Crater (THEMIS_IOTD_20170322)THEMIS Image of the Day, March 22, 2017. Today’s false color image shows part of the floor of Rabe Crater’s western floor, including a deep pit and a portion of the extensive dune field found in this crater. (A view of a nearby part of this crater’s floor and sheet of dunes is here.)

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.
