THEMIS: Lohse Crater’s central peaks

Lohse Crater in false color (THEMIS_IOTD_20170712)THEMIS Image of the Day, July 12, 2017. Today’s false color image shows part of the floor of Lohse Crater in Noachis Terra. This large crater has several central peaks that cluster and almost form a ring.

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.
