THEMIS Image of the Day, October 18, 2018. This false-color VIS image shows part of the floor of Antoniadi Crater, a very large crater located north of Syrtis Major Planum.
The various colors indicate differences in composition across the crater floor, which points to a geologically complex history. This is also supported by the various details, such as wrinkle ridges and pits.
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.
